Jonathan's Blogging Journey

I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

The critical affiliate marketing lessons I wished I had known early on.

Hi Jonathan, guys! Sorry I did not figure out how to start a discussion so I write my question here. I wanted to purchase Getnoticedtheme by Michael Hyatt and build my blog on that platform. I really liked it. But I had doubts since my blog will be in Russian, will I be able to translate all the buttons and menu headlines? My cousin who is web programmer said that now almost all platforms should have UTF-8 encoding (dont know if I wrote it right), and I should be able to translate easily and there won't be any jiberish instead of words. Can someone in this group please help me with this? 

Another question is where can I get nice wordpress themes, sort of exclusive ones and those that require minimum efforts - or i should say from minimum people, like designers and webprogrammers. I want to do everything myself, with little help from my cousin web-programmer... but most of the work I am ready to do myself.

Will appreciate your answers!

Hey quick shout of congrats to Jonathan on the mention from Michael Hyatt in his newest video series around skyrocketing your to the next level (you can find him on the 3rd video around 22:58).  https://platformuniversity.com/skyrocket/the-next-level/

That's great Michael I'm glad you are starting a website and a blog to get your story out there. I think that is an important first step and the book ideas very awesome as well.

Keep up the good work and we look forward to your progress reports!

Comment by Michael Elliott on September 3, 2015 at 7:16pm

Hi Everyone!

My name is Michael Elliott. I am 31 years old, have been married for 11 years, and have 3 kids. I recently joined 48 days and I am excited to get more active in the community. I have over 10 years of experience in sales, marketing, customer service, and account management.

My life, like everyone else, has been roller coaster of ups and downs. Over a year ago, I went through a devastating series of events, ultimately resulting in a full nervous breakdown and being hospitalized. By the grace of God and the support of my amazing friends and family, I have done a complete 180 and have a successful career. Unfortunately, I hate my job.

My heart's desire is to take my background and personal journey (the ups, downs, highs, and lows) to help (coach) others through the tough times, discover their passion, and live a life of fulfillment and purpose. I have seen several different doctors and counselors and have been diagnosed with ADHD, which brings on symptoms like anxiety and depresssion if not treated. I believe that God has brought me through all of this so that I can understand and relate to others in similar situations, offering them coaching, support, and encouragement.

I am currently starting a blog/website where I will begin sharing my story. I have also started writing a book, but that is definitely a long term project.

Comment by Richard Cornwell on August 10, 2015 at 6:10pm

I just signed up to this group. I have been away from 48 days for some time. I will, next few days update the profile. It is very very old. I am retired and on a small SS amount. In my area of the country I have been passionately involved in a ministry that give people an opportunity to see the heart of God. This ministry has given me word that I want to express to others. This group looks like an opportunity to express those ideas and earn income to boot. I hope to hear from some of you.

Comment by JRosemarie Francis on July 11, 2015 at 10:48am

I listen to 15 Success Traits of Pro Bloggers every day on Audible. I also purchased the Kindle version.  I have been repurposing my blog to be more in line with my passion and I found this at the perfect time.  Very useful tool. I use it like a manual for blogging. Thanks Jonathan.

Comment by Kevin Reynolds on May 28, 2015 at 7:45pm


Just wanted to say thanks for the webinar that you put on today.

For any that missed the time with Ryan Levesque, IT WAS GOLD!

I look forward to learning from you and trying to bless you and others as I learn about blogging, speaking, writing and wherever this journey is leading us!

I can't wait to see what other resources you offer.
