- Our Blog
You feel misguided. When you started your blog, you thought you could just follow in the footsteps of your favorite blogger, right? Just publish great content and maybe spend some time on social media and you thought the readers would come. But in reality, you find yourself grinding. You stay up late after your 9-5 to write articles. You hustle for every single visitor.
Running a blog requires an insane amount of time. In fact, there’s not enough time in your day to do everything (especially if you have a full-time job, too). From learning new ways to get traffic and scheduling social media posts to building your email list and managing comments, you feel stretched to your limit.
Hands up if you’ve ever seen headlines like these: “Why I Quit My Job to Travel the World” “Man Who Quit 9-to-5 Job Makes $1 Million While Traveling the World” “3 Ways to Quit Your Job and Travel the World Without Going Broke” My guess is that you have, because I see these headlines around everywhere. I’ve even written a few of them (hint: the last one).
Let me guess. You signed up for Mailchimp, AWeber, or Constant Contact and created an opt-in form to snag yourself some new subscribers for your blog. Maybe you even went the extra mile and created a juicy opt-in offer to tempt them to hand over their precious email addresses. Then you posted it on your sidebar and in your footer, and maybe you were smart enough to throw up a feature box too.
