Should You Blog Everyday?

The Art of Blogging

Let’s be honest.

Rules are not that important.

Personally, I’ve never been much of a fan, not because I am some sort of rebel, but because you can always break them. If you look closely, you’ll find examples of folks who ignored some rules and still became successful.

As if rules were meant to be broken.

Take this blogging rules into account:

  • Blog posts should never be over 350 words
  • If you want to post articles, you should move to another format
  • You must post every day

Hey, as a guy who blogs on blogging, I’ve certainly got no problem with blogging advice, but I’d certainly like it to contain the following: it depends.

You’re probably wondering, “What is this all about?” I know, and that’s why I’m going to explain everything first.

Here’s the thing. I’m what you’d call an independent writer. No one selling out to some big media corporation.

I write stuff. You read it. It’s that simple.

Now, I’m very grateful to be able to do this. But it’s not an accident. I’m not some rich guy with nothing better to do than read books and write articles. Daddy never bought me a Ferrari.

All I have is you. My readers. People who love what I do enough that they’re willing to help me keep being able to do it.

There’s no middle man here. I write stuff you like (or hate) and then I say, “Uhh, hey, mind giving me enough money so I don’t starve to death?” And then amazing people like you do. Because you rock. And you’d like to see more of this type of content. So you think to yourself, “Hey, maybe this guy Cristian deserves a good meal,” and then you give me enough money to go buy a cheeseburger.

That’s how it works, and that’s how it should work.

So if you’ve ever liked or shared an article of mine. If you’ve ever read something and thought, “Man, that’s amazing!” If something I’ve written has ever added an ounce of value to your life. Consider throwing me a few bucks.

That’s all it is. A few bucks to feed Cristian and help Cristian write more stuff. It allows me to keep doing what I love doing. And it keeps things simple. No middle man. No bullshit. Just me doing my thing and you reading and (hopefully) liking it.

So, just use the (not so) shiny donate button below and thank you so much for allowing me to do this.

FEAR

afraid

“You are afraid to die, and you’re afraid to live. What a way to exist.” – Neale Donald Walsch

Afraid. To live. To die. To get hurt. To hurt others. Afraid. Of failure. Of success. Of getting stuck somewhere in between. Afraid of doing nothing at all, afraid of overdoing it. Afraid of yourself, afraid of others. Rationalizing. Being practical. Over-intellectualizing. Holding back. Waiting for the right moment and the right place.

Finding excuses. Blaming yourself. Blaming others. Telling yourself that you’ve got enough time. Continue reading

Masks

Nathaniel Hawthorne once wrote, “No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.”

We all act differently around certain people, because we want to impress them, or maybe because we simply don’t want to dissapoint them. And sometimes, indeed, we can’t figure out who we really are.

I once wrote that our freedom is limited only by what we believe to be the perception others have about us. If we’re afraid the world won’t like us for who we really are, then we try our best to “behave.” Continue reading

Dream Big

The Art of Blogging

Visions have their own gravity pull.

What you think, you become. It’s not magic. It’s just psychology. It’s using the reticular activating system. If you want it so much that you think about it all day long, then you just might get it.

Yes, dreams are powerful. We are visual creatures. In a way, everything else is abstract. Vague. Uninspiring.

If you can see it in your mind, you exert effort to hold it in your hand.

You need a vision. You need to dream big. To fall short of achieving greatness.

If failure is the default, then isn’t it better to fail at greatness? To fall short of a crazy big dream?

Karma

Karma. Destiny. Everything happens for a reason. What goes around comes back around.

Somewhere locked inside our souls there lies a hatred of two primordial elements of life: uncertainty and injustice.
