On Blogging: Do I Have Something To Say?

bloggingI’ve been blogging for a little over five years now. It’s been fun. I’ve got the chance to connect with people from all over the world and learn new stuff. Also, I kind of realized my words matter.

But the guy who’s sitting in his chair, staring at his computer screen, asking himself whether or not to start a blog might be wondering if he has something to say. Continue reading

Mentorship Program

Disclaimer: This is not one of those arrogant moments when I pretend to be an expert in something as volatile and unpredictable as the online world, but I do like to believe that my five years of blogging have offered me enough experience to be able to assist others too.

That being said, I am announcing a Mentorship Program (if you click on the link you’ll be directed on a page on my e-store and read the usual marketing promo bullshit anyone uses these days). But I am not in the business of promoting stuff that doesn’t work, or doing work that I do not believe in.

This is not going to school. This is not some courses, a few pages you get to read, some pictures, and that’s that. This is not some how-to guide I am selling. This is not a shortcut to becoming successful as a blogger.

This is a human experience. Like, you, what people used to do back in 95 or whatever. By that I mean that you get to talk to me. A lot. That you get to have real feedback, real advice based on what you are trying to accomplish.

This program I am offering includes:

  • Unlimited access to me (via e-mail, Facebook, WhatsApp, you name it.)
  • Four hour-long sessions on Skype.

If there’s something about the WordPress platform you’d like to know, about setting up certain social media accounts and developing them, something about style, about writing the posts themselves, about SEO, about the visual aspect and optimizing your website for best results, about readers and how to make sure they keep coming back for more, I’m your guy.

Really.

This is me. This is what I have accomplished in five years. My credentials, so to speak.

But, like I previously stated, my philosophy is this: I am not your teacher. I am not some blogging guru. But I do know a thing or two, and I’d like to offer you as much information and feedback as possible. In a way that inspires and motivates you. In a way that encourages you to go down this path and not feel like you’re blindly walking through a tunnel, hoping to reach the light at the end of it.

I am going to be honest. I am going to tell you as it is. I am going to tell you what needs to be done. I am going to put in a lot of time and effort to making you a lot better than you were before.

That being said, the program costs $249.99. This is for a month, so to speak.

I do not expect you to need more than a month of mentorship.

But I also believe in what I know and what I can teach you, so I’ll offer this: a money back guarantee.

You don’t like the program, you get a full refund. But you won’t.

You’ll like what I have to tell you about blogging. You can check this interview here.

5 Habits of Successful Bloggers

Success reads pretty much like a recipe. You can describe it as a number of habits. Simple, right? Yes. Simple. Not easy, but simple. And most people expect easy and simple.You shouldn’t.

What I learned in five years of blogging

Five years. Five years of daily blogging. Five years since I decided to never give up, no matter what. To keep writing, to keep blogging, to just keep at it for as long as it took.

And what a ride it has been. Around the world, indeed. 200 or so countries. Lots and lots of people, lots and lots of stories… Continue reading
