4 ways to be the best blogger
There’s no one to get pissed off at, except for one person – Yourself.
So, you think you’re the greatest blogger
Somewhere, you heard or read that Google likes content.. So, you write content. But you write content just for the sake of content.
You say, “OK Google, I’ve written content. Now get me some damn visitors!”
You’re a loser if this is what you think. If you write, “Mary had a Little Lamb“, you automatically think Google owes you visitors to your website. WRONG. Google doesn’t own you a think. If this is what you think, give up blogging right now. You’re a loser.
4 ways to be the best blogger you can possibly be
First, don’t try to be the best blogger. You’re not going to do it, because it can’t be done. You will put too much pressure on yourself. Try to be the best blogger you can possibly be. This, you can do. And when you do this, try to do just a little better.
Grow some balls. What’s wrong with writing about something that’s going to piss people off?
NOTHING! Sometimes, people like to get pissed off. They’ll read your blog, and come back again and again to get pissed off some more. This brightens up their boring lives. If people get pissed off at what you write, just say, “To HELL with them!” This is your blog. Write about what you want to write about. If you’re afraid of getting sued, you’re a bigger P___Y than I thought. You’re expressing your opinion. No one can get sued for expressing an opinion. Just make this very clear. If someone threatens to sue you, laugh at them. Remember, someone saying they’re going to sue you, and actually following through are two different things. People like this are all talk.
Let me briefly tell you what happened to me about a year ago. Remember those late night guru’s who aired thirty minute infomercials, telling you how they made a whole lot or money? I posted an article about three of them who did prison terms. One hung himself in prison. The next morning, one of those guru’s called me and threatened me, saying, “Take my name off your website, or you will hear from my attorney. Also, take ___ _____’s name off your website. Talking about his hanging himself in his jail cell is in bad taste. He has a family.” I responded, “Not a chance. Your name stays on my website, and so does the name of your buddy.” I never heard from him again.
Third, write about something worth writing about. Don’t write about how you’re going to spend Christmas day. With all due respect, no one gives a damn. You don’t have to necessarily write articles that will piss people off. This is just one of many ways to attract attention.
Pick a topic that people are talking about. For example, People are pissed off at Donald Trump because of what he said about not allowing Muslims in the US. If you agree with him, write about it. This will get people’s attention. Use an attention getting headline like one that follows:
- Why Trump is right about banning Camel Jockeys
- Donald Trump hates those Muslims as much as I do
- Why Donald Trump has a good reason to hate Muslims
This will get people’s attention. You may get a lot of emails, but who cares. You don’t know these people anyway. Besides, if you monetize your website, they’ll still buy your product.
Next, write the way you feel. Spark some genuine emotions. Readers will see the passion you have for your topic, and they will be more likely to read your blog.
Finally, NEVER create blog posts for filler material. Have you ever said to yourself, “I don’t know what to write about today, so I think I’ll write about this topic, just to get a blog post on my website.“?
Bad idea. This will hurt your blog more than it will help it. It’s much better to publish three articles that people will love, than to publish thirty shitty articles that people won’t give the time of day.
In summary, if you’re pissed off when no one reads your blog, go back to the source, and the reason. The reason is, you’re a terrible blogger. But you’re about to change this – RIGHT?
