Blogging is a way for people to get to know you over a period of time. There are about 80 million blogs on the internet, but most of these have been abandoned and long forgotten within a month or two of being created. When I started blogging, almost three years ago now, I could not understand why someone would take the time to set up a blog, only to let it go after such a short amount of time. As I continued blogging, I realized that it took more time and effort than I had originally anticipated. After just a couple of months I felt like I had said everything I had to say on the topics I was writing about. I began to post less and less frequently to my blog and soon I dreaded the thought of making even one more post. That’s when I decided to get professional help. No, I did not seek out the advice of a psychiatrist or therapist. Instead, I found a blogging mentor program where I could connect with other bloggers and receive guidance from the professional bloggers who were the founders of this mentor program.
Over the next few months I learned more about blogging than I could ever have imagined. I became ener
gized with new ideas and methods for getting readers to my blog and posting on a regular basis. I also connected with the other members of the mentor program and had an opportunity to ask them questions about various aspects of their blog and online business. I could see right away that many of the members were doing extremely well on the internet, and I had the chance to emulate some of their methods. The best part of this blogging mentor group and forum is the learning process that goes on. We have access to training calls and teleseminars, as well as having our questions answered promptly. This has become the first place I go when I am looking for a joint venture partner, outsourcing recommendations, and information on monetizing my specific niche.
There are so many forums and mentor programs available on the internet that it is difficult to sort out which programs are legitimate and will help you to build a profitable online business. I feel fortunate to have found this one because now I have about three hundred people who are as serious about blogging and incorporating new ideas into their online businesses as I am. I encourage you to make a connection like this and blog your way to online success.
