The Number One “Secret” to a More Profitable Blog

I’ve been working online as a writer for many years now and I know that having a profitable niche blog is just one of the many ways that a writer can earn money online, especially when it’s a popular blog with thousands of visitors. I know this because I’ve done it myself.

But it’s about more than just writing blog posts every day. You have to make sure that people want to visit your blog again and again. And the way to keep visitors coming, and to attract even more, is to have great content.

So what do I mean by great content?

We’ve all heard of the expression, “Content is King” because it’s the most important rule online. If people aren’t interested in the content on your blog, they won’t come back or sign up to know more.
And attracting visitors is the number one secret to having a profitable blog. 
And to make it even more profitable a blog needs killer content which means content that leaves the readers wanting more.

But how do you do this?

It all starts with 3 simple steps:

  1. Choose a high-profit niche
  2. Get your blog up and running
  3. Fill it with compelling content

You see, it’s no good choosing a niche that doesn’t interest many people or that doesn’t have enough money-making opportunities. It’s also important to get your blog up and running quickly because time wasted on too much planning and thinking, is time wasted.

And then you need to spend time filling it with killer content that gets people coming back again and again.

And even if you find that you’re not making as much money as other bloggers, or you're only earning $100/month, you only need a few sites like this to be earning a significant income.

This is topic is too big to tell you everything here. But if you want to know more about what killer content is and how to use it, click the link below and watch the video to discover what you need to do next.

Using Wabi-Sabi To Write and Earn Money

 Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese expression meaning to appreciate imperfections and the character that ageing can bring to something,  such as a crack in a plate, a chipped cup, or wrinkles on skin.

In Western society there is an appetite for the perfect and the eternal. Yet it is better to have an appreciation of simple things, not elaborate things.

Wabi-Sabi is the beauty of the imperfect, the impermanent, the rustic, and the melancholy. It’s a respect for what is fragile, slightly broken, past, and modest.

And you can use Wabi-Sabi in your writing too, so that you don’t have to struggle to make your writing perfect, elaborate or eternal.

Just write what you can with the talent and the knowledge that you have up until now.

You can learn as you go along, as long as you just keep writing.

And the more you write, the more you can earn. That’s the first thing I learned about being a writer and I’ve never forgotten it. 

And if you have trouble coming up with ideas of what to write about, try my Goodbye Writer’s Block to go from no-idea to idea-overload. Plus you’ll find the inspiration and motivation to write more.

It’s so easy to do, so quick to implement, and you’ll never be short of an idea again.

Does Outlining Kill Creativity?

There’s always been an ongoing debate amongst writers about whether or not outlines help or hinder creativity.

Some writers are known as “pantsers” because they never outline and so write by the seat of their pants. They don’t even know what the ending of their book is going to be until they write it.

Others only know the characters they want to write about and will outline their whole life history and then write a story around their personalities.

Still others only have a brief idea about the beginning, middle and end of their story and just wing it as they write.

There are also some who write out a one (or several) page synopsis and go from there while others have a detailed chapter-by-chapter outline to work from.

Personally, I need to know what I’m doing and if I don’t know the ending then I don’t know how to get there, so I do like to follow an outline because I find it easier to write that way, but I always reserve the right to make as many changes to it that I need to as my story progresses.

So does outlining kill creativity?

IMHO I think that it only kills creativity if you stick to it too rigidly.

But everyone is different so we all have to try it and see what works best for us.

A Writing Lesson From a Priest In Poverty

One of the TV shows I love to watch is Law and Order SVU. I have 21 seasons on discs and I watch them all the time (as well as other shows too).

And the other day I was watching an episode in which the detectives suspected a young Catholic Priest of committing a crime, a murder that happened in his church. He hadn’t done it, but couldn’t tell them who had without breaking the secrecy of the confessional.

But the storyline wasn’t what interested me, and instead, I was fascinated with how the priest lived and worked.

He lived in a tiny apartment and owned almost no furniture or other personal items, not even a TV, and even what little he did own was old and looked years old.

The detectives were stunned that anyone could live in such poverty and own so few possessions but the priest explained that he took his vow of poverty seriously. Clearly, he also took all his other vows seriously too because whenever the detectives showed up the priest was busy writing sermons, scrubbing the church floor, cleaning the pews, or visiting parishioners. He seemed to do nothing but work and said that he loved it so much that he didn’t need anything else.

And it got me thinking about writers and how all the successful ones are hard workers who love what they do and are always writing or plotting their next book or setting up another money-making website.

This is why I recently sold my house and moved to a small apartment at the coast so that I could spend less time on things that don’t matter (lawn mowing, house maintenance, etc) and more time on writing and other things I enjoy (and I love the fresh sea air too).

How about you?
