Where do you fall?
We believe that there are three kinds of bloggers in the world.
- There are the professional bloggers who make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year off their brands through content, advertising, influencer contracts and relationships with brands. There is thought to be around 2% bloggers in this category making more than $150,000 a year.
- The second category are what we call the semi-pros. They are about 17% of the blogging community who are able to sustain their lifestyle or support their family with their blogs.
- And lastly, there is a huge group – thought to be around 81% that we call the casual blogger – that will never make $100 from blogging… Without help.
Several years ago, we were casual bloggers ourselves. We had blogs with a few hundred followers, but had no guidance or direction and spent our time unproductively while trying to figure out why our blog wasn’t as popular as x,y or z blog that appeared to be doing the same things as we were. At a crossroads, we made the conscious decision to change the way we approached blogging. We asked ourselves a few fundamental questions about what we wanted to get out of our blogs and then created a plan to reach those goals. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
Taking your blog to the next level was not – and is not – easy.
The hardest part in the journey was when we went to look for reference material and ideas to help us get there. There were blog reference books that were too basic, and others that were too formulaic. There were a scattering of how-to articles that you had to know what exactly what you needed – and keywords to search for – to get to them, and even more articles just trying to get us to purchase a service that we really didn’t think we needed. So we did what we needed to in order to take our blogs to the next level when we had no other choice… We figured it out ourselves. But what if there was a way that we could share all the knowledge that’s up in our heads about blogging with others looking to grow their blogs as well?
What if we could share that information with other bloggers who are where we used to be, allowing them to learn from our mistakes, benefit from our experience and helping them grow their blogs with advice to take the next steps?
