    8 Best Ways To Gain Followers For Your Blog

    Traffic! It’s one of those words that I do not like much, for it almost begs us to forget that those stats represent actual people. But… but… I know that one of the main reasons we blog is to be read by other people, so this makes it important to gain more followers, to receive feedback, to feel as if what you blog about truly matters to other people.

    We Must Prepare for the Next Pandemic

    When the next pandemic strikes, we’ll be fighting it on two fronts. The first is the one you immediately think about: understanding the disease, researching a cure and inoculating the population. The second is new, and one you might not have thought much about: fighting the deluge of rumors, misinformation and flat-out lies that will appear on the internet.

    Want More Traffic? Here’s How.

    Sometimes I ask myself if there’s more to this blogging thing than being addicted to traffic. You start a blog, or a YouTube channel, create a podcast, whatever your passion may be. You put some content out there, and a few people stop by and compliment your work. That’s when the madness starts. You start to go online for traffic strategies, going to webinars instead of movies, and even studying blogs like the Art of Blogging. Hehehe. But you know what? I feel you. And because I went th...

    The Concise Guide to Building Relationships with Other Bloggers

    Contrary to what you might be inclined to believe, the web is not a safe haven for socially awkward individuals. The fact that many bloggers struggle to get even one person to read their content means that they do not invest the time and energy into building relationships with other bloggers. Because they don’t know how or because they think it does not matter. Let me say this: talent alone is not enough. Lots of talented people died poor, sick, and alone precisely because they never though...

    Feel Like Giving Up? Read This.

    I launched my first blog in January 2011. I had released my first self-published novel on Amazon. I was very excited, and I was sure that I’d soon conquer the world… I quit after three posts, no views, no comments, no nothing. Five days into my career as a blogger, I grew bitter and remorseful, felt invisible, decided it was all for nothing, and deleted my blog.

    Protecting Your Creative Mindspace

    Mindspace. You won’t find this term in Merriam-Webster, but I’m willing to bet most writers know what I’m talking about. The mind is a place where electricity ignites and runs over brain cells creating memory, thoughts, emotions. A mind is its own entity, but when you add “space” to the term, it creates a whole new dimension. Space equals capacity, area, breadth, but it also means BREATHING ROOM. What term could be more perfect for a creative–for a writer–than mindspace?

    The Five Biggest Doubts of The Modern Blogger
