Blogging Problems and Solutions

I sent a mail to my list yesterday and asked them to ask me any question or share with me any problem they are having with blogging or make money online and I got some response from my subscribers.  Below is the message I sent.

I will tell you the truth right away, i do give people on my list opportunities that I might never give my blog readers, I treat them as the most special and valuable people who care about me.

After sending the above message to my list, one intelligent subscriber asked the following question.

Hello Bamidele,

I think answers to the questions in your mail
will be a good start.

1. how to get started
2. build a powerful blog
3. get traffic

It’s ok if you’d want to take it one after the
other so that you’d be able to explain it to

Thank you.

I gave the following answers and I would also love to share the answers with you below. You still have the opportunity to ask me any question once you join my list (you will also get a free ebook).

Hi First name,

If you are having problems with getting started, you will have to do
the following.

1. Locate your passion: What do you love doing and you have genuine
interest in (i.e. You so much love that you would love to start

2. Make plans on how to get started i.e. Do you have what it takes or
are you ready for it. It is also important to have a blogging plan,
more on this can be found here:

3. You MUST believe in yourself. I have discovered the problem
many people face is that they don’t believe in themselves. If you
don’t believe in yourself then you can’t go far but if you believe in
yourself you will even be anxious to get started (without even told).

How to Build a Powerful Blog

Building a powerful blog is VERY easy, it is about you and nothing else.

You should not capitalize on another persons point but be yourself,
you should also be knowledgeable about the subject you blog on. You
can never build a powerful blog if you don’t know what you are talking
You should also be able to write your blog posts with boldness and
authority and take every single user as important. You should interact
in your community and welcome everyone who is willing to work with
Your mindset is also very important so always dream big and not just
despise yourself.

How to get Traffic

If I would tell you the truth, you will never get anywhere or build a
powerful blog without traffic. I remember when I just started
blogging, I hardly get links but now, even my opinions get links
(because I have worked on getting traffic).
Every single traffic generation tips revolves on networking so you
should have the intention of giving more and using less.
Below are some great things to do.

1. Write for other established blogs in order to increase your
exposure and create more awareness about you.

2. Try to make valuable well-thought-out comments on other blogs.
3. Join Blogging Communities like and because this helps you increase your
awareness and also helps you meet with other bloggers.

4. try to effectively utilize social networking and bookmarking sites.

And one last point… “Build your list”

If you also want to have the opportunity to ask me any question or get some secret insider tips I will never post on this blog then join my list and you will also get my FREE ebook on how to build a better website

    Hi Onibalusi,

    This line resonated with me:

    “You should also be able to write your blog posts with boldness and
    authority and take every single user as important.”

    You’ve got it! Boldness draws readers. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. Fear is repelling, faith attracting.

    Appreciating every single user is one of the keys to blogging success. Answer every comment and thank the reader for sharing their most valuable commodity – time – with you. This is the essence of relationship building which is the cornerstone of successful blogging.

    Great tips! Thanks for sharing your insight.

      Hi Ryan,

      You are absolutely right, If you speak with more authority and confidence then your readers will take you for that but if you speak with subjection then your readers will also take you for mediocrity.

      Thanks a lot,

    I guess getting started is not an issue since most of us have a blog. But earning from it, that’s the big question. Bloggers must be careful in monetizing their blogs.
