This is gonna be a rant, so if you don’t want to hear me bitch, do not read this post. The noob is stressed cause of the wedding. I don’t understand why it has to be so stressful. If i knew it was going to be like this, i think i would have done the whole thing at Las Vegas.
Being the groom, i have to be the middleman. I have to take it upon myself to please my side of the family, and my future wife’s side. I have to make sure that my mother’s pride is not hurt, and at the same time, help my bride out with the wedding preps. It’s a difficult balance. I don’t think i’m very good at it. I figured out why.
I suck at being the middleman cause im a blunt person. I don’t like to bullshit, so i say what’s on my mind. I don’t like to dance around the issue, so some of my statements and suggestions seem a bit too forward. I’ve been noticing that people do not like this style. People want to hear info or news that is sugar coated.
I think if you want to make your blog popular, you have to include a lot of fluff. If you are too honest with your blogging experiences, your readers might get turned off. They don’t want to hear about how most blogs are useless. They don’t want to hear the ugly truth. The truth about making money online is this. You won’t get rich off it. It’d probably be a better investment to buy a get rich quick scheme.
Blogging about blogging is played out. The inside scoop about making money online is this…there is no inside scoop. There isn’t a trick or system that will help you make money online. You won’t make money off of reverse funnel system or by telling people how much money you make.
If you enjoy writing, and if you enjoy making a few bucks, then you could start a make money blog. It won’t be easy tho. I could make around 30 dollars a day with this blog. I can do this cause i’ve invested a lot of time and energy into this blog for the past several months. I consider my blogging income to be pretty large when compared to other make money bloggers. There are bloggers that spend more then they make. This is stupid cause the blogging fad will die out. Don’t know when that will happen, but something new will come along that will make it more difficult to make money online by blogging.
You should get into this blogging game, if you enjoy writing. If you are creative and if you’re a natural story teller, you should be able to get a good blog going. But if money is your only motivation, you will most likely be disappointed. Expect to only make 5 dollars a day. If that won’t make you happy, you really don’t want to get into this game.
I’m ranting about honesty cause i had to go to church today. My parents are religious freaks. I grew up being scared of rapture and thinking that drugs and alcohol were the worst of sins. After i entered college, i started reading other books and thinking more for myself. I realized that institutionalized religion is not for me. At church, i saw a lot of hypocracy. I saw people with two faces.
This lack of honesty is seen everywhere. You go to a business meeting, and you have to present your project, company, or product to be better then it actually is. You have to fluff the product. You have to exclude the negative things associated with that product. If you sell vacum cleaners, and you know the vacum is made of cheap pastic and it breaks down after a year…you can’t be honest about this if you want to actually sell this product. You have to fluff it with terms like “space age polymers.”
My blog will never become a superblog. Even if i spend thousands of dollars in marketing and suck up to chow and ron jeremy, my blog will see a sharp rise but will not make much money. It’s cause of my writing style. I’m too honest for my own good.
I have a few other make money blogs. I set them up a few weeks after i launched bloggernoob. I did it cause i wanted income from multiple blogs. Bloggernoob is my baby. I try to be honest with myself in my posts. But on my other make money blogs, i am not as honest. I lie and recycle older johnchow and shoemoney posts. I make money with those blogs. Not as much as bloggernoob, but i can see that if i put more energy into those fake blogs, i could make more money from them. Those blogs have potential to become the next johncow. This is possible with those blogs cause im not so honest on those blogs. I kiss ass and i lie about my income. Those blogs are similar to johnchow dot com.
I also have a pet lover blog. That blog was gaining in popularity. It was getting bloggernoob type traffic. Like 500 daily hits. But i wrote a few raw posts last week. I wrote about topics that were a bit taboo. Those posts were honest. They were meant to create dialog with my readers. But they didn’t like it. They only wanted to see cute doggy pictures. They just wanted sugar canes and lollipops.
I guess it to do with writing appropriate posts. If you change the tone of your blog, you’ll see a drop in traffic. If your readers are used to a certain kind of posts, you better keep that going. Change is something that people don’t seem to like. Being too straight forward could hurt your blog. If you want to popularized your blog, try not be be so honest. People don’t want honesty. They want things to be like disneyland. They want the ugly to be hidden. They want positive energy in the form of lies, not negative truth.
