What it Takes To Become an ‘Outstanding’ Blogger

Sharing is caring!

They see you making money online, travelling the world and speaking at big conferences.

They appreciate you, appreciate your blog and finally ask for “that secret make money online formula.

For them, make money online is just about starting a blog, getting traffic, using AdSense on the blog and finally making money with it.

I get a lot of phone calls, WhatsApp messages (I don't use WhatsApp too much), Facebook messages, and a lot of emails.

They all looking for that secret make money online formula.

They feel that it's a system which can make them rich overnight.

They feel that it's a system which can help them to travel the world and enjoy the life.

and the worst, they feel that blogging can help them make financially independent without putting required efforts.

Formula.. Formula.. Formula..

They all are looking for that magical formula to change their life.

Let's say, I am making $20,000 a month with niche websites. I am enjoying my life, travelling the world and buying all expensive gadgets.

Let's say I have found that hidden formula to make money online.

So here is my question..

Why am I not teaching that formula to my sister, brother, mom and dad?

I know that my formula is making $20,000 a month now. Why am I not teaching the same formula to my family members so that I can hit $100,000 a month very easily.

Think about it.

Good if you got the answer yourself.. If not, let me give you the reason.

Because there is no formula.

It's all about your learning, dedication, commitment, willpower to grow, a power to motivate yourself, big vision and a desire to live life better than others.

I see people saying, “I want to make my blog as one of the best blogs in the world. I want to add the stuff on my blog which no one have ever written on their blogs.”

When I ask, “What efforts are you putting to do this practically?”

In most of the cases I see dumb faces only.

They don't have any plan.

After getting this questions again and again, finally I decided to write this article. So that next time, when anyone asks for the formula, I can send him this article.

Let's see what it takes to become an outstanding blogger.

#1. Your Willingness to Learn

I have a friend of mine, who just started blogging.

He is putting a lot of efforts to learn the things from the internet. He is spending sleepless nights to watch the videos on YouTube, he is spending a lot of time to read other blogs, and finally seeing some success in blogging.

He has the willingness to learn and explore.

When I started blogging in 2011, I didn't have good internet connection in my city. So I blogged 18 months with 2G mobile internet. I couldn't afford the broadband connection.

But I explored the things with 100% enthusiasm.

You must be ready to learn the basics before exploring the advance things.

Being a blogger, your first focus must be on improving your writing skills.

When I started blogging in 2011, I used to write SHIT.

I didn't know how to write perfect sentences, I used to make hell lots of spelling mistakes, I didn't know what copywriting was, and how to write compelling titles for blog posts.

So I started with basic.

I remember the days when I used to stumble “writing section” on StumbleUpon to understand how best writers in the world were delivering the content and what type of headlines they were using to attract the readers.

#2. Consider Blogging as a Business

It's no more a hobby if you are thinking about money.

It's pure business.

Blogging is a profession which needs time, dedication and commitment.

Have you ever seen any good shop in the market with inferior stuff, bad interior of the shop and a misbehaving salesman?

No.. I haven't seen any.

Consider your blogging a business and invest the money where it is required.

Buy a professional logo, a good looking theme, required plugins and all those things which will strengthen your business.

Take an example of Jitendra Vaswani who is doing killer branding with his blog.

jitu

He has placed himself in the blogging industry in such a way that we see him as a brand.

Another example is Ankit Singla.

btt

His blog is clean, logo is professional, elements on the blog are placed very carefully and the content on his blog is top-notch.

You cannot become an outstanding blogger if your mind is always running to save few bucks. Invest the money where it is required and see the big picture.

#3. Invest Money on Yourself

Which was the last seminar you attended to boost your confidence?

Which was the last book you read to improve your content marketing skills?

Nothing?

Yes, I can see your dumb face.

You are not investing money to educate yourself, because money is always running in your mind, and you don't want to distract your mind by wasting your precious time by reading books or attending seminars.

You think that why to waste the money by attending seminars when I can watch many of them on YouTube?

Why waste money on buying books when I can download PDF of any book just by searching on Google.

My friend.. that's the area where you are lacking.

You think that this is a waste of money.

What will I get by buying the book when I can get it free, why to invest my hard-earned money on a seminar when I can watch at FREE of cost.

So here is the human psychology.

We always value the things when we spend money from our pocket.

We always appreciate our Samsung Galaxy S5 over iPhone 6S, because we have invested our money to buy this.

Got it?

When we spend money on something, we spend more time to get most out of it and we become serious to utilize every single penny.

In last 5 years, I have read more than 100 books, join 4-5 online courses to increase my knowledge, attended 6 international seminars, attended 6-7 seminars in India and I keep on investing money on myself every single month.

Here are few of them.

Because this is the knowledge which no one can steal from you.

It's yours.

#4. Stop Blaming Others

I have seen many cases when newbies say, “I pinged XYZ blogger, and he didn't reply.”

He is such an arrogant blogger. He is not respecting newbies and not helping them.

..and a lot of other blames to prove that all the successful bloggers are mean and cheap.

My friend, they all started like you. They all were newbies one day. They all started from scratch.

Rather than blaming other bloggers and crying by saying that no one is helping me, make Google your best friend.

Learn how to use it effectively.

Learn how to ask questions from Google.

There are tons of articles on the internet about every single topic. You just ask the right questions, and you will get your answers.

I did the same.

I never annoyed any blogger by pinging him again and again, and asking silly questions.

I never asked for the secret tips to help me make money online.

I never begged to help me.

Stop this cheap mentality and move ahead by reading the appropriate blogs.

I am saying it again – there is no secret formula.

This is a field where many things work in parallel to produce big results.

#5. Make Your Identity

Branding speaks.

Once you are a brand, people want to be like you. They want to speak like you, walk like you, start the day like you and taste the success like you.

We all have 24 hours in a day.

How well you utilize them, depends on you.

How you craft your day. How to prioritize everything and how you manage the things, all depends on you.

To make your identity, you have to work extra hard.

You have to show your face in the different meeting, join podcasts, get interviewed on good blogs and do video blogging for your readers.

You have to put efforts more than a normal human being.

#6. Sleepless Nights

When was the last time you got so much involved in something that you ended up spending whole night to learn it?

hmmmmmmm..

Try to recall.

If you can recall that night, you understand that how crazy you were to learn that thing.

How crazy and passionate you were to understand the core of that particular thing.

The success you see today is not a result of 2-3 weeks or months. It's the outcome of many sleepless nights for many years.

I remember the days when we had only one room. In winters, my whole family used to sleep in that one room and I used to work late night to find that magic wand.

I was trying hell lots of things.

But no results.

Empty pockets and family looking at my face having some hope to see my bright future.

I was not paying attention to my health, I was not taking proper sleep, I was not hanging out with my friends.

Just working, working and working.

So be ready to spend sleepless nights if you really want to become an outstanding blogger.

Why just night only?

Because at night, there is calmness everywhere, no one to call you, and no one to distract you. Just your computer and YOU.

If you are ready to sacrifice your nights, welcome to the world of real blogging.

#7. Multi-Tasking

Being a blogger, we not only take care of our content, but we master many things in parallel too.

Take my example.

I create my images using Photoshop myself, I write my article, I do the copywriting of my articles, I create backlinks for my blog posts, coordinate with my writers, work on the design on my blog, decide the color of my popups, decide the sidebar elements on my blog, and too many other things.

If you think that just by writing articles, you can become a good blogger, you are in a big confusion.

Here we have to master so many things to become a blogger.

Note: I am not writing this to make you afraid of this industry. I am just telling the truth here.

If you are willing to write blog posts, make the layout of your blog perfect, do the link building for your blog posts, do the outreach to spread your content and willingness to learn new things every single day, you can choose this profession.

Otherwise, this is not for you.

Final Words.

If you are into blogging just with the intention to make money without learning the basics, go home.

This profession is not for you.

This is just like another profession.

We work from home, so people find it very easy to do. But in reality, it's much tougher than a normal job.

Here is a powerful quote.

Entrepreneur

An outstanding blogger gives his blood and sweat.

Are you ready?

  1. Thank you so much sir for sharing this article… Really true there is no magical formula for blogging except hard work, dedication, and learn a lot

  2. Hii Bro Kulwant,

    Thank you so much for presenting the accurate truth of a successful blogger. I 100% agree with all the valuable points you explained in this guide and hope lots of people will understand the difference of “Why are some people very successful and others are not?”.

    You always inspire me and many others as well through your hard-work, passion and great vision of the blogging.

    Thanks again. Keep inspiring !!

  3. Hi Kulwant,
    You shared some of the vital lessons to learn in blogging.
    Some think that blogging is easy, but in reality, it is the other way round!
    You brought out some vital points in this regard in this amazing post.
    I could very well relate to some of the areas mentioned in, especially about your usage of your mobile internet in the initial stage. Yes, almost the similar situation I faced few years back, I used to visit internet cafe’s and used the net for my blogging purpose. Just for
    one or two hours shelling out almost 50+bugs since there was no net connection at home. Now the things are changed in a tremendous way, with sheer dedication and hard work. πŸ™‚

    In fact, Blogging is a continuous learning process, and one need to go on and on in this process to learn something new every day. Only a relentless hardworking guy can pick up the lessons in the process. A lazy guy can’t gain anything instead. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for telling these amazing truth very plainly in this post by giving advice to the newbies about their complaining nature etc. I really like the way you presented the hard facts here in this post. Thanks, Kulwant.

    I like the concluding sentence you put in: “If you are into blogging just with the intention to make money without learning the basics, go home. This profession is not for you.” Well said my dear friend well said!
    Thanks for sharing the examples of our friends on net both of them are known to me.
    Best Regards
    ~ Philip

  4. Hi Kulwant,

    I am so much fascinated by the article and read it twice. Your life is a great motivation for me. Actually, I can relate, when I started blogging a few years back I also used to work with 2g internet in a mobile that was not working properly as it was broken. I borrowed it from my elder brother’s friend. To make the mobile work I have to wrap a thread tightly around it. But the hard work and constant efforts pays. Now I am doing really good with blogging and living my life happily.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome article. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  5. Really, Best motivational post I have ever read..thanks for giving such a practical article which shows the real truth of blogging world.. Thanks Kulwant sir…

  6. Kulwant first of fall congrats for writing truth about pro blogging. Never give guys one day we will get success

  7. Hi! Mr Kulwant Negi,

    I am totally agree with your points, Let me also write my views on such topics, hope you don’t mind πŸ™‚

    1.) A Person should willing to learn – as Learning is an Experience but If you are not implementing properly then it will become Just Information. No Use

    2.) Consider blogging as a business – Professional Logo, Attractive Theme and Branding is Necessary but As you said “It’s no more a hobby if you are thinking about money.” So, Just choose the topic where our INTEREST is… and convert your hobby/interest to money making blog. Like Examples: Health -Deit, Cooking – Food, Gym – Body Building, Travelling – Holidays, Shopping etc. Once we selected our favourite topic, then automatically provide more time, dedication and commitment to our work and one day will become professional as blogger with less chance of failure.

    3.) Invest Money on Yourself – Very True. Apart from Attending Seminar and Ebooks. It’s Good to invest on Domain & Hosting, Webcam with Mic to make videos as YOUTUBE is a Second Largest Search Engine and Premium Plugins to make your heavy load work easier.

    4.) Stop Blaming Others – Very True. It’s takes Our Precous Time and Energy which keep us AWAY from Improving ourself. Once You Stop Blaming Others, You begin to discover yourself truely.

    5.) Make Your Identiy – “Branding Speaks” – This is what matter when what People say about your brand behind the back. Your Personal BRAND is what differentitates you from Others and Dont be distracted by criticism because once you start reaching your Goals, Peoples will try to PUSH you down.

    6.) Sleepless Nights – There are two kinds of People i.e Morning People and Night Owl and My friends used to call me Night Owl because my capacity to work in night increased by 400%. It’s True if you don’t loose your Focus.

    7.) Multi Tasking – Just Writing Content is not a KEY, Creating Backlinks, Guest Posts, Social Bookmarking, Image Optimization, Keywords Researching etc. Lot of things to do to became a succesfull blogger.

    Final Words,

    If you are into blogging and have intention to make money then you must need Lot of dedication and towards your work. Your Capacity to learn Something will increase you SKILLs.

    “The Most Important thing is NOT to Stop Questioning” (by Alvert Einstein) from Mr. Kulwant Negi. πŸ˜› because he is one of Pro Blogger who is successful and ready to help only those guys who had achieved something in their Life and willing to do better for his blog.

    I’m the daily reader of your blog and highly inspired by your blogging journey and always learn new tips. Here I post my first comment on your blog.

  29. Woah,
    Nice piece of well crafted content <3 The points you covered are really awesome πŸ™‚ everything you wrote was agreeable really cool thanks for writing such a cool post
    Thank you πŸ™‚

  30. Hi Kulwant Sir,
    This is one more exceptional article. It’s informative and in-depth; however, it’s inspiring and motivational. And I read it from start to finish. Also, I’m going to start implementing all the advice immediately.

  31. Thank you sir for sharing this article inspired by your blogging.. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed . thanks for sharing.

  32. Hi Kulwant,

    I like the “cheap mentality” quote, from mindset to how you act to how grateful you are to how generous you are with your blog.

    The mindset roots itself in being terrified of losing everything, including your money.

    I had this mindset developed highly for most of my life because of some wacky childhood stuff I experienced. It was only thru facing, embracing and releasing these energies that I largely became free of them, and in so doing, I followed your advice above and created a neat life for me, and for the readers of our community who became island hopping bloggers too.

    Your growth has been amazing Kulwant. We started in the same year too, which is neat. You’ve been on a learning path for a long time and I just really opened to learning recently so I’m excited to see what the future holds for each of us.

    Thanks for the inspirational kick in the pants.

    Ryan

    • Ryan, I am very happy to see you here.

      I think mindset is the only thing which separates winners and losers. People with the negative mindset always suffer in their life as they keep complaining the surroundings, where people with the positive mindset find the path in worst cases to.

      Your story is also very inspiring.

      I am amazed to hear that we started our journey together. We have came too far, and the journey is still very long.

      Thank you very much for appreciating my efforts and growth. πŸ™‚

  33. Now this is one of the most “Honest Article” I have read ever! This is the reality of blogging and everyone should be prepared to face this, if you can’t handle the problems in your blogging journey you don’t deserve to be a blogger.

    I am just a noob and being an Indian I completely agree with your each point mentioned here.
    This article is motivational thanks for sharing this.

    • This is a business where you to face many problems as there is no exact guide to become a successful blogger. But people who took the challenge, are one of the top bloggers in the industry now.

      I hope this article will give you a path to proceed in the right direction now.

  34. Bahut he achi salah di hai apne newbies ko kulwant sir. mein ap ko kafi time se follow kar raha hun, and apke post regular read karta hoon.

    ye apne bilkul thik kaha ki din raat lagane padte hain success hone ke liye. aisa he kuch hamare sath bhi hota hai. raat ko neend to bahut ati hai, but fir sochte hain, jo kar rahe hain apne liye hi to kar rahe hain.and aisa karne se hamara khud ka knowledge increase hota hai…..

    har work mein dedication hona bahut jaruri hai. agar har koi dedication ke sath kam karta hain to success hona koi badi baat nahi hoti…

    kabhi ye nahi sochna chahiye ki kaam karne se sharam ayegi..

    mein abhi yaha par hinglish mein comment likh raha hun.

    aur sabhi english bolne wale expert hain yaha par πŸ™‚

    to kya mujhe sharam karni chahiye? ki main yaha par alag he bhasha main comment likh raha hun????

    Bilkul Bhi Nahi….

    kyunki Hinglish and hindi mein blog likhna mera work hai..

    I am also an IT guy. mujhe bhi english ati hai.

    but jo mein karta hun wo hindi mein hai. esliye hamesha aise he comment bhi karta hun. bus ye pata hai.. jo kisi ko achi tarah samajh ajaye.. waise he likho πŸ™‚

    Mein hinglish mein blogging karta hun aur mujhe pehle lagta tha ki shayad pata nahi ye chalega bhi ya nahi, kafi confusion rehta tha, but bina kuch soche, bus implement kar diya… jab google adsense ki approval bhi mil gaye to kafi khushi hue ki jo maine socha tha nagetive ke ye chalega bhi ya nahi, wo sochna he galat tha..

    din raat mehnat ka fal god ne bhe mujhe diya hai.. aur dikhta bhi hai.. jab daily organic traffic ata hai blog par tau…

    apne bahut he achi jankari de kar newbies ka hosla aur bhi badhaya hai kulwant sir.

    mera manna hai ki, ap koi bhi kam karo.. chahe wo kuch bhi ho…. bus usme master ban jao, aur uske bare mein hamesha kuch new learn karte raho,, fir saflata apke pas khud ayegi, bhagte hue..

    thanks sir..

    • Virender, this is the first ever Hindi comment on my blog.. I loved the way you expressed your thoughts and put your points.

      Glad to hear that you got the outcome of your hard work. I became your fan after reading such a crazy and close to heart comment. I would love to see you on my blog again. πŸ™‚

    Thanks

    • Thanks a lot for appreciating my articles. Readers like you give me power to write such articles. πŸ™‚

  38. Everything takes processes and time being, blogging is no exception, however during our process the question is do we use the right methods? If not all the process will likely be futile.

  39. Thanks for sharing this valuable information with us. You are absolutely right their is no formula this is only your hard work which is responsible for your success.

  40. Congrats Kulwant Sir for this article is a real guide for newbies. Your article shows your dedication which every newbies should use it to make a check list for starting the blogging career. I completely agree with points.

    I have a point which is missing in your article. Please share all the legal requirements for generating income out of blogging. Should we register our blog as per local laws in small and medium enterprise and link it with a current account?

    Or

    There is not mandatory to register as per local laws in small and medium enterprise and link it with a saving bank account.

    If you can reply in details in this post, then I believe, it will be a great learning for newbies.

    Thanks a lot Kulwant sir

    • Thanks for stopping by Kuldeep.

      There is no need to do any legal formalities. Just buy a good domain name, a trusted hosting, and you can start your blogging career very easily.

  41. Hi Kulwant,

    Really, This post is awesome for newbies. I am a newbie in blogging. And my thinking before reading this post that Blogging is a money making formula. I have read 2 – 3 times this post & now my concept is clear for blogging.

    Finally, I have understood the definition of an outstanding blogger.

    Thanks a lot!

  42. its beyond words.
    everytime you said “I see Dumb Faces” & “Yes, I can See Your Dumb Face” I figured myself (altough i didnt want to but….). Felt like you know me and you are giving my example, apart from one difference that i never begged for help or advice or shortcuts with anyone. I just made Google my guru my started a website. (i am ashamed to even mention that piece of amateur skill here). It s been more than 6 months and the webpage still shows “under constuction” πŸ™‚
    I want to start but yes there are million excuses to “NOT TO DO” a work and i am surrounded by just 10s of them.
    After reading this PARTICULAR article i hope i wish i pray that i will certainly make a fresh start and succeed.

    A million thanks for the push.

    Keep Pushing Us πŸ™‚

  43. Hey Kulwant,

    Great informative articles, thought provocating, sometime, while reading, i felt that you are talking to me or addressing my questions.

    However there is a grammatical mistake in your blog, thought to bring it your notice.

    “If you are ready to sacrifice your nights, welcome in the world of real blogging.”

    correct way should be

    If you are ready to sacrifice your nights, welcome to the world of real blogging.

    thanks, keep writting and motivating us.

    • Happy to hear that you could feel me while reading the blog post.

      Thanks a lot for pointing the mistake. Corrected. πŸ™‚

  44. Hello Kulwant Sir,

    Yes, It’s Good to know about the outstanding bloggers, How to do killer branding. I take Blog as my Business, It started paying me after some duration. Even I got $6 for a backlink my First PayPal Payment without writing and any Special Post about the Sponsored Company. I will Try to follow all the point about the blogger as you mentioned above and Grow my Brand too.

    Article Inspired Me a Lot .

  45. Hi Kulwant,
    I appreciate what you have explained in simple words about blogging. Lots of people think it is so easy making money at home via internet which actually not so… I was working on micro niche blogs earlier now shifted to regular blog of mine. I was learning stuff for a fresh beginning of my blog and from this article of your’s I recalled what I have learnt few years back. Thanks for this amazing post…

  46. Hello Kulwant bro,
    What a nice post! And the number of comments this has gotten shows that the mission (of motivating and setting the readers in the right path) has been accomplished.

    The ability and willingness to learn is the key to success in any business. If one has the desire he can know anything. You came from a field where you had no relation with blogging, I did not know what a website is before I created one for myself and the list goes on.

    Being able to take blogging as your business and investing for long-term returns is also necessary. I liked and am inspired by how you set up your theme shop which is a great example of transitioning from just being a blogger to a total entrepreneur.

    Thanks for this post. It is a just read for everyone, bloggers who are just starting out (so that they know the right path) to established bloggers (so that they don’t deviate from the right path).

    Have a good day ahead.

    • Swadhin, you inspired me to write this, and I got the idea to write this blog post instantly.

      Yeah, this post has done well on social media and helping newbies to realize the actual meaning of blogging. πŸ™‚

      Having an Entrepreneur mindset, I have started another businesses also, which will help me to survive in the industry for a long run.

      Share this post with your buddies and let them realize the actual meaning of blogging. πŸ˜‰

  47. Hey Kulwant,

    I do understand that there is nothing as a predefined formula to success. It took me almost a year to realise that.
    There is nothing such as a shortcut in blogging.
    But Newbies are unaware about the fact what blogging really is and it takes blood and sweat to make a name in the blogging world.

    Thanks for the article.

  48. Hey, Kulwant it’s really motivational.
    I have read your eBook where you have mentioned about you and how you have become a successful blogger.

    I am also a part time blogger as I work as a software engineer in a software industry. I am also unable to give more time on my all the blogs but I always follow you especially on facebook and keep myself motivated and increase my dedication towards my blog.

    Thanks brother I really respect you.

    One question from you:
    I work overnight daily as daytime I go to my office, I am easily making $1500+ every month from my blog which is 2 times of my Salary. What should I do ? Shall I quit my job and give 100% time to become a successful blogger ?

    • Thanks a lot for going through my book and coming back on my blog.

      If you are making more money than your job, I would recommend to quit the job. πŸ™‚

  49. Great post Kulwant,

    There are so many things that contribute to success. Of course they are all important but they are only useful if you are persistent as much as you are consistent.

    Early on in a bloggers career it can feel like you are pushing the proverbial ‘sh*t’ up hill with no results. But through patience and persistence and following sound advice such as yours success will come.

    Thank you for sharing

    • Well said, Mr. Gary.

      Persistence can take you from one level to next if you have a desire to do something in your life. πŸ™‚

  50. First time here on your blog and click on first link that was about blogging. I was planning to start money from blog and try to target low competition and high volume keywords. Although I have one blog that generating much traffic but I am not able to earn money. After reading this post I will improve some of my strategy and working. Thank you so much sir for writing such wonderful and insightful article.
    Your style of writing is much similar to mr. Neil Patel I am regular reader of Neil Blog but Now your blog will be in second position in my reading list.

    • Glad to hear that you are already running a blog which is getting good traffic. Thanks for giving me such an honor about my writing skills. I would love to see you again on my blog. πŸ™‚

  51. Hi Kulwant,

    You have made an very informative article which is very much useful to the newbies who are expecting money from the first month of blogging. You have point out the points where the new bloggers miss out.

    Really this article going to be an eye opener for the people who aspires to become an blogger.

    My hearty wishes for this valuable content.

  52. Hey Kulwant,
    Big fan of yours after I have seen your hangout on link building where you talk about broken link building, Donation backlink technique and expire domain technique.
    Currently I am working as Affiliate Marketer and want your suggestion on it.
    My question is (As far as sales or affiliate earring concern what do you think Review sites are better or niche blog)?
    Waiting for your reply

    Regards
    John

  53. Hey Kulwant,
    Really nice article. I’m working on my blog from more than one & half year. And yeah, It was really tough for me in the starting but after some time and after doing lots of hard work. Now, I can say that it’s really amazing thing for me.

    Yes, It’s true that Blogging is not a one night rich formula. So, anybody who want to get a rich in short period of time from blogging then please leave it. It’s not for you.

  54. Hi Kulwant ji….!

    I always ready ur blog but first time I write comment bcoz u r writing heart touching line – “If you are ready to sacrifice your nights, welcome in the world of real blogging.”

    Bcoz I always sacrifice my night! I also think Din ka kya barosa but Rat to hamari hi hai….!

  55. Loved your story, Kulwant .

    I’d love to know which writers you were most inspired by, or drawn to.

    I think the best advice I’ve received lately has been, β€œKill your censor and write 1,000 words more, and when you’re done, remove every extra word that you don’t need to tell your story” because one of my biggest flaws was being overly wordy. I thought of the authors that I loved the most, and had β€œfake it until you make it” in the back of my mind.

    • Thanks Travis.

      The writer I loved the most is Jon Morrow (SmartBlogger).

      I loved your quote. I have used the strategy “fake it until you make it” personally and I got good results.

      Glad to see you on my blog.
