How to Become a Full Time Pro Blogger?

I am thrilled to jumpstart my blogging again with a guest post from Ryan Biddulph!!   🙂

 

Yes, you read that correctly. If you have been blogging for any length of time, then you have likely heard his name. World traveling blogger Ryan Biddulph describes himself as the guy who “went from Broke Blogging Bum as a newbie to Struggling Blogging Bozo to Established Pro Blogger….”

 

He has now been featured on such established and famous blogs as Entrepreneur, Forbes, Fox News, Life Hack, Darren Rowse’s Pro Blogger, Richard Branson’s Virgin Blog, among others… and he even participated in a cyber speaking engagement for NYU!

 

So if you have ever pondered HOW to become a full time pro blogger, check out Ryan’s story and advice!

 

Ryan shares:

 

A few minutes ago I recorded a Twitter live video.

 

One Periscope viewer said “blogging from paradise” sounded too good to be true.

 

8 years ago I would have agreed with him.

 

I was depressed, broke and skeptical about anything that would have led me in the direction of my dreams.

 

8 years later I am an Amazon best selling, full time pro blogging, island hopping entrepreneur.

 

I want to help you become a full time pro blogger by sharing these tips with you.

 

One note; be open!

 

Being open to a new way of doing and being is the first step in becoming a full time blogger if you have been doing the amateur hour bit for a minute.

 

1: Follow Your Passion

 

This is the most important tip.

 

I had some success as a full time pro blogger many moons ago but my success skyrocketed when I created Blogging From Paradise.

 

I launched BFP because I felt passionate about travel and blogging. Meaning I dove into the game primarily to follow my passion, not to chase profits.

 

Since sharing blogging tips and relating these tips to my travels felt playful to me the work was the reward. I was having fun. Everything else was icing on the cake or a cherry on top.

 

This allowed me to do the smart, effective, profitable things a blogger does to build a full time, professional career out of blogging.

 

What can you gab about all day long? Blog about it.

 

All rocking bloggers have an intense passion for their blog topic of choice.

 

My love of having fun with this blogging bit fueled my journey and your blogging passion will pull you through the ups and downs of blogging too.

 

2: Buy Your Domain and Hosting

 

Buy your domain and hosting.

 

Every full time pro blogger I know owns their website.

 

Owning your cyber real estate gives you branding power which fuels the monetization potential of your blogging campaign.

 

 

3: Solve a Specific Problem through each Post

 

Solve a specific problem for every post on your blog.

 

Lay the foundation for effective monetization.

 

If someone scrolls through my blog to find a medley of their blogging problems solved, gratis, they are likely to buy my products, eBooks, audio books, or they may hire me to help them in some regard.

 

Helps folks by solving their problems for free.

 

Draw in folks who seek out your paid help.

 

Work for free. Demonstrate your expertise on a large scale. Work, clients and customers will flow your way and you can become a pro blogger.

 

 

4: Guest Post

 

Guest post on top blogs from your niche to build your rep, to befriend blogging big dawgs, to leverage your presence and to become a full time blogger.

 

I recently dove into guest posting full throttle, placing guesties on sites like Positively Positive and Lifehack. I exposed myself and my Blogging From Paradise brand to the 3.5 million collective fans of each blogging community.

 

Build your friend network by promoting top bloggers and by commenting on their blogs. Write 1000 words daily for practice. As your skills improve and friend network expands many established pro bloggers will invite you to guest post on their blogs.

 

 

5: Comment on Top Blogs

 

Blog commenting has been good to me.

 

I gained multiple tweet endorsements from a NY Times Best Selling Author through blog commenting.

 

Blog commenting is a fun way to make friends, to add value to posts and to drive free traffic to your blog.

 

Write a 2-4 paragraph, in depth comment on a few top blogs from your niche.

 

Be persistent. Comment on top blogs at least 1-2 times weekly to build your friend network.

 

Effective blog commenting gives you the exposure you need to become a pro blogger.

 

 

6: Monetize Your Passions

 

Monetize your passions to build a full time income.

 

Since writing is the reward for me – I LOVE writing – the income I make from writing 126 eBooks, creating courses and offering freelance writing services is the icing on the cake. This is the energetic attitude to take if you want to position yourself to earn a full time income through your blog.

 

Add one income stream every 3-6 months. Learn the stream inside out. Earn some chedda through the channel. Then add another stream after that 3-6 month period.

 

 

Your Turn

 

Any other pro bloggers out there? What tips can you add to this list?

    Awesome advice here, I am not a pro blogger but it seems you have things figured out, I’m happy that you were able to find such success and in turn share it with the rest of us, thanks!!!

    Wow, this is exactly what I have been looking for! The average tips are helpful, yes, but all the same. The average “do this, do that, do this”. This is something else entirely! I never thought about guest posting or commenting on the big blogs. Seriously never crossed my mind. I dabble a bit in social media things, and I am a co author of a fair sized blog, plus my own. I also have a blog partnership with a newbie like me. So nothing major, and I love the idea of becoming a full time blogger. Thank you so much for sharing!

    So many great tips in here for bloggers who are just getting started! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Good suggestions, definitely recommend building relationships with other bloggers.
    However I have some reservation about the ‘work for free’ suggestion.

    • Ryan Biddulph - June 20, 2017 Reply

      No worries about working for free Jan; that is just the fear of losing money, manifest. Let go the fear of running out, you let go the attachment to money, work for free and then, add income streams. It’s a generosity/abundance thing the blogging big dawgs taught me 🙂

    Thanks for your great insights, Ryan. I’m all for blog commenting, although I tend not to do so on the really top blogs because there are so many others doing it. I didn’t think there was a chance to get noticed. I’ll give it a go:-)

    I particularly like the idea of only adding an income stream once every few months. It makes sense in that you will concentrate on them fully. As for writing 1000 words a day, I still haven’t got round to it but I must. I have some neglected niche blogs which would benefit, not to mention my own main one.

    Those are some amazing tips! I am new to blogging so it was definitely helpful! I like the idea of adding one source of revenue every 3-6 months. There are so many ways people say you can monetize so this is a good way to learn something new without getting overwhelmed.

  18. Tia Cox - June 21, 2017 Reply

    great list of tips. hopefully ill get there soon

  19. Saurabh Tiwari - June 22, 2017 Reply

    Hey Ryan, thanks for sharing your experience. It was truely an inspirational one. This is kind of case study you posted.. hats off to your efforts. Now I have to start following your strategies 🙂

  20. Kathryn Maclean - June 22, 2017 Reply

    Hi Karen, and Ryan, so great to see you here.
    I took notes, such an informative post.
    Follow your passion
    I would say that is THE most important tip

    Being passionate about your subject is important, and later the money will come. How many ebooks Ryan???
    Loved the “All rocking bloggers have an intense passion for the blog topic of choice”
    What stood out most to me?
    “Solve a specific problem for every post on your blog” I belong to the blogging community of PAC so I comment on their blogs and I am establishing my friend network. Adding monetary products every 3 mths or so sounds good. Great post!

  21. Brittany - June 23, 2017 Reply

    I need to get back into the habit of guest posting. I used to love it when I did!

  22. Sonal Talwar - June 23, 2017 Reply
