Episode 65: How Blogging Creates Endless Opportunity for Personal Growth and Profit

Park Wellington in New Zealand

Welcome back to Episode #65 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s topic is all about blogging, which is one of the most essential and well-known forms of interactions and communication in today’s world. Learn the hidden benefits of blogging with me today. Whether you have a blog or don’t even know what a blog is, you are covered in this podcast, darling, so grab a cuppa tea, have a seat or talk a walk and tune in to the podcast.

One of the things I love about blogging is the aspect of mobility. Your blog goes where you go. I love traveling to the furthest corners of the earth – and in fact recently, we have discovered yet another resource to get the cheapest flights! – but I still love to stay in touch with my work. Blogging not only goes where you go – that may not be as sexy in a mobile world where you can take your office work home or on holiday with you – but you can integrate your life, your passions, your travel stories and your dreams into your blog and draw lessons from that experience, just as you are having it, and share it with your readers.

Show Notes for How Blogging Creates Endless Opportunity for Personal Growth and Profit

1. Why I am a huge advocate for Become a Blogger and what Leslie is offering with his class.

2. What is a blog anyway? I define a blog for those of you who may not be familiar with the term.

3. Some background on my own blogging experience and setting the tone for this podcast.

4. Personal growth benefits of blogging, and why it pulls you out of self-denial like nothing else.

5. How your writing evolves and how blogging can prepare you to write books – and publish them yourself!- and programs and courses.

6. Setting high standards of the type of work and content you put out with your blog and how that relates to personal growth.

7. Who really finds you when you are searchable on Google and how can that add to profit and voice of authority both directly and indirectly. Plus I share the stories of how Google and Forbes found me.

8. All different channels of profit that you can create with your blog, and why you need to think about the business first then the blog.

Over to You: What do you think about blogging?

Blogging can attract polar views, no doubt. I have heard it rendered completely useless and waste of time by some self-respected resources, and considered the door that can open you to a world of possibilities by other experts, and I am permanently stationing myself in the second camp. How about you? Do you have a blog, want to have one or better yet, have any thoughts about the art and science of blogging? Share away!.

    “Personal growth benefits of blogging, and why it pulls you out of self-denial like nothing else.”

    I began my blog as a way of sharing and connecting with others. The added benefit of personal growth came as a complete suprise. It has been very fulfilling. I encourage everyone to blog. There is surely something you are passionate about.

      Dan, you can relate huh? :) I love the surprises my blog has afforded me. It’s been really nice. And I’m right behind to encourage everyone that has something to say to say it in a blog!!!

    Hi, Farnoosh! This is an interesting article. I’ve been blogging over two years now and it has become a source of great satisfaction. Two monthly discussion groups have grown out of my blog, as well as speaking engagements (like the one tomorrow for clients of UBS), and even a book which was just published (with the same title as my blog). The book allows me to support an organization I love, because I donate all proceeds to Edwards Center, which serves adults with developmental disabilities including my two sons.

    I’ve met new friends, online and in person, and made connections all over the world. Compared to you, I am a little fish in a little pond, but my level of activities and connections associated with blogging suits me just fine. I’m quite happy with my little corner of blog world. Most of all, it’s fun. And fun is good.

      Hi dear Galen, “compared to you” – you know, I don’t really see myself that “big” at all ;)! So I find it amusing that others do. I think we all do our part in a special and unique way and there’s no sizing up in my world, but I am so glad that you are getting so much out of your blogging experience, Galen. My youngest brother grew up with a tough disability and so my compassion goes to all the kids and adults who struggle with that, and so I am really amazed and touched by your contributions. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing, and you are doing great things, Galen, in a BIG way! Don’t diminish the amazing value…. ! :)

    hi Farnoosh, i came here via the daily muse.
    I have been a blogger for a long time, and it was a diary-for- mom type blog.
    stumbling upon this podcast has been a wonderful experience for me, and it has opened up a line of thinking that i was previously unaware of.. professional blogging.

    now i can be a stick in the mud about it, but i have had some recent positive changes in my life, and your podcast has been the turning point to a new direction.. so thank you for providing this talk for free.
    i have to say your voice is lovely, and the podcast has been a joy to listen to.
    Thank you for a wonderful new perspective .

      Dear Jaya, thanks for coming over, and I wish you had shared the link to your blog, glad to hear you’ve been blogging too. Yes, professional blogging is for real and anybody can pursue it – I am delighted that the podcast has been helpful to you…. thanks for telling me. I am happy to provide this talk for free, and if you ever want to share these thoughts on an iTunes review for the podcast, that would be my greatest reward and it would tell others about the podcast too. Thanks Jaya and happy blogging!

    I am a new blogger, only blogging for about five months, but am excited to announce that my experience blogging has turned out to be more than I’d imagined. I blog about my life as an adult living with Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism.

    What took me be surprise is the amount of people I have connected with since I began blogging, and the direction my life has turned. When I began I had been working on my first novel, but wanted to write more about my experiences growing up with undiagnosed autisms, so I began blogging my memoir. I am currently 3/4′s the way through my first draft, and I am publishing on a blog dedicated to the book as I go. It has been a fun, and often terrifying experience. :) The book is blogged at Aspiewriter.

    Your site was recommended to me by a fellow blogger and commenter on my blogged book site. I am thankful for his recommendation and am enjoying your work!

      Hi Aspie Writer, welcome I am so glad to have you here. Blogging is a great way to connect with people from all over the world. Communities of blogging can be highly supportive and I am glad you are writing a book. It’s exactly that: terrifying and fun. I’m writing an 8th one right now with a tight deadline.. Come again anytime and good luck with the writing.
