    Thanks Jeff. Come back time and again. Also subscribed. Great info. I have a Blogger blog with my own domain name. Is it possible to be successful outside of WordPress?

      Hi Mike and thanks for the comment. In answer to your question about success with a blogger platform is that “yes” you can be successful, it is just that you take away your independence and flexibility if you don’t self host with your own template and domain. It is a bit like being a one legged man in a kick boxing competition. If you find that you really become successful, transferring from a blogger platform will require a lot of resources and time and you will also lose any Google search engine optimisation (SEO) that you would have built up for blogger.com instead of your own domain Cheers :)

    Another killer post Jeff. Have to agree with both Rene and Mike. Your posts are an inspiration and I find myself coming back for more on a constant basis.

    Hey Jeff.  Great Post as always.  You do a great job of appealing to the beginner and also offer a few tips for seasoned bloggers to always be mindful of!  This may seem like an obvious question but WordPress allows you to buy your .com or .org domain from them when you sign up.  Does buying it this way still limit SEO optimization rather than going to GoDaddy or HostMonster directly?  thx!

    Jeff, there is such great detail in this post. Perfect for an aspiring blogger. I’m assuming this is going to be part of your ebook?

  • Scott McKenzie

    Hi Jeff some great tactics here, quite thought provoking thanks. Thanks for the post.

    Jeff, good stuff.  But very surprised you didn’t credit any of the thoughts on motivation to Dan Pink’s book Drive. “What science knows and what business does”, “autonomy, mastery, purpose”, wikipedia reference, etc. are all directly from Pink’s book.

    Thanks for the post. Yes, I recognized that I could use my talent to producing income later in life. But it is all in divine order. I can use the skills and abilities I learned and developed while working in corporate America. I love the idea of AUTONOMY. The urge to direct our own lives. I found that incredibly relatable. Thanks again!!!
