2. Plan Once More
Effective blogging business is powered by a well planned business model and clear goals. These are like two Siamese twins that are inseparable. So many bloggers do not have plans of where they are going and yet, they are the ones who complain that things aren’t working. I often asked them “how do you mean?”

4. Improve Your Environment
Yes, you’ve a role to play in your working environment. This part of planning could make you more productive and zealous to pursue your dreams. For instance, when I’m writing for clients or my blog, I switch off my cell phone, switch off the light and concentrate on what I’ve on my desk.
A clumsy environment takes the motivation out of you. Kills your entrepreneurial passion and dampens your self-confidence.
5. Relax With Visionary Friends
Don’t be too occupied with blogging and all these make money mumbo jumbo. You need others to succeed in life. But when making friends, please stay close to those with vision of where they are going, and a clear-mapped-out plans on how to get there.

The way to go forward is to invest more. When you start blogging for money, you shouldn’t squander all your profits. Make budgets on how to use it wisely. One great thing you could do to earn more is to build more niche blogs.
Within 3 – 6 months, your niche blogs would start generating decent income on autopilot. By working and channeling your precious energy on worthy investments, your future brightens up. Invest in domain names, auto responder service to build your list and site tracking services to know how your business is fairing.
7. Take Responsibility Now
Do you blame others for failure?
Time has come for you to take the bull by the horn. I want you to know that you’re the CEO of your blogging business. No one is going to help you succeed. If you’re not getting targeted traffic today, you can do something about it.
By pointing accusing fingers on others or the tools you use, the ability to see solutions and opportunities for growth is hindered. If only you would forget about failure and rise up again, blogging could build you a house, buy you a new sexy car and make your life beautiful. Yes, I know people whom blogging have made millionaires. Take responsibility now!
8. Ask Intelligent Core Questions
Whenever you ask the right questions, the invisible intelligence delivers the right answer in a natural way. People who do not ask questions seldom know anything. By asking, you develop that inner spirit to take action.
If someone is succeeding online and you aren’t, have you asked why? As much as possible, ask experts how they made it to the top and what you can do to grow your business. The selfless ones will help you while others would ask for money. Get ready to invest some few cash for the right answers.
9. Sharpen Your Writing Skills
Every successful blogger out there are hard-core writers. When I first came online, I couldn’t earn any reasonable income because of my inability to write articles. The web is powered via words.
There are videos and audio clips, but 85% of the web’s contents are articles. Can you write quality and interesting articles, blog posts and press releases? How fast are you when you type? You need speed, you need skill and you need a willing heart to make it work.
10. Fight Failure To Stand Still
As a blogger, a lot of things would come your way to deter your smooth sailing ship. You need to fight and be on the look-out for negative loopholes. Watch your affiliate offers and see if it’s from a credible marketer. If not, please back off and switch over to other responsible marketers.
You’re better off creating your own product that you can vouch for, than entrusting your entire business for craps.
The ultimate thing in life is to know your source and trust him to make your life sweet. I’ve succeeded with these tips to grow my blogging business and you’re ready to go. But bear in mind, the strength to begin and see the end comes from somewhere. You need God to become better in your family, career, business and life – think about it and see you at the top!
