Today I woke up to about a dozen people sharing my blog post on Twitter.
(It was the “Udemy establishes a minimum wage” piece that I wrote yesterday).
Anyway, I checked my Twitter feed, and had double digit notifications that people were sharing my work.
This isn’t atypical. On average, my blog posts are shared by about a dozen or two dozen people.
So each and every time I write a blog post, people share it on social media.
I’m not saying that to brag or anything.
The reality is that I’ve known a lot of bloggers who fail over the years.
They fail, because nobody ever reads their content.
Because, what do you think happens when you realize that nobody is reading your stuff?
Are you more likely to write more content, or to just stop writing all together?
Will you have more creativity and motivation, or less creativity and motivation?
Will blogging feel good and liberating, or will it be an ugly chore?
In my opinion this is the surest way to get your blog noticed.
If you don’t have readers, this can get it.
If you don’t have prestige and rapport, this can get it.
If you’re sad and depressed because nobody reads your stuff, this can help big time.
The funny part, is that the only bloggers who I’ve ever known to blog longterm, do this. Exactly this.
Sounds farfetched? Check out the first video, wait until the end and I’ll show you the social proof.
I think, it might motivate you to start blogging more.
Just my humble two cents, and I wish you the best.
