Every now and again, someone will sell a blogging formula. Wait, everyday, not every now and again. You can learn the twelve steps someone took to reach some wonderful kind of blogging domination. Insert eye roll here.
Why Blogging Formulas Are Bullshit
But wait, I hear you say. You write about blogging and sell blogging eProducts. Yep, I surely do! But I do not sell a formula. None of my products are my magical steps to point A or how to dominate social media B.
So why are blogging formulas bullshit? Because that person is not you, and their blog is not your blog.
That doesn’t mean they have nothing to teach you. Experience is always valuable. But unless you acknowledge the variables in things like blog topic, money and time investment, when the blog was started, and many (many) more, then the formula is pointless.
That is why I made a very conscious decision to make my eCourse in particular workshop style. I give you background on a topic, how I’ve used it, and ways to consider if it will work for you.
In the end, it relates a bit to this post. Learn, by all means. But analyse if it will work for you.
Do you think there is a blogging formula? What do you think of courses that sell strategy but don’t cover analysis of implementing it to suit you?
