July 5, 2017
On July 4, 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed. That day became the start of the great American experiment. Our nation’s fathers understood one thing, write for future generations!
When I look at the wording in the Declaration, I see heart, passion, and tears poured into that one document. It stands as a testament to hard work, ingenuity, and dedication to the work at hand.
Ever wish you had all the information you needed to become successful in anything? It’s said if you listen to two hours of audio a day, read 1 book a month, and watch several teaching videos, you’ll become an expert in just 7 years.
I listen to podcasts on a near daily basis. I’ll listen to money tips, entrepreneurial advice, book writing, blogging, and even the occasional TV show podcast. The world of podcasting is huge and growing by the day.
It’s Memorial Day. This is a day we’re to sit back and remember the sacrifices our men and women in the Armed Forces have made so we can have a free nation.
For most Americans, Memorial Day is just another holiday where we can escape the clutches of work. From the onset of the American Revolution to the war on terrorism, brave men and women have given their lives in service of this great nation.
If you’ve ever decided it was time to begin writing your blog, you’re right. Today is the best time to begin honing your message and declaring to the world you have something worth saying.
Most new bloggers struggle with finding their particular niche. Getting good quality advice is hard to come by. You browse the internet and remain confused by the vast majority of advice.
Last week, I launched my annual reader survey. This survey is designed to help me create more relevant content for you. This blog is a relationship and the road goes both ways.
This is why I do this survey. I want to give you a voice in what I write and create. This year’s survey was not the success that I was hoping for. Maybe it was the timing and maybe people are tired of taking surveys.
I want to make sure my blog is serving your needs and delivering the best of quality in content. But I can’t deliver what you need unless I learn more about you and your desires and needs. This is why I created my 2017 Reader Survey.
Would you be willing to take just a few short minutes and fill out this survey? I promise it’s painless and really simple. There are only 4 sets of questions.
By filling out this survey, you’re ultimately helping create a better experience for you. Your input is so important to me. The survey is super easy to fill out, and the results are anonymous. It shouldn’t’ take more than a couple minutes.
Thanks for your help!
Everywhere you look on the web, people say email marketing is everything for bloggers and online marketers. This one aspect of having a blog or business is critical to its success.
It allows you to stay in touch with your audience. It gives you permission to access their email inbox. Without their permission, you’re breaking the law.
When I began this adventure of blogging back in 2009, I had no idea where I wanted to go with it. I knew it would be fun, but I didn’t realize I could change people’s lives through my writing.
Last year, someone came up to me and told me they found something I had written. Now, this wasn’t something on my blog, but something I had given them in one of the bible studies I had led. Tears in her eyes, she said, “Jason, you have no idea what you wrote meant to me. I was having a rough day, and your words were just what I needed.”
As a blogger, I love when I get to look back at what I’ve accomplished in a given year. This past year, I’ve written nearly 120 blog posts. That’s a lot of writing. In fact, it’s so much that I could have written a 75,000-word book. That’s the size of a regular 350-page novel. WOW!
Now that 2016 has come and gone and 2017 is fresh and new, I wanted to take a look back at some of the best blog posts/podcasts episodes I’ve written/recorded last year.
