Bob's Journey to Full-Time Blogging

I have been blogging since early 2007 and have been earning a full-time living from my blogs since early 2009. And yes, being a full-time blogger is as good as you would imagine. Back in early 2007 I was talking to a friend of mine about the idea of building a website that I would put up a new article on a given topic each day. After brainstorming a bit, I found a couple ideas of topics that I was passionate about: Proverbs and Personal Finance. My first idea was to [Read More]

Jonathan's Blogging Journey


I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

You Don’t Have to Wait for Permission

Hello. Does anyone here have experience with a contacts database program that you'd recommend? I'm building a list of info in excel, and now in google docs. primarily church leadership contacts, organizations, schools, and a list of individuals who volunteer at events / street team members. I want the ability to create fields and lay it out the way I want it. I'm mostly contacting people with email, and facebook, but will also mail materials to them, call them, and sometimes text. I want to be able to sort the info, and easily send email from it.

Ultimately I want to be able to simply enter / edit contact info, sort and manage it, and communicate with people on specific lists.

I'm not a master of excel, I've just started using google docs and have questions about it. So I thought before I spend too much time on this trail I'd ask and see if there's a better way of doing this.

Thanks Rob. I'm just glad I had the whole day to sort through the process. It probably took me longer than most since I'm not very tech savvy. Let me know when you mark the task off your list so I can join the celebration.
Comment by Robert "Rob" E. Copeland III on December 21, 2011 at 3:55pm

Connie - A big congratulations!!  I am inspired by your commitment, good work, positive outcome, and probably a lot of perseverance. In all honesty starting a blog popped up on my Toodledo task list on 6/3/11.  It's time to get it done!!

Jonathan and Bob,

Thanks so much for providing the Blogging Your Passion 101 video series. After much procrastination, I finally went threw the entire process today and, thanks to you guys, built my blog!!! I'm tired, I'm starving, my husband is starving, and there's no reason to get out of my PJs at this point since it'll be time to go to bed again soon. I would love the feedback from anyone out there with a moment to spare.

Thanks again, guys. Let me know when the next video series is ready.

Hi to all,

 

Thanks so much for your previous comments, and for everyone who looked at my site. I’m slowly working on the revisions, and will let you all know when they are complete. I’m also posting this same post in a few different places on 48 Days, so you might see it again! I am still working at my JOB full time, so my time resources are somewhat limited, apologies as to not responding or being involved as much as I really need to be. I am working on two websites for coaching (and yes Ken, speaking)! The first is The Exceptional American, which is focused on Life Coaching, and the second is The Leader Forge, which will obviously be focused on Leadership. My passion is leadership, though I see life coaching as a solid secondary focus, as not everyone can be nor wants to be a leader specifically, but everyone can and should be working on improving their life situation. I have been slow working on things, but am now laser beam focused on my sites, my speech, and my training formats, as I am planning my transition to full time coaching and speaking by mid-January. So, any comments, critiques, encouragement and questions are and will be appreciated. I have gained much from this community and really appreciate what you all are doing on here. Thanks much!

 

Rick Seigmund

Hey Jason,

3 ideas for you

1. Have you tried the mail chimp wordpress plugin
2. When you create a form in mail chimp it also gives you a link. You can use the link in different ways to get people to sign up
3. Outsource it. Post a job on script lance someone will do it for $5-10 and it will save you the headache
