Here’s the handout and worksheet [Download PDF Here] that I created for yesterday’s Blog Meetup! I had a blast meeting local bloggers from all types of life and who were interested in many different types of content!
I walked 60+ bloggers through this sheet and talked candidly about three significant reasons why most bloggers can’t make much money with their blogs. In a nutshell I covered:
- Internal competition and cannibalization of your own content and advertising potential.
- Lack of content focus that proves to be attractive to advertisers.
- Inability to express adequately and effectively the best of who you are as a person and blogger which provides unique value for advertisers.
I listed out resource posts in the side of the sheet for reference.
And although it was fun walking through the sheet it was more fun to simply meet other bloggers! I met one or two mommy bloggers, a history blogger, some news and editorial bloggers, some local music, arts, and entertainment bloggers, bloggers who loved to cover tennis, bloggers who covered small business and finances, a few non-profit bloggers, and more.
@Dustinv even managed to snag a shot of me in my element – and that’s really what was so satisfying about this local meetup since it reminded me concretely why I do what I do: I love sharing and teaching others to be more effective with their blogs.
Not only that I love helping people to get more motivated and more energized to take their blogs to the next level.
It’s such a pleasure to serve other people in such a simple way! Thanks everyone for coming out and I can’t wait for the next one!
And if you are in the area then I’d love to see you there as well!
