So, My First Ever Blog Post Under My Own Name

Back in 2010 I had four blogs that I was posting on weekly under various pen names. They weren’t successful. I believe the content was good, but I just couldn’t get traffic to them.

I was in Chris Freville’s mastermind group at the time and every couple of months we’d meet up and report our progress to our peers. Many round the table that day may remember how my feedback ended up being almost a table thumping, frustrated rant at my lack of success.

So why am I starting blogging again? Because I believe that in this business you only fail when you give up, and the potential rewards are too good for me to consider stopping just yet.

Why should you be interested in reading my blog? Because despite my limited success with blogging I have had some success with ebooks. Now I believe I’m closer to finding a way to make good money online than ever before.

Why? Because I have a product that’s nearly finished after (too many ) months of development and because I am now a member of Alex Jeffrey’s Inner Circle. Alex has a knack of keeping things simple and encourages you to be accountable.

So, in the spirit of accountability, I intend to start documenting my progress on this blog. You may find it useful to see what I intend to do and whether I achieve it. My targets for this week are:

1. Participate in a Giveaway Event to start building a list.
2. Complete a first draft of a WSO sales copy.

I’ll post my progress next week and I’ll also tell you about the progress I’ve made prior to this post. I’m hoping it’ll help you think about what you should be doing and help you achieve your goals as well.

Please post your comments. I’d love to hear from people who are in a situation similar to mine and wanting to build an online business. Let’s take action.

  1. Hey David

    Great to see that you have your blog up and running 🙂

    I look forward to reading your next post.

    PS I noticed that you have filed this article under “Uncategorized” You need to change that to a keyword heading. Hope that makes sense

    1. Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the advice. Had my eye on other things and moved on too quickly, but as you can see I’ve changed the category now.

      Keep in touch and let me know how you’re getting on.


    1. Hi Roger
      Thanks for taking the time to post.

      Yes, those two ingredients have me feeling good about making progress, and feeling positive about the direction you’re going is another great driver.

      Keep in touch


  2. That was a very good read. Someone who actually thinks and understands what they are blogging about. Quite difficult to find of late, especially on the web . I bookmarked your web blog and will make sure to keep coming back here if this is how you always write. thank you, keep it up! .

    1. Thanks for your kind words Mohsen. I intend to keep my blog posts honest so hopefully you’ll find coming back worthwhile.
