While I may not be the worlds biggest blogging cheerleader, I know I’m one of the biggest in Indiana.
A few years ago, I attempted a local effort to teach people to blog. With the auto industry jobs leaving my surrounding tri-county area, I felt a calling to help the newly unemployed learn how to make a living via the Internet.
What I found was a wall of resistance. So many people have a strong fear of writing because they’re afraid of putting a comma in the wrong place or using the wrong variation of there, their or they’re – Isn’t that sad?
It’s my personal belief that everyone has a story that someone else wants to hear or read.
A person can take whatever lacks in their writing ability and create a character entirely around it.
If E.E. Cummings can become one of the worlds most recognized and celebrated poets without the use of periods and entirely in lower case, anyone can take writing faux pas and churn out success.
The secret is the passion.
In all my years working online, I have found it easy to overlook writing errors when the passion for the topic shines.
It’s that fear of writing that brings me to my personal challenge to all of you. Did you know there’s a rather large list of blogs that accept guest posts? Many of those blogs are a page rank 5 or higher which can in turn be a tremendous benefit to your own online efforts.
Are you brave enough to submit a guest post to one or more of those listed? If not, what exactly is stopping you?
