So God Made a Blogger

One Monday morning, a serious man with a serious goal thought…

I need someone who will write their heart out every day. Put their best work in the harsh glare of public attention, get criticized, ignored, and belittled, and maybe every once in a while experience the joy of changing the heart of one reader.

Can you bring me someone who can weave ordinary moments into extraordinary stories, turn a hard-heart into a passionate fan, wield words like a weapon, inspire and enlist the world-changing power of a 1000 “true fans”. A warrior who doesn’t flinch when the cause is just, engage instead of retreat, and respond to anyone with good intentions and an open mind.

One more felt the situation was too bleak to ask but decided to try…

God can you…

Give me someone who can diagnose a busted plugin, connect a tricky email opt-in form, adjust the padding of an author box by 10 pixels and schedule a post to publish tomorrow at 10AM sharp. A miracle worker who can seduce Google, edit a less than stellar guest post, break silos, promote a post on 5 social platforms in 5 minutes, and explain the mysteries of content marketing to the CEO.

    To be a successful blogger takes a very modern skill set that takes time to acquire. Bloggers have to be good copywriters, graphic designers, computer savvy and prepared to spend long hours with little return in the initial stages. Even then, it still takes a long time to build the stable following that is required to make it financially viable to spend all of that time and effort on it in the first place. At heart bloggers are old fashioned entrepreneurs.

    Brilliant Stanford!!! To the farmer (or, should I say “blogger”?) in all of us! Great work! Thanks.

    God seems to have made me to be a blogger too Stan. It is great to see you putting your own advice into action to create engaging content! From the comments it seems that you have succeeded. Love your work mate!

    Great example of drafting off a popular idea, Stanford. Absolutely adored “…explain the mysteries of content marketing to the CEO.”
