Well, it was bound to happen one day.
After three wonderful years of writing almost exclusively for Copyblogger, I’m finally branching off and launching my own blog.
But not for the reasons you might think.
It’s not because Brian Clark has finally put his foot down and refused to meet my extravagant demands.
It’s not because Sonia Simone is a pink-haired tyrant who rules Copyblogger with an iron fist.
No, the truth is, I see a problem:
Let’s say you’re not Copyblogger or Problogger or the Huffington Post.
You don’t already have a huge audience … but you do care about the readers you have, and you do care about creating really good content.
You write a great post — the kind of exceptional content that builds a relationship with your customers. You publish it to your blog. You wait for the visitors to come stampeding in, and …
No comments. No tweets. No pats on the back, telling you you’re doing a good job.
In the great cacophony we call the blogosphere, you go unnoticed, unappreciated, and unloved. Not because your ideas are unworthy, but because it’s just too damn crowded.
Your little voice gets swallowed up, almost like you never said anything at all.
And it’s starting to piss me off
The web is overflowing with spammers and trolls pumping the blogosphere full of junk and getting rewarded for it. While here you are, an intelligent, articulate person, publishing ideas that could actually help people, and nobody knows who the hell you are.
And after years of watching from the sidelines, I’ve finally decided to do something about it:
I want to teach you everything I know about building a popular blog.
I started BoostBlogTraffic.com to teach you how to get more readers, build your email list, become an authority in your niche — everything you need to get the attention you deserve.
By the time we’re done, you won’t be a spectator in the battle for attention, squeaking out your posts and praying for a couple of retweets.
You’ll be a warrior, armored with marketing know-how, brandishing your perfectly-crafted content, sending spammers scampering by the thousands as you claim your rightful spot at the top of the web.
Sound like fun?
We’ll be getting started soon.
Oh, and just to clarify, I have no intentions of leaving Copyblogger. (Even though Sonia really is a tyrant.) If anything, you’ll be seeing more of me, because writing here is one of the smartest things I can do to promote my new blog.
Still, I have every intention of making Boost Blog Traffic one of the most popular blogs in the world, and this is your chance to be there from the very beginning.
So, head on over, and I’ll talk to you soon.
