    How to Create an Audience for Your Authority Blog9 create your blog audience
    For most bloggers, their authority site is nothing without an audience. Even those who proclaim to write just for the sheer enjoyment of writing readily admit that getting more eyeballs on their writing would be rewarding. And yet, it is a challenge. Gone are the days when you could simply upload content and attract visitors by virtue of the fact that there simply wasn't that much content on the web (relatively speaking). These days you need to be savvy about what you write and how you promote it. Having said that, creating an audience for your blog isn't nearly as complicated as many people make it out to be, especially if you're willing to do the simple things well. That's exactly what we're going to explore in this post.Read More…

    Creating a Successful Authority Blog: A Complete Guide to Branding3 authority blog branding
    Content is king. You may be familiar with the above quote. It was coined by Bill Gates in a 1996 essay which was eerily prescient of the upcoming explosion in popularity of the internet. The words are favored amongst online content creators as a way of validating the worth of the written word against other "contenders" for importance (such as design). And while one cannot underestimate the importance of content when it comes to building a successful blog, we live in a world where quality content alone does not suffice. Multiple elements must combine in a synergetic fashion in order to give a blog the best possible chance of success. Make no mistake -- the quality of your content is vitally important. In fact, we have a whole post dedicated to creating great content later in this series. But branding is arguably just as important, yet so often neglected. With that in mind, in this post I want to explore the importance of branding, give you examples of great branding across the web, then explain what you need to do in order to brand your authority blog in a compelling manner.Read More…

    The journey to building a blog that generates a sizeable passive income is fraught with challenges. Of those challenges, the very first one you face is arguably the most pivotal and the most paralyzing. In fact, this first challenge often stops people from starting a blog at all. I am talking about your blog's topic. The decision as to what your blog will be about is likely to be a key defining factor in its success, and yet when you're first starting out you're hardly less qualified to make the right decision. The whole process can seem utterly overwhelming and the fear of getting it "wrong" can prevent you from making any decision at all. With that in mind, in this post I want to equip you with the understanding you will need to make an informed decision about your blog's topic. I am going to reveal the two very different options you have when it comes to picking a topic for your authority blog -- two options which, when combined, enable anyone to create a successful and profitable blog.

    Best of Both Worlds: How to Build a Freelance/Passive Business Online1 preview freelance passive business
    In my experience, the worlds of freelancing and passive income are often perceived as being at odds with each other. This is something that I initially struggled with when I first decided that I wanted to quit my job and build an online business back in May 2011. I was immediately drawn to the concept of passive income -- who wouldn't be? However, it was in fact freelancing that enabled me to quit my job in December of that same year. Despite that, I have never lost sight of my passive income goals. I continued to work on my blog, Leaving Work Behind, and today it complements my freelancing income and has (in my opinion) the potential to grow beyond it. The fact is this: freelancing and passive projects can be complementary, and in this series of posts I want to show you how to create and build a successful authority blog alongside your freelancing business.Read More…
