Follow that dream Aspiring blogging entrepreneurs in search of the Holy Grail are kidding themselves by spending too much time visiting all the A-list bloggers. No doubt, we can't stop them if they believe that's where they can find the "magic formula" that will bring them success in a monetary sense.
It's an infectious phenomenon that if you're a top-ranking blogging glitterati, all the moths will be attracted to you, the 'guiding light'.
I believe the blogosphere is big enough and free for anyone to be unique in his or her own way, and to become successful by having a proper focus on how you conduct your blogging without blindly following these Pied Pipers who seem to have a hold on many bloggers who should know better.
Everyday there'll be thousands of new bloggers coming out of the woodworks and you bet many have one main thing in mind - how to make money online. Many of these bloggers are like regular visitors to the A-list blogs. You would think they have learned a lot from these visits but when you check them out at their own blogs one can conclude that there's a lot to be desired. Pretty dumb! They must be wearing blinkers!
What can you do to be different and set yourself apart? Think differently (out of the box) and be more unique than what the masses are doing.
Don't dream along with the A-listers. They are looking out for themselves. Come down to earth and work out your own niche or blogging scheme. Get the best out of your own blogging experience. Only listen to those who talk sense and take the trouble to communicate with you.
Of course, there are blogging mentors. They sincerely give you the real lowdown on how you should be blogging.
But the bottom line is this: Do you have what it takes to make a success of your blogging? Turn your blogging experience into a positive, not just follow some half-baked advice and get led up the wrong alley.
