- Blogging Resources at a Glance (Cheat Sheet)
It’s a serious collection of blogging resources including:

And by serious, I mean serious. It’s a hard-core collection of some of the best blogging resources that will help you succeed where others fail.
I will continue to add blogging resources, but you will already find a treasure trove of great articles, books, podcasts, videos and more to help you start your blog, improve your blog, or bring an old blog back to life.
I help a lot of people start blogs. I shave years of potentially painful lessons off of their learning curve, so they can get started doing more of what they love, avoid some of the many pitfalls, and build a blog they love (if it feels like a chore, you’re doing it wrong.)
If you haven’t already started a blog, this might be just the resource roundup you need to help you get started and to help you leap frog ahead.
There are lots of reasons why you might start a blog, if you haven’t already. Maybe you want to start a movement. Maybe you want to land your next dream job. Maybe you want to make friends around the world. Maybe you want to explore your creativity. Maybe you want to launch a writing career and build your next book. Maybe you want to build an online business, one post at a time.
The thing that I try to teach people is that working on your blog, is working on your life. You learn a lot about your personal productivity, your values, your ability to ship ideas, your ability to connect with people, and ultimately, what you want to spend more time doing. A blog is a great way to build a personal platform for giving your best, where you have your best to give in the service for others.
And if you monetize your blog, and if you master creating and capturing value, it can be one of the smartest ways to combine passion and profit. The key to keep in mind is, do what you would do for free, but blend it with doing what people will pay you for, in a way that uses your unique strengths, makes you come alive, adds value, and helps change the world in your way.
Everybody has ideas. Some share them. Some shape them. Some ship them. Some productize them. Some let them die.
Put a little dent in the universe, a post at a time.
