Key Tip for Online Success, Stop Reading Blogs!

By Affiliate Hat On January 15, 2010 Under Basics, Blogging, Newbie Tips, Rant

The one main advantage of blogs is that it’s easy to love reading it. Because of it’s intrinsic nature, most people prefer reading blogs rather than the traditional media, newspaper, news sites and etc. Since bloggers are friendly and do prefer to interact with people, a lot of us have just put reading as one of our daily habits.

If you’re reading this article, you probably have heard this tip a lot of times. Stop reading and start implementing. But you’re reading this blog now which means you’re doing the wrong thing? Probably yes or probably no.

If you notice, the people who are telling you that tip are the same people known as bloggers. And bloggers are the ones who produce content and drive as much people as they can to read and read and read. So how is that?

The truth is they don’t really want you not to read their blog anymore, what they want is for you to read their blog and dismiss all the other ones. Sounds bad but that’s the case. YET if you follow that tip, it would benefit you A LOT!

Stopping reading blogs is not really about not reading at all, it’s about lessening your consumption. The problem with most people who love reading is that they consume and consume and consume until they forgot and forgot all the stuffs they’ve read. In whatever business you are, it’s not really them who will move your business, its YOU. So stop blog hopping, stop exploring the blogosphere, stop subscribing to them and start doing your own thing whether it’s affiliate marketing or whatever.

Reading 2-3 blogs a day is good but if reading and reading has become a habit of yours that it starts to hurt your productivity then quit on reading.

What I’m doing, and it works great for me, is read blogs and post comments during the morning, and write and implement stuff during the evening. I also do the research during the morning/day, and write later.

Yip that is very true – you read and read and then do exactly nothing with that information. It can be a real hindrance to success.

Your post is counter productive to your own situation – telling people not to read blogs – while they’re reading your blog – that’s funny. And you’d probably get 10 times more comments and traffic if you corrected your rel=nofollow attribute. I’m only commenting because I see you’re selling links on dp for $5 a month – ordinarily, I wouldn’t waste a comment on a nofollow blog. Good luck with this stragegy!
