When Giving Up Is Ok





Even if you draw 100 percent of your income from an Internet business, it is important to not take the online world seriously. As people we need real experiences to drive us fore ward or we can become emotionally stagnant. Growth is necessary and many times people come online as an escape rather than use it as a vehicle. Also we all run into times when our blogging tires. Then it is a good time to find real experiences that inspire us back to the grind stone, instead of using the Internet as inspiration. Blogs or their traffic never totally goes away. Dead social media profiles still get friend requests. The residual nature of the net makes leaving it completely possible. Many times people leave notes, or farewell videos just to communicate what they are doing and how people can reach them. These are common and especially so on certain years when people had been surfing the hype and needed a break. If you remotely think you want to quit now is a good time to take your vacation from the Internet.

You Only Get One Shot At Getting Your Reputation Right





There is a temptation to go out there and shake things up. But just sitting back and being extremely attentive to the people who come to you is key. This is how people fill each blog post with millions of comments. They foster deep relationships with the people who come to them. But if people go out and disengage people, they will be written off as a spammer. Sure there are many trolls and spammers who are born again and do well. But if you want to build a business and have an explosion in followers on social media then it is best to take advantage of the abundance that is handed to you instead of thirsting for the big people and the popular people. Every web celebrity has millions of requests for people who want shout outs from the somebody. But the way to get that is for them to see how well you foster your community however small. This will get you write ups on big blogs. This is where your success will come from. Your ability to play yourself and open up dialogue is everything.
