ROTE 037: Jeff Bullas and Blogging the Smart Way
When it comes to blogging you have a lot of options. You can create a WordPress site and just start throwing content out there that you are passionate about, or actually put your blog to use and create something of value. This is where most bloggers get it wrong…
There are currently over 100 million blogs in the world today and every time you put out a new article or try to get someone to your site, you are fighting against 100 million other sites.
Blogging can make you rich, famous and even a millionaire on the process… but only if you look at blogging as a legitimate business and way to grow your brand.
This is exactly what we are going to be talking about in the latest episode of the Rise of the Entrepreneur.
