I’ve written something for you. And I want you to have it. For free.
Some of you may have a copy and already read it. If so, you might want to read it again because you might be reminded of some things.
Back in July of 2009, I released the Six Figure Blogger Blueprint. This is an in-depth, 47-page blueprint to the business of professional blogging. I’m very proud of this report. It is meaty and contains a lot of solid, actionable information.
More importantly, though, I wrote it in order to play my part in bringing bloggers back to the basics of business. Too many bloggers are out there trying to figure out how to make money with their blogs. Yet, consistently and routinely, they seemingly fail to think about the basics of how you make money.
Banner ads aren’t dependable. The economy has led to many companies and ad networks reducing their budgets. Adsense is essentially the welfare program for bloggers – anybody can use it but the payout generally sucks. That is, unless you have a LOT of traffic. But, this business is getting more competitive by the day and building up those kinds of traffic levels isn’t exactly easy anymore.
The simple facts are these:
- Bloggers are in the right business, and if they don’t realize just how powerful the blog is as a business platform, they soon will.
- Now is the time to get this game right. The world is about to beat down our doorstep. You can’t mess around and dilly-dally with the idea of creating an online business if you want to beat the coming wave. You’ve got to make it happen now.
- Most bloggers are thinking about monetization ALL WRONG. Banner ads typically lead to frustration and nothing more (for most bloggers).
In my Blueprint report, I really do provide the Blueprint to how I’ve managed to generate over $204,000 in 2009 with only 2 blogs. And a majority of that, as my long-time readers know, had nothing at all to do with the “make money” niche. I’ve been making six figures annually as a blogger ever since 2004.
I’ve thrown my take on it, and the story of how I got there, into the Blueprint. You can read the 47-page book, or you can listen to the audio version, narrated by your’s truly.

Mark this day on your calendar.
This is the day that I am reopening the doors to the Blog Masters Club.
This is my 6-month training program for bloggers. 16 modules, totaling over 30 hours of training videos. Recorded by me personally… with the aim of being a total “brain drain” of over a decade of my experience in this business. It is extremely thorough, and I look forward to telling you more about it in the coming days.
But, for now, I encourage you to set aside an hour or so over the weekend and read the Blueprint report. If it helps you to print it out, go ahead and do that.
I look forward to hearing what you thought of the report. After you have read it, please share your thoughts in the comments below.
Let’s rock it!
