Today I have a special opportunity: I get to expose Stuart Walker on his own blog. That’s right. For this post I’ve taken control of Nichehacks. And I’m going to show him how the site should be run. Okay, maybe I should explain: Last month I wrote a post about how I saved a dying […]
This last month has been a month of reflection: On life, love, blogging, marketing, writing and everything else in between. Why? Because as I sit here, the clock turns to midnight, and I’ve officially been a blogger, marketer and life-lover for a whole year. (See how to find your niche for blogging) And it’s taught […]
I'm going to be really honest with you for a second: Writing a blog post isn't hard. Anyone can sit at their computer, hammer out 1,000 words and stick it on the internet. In fact, I'd wager hundreds of people have done that in the seconds it's take you to read this. But you know […]
What I Learned From Writing 325,000 Words In 12 Months, Becoming A Professional Blogger & Building A $3,500 Per Month Business
If this time last year you would have told me that I was going to be a professional blogger, I’d have had two words for you: Yeah, right! I'd never been featured on another blog, nobody had ever paid me for my writing and I was still selling shoes in a shop. Because, that’s what […]
Guest blogging is key to getting traffic. Why? Because the traffic it brings is specific, targeted and warm. People who come to your site through guest blogs not only want to be there, they like you.

Headlines are, by far, the most important part of anything you write. Why? Because they’re the reason anything gets read. You’ve never picked up a newspaper, clicked a link or watched a video based purely on the content. How could you? Without the headline you have no idea what it is. Or, if you even […]
So, you've started a blog. Now what? Well you need to get it in front of people. But, that's easier said than done, isn't it? Plus you've got the worry of creating content, editing, running all of your social media accounts and generally being lord of all you survey. And, in the midst of it all, it's easy […]
Bloggers block. It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned pro or a first time writer; when it comes it’s the most frustrating feeling in the world. I write blog posts for a living – trust me – it doesn’t get any better the more you do it either. As a Blogger then, it’s useful to […]
You put your heart and soul into your products, don’t you? You make them absolutely perfect. Down to the finest, smallest little detail. There is no part of that product you don’t know everything about. Everyone you’ve shown it to loves it. And in your head it’s already sold in the thousands. Then comes the […]
Earlier this year I took a trip to Brunei. I spent three weeks on a sun lounger basking in the location independent lifestyle of a freelance blogger. That mostly involved writing, looking at Monkeys and not drinking (I found it out it was a dry country after I got there). When the three weeks came […]
I’m going to take a second to read your mind. Okay? Okay. There are two things you love as a Niche Marketer: 1. Quick Growth: Because, the more people who visit your site, the more money you make. 2. Free Marketing: You started your Niche Site with a marketing budget of, well, $0. So the […]
Can I be straight with you a second? Because, there’s something I really need to tell you, and you’re probably not going to like it. But you definitely need to hear it. Ready? Your traffic building strategies suck. In fact, they’re probably the least effective way you could be spending your time, ever, in the […]
