Blogging Your Passion

BYPU Logo 2Ok, this is going to sound a bit like an advertisement, but that’s because I love to recommend businesses and resources that have been helpful to me. Jonathan and Bob from Blogging Your Passion have created tons of resources that are a huge benefit to anyone that wants to start or improve their blog. Not only is their blogging “how to” site helpful, but they are successful with their other blogs as well. Here is what I have learned from them and their blogging success:

  • Discover Your Passion – This is not some mystical thing, it’s just focusing on something that you enjoy doing. This is usually something that you are drawn to and something where you have proven skills. For Bob, he focused on the world of personal finance in his own effort to get out of debt and live in financial freedom. He is also a Christian and desires to put Biblical Principles into practice in his life and how he handles money. He started ChristianPF.com which provides resources and information on the topic of money and debt. All from a Christian perspective. He has thousands of followers, and full time income from a site devoted to his passion, which is helping people reach financial freedom.
  •  A Desire to Make a Difference – Jonathan has skills in several areas and his blogging is a reflection of those skills.You can find him at JonathanMilligan.com or SimpleLifeHabits.com. These blogs are dedicated to making a difference in people’s lives using his unique gifts and abilities. A blog is a great way to make this happen! He is also generating full-time income from his blogs, since he has attracted thousands of followers as well.
  •  Build a PlatformMichael Hyatt wrote an entire book about this topic. When you have skills, passion and a desire to make a difference; the next step is to create a platform. This is your soap box. It is your microphone. It is the place where you begin to share with the world the unique way that God has made you, and the specific message you want to tell. A blog is a perfect place to start your platform, and this is why I recommend the resources from Blogging Your Passion.

So what is Blogging Your Passion? It is a blog with tons of free information about blogging. It also has detailed courses that you can purchase individually. I became an affiliate last year, because I purchased the BYPU201 course and it was very helpful to me in getting my blog up and running. (Being an affiliate means that I can earn a commission if people use my links to purchase from the site)  The best and newest part of this site is an online community called Blogging Your Passion University. I am a member of this community and it has been a huge help and encouragement to me in the blogging process. You can also be a part of this community if you sign up by October 1st. There is a short window to get involved if you are interested. You can find more information here.

The reason I got involved with blogging is because I had a passion and needed to create a platform to share this passion with the world.
