One of our favorite things to do at Think Traffic is ask you, the readers, what you think about various topics and debates within blogging, entrepreneurship, and online business.
Some of our “ask the readers“ posts are mentioned all over the web, like this one about pop-ups, and this one was even mentioned on stage at the World Domination Summit by Chris Guillebeau.
Well, today we’d like to know:
What is holding you back from where you want to be online? [Continue reading…]
People like to dream about what you get when you choose to become an entrepreneur.
An exciting lifestyle.
The freedom to travel.
But what about what you give up?
Don’t forget to factor into those dreams all the sacrifices that one must make to become an entrepreneur. [Continue reading…]
If you’re like me and many other entrepreneurs that I know, your mind never stops coming up with new ideas for your business. (Much to the chagrin of your sleep schedule.)
You probably even have a system in place to captures all those ideas no matter where you are. Later, you then go through and decide which ideas are the best, most worth your time, etc.
This leads to one of the biggest mistakes that entrepreneurs make: before too long they are overwhelmed by how many projects they have going at once.
For example, how many of you run or contribute to multiple blogs? Starting a blog that matters, standing out from competition, and growing a thriving audience is hard enough. Yet, many of us work on more than one blog at a time. Why is this?

There’s a specific step every entrepreneur needs to take that isn’t talked about nearly enough.

So, what is this secret phase that almost every successful entrepreneur has gone through, but that no one cares to mention?

The feedback and insightful comments on the ask the readers posts have been phenomenal lately (and if you are newer to Think Traffic, check out them all out here). Today I want to hear your answer to a question we get all the time:
When you have a particularly great post in mind, is it better to publish as a guest post, or is posting it on your own site better?
I’m not talking about doing a crazy 50 guest posts in 50 days spree or planning a successful guest posting campaign, I’m just talking about a single post that you put multiple hours into creating and has the potential for going viral.
Now, there are a lot of potential interpretations for what “better” means to you, but I’d love to here in the comments what you think. Where is the best place to publish an epic post? [Continue reading…]
