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.
Well, today we’d like to know:
What is holding you back from where you want to be online?
Maybe the answer is financial, physical, or even psychological, but I challenge you to nail down exactly what it is that is holding you back so that you can work to overcome it. If you never find out what is keeping you from achieving your goals, you’ll never reach them.
Let us know in the comments below this post what is holding you back from where you want to be online.
Last Time on “Ask the Readers”
Previously on “ask the readers” we asked, “is it better to publish as a guest post or is posting it on your own site better?”
My favorite answer came from James Clear. Here’s an excerpt:
“If you’re serious about building a brand online, then your absolute best stuff should always go on your site. In my opinion, if you’re not demanding that you deliver your best stuff to your own audience, then you’re not serious about becoming an authority in your area.
Additionally, I think it’s easy for us to get caught up in our tiny section of the blogosphere and forget that it’s a really big world out there. 99.9999999% of the people in the world have never heard of Copyblogger or Problogger or Think Traffic.
Here’s what that means: if a post is going to go truly viral, then it should be on your site. The likelihood of a post going viral simply because it was on a “bigger” site than yours is very unlikely. What are the odds that your post goes up on a big blog, a social media power user happens to see it, and it ends up going viral because of that? Why not just post it on your site and email a group of 10 power users who might be interested? That sounds like a better use of your time and energy.”
