A blogger who sets up a blog without long terms goals and focuses only on how to maximize profits within the shortest period of time is regarded as a money blogger. It is pertinent to know that money never yields creativity but creativity itself can yield money beyond expectations. In my last post, I talked about the creative mindset of a blogger with emphasis on some traits such bloggers posses.
Today, I will highlight some features of a blogger who has the money mindset. A money mindset blogger is only concerned with money and stresses himself to the limit.
1. Low Quality Posts with Loads of Affiliate Links
The money mindset blogger is not interested in writing good posts; he spends less time in planning his post because all his interest is centered on how to sell his affiliate links. A blogger who doesn’t watch football suddenly finds himself writing about a club’s jersey because he assumes anyone going through his blog would automatically buy the affiliate links cluttered all over his blog; this is a scenario of a money mindset blogger. The money mindset blogger does little or no research about his topic and cares only about the money.
2. Google Ads
A money mindset blogger is so passionate about Google’s ad network because he probably had read success stories of bloggers enjoying proceeds of their HARDWORK. He set up his blog and registers with an advertising network, preferable Google. After publishing several low-quality posts, nothing happens, he becomes furious and maybe give-up entirely. The key to success is to learn from instructions; experience has always been a bad teacher. That’s why I always suggest bloggers to identify with a blogging mentor before attempting to start a blog. Many bloggers have failed today because they couldn’t re-ignite that initial blogging spark after having one terrible experience.
3. Asking Wrong Questions and Being Selective
Even when a money mindset blogger has decided to seek professional advice from pro-bloggers, he asks the wrong questions. A money mindset blogger would rather ask what kind of ad placement and/or network would suit him best instead of asking what makes a blog successful. Even when the right question is asked, he might be too uncomfortable with words like; persistence, dedication and pro-activity but words like earn and earn more will constantly form vibrations within his nerve cells.
The truth is that no one likes blogs that tend to take advantage of them, when a visitor finds it difficult to differentiate between affiliate links and actual blog contents; that becomes a big letdown. When you lose one direct visitor, you automatically loose 20-visitos indirectly. Words spread and a blogger with a money mindset won’t have his blog spared.
When money is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; but when character is lost, all is lost. Your character is your blogging integrity, if you handle it without guard, you might just be blogging in vein.
