Blind Spots

Ego creates blind spots.

Most bloggers make common mistakes which is why most bloggers struggle.

But their ego likes creating blind spots, forcing bloggers to dodge viewing themselves and their blogs in the light of truth.


I read a comment from an inspired blogger on Blogging From Paradise, said blogger nodding along with my loving, high energy, prospering advice. 2 minutes later I click through to their blog and see a different picture from their viewpoint shared on my blog.

Let’s say I wrote about using a clear, clean, minimalist design on Blogging From Paradise because I made the dingbat mistake of overloading my blog with ads, widgets, and stuff, fearing I would not make money unless I stuffed my blog with opportunities. Currently, I post 3 sidebar elements. Plus white space, save post and page content.

My blogging buddy agrees how going minimalist prospers us and even notes leaning down their blog. But after a quick visit, I see 8 ads, 20 sidebar elements, multiple pop-ups, sliders and a site reeking so heavily of desperation that money and success cannot possibly agree with the site.

Said blogger deludes themselves, making the typical mistake of jamming more into their blog to make more money when less would bring greater clarity and greater profits.

Easily, the blogger could have read my post, learned from my mistake, trashed 95% of their ads and stuff to create a sleek, minimalist design, to boost profits, but a shocking majority of bloggers decide not to make this clear, prospering decision because their fears seem to delude them from accepting the truth of their blog.
