Imagine spending 12 hours today blindly pitching bloggers via email from a non-targeted energy.
This is forced blogging growth. Picture emailing 100 bloggers today looking for a guest posting opportunity. Forced blogging growth wastes your time, my time and our time because any time you attempt to force your way onto blogs you use an ineffective, inefficient blogging growth approach. For 100 pitches and 12 hours you will be incredibly lucky to land 5 opportunities in most cases. Why? The very fact that 100s of bloggers are not begging for YOU to guest post on their blog proves you are struggling, and not quite the successful, value-packed blogger you claim to be with your cold blogging pitch.
Think; I ask my friends, “Who wants a guest post?”
5, 10 then 20 blogger buddies take me up on my invite in hours and I write and place 20 guest posts. This is organic blogging growth. Spend years creating helpful content and building meaningful friendships with top bloggers as success slowly, steadily and surely builds up for you. I spent 10 seconds asking my blogging buddies who wanted a guest post a few months ago. 15 took me up on my invite. I landed 15 guest posting opportunities with a 10 second ask. Meanwhile, bloggers blind pitch strangers for 10 hours to land perhaps 5 guest posts. What sounds better? Landing 15 guest posts with a 10 second ask? Or landing 5 guest posts with a 10 hour ask?
Organic blogging growth beats forced blogging growth.
But one key element needs be addressed: organic blogging growth requires a significant amount of time. I spent years generously helping fellow bloggers to befriend bloggers before bloggers freely invited me or even pitched me to guest post on their blogs.
But spending time doing something the right way pays off 1,000,000 times better than wasting time doing something the wrong way.Spending time doing something the right way pays off 1,000,000 times better than wasting time doing something the wrong way.Click To Tweet
Organic blogging growth:
- permanently expands your blog traffic and blogging profits
- feels more enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching
- deeply benefits your readers and readers from blogs where you guest post
What helps you guys more? Mean spending 6 hours today blind pitching strangers guest posting opportunities? Or spending those same 6 hours writing and publishing blog posts and guest posts? Do you see what I mean? Forced blogging growth robs the blogger and their readers of value. Readers do not benefit from your blog posts and guest posts if you spend all day pitching strangers and you do not generate the traffic and profits you’d be building if you spent all day writing and publishing blog posts and guest posts through the relationships you generously, genuinely and patiently built over the years.

Could I help you by writing the eBook and actually traveling to Bali to write the thing if I spent 10 hours daily cold pitching bloggers for years? Of course not. Do you notice how bloggers who do things the ineffective, inefficient way never seem to be top bloggers in their niche? Either you force blogging growth and struggle or you follow the path of organic blogging growth, build your authority, and allow your skills, content and friend connections to increase your success over the years.
The most freeing aspect of organic blogging growth is everlasting success that keeps growing, expanding and increasing year over year. While forced growth bloggers experience wild swings, ups and downs and all that chaos, your 1000’s upon 1000’s of pieces of blogging content, 20 blogging income streams and 100’s of blogging connections grow your traffic and profits to epic levels year over year, as you continue to create and connect generously. Organic blogging growth is forever.
