I was all set to “sell the dream” yesterday, on another blog that I would start from scratch. I even paid for the domain name, extramoneyblogging.com, in hopes to gain traction from anyone searching for “how do I make extra money blogging” or “can I make extra money blogging.” I even wrote 3 quick articles and was all excited about releasing them on the new site, along with many more that would follow. But, then I started thinking.
Why Can’t I Use My Existing Platform to Do the Same Thing?
Granted, I won’t be able to take direct advantage of the keywords, “extra money blogging,” but I will be able to do exactly what I wanted to do on extramoneyblogging.com–provide valuable content and direction by chronologically documenting my quest to make money online.
I may not have a lot of commenters on my blog, but I do have readers–readers who have been with me since the very beginning of this blog, and I don’t even write in a particular niche.
So, why would my existing readers abandon me just because I started writing about my pursuit to make extra money blogging? That’s right. They wouldn’t. If anything, they too would want to follow me on my journey.
My existing readers have every right to choose whether or not they want to read my articles when I post about selling the dream, just as readers who visit my site by way of an online search have the right to choose if they want to stay when they stumble upon an article that asks, “Why Do We Have Children?”
The Newest, New Plan
As you may have inferred, I’m going to simply begin my pursuit of “the dream” from this site. Besides, I have already established myself in the blogosphere as Romeo, from RomeoClayton.com, and as the author of How We Prevent Wealth: A Personal Finance Reflection. If I start changing things up people would start asking, what gives?
Therefore, I will continue to reflect on life and personal finance on my blog, but also now add my reflections on “the pursuit of making money online.” In marketing, such a tactic is called introducing a new product line, only I’m the product and the depth of my blog are the different lines.
I’m looking forward to having you on this journey with me.
Have a great rest of your Friday,
