After circling the globe for the past 6 years I have some travel tales to tell.
I have been attacked by 2 wild men in Kathmandu, Nepal.
I was also chased by 2 Thai ladyboy prostitutes in Bangkok, Thailand.
Toss in encounters with a spitting cobra in Bali and an 8-inch centipede in Thailand and you have the makings of a Netflix series.
I learned 3 clear blogging lessons from experiences I’ve had on the road and want to share these travel tales with the readers of NewsAndViews
today.Top Blogger Ryan Biddulph reveals 3 vital blogging lessons to the blogging community Click To Tweet
1: Be Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable (Living in the Jungles of Costa Rica)
We spent 6 weeks in the remote jungles of Costa Rica a few years back.
No running water.
3 miles away from civilization
Mosquito nets over your bed.
I learned very quickly how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable.
From hot, humid conditions to constantly being on alert for bullet ants, fer de lanz snakes and scorpions, to having no human beings around for miles, Kelli and I had to live in thrilling, fascinating and yes, highly uncomfortable circumstances for a month and a half.
In order to see toucans, Mealy Amazon parrots, sloths and monkeys, and in order to live amid the peace and quiet of the remote jungle, we had to deal with tough situations.
Blogging is no different.
If you want to be successful, and enjoy the sweet taste of being a full-time blogger, you need to take the path less traveled: you better become comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Write your first guest post. Even if it scares you.
Write your first eBook Even if it terrifies you.
All growth, success, happiness, and fun occurs outside of your comfort zone.
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable to become a successful blogger.
2: Trust Happy Referrals (Traveling to Kovalam in Kerala)
“You need to visit Kerala. Aka “The God’s Own Country” Yes, It is indeed a Paradise.”
Before we booked an apartment in Kovalam, Kerala, many people in places like Pondicherry and Bangalore told us Kerala was among the best places to visit in India.
I had seen beautiful pictures of the region but hearing feedback from happy Indians, who smiled from ear to ear when referring me to God’s Own Country, sold me. I didn’t have to think twice about visiting this province.
After visiting Kovalam I was not disappointed. I fell in love with the place instantly, from the friendly, laid-back people, to the gorgeous jungle, to the scenic beaches, great food, and overall lovely vibe.
Kelli and I spent 2 weeks in Kovalam and also lived in Muhamma for a week.
Trusting happy folks referring us to Kerala was a smart move.
Ditto for your blog.
If you are looking for a blogging mentor, trust happy referrals. Satisfied, happy friends who rave about a helpful blogger will virtually always lead you in the right direction.
This works both ways; when you make your readers happy by sharing helpful content, promoting your fellow bloggers and by blogging with a generous, loving energy, your happy readers will refer their friends to you, growing your blog traffic and profits.
3: Nature Is the Ultimate Inspiration (Enjoying Savusavu Fiji for 4 Months)
Savusavu, Fiji was the most gorgeous, pristine, unbelievably clean, clear place I ever visited.
I have seen many tropical paradises, from Bali to Kerala, to Costa Rica, and all were amazingly beautiful, but Savusavu looked like the planet Pandora in the movie Avatar.
Visibility levels in the water reached 100 feet during the high season. On a clear night, looking toward the sky felt like being in a planetarium.
The sunsets we enjoyed were mind-boggling.
This tiny community in the South Pacific, in the middle of nowhere, taught me how nature is the ultimate inspiration, for blogging, or for anything.
I created Blogging From Paradise in Savusavu, trashing my old blog to hatch my current blog. I also began writing my eBooks in Fiji. Toss in my renewed blog post and video marketing creative tear, when sitting amid the brilliant, clean nature of the South Pacific, and I quickly learned that nature is perfection, and simply being with nature generates unlimited creative ideas.
The next time you run into writer’s block, walk outside. Be with nature. Go for a walk. Even if you are in a busy city, breathing deeply and looking toward the sky gives you a little creative nudge that can lead to a torrent of prospering, fun, fascinating blogging ideas, whether for posts, videos or some business venture.
Nature is perfect. It behaves with precision, even if our minds inaccurately see chaos or disorder. It’s the ultimate form of inspiration for any struggling blogger.
