Pro Blogging Tip: Where Your Attention and Energy Goes Grows

Ryan Biddulph Travel ExperiencesI am writing this guest post for Joy at midnight after a fun but long blogging day.


Where your attention and energy goes, grows. I give substantial attention and loving, generous energy to blogging on a daily basis. My blog grows in terms of worldly success because I give oodles of hours, significant effort and a loving, caring vibe to blogging. Where your attention and energy goes, grows. Give a tiny bit of attention to blogging and even if you blog in generous, caring fashion, your blog cannot grow quickly because you only give a little attention to blogging. Little attention means little growth. But the other crowd screws up too; some bloggers give tons of attention to blogging but vibe mainly from fear, scarcity and poverty. Visualize a crowd working 15 hours daily – plenty of attention – from a strained, forced, hard work consciousness vibe. Giving 15 hours of slaving, straining striving, fear, pain and suffering to blogging grows fear, pain and suffering in your life, along with a little bit of worldly success.

The remaining crowd of pro bloggers and aspiring pro bloggers gets it. This crowd gives 6 to 8 to 10 hours of generous service to blogging daily. Giving a significant amount of loving, generous energy to blogging positions you to be a highly successful blogger because all that attention and all that generous energy grows into something special. Pros know this. Every pro blogger I personally know put in many thousands of hours of attention and generous energy before making it big. Nobody can use a time machine to move forward 5 years. All you can do is work 10,000 hours – or more – during that 5 year stretch, generously serving readers by creating, by connecting and by opening multiple streams of income through which you offer valued, premium service.

How many hours do you generously work on your blog weekly? 40 hours? 60 hours? Or 1 hour? What predominant vibe do you maintain while blogging? Do you blog calmly, from a relaxed, generous, abundant, trusting vibe? Or do you run around panicked, from a stingy, frenzied, self-serving vibe, mainly? Top pros generously help people for a high number of hours weekly. Most work well over 40 hours weekly to get their blog off of the ground. Some work 60 to 70 hours weekly, generously helping folks. I have not missed a day working in many years. Typically, I work 6 to 8 hours daily or more for 7 days a week. Conservatively, I work 42 hours weekly but the real number is more like 50 hours or more. But the actual volume of work is just the attention factor; I needed to cultivate a generous, trusting, giving energy to see the journey through and to position myself to succeed.

Professional bloggers give a professional blogging effort well before they make their first penny online. Remember this if you feel the urge to panic, bail and quit blogging, when nothing seems to be coming together. Trust yourself. Trust in the blogging process. Know that success is yours. Everything moves forward and grows at its own pace if you move forward, keep blogging and grow at your own pace. But you need to give ample generous, loving, trusting energy to blogging during highs and lows; especially during low periods. Sure you need to embrace your fears and negative emotions to clear out these energies but largely, blog from an abundant, trusting vibe, for 4 to 8 hours daily or more.

Thanks for your article Ryan.

So pleased to hear I’m not the only one Blogging After Dark.

Hello Ryan and Joy..
This is so true – Where your attention goes so does energy and I might add, momentum. Once you rev up the focus and direction and stay with it, change happens. One must take action ….

    Joy Healey - January 7, 2020

    Thanks Lesly,

    Yes, that’s a good point. Momentum can help improve your focus – especially as you start to see results.

I totally agree with you when you said Where your attention and energy goes, grows.

Nothing worth it can grow if one doesn’t put his or her attention to it, because with this, you create and put a positive impact to it.

Just like somebody who starts a business or a blog and wants it to grow, if your attention is not there, it will become less important to you and the energy you need to put into it, will never come.

    Joy Healey - January 7, 2020

    Thanks Reginald,

    Yes, it’s easy to start with good intentions but then your attention drifts and before you know it, it’s all fallen apart 🙁

This is a great post you have here, Ryan. I must say it seems like you were talking to me.

I give little or no time to my blog, but this article now changed my mindset and I am going to implement it soon.

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful piece here.

It was helpful.

    Joy Healey - January 15, 2020

    Hello Elochi,

    Ryan’s example is an inspiration to us all. I’ve been lucky enough to have had his support with excellent guest articles such as these and he’s really encouraged me to keep going, just by his generous attitude and example.

I Was really upset about my blogging phase, but your article has pushed me to work hard again

    Joy Healey - January 15, 2020

    Hi Anirudh,

    I think this post has ‘spoken’ to many bloggers (including me) and they have realised that they need to work harder.

Lots of great content in here. I want to focus more on my website for 2020. I know I have come a long way. Ryan is so right that one needs to spend time in one’s blog daily. I have been guilty of not doing that. I find I spend most of my time in my home keeping and Self Care Facebook group. I need to focus back to my website as being the main focus with Facebook Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter being the hubs.

    Joy Healey - January 16, 2020

    Hi Marilyn,

    Good to see you here, although we ‘know each other’ from your Facebook group. I am pretty wary of making FB the focus of my marketing because they once shut down a page of mine for no reason I could think of. Particularly annoying as I had bought Likes FROM FB, so I lost that money and that wouldn’t tell me what I had done wrong to give me chance to fix it.

    Another coach whose info I follow is saying the same – don’t put all your eggs in the FB basket.

    As it happens I’m participating in a blogging group at the moment where we are all actively working on our blogs. If you’d like to join I’m sure you’d be welcome. You probably already know Lesly Federici. She’s running it and you (and any other serious blogger) can read more about it here: https://www.leslyfederici.net/engage-or-die-said-a-traffic-muse/
