What the Heck is GDPR? (and How to Make Sure Your Blog Is Compliant)

Ever get that feeling that something’s just waiting to bite you on the ass?

A disturbance in the force that you just can’t put your finger on?

You’re sure it’s not your anniversary?

Your kid’s piano recital?  

Maybe it’s the cable bill.

Dammit.

You can’t place what it is, but something’s waving a red flag.

15 Persuasion Techniques Stolen from Emails That Make $10K/Month on Autopilot

Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it?

Not just making $10K/month, which would be awesome all by itself, but making $10K/month on autopilot.

My guess is that this dream has tickled your brain once or twice.

After all, he’s the guy who wrote the emails mentioned in the headline — the ones that make $10K/month on autopilot.

26 Writing Exercises That’ll Give Your Content More Punch and Power

Wouldn’t you love to smash your content out of the ring every time?

To always land that knockout blow, just like your blogging idols?

Imagine having the same audience of cheering fans, clamoring to read your next post (or to buy your next book).

Yep. That’s the dream, alright.

But let’s face reality. When you sit down to write new content, it never quite measures up to the greats. (How do they make it look so easy?)

You’d love to write like the heavyweight blogging champions you admire, but right now you feel more like the puny guy at the punching bag. You may as well grab another soda and flop in front of the TV.   

But don’t throw in the towel just yet.

You may not write like those blogging champions now, but that doesn’t mean you never will. If you exercise your writing muscles, you too can become one of the greats.
