About SmartBloggerSo, you have a blog. (Or you’re thinking about starting one.)

But you’re not an average blogger.

Blogging is more than just a fun hobby for you. Much more.

You’re excited about where it could lead you because you know the potential is huge.

Successful bloggers land book deals, launch online businesses, attract high-paying clients, become recognized thought leaders… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

But it doesn’t happen overnight. And if you don’t have the right approach, it won’t happen at all.

That’s why smart bloggers know where they want to go, and how to find the right strategies to get there.

They’re busy people who can’t afford to spend weeks spinning their wheels or running down paths that turn out to be dead ends.

Every hour they spend on blogging has to move them toward their end goal.

Even if they don’t have the answer, they know where to find it.

This blog is for those people.

This blog is for you.

The Origins of Smart Blogger

Smart Blogger is the next step in the evolution of Boost Blog Traffic (BBT), created by popular blogger Jon Morrow in 2012.

Jon has an incredible personal story. You can read about it here and here.

But this blog isn’t about Jon.

It’s about you, where you’re heading, and how we can help you get there faster.

Want some proof we’re up to the task?

Boost Blog Traffic enjoyed one of the smartest blog launches in history, building an audience of over 13,000 email subscribers even before publishing a single post.

Since that launch, the blog’s popularity has skyrocketed. Here are some highlights:

  • It has grown its audience to over 100,000 email subscribers
  • It created a $100K+ a month business based around teaching people about writing and blogging
  • It has published viral posts attracting thousands upon thousands of shares

But despite all this success, we sensed it was time to shift focus.

Because you know what? Traffic isn’t everything.

In fact, traffic is irrelevant unless it takes you somewhere useful — otherwise, it’s a meaningless vanity metric.

And that’s why Smart Blogger is about more than just traffic (though we’ll still teach you how to get tons of that.)

It’s about being intentional with your blogging efforts and always keeping one eye on the prize.

It’s for people who know that a blog without a clear goal is like a killer resume without a dream job to apply for.

Smart Blogger combines practical, strategy-infused blogging advice with a healthy dose of inspiration to keep you going when things get tough (and they will get tough.)
