Book Description

OVER 5000 COPIES SOLD!!!

Hone your blogging voice, find your true audience, and develop the strong community of readers you've always hoped for.

Each day's chapter of 31 Days to Mojo gives you insight into the strategies and mindset that humorist Bryan Allain has used to develop a strong following for his own blog and provides you with an action item to work on for quick wins and long-term growth.

Topics covered in the book include:

Focusing one or all of the 3 Core Elements of your blog How anyone can add more humor to their writing. The secret to getting a 'YES' to your guest post request. How Cheater Posts can keep you from burning out as a blogger. Why people aren't commenting on your blog posts and how to compel them to do so. The trick to using your older content to help generate new ideas. How blogging for 30 minutes a day can get you 6-pack abs, whiter teeth, and healthier hair. (I'm kidding...please don't sue me for false advertising.)

...and many more.

In addition to the blogging knowledge, you'll also get a steady dose of the humor and nonsense that has made Bryan's blog a favorite among people who like to spit out mouthfuls of coffee while laughing, at no extra cost to you!

This will be the funniest book on blogging you'll ever read. At least until Jerry Seinfeld and Louis CK co-write one of their own.

If you're frustrated because it feels like you're no closer to achieving your blogging goals than you were 3 months ago, the principles and strategies in 31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo will help you make progress like never before from Day 1.

It's time to focus your content and your voice on the things that move you. It's time to extend the reach of your blog. It's time to build a strong community with readers who resonate with you and your message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant mojo to the bloodstream January 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book at the advice of several blogging friends with some Barnes & Noble bucks I got for Christmas. Christmas, for the mathematically challenged, was not 31 days ago. I burned through this book in less than a week, and pretty much feel I was blasted in the face with massive nugs of blogging wisdom. Is that over-selling it? Maybe a bit theatrical, I'll give you that, but this is a read worth your time.

As I went through each chapter, getting a free laugh or 3 as I went, I found myself at each point of application saying "my gosh, why don't I do that already?" This is one of those books that you can immediately walk away from and start using to make practical improvements. It's a privilege to be able to learn the secrets of a blogging giant, straight from the horse's mouth, and instantly apply it to your own blog (and then sit back and watch it grow like chia hair).

After reading Blogging Mojo, I was able to make the following changes to my blog and have already noticed lots of positive results:
-Making the reader aware of expectations.
-Understanding the "work" of blogging (consistency, practice, & diligence).
-Including part your own identity in your blog and writing style, so people feel attached.
-Established the "Core Elements" of my blog in written form, to give me focus and rein in my topics.
-A ton more of practical thoughts, including my blog's layout, domain name, networking, and goals.

I'm keeping this one on the top shelf of how-to's, as well as an overall good read for people who aren't afraid of laughter (personally I'm afraid of people who are afraid to laugh- how's that for irony?). It's more than worth shelling out $5, so do it today, and get your mojo rollin'.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life December 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book at the urging of a friend of mine who also blogs. I was ready to quit blogging. Deep down, I knew I shouldn't quit. I knew there was something in it for me and that it was something I was passionate about. I just wasn't getting anywhere. That is, until I read Bryan's book. After reading this book and following its advice (the latter part being more important than the former), my blog went from approximately 1,400 page views to its current 5,642 pageviews in a little more than three weeks. I've also gone from 21 Twitter followers to approximately 1,700 in that same period of time. People read my blog. People comment. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I'm enjoying it again and I continue to learn. In addition to the book, Bryan actually connected with me personally when I reached out to him. He's been a good resource and has plugged me in with people who have also helped me. He genuinely cares about his "tribe" and helping them succeed. Nowhere in his book does he promise this will be easy. I believe the readers who have left poor reviews have not put the work in that is required to get genuine results. That, and the truth is that blogging isn't for everyone. At any rate, if you love blogging, you need to read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Win November 8, 2011
By Klerik
Format:Kindle Edition
31 Days to Find Your Blogging Mojo changed my blogging life. I went from posting less than 20 posts a year to about 2 posts a week. My reader volume more than tripled into a steady reader base. I feel more confident both in my blog and as a blogger. I started theclericreturns in 2009 with little to no real drive, but now, its become a primary outlet for all of my creative writing as well as essays and tech reviews. Without 31 Days, I'd feel like a sexually repressed teenager wearing a chastity belt in a brothel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flushing out Ideas. March 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my most favorite parts of my job here at Plywood People, is managing our blog. On a daily basis I get to read about projects, people, and ideas that are addressing areas of need that are often neglected or overlooked for many well-rationalized reasons. But the people who we get to interact with and feature, are individuals who aren't trying to rationalize the brokenness. They're seeking to create solutions to society's pressing problems. They want to do something about it. We want to share their stories.

The purpose of our blog is a little bit multi-faceted.

1. We highlight others who are doing good work, and draw attention to what makes them and their projects unique.
2. We share content that we believe is relevant to innovators, entrepreneurs, and people who care about doing good.
3. We spread the word about our projects, events, and what we're learning.

Each month we try to have a different area of thought that we're contemplating. One month our focus was flushing out what it means to be "Busy." Another month we focused on intentionality, and currently we are thinking about courage/bravery/fear.

We are realizing that in order to gain a community around us who cares about the things we're writing about, we need to listen to what they are saying and asking for. Once we have an understanding of who they are and what they're looking for, we can meet their needs by addressing those issues through the musings on our blog. We need to ask questions that are meaningful to them so they feel free to share what they're thinking and feeling.

We have a VERY generous community of people who all volunteer their thoughtful ideas and share them with our readers.
