Achieve Huge Success Blogging

Ever wonder how people achieve huge success blogging?

Well, sure…

They get lots of traffic to their sites.

And they develop a loyal following.

Of course, they have a solid monetization plan.

They build a sizable mailing list.

And they write great content for their readers, to be sure.

But all these things are dependent on two things.

These are the two pillars that your dream to achieve huge success blogging must rest on.

Big Plan

The first thing necessary for you to have blogging success is to clearly outline your Big Plan.

So, first, determine what your big goal is.

This is a broad idea of exactly what you are looking to accomplish with your blog.

Maybe you want to sell clothes and shoes.

That might be the goal you want to achieve.

But you need to have a Big Plan for making it happen if you’re going to achieve huge success blogging.

The what and the how

You could say that your Big Plan is your how.

Your goal is the what.

But HOW to reach that goal… that’s your Big Plan.

So if your goal is to sell your fashion items, how will you do it?

Strategies are not a “plan”

Let’s say your plan is to set up a blog to sell your fashion items.

Now, you could break that plan down into specific strategies.

Things like writing about fashion news, or posting affiliate posts about specific fashion items.

But don’t confuse the strategies with your Big Plan.

Strategies are just parts of your Big Plan.

They can be started, stopped, replaced or whatever.

But your Big Plan is what will position you to achieve huge success blogging.

And that Big Plan is not going to change.

If it does, then you’re really starting your business all over again with a whole new plan for making it work.

Your Big Plan must focus on solutions

No matter what your Big Plan is, it must be focused on helping people.

If you say you want to sell fashion items, it can’t just be because you want to earn affiliate commissions.

That makes your entire blog all about you.

And it makes your blog about improving your life by building a profitable online business.

But that’s not how people achieve huge success blogging.

Successful bloggers use their blogs to improve the lives of their readers, first and foremost.

And to the extent that their lives are improved, your blog will succeed.

How can you improve lives?

You improve lives by focusing all your effort on delivering solutions to the problems your readers have.

It’s that simple.

If your readers are looking for affordable ways to travel, then you have to give them ways to do that.

Do they want to be freelance writers?

Show them how.

Whatever your Big Plan is, center it around solving the problems or your readers.

That’s how you can achieve huge success blogging.

Small Tasks

Now your Big Plan is… well… it’s big!

It is geared to helping you not just with blogging success.

But huge blogging success.

It will help you achieve huge success blogging.

So it has to be big.

But it can be a bit intimidating to shoot for the stars.

I mean, who can really achieve their dreams?

You will see what you believe

Because so many people don’t really believe they can achieve huge blogging success, few actually do.

At the end of the day, they only achieve mediocre success, or none at all.

Is it because blogging is so hard?


It’s because people’s beliefs are generally very limited.

But if you truly believe in your ability to achieve that huge blogging success, then you have a far better chance to actually see those kinds of results.

Blogging Success Mindset - You Can Do It When You Believe It

Think Big, Act Small

In order to attain that level of achievement, though, requires two things.

The first thing is to think big.

We already talked about that in terms of your Big Plan.

Now the second thing, is to act small.

You see, it takes a big vision, a big goal and a big plan to achieve huge success blogging.

But your big ideas, dreams and plans must be put into motion.

And that will only happen when you dedicate yourself to taking small actions.

Even tiny, seemingly insignificant actions.

Here’s what you must do

So, what are the actual small acts you must do to achieve huge success blogging?

Anything necessary, of course.

That means anything that will make your Big Plan work.

If that plan includes posting a video to YouTube everyday, for instance, then write a list of each small action required.

  • Come up with a subject
  • Write an outline
  • Learn how to use the software you will use to shoot the video
  • Shoot the video
  • Render the video into mp3 formatting for YouTube
  • Export it to your desktop
  • Upload it to YouTube
  • Write a good title for the video
  • Enter a meaningful description
  • Summarize your video and expand on it some
  • Link to your landing pages within the description
  • Set your video preferences like privacy, etc.
  • Add SEO tags
  • Share your video with your subscribers
  • Add social media shares and links
  • If you have YouTube cards privileges, create card links

Now, notice… this is just a partial list of small actions you would need to take in this example.

Still, none of these small actions even take into account the marketing aspect of your video, which is yet another thing you’d have to do.

Here’s when you must do them

But, here’s the point.

It’s only by taking these small actions every day, that you will be able to achieve that huge success blogging.

And you can’t just do them occasionally, or when the mood strikes.

In order for your BIG plans to pay off, you must act small.

That means, you must be absolutely relentless in tending to every little tiny detail of your business.

And you must tend to them every single day, not just when the inspiration hits you.

Get some help

If you are able to hire other people to help you with some of this, that’s fine.

I didn’t say that you, personally, have to perform every little task.

But somebody has to if you want to achieve huge success blogging.

Hire an outsourcing company like Fiverr or Upwork, or even an individual freelancer.

digital business outsource

Invest in some really good software that will help you lessen the burden of doing detailed tasks.

In the above example, that might mean a good video production software.

And it would probably also mean getting a good page editor, so you can link your videos to landing pages.

These would included things like sales and squeeze pages.

Don’t forget, too, that an autoresponder service (like GetResponse or others) will be necessary to build an email list with your videos.

All these things will help you stay on target and get those essential little tasks completed… each and every day.

Hire a Coach, Mentor, Consultant

One of the key things you should invest in is a good coach.

Find someone you trust, who can lead the way.

That person can help you with your Big Plan, but can also draw up that critical blueprint that will help you accomplish all the small tasks necessary to fuel your success.

Don’t just wing it.

Get professional help if you really want to achieve huge success blogging.

It will make your success path clear, and will vastly decrease the time, frustration and money you will need to invest.

How do people achieve huge success blogging

People achieve blogging success by (1) thinking big, and (2) bringing those plans into reality by acting small with laser precision efficiency.

These are the two things you must do, too, in order to realize your dreams.

So, get clear on what you want to accomplish with your blog.

Special: Join Donna’s Free VIP Blogging Club – Free Now… Free Forever

Then outline your Big Plan for making it happen.

Once you’ve done that, you’re half way there.

But only half way.

You then have to put your plans into action.

And that typically means lots and lots of small, sometimes mundane actions.

They may not always be exciting.

And they may pose serious challenges at times.

But trust me, you must dedicate yourself to consistently taking those small actions.

That’s the only way to bring your dreams into reality.

    Hi Donna,

    Success comes to those who believe in their goals. When you focus on a goal, the problems disappear, and when you focus on problems, your goal disappear.

    Hi Donna,
    It’s my first time reading your blog and I have to say that it’s refreshing to read your content. I’m a new blogger myself and even though I have a few articles ranking in Google, I’m still not able to get the kind of traffic I need to take off.

    This article has provided some useful insights on how to achieve massive success with blogging.

    It’s all about consistency, quality content and patience. Thanks again.

    I love this article. I always feel like my site is a work in progress. I know that it is hard to get people to come back and read you blog especially if they find you for the first time and you are having an off day

    Hello Donna,

    As usual a great post from you.

    Achieving huge success from any work you do requires patience and consistency to be exact. Moreover, there are tons of factors that affect how well you are going to perform.

    I loved the point where you mentioned Plan big but act small. That is amazing advice because we have to go ahead with baby steps for a solid blogging empire. Getting a quick-rich scheme never works for long. So, taking baby steps to reach the big goals is what I would recommend to.

    Loved the post overall, Donna.

    Keep such posts coming.

    Donna, the most powerful tip I have read here is you will see what you believe. I couldn’t agree with you more on this. When we first started, I had so many failed attempts at blogging.

    This hasn’t changed until I started believing I could succeed. After I started believing we could succeed at blogging and business, clients started pouring in.

    The power of believing is monumental.

    This blog post is a treasure.

    Hi Donna,
    I love how you broke down the steps in your you tube example. I think sometimes we think big but don’t know how to turn that into small actionable steps. Then we get overwhelmed and quit before we have even gotten started. Also on hiring a coach/mentor, people don’t appreciate how valuable this is until they actually go do it. They don’t realize that this could be the best thing they have ever done for themselves.
    “Think Big, Act Small” is going on my list of favorite tips and bits to remember.

    Hi Donna,

    Blogging, as we know, is not a get-rich-quick business. However, while some bloggers realize slow growth, others achieve faster blog growth. Why? As you rightly mentioned, having a blogging plan is a key to meeting your blogging goals. Without a plan, you might be aiming your blows aimlessly in the air without striking anything. Your plan helps you to produce informative content your readers crave consistently. It also includes a viable marketing strategy for promoting your blog for maximum exposure and reach.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Donna,

    I completely agree with what Ryan has considered the point from the blog post “Thinking big and acting small” really a motivational line. Your success depends upon the vision you set in your mind. To achieve that goal perform an activity in a step by steps manner to reach that target.

    Thank you Donna for writing this post.

    Thinking big and acting small is such a powerful piece of advice. Thinking big expands your vision; you aim high by thinking big. But no one succeeds via one quantum leap with big actions. Bloggers take small, simple steps for a while to succeed. Huge success is many small steps bloggers take over years.

    For example, I am in the process of promoting 50,000 plus backlinks pointing to Blogging From Paradise via small, simple retweets, shares on FB and shares on LI. However, the seemingly small actions net me roughly 100-200 more backlinks daily. I have a vision to draw a high number of backlinks to BFP to help everyone. Seeing the numbers increase daily to the tune of 100 plus backlinks feels fun because I am helping folks, myself and I’m not killing myself with hard work, slaving and striving. Big vision. Small actions. We all win as the vision comes into form.
