Interview with Ryan Biddulph
Blogger at Blogging from Paradise
Q1. Please share your Blogging journey with us?
I began blogging over a decade ago but found my stride when I began Blogging From Paradise in 2014. Ultimately, I wanted a fun, freeing way to live because I tired of working jobs for paychecks, trading time for money. Here I am 😊
Q2. What did attract you to write blog on travelling?
I had circled the globe for 3 years prior and knew I loved traveling. Since I loved writing, the 2 seemed like a good match. But I also had to learn how to be an entrepreneur to allow both traveling and writing to join seamlessly. This took a while.
Q3. What kind of hurdles did you face in your blogging journey?
I was heavily attached to outcomes, I could not write skillfully, I had no connections, and I did not know what a blog was. I overcame these obstacles by spending 10,000 plus hours of my life generously creating content, building connections with top bloggers in my niche and opening multiple streams of income.
Q4. What is the importance of SEO for Blog? Can anyone make blog popular without SEO?
SEO plays almost no role in my blogging success. Anyone can succeed without SEO because human beings – not search engines – buy stuff, hire bloggers, build tribes through word of mouth marketing and grow your brand awareness through their loyalty. Google never did any one of these things for me because Google is a thing, not a human being.
Q5. What are the major income sources of any full time Blogger?
Any income source can be major based on the blogger preference, resonance with streams and such. Money and income streams are boring topics to me because the generous service – not the income stream itself – allows you to go pro and to be free.
Q6. How can anyone become a travel blogger without any major investment?
Spend 5,000 to 10,000 hours generously creating content and building friendships with fellow bloggers over 5-10 years of your life, while opening income channels. Invest a few bucks in your domain, hosting and theme. That’s it.
Q7. Tell us about one of the moments which changed your perspective towards life?
When I first landed in Bali in 2011 I felt a feeling of freedom, fun and fascination I never experienced, ever. That was my first international trip and it changed me forever, letting me know I would always be a globe trotter going forward.
Q8. How can any new blogger make his blog hit and profitable in short time?
Impossible. Go rob a bank or get a job if you want to make a profit in a short time 😊
Q9. Which one skill do you like most about yourself?
I enjoy writing about the science of the mind, in terms of blogging and offline life.
