What Can Golfer Bubba Watson Teach You?
Actually Bubba can teach you a lot, but today I’ll share how he can help you be a better blogger.
Oh and yes his name really is…Bubba
In golf Bubba Watson is the abnormal golfer, on paper he should not be as good as he is, he should not be winning tournaments.
Well, Bubba does things completely different than any other golfer…
He has never taken golf lessons.
He doesn’t have a coach.
He doesn’t tweak his swing..ever.
He doesn’t have any fancy golf psychologist by his side.
He does MANY things that he knows he shouldn’t.
YET, he is a pro golfer and a damn good one. He just Won the Masters golf tournament over the weekend.
If you don’t know anything about golf, then let’s just say Bubba just won the Super Bowl!
Ok let me say this, I am no golf nerd, well unless it’s mini golf, then I tear shit up
The closest I have been to a golf course was a few years back with my brother and cousins (all wanna-be golf stars) I was bored so I took the golf cart 4-wheeling and flipped it…Ooops! Let’s just say my brother wasn’t happy and never invited me golfing again… haha good time’s.
But for me, an Inspirational story motivates me no matter where it comes from.
And Bubba’s story can help you be a better blogger.
When you start blogging or even when you have been blogging for a long time, there are always people telling you this and that.
You have to do it this way if you want your blog to succeed.
This is the best way to succeed as a blogger.
Now fundamentally this is great information and will help you BUT. the problem is, people start to think it is the ONLY way to succeed.
Have you noticed how so many blogs look the same? have the same design or layout?
That’s because they copy a successful bloggers blog and advice to a T thinking it is the only way to have a successful blog.
The problem is, there are so many ways to build a successful blog, that to try or believe there is only one way is crazy.
Have you heard these before?
You need to write great content – Not true, good content will work fine if you know how to promote the hell out of that new post.
You must use social media – Not true, you can do fine without SM. I wouldn’t recommend it, but it can be done.
You must post numerous times a week – Not true, two good posts a week promoted correctly will bring you a nice stream of traffic all week.
You must write for SEO – Not true, there are many many blogs that kill it without the need of SEO traffic.
You must have great design – I agree with this, but again not the only way. I see some messy jacked up blogs out there that are doing very well despite their bad design.
All these are good solid fundamental things you can do to build a successful blog, but they are not the only way!
Take Bubbas story.
He does the complete opposite of what almost all golfers believe is the way to be a great golfer, yet he is killing it.
Do you know why Bubba Watson is so good?
He works hard at what he does and he works it hard every day!
That right there is the same exact reason you will either build a successful blog or you won’t. So when someone tells you what you’re doing won’t work..just ignore it and keep going.
Hard work and perseverance will beat out knowledge every time.
