**Another useful yet entertaining guest post from Ryan Biddulph**

The other day I was walking down Central Park West. Some of the wealthiest real estate on earth.

One block from where we are house sitting lays the San Remo. Tiger Woods, Steve Spielberg and a whole array of celebs have lived there. Or may still live there. Demi Moore just sold her triplex in this building for the stars for $45 million last month.

Yet when I walked in front of this luxury hideaway – spying a sick Lamborghini parked out front – I stepped in gum. Darn. Sticky gum too.

Annoyed as heck, I forgot all about being in one of the wealthiest zip codes on earth because that silly, annoying, agitating moment forced me to focus on the mindless nitwit who spit out their gum on the sidewalk.

I hope it wasn’t Steve Martin. (more…)

Here’s who we chronicle on this episode of The Blog Chronicles

She’s a savvy business owner living in greater London, England.

Before becoming a full-time blogger, she was working as a training manager for some big name clients like television personality Gordon Ramsay and Chef Jamie Oliver.

When her daughter was born, her employer wouldn’t let her go part time, so this future blogger knew something had to change.

Today she is a highly sought after digital marketing consultant. What she does is help businesses with their digital marketing and social media. And she is a frequent speaker at social media conferences like Social Media Marketing World.

And listen to this: Forbes has recognized my next guest today by listing her in the top 20 of women social influencers. And Oracle gave her the title of “Social Influencer of Europe.”

In this interview, Lilach talks about where she started as a blogger, why she chose to work for herself from home instead of her corporate trainer job, and we ask her about some of her blogging tips in the second half of our conversation. (more…)

My name is Ryan Biddulph.

I am addicted to leveling up.

Sometimes I write 25 guest posts per week.

Other times I write 10 blog comments daily. REALLY long blog comments.

I don’t accomplish these things to brag about my volume of work. I don’t write this much because I feel this is what it takes to succeed. That is hogwash.

I share because I care. About you.

I want you to erase your blogging struggles quickly.

I do stuff that may seem supernatural to most bloggers by intending to master the concept I will share in this post. (more…)
