5 Blogging Lessons I Have Learned from Becoming a Runner

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


I just ran 10 miles.

I’d like to say, no sweat, but water poured off me not unlike the drowning deluges we experienced when living in the remote jungles of Costa Rica.

Make no mistake about it; even though I sweated like a fat pig, the run was easy for me. Super easy. I nose-breathed for the entire 10 miles. No huffing. No puffing.

I could have easily done another 2-4 miles.

But I learned that being pulled by inspiration and fun and *not* pushing myself is the secret to my stunning progress after only 3 months of training.

Running Ryan learned some hyper helpful blogging lessons from his running sessions too (bonus lesson; blog about yourself in the 3rd person only if an opportunity for alliteration arises). Continue reading…

**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. Continue reading…

1 Freeing Blogging Concept that Erases Your Struggles Stupid Quickly

My name is Ryan Biddulph.

I am addicted to leveling up.

Sometimes I write 25 guest posts per week.

I share because I care. About you.

How to start a blog

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

Hellish hosting.

Most of us bloggers have been there at one time or another.

At least the cheapskates have.

Or, the former cheapskates.

I learned a painful but valuable lesson many moons ago. Because I clung to a bad hosting package like a baby clings to its rattle. For way too long.

Things only started to take off with my old and new blog after I ditched my old hosting solution to upgrade to a premium, reliable hosting company.

I never looked back.

If you are having severe problems with your blog up time and speed see if you are clinging to any of these common objections to upgrading your web hosting. Continue reading…

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