If you don’t know what these two services are, well… “Where have you been?!”
There are Email Service Providers (ESP in short). You need them to build an email list and then send emails to hundreds or thousands of subscribers at once.
How much time do you take to actually publish a blog post after having finished the writing?
I used to take HOURS for this simple task.
And do you know what’s even worse?
When I started Become A Top Performer, I sure wasn’t one.
In fact, I didn’t even know what it meant.
But I was interested in becoming one.
I wanted to write articles to discover what it meant to be a top performer, and then how to become one.
While finding an answer to what is a top performer wasn’t easy, I eventually found a simple one:
Despite reading all writing tips possible, I’ve been failing time and time again at writing 1000 words a day.
And even after having a course teaching exactly that… I still wasn’t doing it consistently.
For a long time, I felt really guilty about it.
It felt like I was saying: “Do what I say, not what I do”.
I had good reasons though.
“I don’t think you’re ready. When you are, you will know! Come back then!”

The next day, I joined.
Two years and a half later, I quit my job to become a full-time entrepreneur.
Everything was ready… except me.
My heart was racing, my hands were shaking, and my eyes fixed on the small clock at the bottom of the screen.
It was almost time.
“Are you there?”
I called him.
I published 6 articles in two years…
I guess that makes me a terrible blogger.
One could argue that I also published a lot of guest posts. But… Not so many, actually.
I am a terrible blogger.
And now, things are going to change.
A while ago, I wrote a blog post called “The Ultimate Guide to Never Run Out of Blog Post Ideas”.
If you haven’t read it, or if it was a long time ago, take some time to skim through it.
Then, download the cheat sheet for endless blog post ideas, before coming back here.
I’ll wait for you!
In this post, I wrote the best strategies that I used to find new blog post ideas. Every time I found myself not knowing what to write about, I relied on one of those strategies.
It was my intention to transform the guide into a big case study where I would show the strategies in application to find dozens of blog post ideas. But I didn't do it...
