From the desk of Victor Pride
Subject: 59 pages of all killer and no filler
What I did was write down nearly everything I know about blogging.
Then I took those notes, meticulously went over them and re-worded them in the best way I could.
The goal was to help anyone who read it understand how, why and what it takes to create a world class blog that makes the magic word – money.
When I finished writing it I sent it to my book editor who made it look extra fancy with his fancy computer programs.
The result is Spartan Entrepreneur Vol. 1: The Blog Artist’s Handbook.
Most people reading this will already know who Victor Pride is from reading his blog, boldanddetermined.com. Victor started his blog with no previous blogging or technical experience and now is able to live wherever he wants, however he wants. Living a life of choice is a direct result of one choice; Victor Pride chose to be a blog artist.
The Blog Artist's Handbook is not the "How to be Victor Pride" book. It is a concise explanation of how Victor does what he does and how you can implement his techniques and strategies into your own blog.
Great content. It was organized really well, had lots of actionable info, and didn’t have any extraneous bullshit. Nice work. -Kris
I read it yesterday and must say this has to be some of your best work yet. It's pure gold. I thought I knew a lot about becoming a Blog Artist but I was wrong. I appreciate you including the dry technical stuff as well. I didn’t know much about security and many other resources that are in the book. I’ll have to go back into it and re-read and apply much of the info.Its an easy read full of great information that no other blogger’s advice can compete with. Not to mention, the graphics and layout look awesome! I’ll be making a living off of my art very soon! - Scott
The Blog Artist's Handbook covers a lot of territory without being overwhelming. Information is presented in a clear, easy to read, motivational format.
Here's a brief overview of thing covered in the book:
This is a great resource. I’m on my second read-through now. I’m very early on in trying to set up my empire, and this is really going to help me get through the next steps as I try to build an audience. URLs have been a particular difficulty for me so far, so the tip about Impossibility is absolutely priceless. I’ve read half a dozen books about branding, writing, etc. and these 59 pages are the most valuable words I’ve read so far. Thanks for all your work on Bold & Determined and on these resources. -Jonathan
Whether you are a starting from nothing or already have a blog up and running, this is for you if you want to make art and money.
I was on a waiting list and all I can say is what Victor Pride gave me will be a game changer.Great ebook. It opened my eyes to SO MUCH. You could easily charge over $100 for it. -Dylan
Most blogging “experts” leave me feeling uneasy and anxious after reading their work. They always make it seem like the only path to success is to be an internet social butterfly and to spend your days aggressively pushing digital snake oil, concepts that are incredibly off-putting to me. Aside from the obvious benefit of the technical info you’ve provided, your work never fails to clear up any doubts that manage to creep into my head. I can really relate to your anti-scumbag business sense. And best of all, it’s the most effective method in the long run. I especially like the part that compares selling ad space to having someone pay you pennies for the privilege of taking a dump on your painting, haha. Reading that only strengthens my resolve to never mar my blog with ads, unless they’re for my own products. -Nathan
I just read S.E. V1 First, thank you. You streamlined a very tedious research process. I love the no bullshit approach. Very easy to read. I see why you’re successful. You provide tremendous value.You give people hope, hope they can have what you have. Then you make the the tools available to them. I’m in a learning phase and am currently reading everything I can. (Book recommendations welcomed) This has helped me. I am appreciative. See you at the top. Until then… Wish me ‘hard work’ -Brandon
There is no armchair theory here. These are words of experience from a man who has used this approach to attain success. Read it and start applying his advice to your own work immediately.
