Update: Why I Blog the Way I Blog: The Method to My Madness



I thought it would be nice to provide a little updated information for those that are new to Dream Big as we have added a quite a few new followers to the blog in the last couple of weeks AND my page strategy has changed a little.

What is Dream Big, Dream Often All About?

I focus our conversations around 4 basic topics, all of which have to do with personal development: living a healthy lifestyle, living an organized/goal oriented life, living debt-free and living a life of charity.  I call these the 4 Pillars of Successful Living.

Along with these 4 topics I believe in and use a 6-step formula for helping me to achieve goals:

  1. determine what it is that you want and state it
  2. determine what you are willing to sacrifice to get what you want,
  3. develop a persistent attitude,
  4. have faith,
  5. develop organized planning and
  6. execute.

Because of this formula I will often discuss desire, developing persistence, having faith developing a plan, executing the plan and successful habits.

What Is the Posting Schedule on Dream Big?

Mondays – A Few of My Random Thoughts

Tuesdays – Healthy Living Update

Wednesdays – Dream Big Original

Thursdays – Blogging Tips, Advice and Blog Strategy

Friday-Sunday  I will post on topics within the niche of personal development.

On the 2nd and 4th weekend of every month I conduct a Meet and Greet


Each night at 6 pm est, I publish my Featured Blogger segment in which I feature 10 bloggers that have left a link to their page or post on my Let Me Share Your Page post.  I share as a way to give back to the blogging community.  This segment replaces my previous practice of reblogging.  I found reblogging had 2 negative impacts on my page: 1. it distracted from my overall message, and 2. it cluttered up people’s inboxes.

I don’t stray from this schedule so you can expect a post each morning at 6pm est.

I hope this helps some of the new folks to understand my blogging strategy.  I believe every blogger needs to have some type of formula that works for them other than “build it and they will come.”

  1. I absolutely agree with those four points…made it a duty to live it. Well-done Dray. Sometimes though it may take a while or more than a while to figure out what we really want. I find that as each day passes…my vision is clearer and am more able to chart a good course for my life.

  2. Wonderful six steps. I think, at least for me, the first two are the most difficult. Especially the second. It’s one thing to make sacrifices for others – when people are important it doesn’t even feel like ‘sacrifice’. I gain far more than I ever give up. But doing that for myself, for my own dreams — that’s a different issue all together.
    I like that you have a schedule on how you blog. For me it’s always a case of whatever comes along. I’d say my life has not given pattern, but that’s, of course, not true. There are daily routines I follow, whether habit or just things that need done for others — Someday maybe I’ll put it all together.
    Thanks again for the six points. There’s a feeling of being grounded, knowing yourself that comes through. I am impressed. Well done.

  5. I don’t know how you keep up but I salute you! I’ve been trying to build content and been lagging on the promotional and blog reading end. I am working on balancing it all! Do you have an article about that? If so, I’d love to read it because I need help. lol
