Originally published November 22, 2010. Republished as a BlogcastFM Classic on March 8, 2012. I met Matt at BlogWorld this year and immediately took a liking to him.  When he told me a few stories about his blog and the things that have happened to him over the last year, I knew that we had to have him on the podcast as a guest.  I think you'll find his story to be funny and inspirational. Here's some of the highlights:
  • 6-7 Years of Failures that Didn’t Lead Anywhere
  • How Matt Got His Book Deal on Twitter with Just 6 Readers on His Blog
  • Why Matt has Started Blogs that Started and Stopped
  • How to Deal with a Creative Block and Turn Your Day to Day Life into Interesting Content
  • The Trap of Boring Corporate Blogs
  • Why You Should Only Focus on the 10% of Readers Who Resonate with Your Message
  • The Amazing Power of Your First Few Readers
  • The Power of Inventing Rules to Develop Authority
  • How He Got 100,000 Visitors from StumbleUpon
  • Why Matt Has Invested Substantial Amounts of Money is Efforts
  • How to Connect with Editors and Publishers on Twitter
Matt's blog, How To Get A Grip is about focusing on the important stuff. It’s largely a rehashing of common sense, with a couple of practical tips for manning up and getting things done.
