Great interview John. That was great learning how Steve evolved the way he blogged and is transitioning from e-books to the courses/ bootcamp model.
Great point on being different in a crowded niche.
Thanks for the comment Chris.
Steve is a superstar. All the lego images and comic book feel immediately make his site jump out at you. Combine that with long, comprehensive posts and it’s a recipe for success.
Even though I know that being unique is critical, and writing long, comprehensive posts is best, I still have trouble figuring out how to differentiate JetSetCitizen. It sounds simple, but it’s definitely not easy. 🙂
Great interview! I’ve learned an incredible amount about writing, travelling, blogging (and, of course, fitness) from you and Steve over the past two years. Keep doing what you guys do, and maybe I’ll soon make the leap onto the interwebs too.
The first step is a comment, the second is your own blog. 🙂
