The SECRET Of Becoming A Top Blogger?

By Mary Jaksch

As you may have noticed, Leo Babauta and I are very much anti hype. So this is an unlikely subject line from us, right?  Well, we’re actually so anti hype that we’ve never told you about the secret work that Leo and I are hugely proud of. So, today we’re going to break our silence.

This is what happened…

A couple of days ago I was on the phone to my son, Sebastian, and read aloud some of the  mind-blowing testimonials from members of the A-List Blogger Club that Leo Babauta and I run.

“Tell me,” Sebastian broke in, “who knows about the A-List Blogger Club?”

“Well, just our Club members – and previous  participants of A-List Blog Bootcamps – of whom most are now Club members…”

“WHAT?” Sebastian screamed down the phone. “Nobody else KNOWS about it?!”

“Well, no…we’re…em…ah… we don’t usually — well, er, we don’t tend to talk much about it…”

“Ok, Mum,  so let me get this straight. This is something that Leo Babauta and you are hugely proud of, and members rave about – and you keep it a SECRET??”


I somehow hadn’t considered that an anti-marketing stance can somehow harm others. I mean, if you don’t tell people about something like this, you effectively close off opportunities. It’s worth thinking about, because you too may be withholding something wonderful. just because you hate marketing.

Check out what Leo Babauta thinks about the A-List Blogger Club:

The Club has evolved into something more than I’d dared to hope for: a place not only where I can share what I’ve learned with people, where they can continue to grow as bloggers, but where amazing bloggers help build each other up, teach and learn from the group, and evolve faster than I would have thought possible. The Club is the place where some truly brilliant bloggers have come into their own, and are now helping others to do the same.

I mean, to keep something like this secret is really crazy, right?

So I talked with Leo and he’s agreed to let you into the secret place where we train bloggers …We’re going to open the door for you that we usually keep so very, very private. But we’re opening it just for FOUR days…

Until midnight on Thursday, 15 April, you can join our private A-List Blogger Club. (Entry is normally reserved for those who have completed an A-List Blogging Bootcamp.)

Here’s Barrie Davenport from Live Bold and Bloom says: (Barrie wrote a lovely guest post for Write to Done last week).

What a brilliant idea to create a club for all of us newbie bloggers who are hungry for more! Your A List Blogger Club has been a tremendous support, not only because of the amazing and useful info Mary and Leo send, but also because of the connections and exposure it provides to other great bloggers.It is such a supportive community of like-minded people, and it is so fun to have new friends all over the world. I love the monthly webinars with Leo and the regular updates Mary sends to us. Every bit of it is wildly relevant and saves enormous amounts of research time. I can’t thank you enough for creating this club. Can I be a lifetime member??

And here’s Arvind Devalia from Make it Happen

I really enjoy being a member of the A-List Blogger Club, not only for all its useful information and world class coaching, but also for the unbelievable camaraderie amongst the club members and the international connections I have made. I have made new friends around the world and it feels like we are sharing an amazing journey together – not just with our blogs, but in our own personal development as well.
