How Spiderman Helps You Go from Small Fry to Big Fish Blogger

Who’d have thunk Uncle Ben and Voltaire would be connected?


Even better?


Uncle Ben’s immortal advice in the “Spiderman” movie – originally attributed to Voltaire – helps you make the transition from amateur blogger to established pro blogger.


Here’s how….

The Quote


Uncle Ben offers Spiderman (Peter Parker) this talisman of wisdom:


“With great power comes great responsibility.”


Peter develops superhuman abilities after being bitten by a radioactive spider.


He learned to take on greater responsibility for the good of humanity as his powers grew.


I have seen spiders bigger than small dinner plates in remote Costa Rican jungles. Thank goodness I avoided being bitten by these chaps.


But I am awake at 12:04 AM writing this guest post for the rocking Mostly Blogging community.


I learned a while back that Uncle Ben’s wisdom works in a few ways: as you take on greater responsibility, you gain greater power and as you gain greater power, you take on greater responsibility.

How to have one of the top blogs


Where Your Attention and Energy Goes, Grows


If you give loving attention and most of your energy daily to blogging, you will develop great power, clout, and influence in your niche because where your attention and energy goes, grows.


Giving loving attention and most of your energy to blogging is taking on greater responsibility.


I wrote 5 guest posts today. Writing 5 guest posts in one day is taking on a hefty amount of responsibility. I love what I do. But I also move out of my comfort zone persistently, facing fears and doing more from love as I take on greater responsibility.


What comes with taking on greater responsibility, when tasks are aligned with freedom, love, and fun?


Greater power.


Or, articles like this:


12 Successful Bloggers Crushing it in 2018


Most would agree; 11 genuine world famous bloggers grace the list. Gary Vee and Tim Ferriss are bonafide superstar icons. But the first guy listed is a Cheshire Cat Smiling clown mugging it up from the beaches of Phuket who’s pulled the wool over people’s eyes.


Basically, I enjoy helping people build successful blogs. I devoted a great deal of my life to helping people from a high energy, loving space. So greater power, influence, and clout flowed my way, to where I am mentioned in the same breath with some of these genuinely iconic, world famous superstars.


But as my power expands, I take on greater responsibility. This means more play. Not more work. More responsibility is not a negative thing, even though folks who don’t like their jobs or businesses may lead you to believe this totally untrue idea.


Note: I love playing for hours daily – aka taking on greater responsibility – but this also means writing your 5th blog post at midnight when a part of you really wants to go to sleep, sometimes.


This means giving much of your life to blogging before you’re making a dime.


This means blogging with integrity, from a genuine energy, persistently, even when you’re tempted to take shortcuts to make a quick buck.


But this also means making the slow, steady and empowered transition from small fry to big fish blogger.


All because you decided to give much of your life to blogging.


Giving to Give Some More


Gary Vee mentions working 16 hour days.


Where his attention and energy goes, grows.


He spends most hours building powerful, 1 to 1 bonds with people. That’s how you build an empire; one friend, one human being, at a time.


With great power comes great responsibility.


This means as he becomes world successful and world-renowned, he receives the opportunity to help even more folks through greater scaling; or, to take on greater responsibility, commensurate with his power.


10 years ago I received 3 visitors daily to my blog.


10 years later I have been featured on Richard Branson’s Virgin blog, Forbes, Fox News, and Entrepreneurs as an island hopping pro blogger. I also get more than 3 visitors a day on Blogging From Paradise. Most days, at least. All depends on when the bribe money hits.


What happened during those 10 years?


I struggled for a while but eventually decided to take on much greater responsibility, blogging-wise, to help more folks.


I gained more power aka influence aka clout aka worldly success.


Which leveled up my responsibility levels.


I transitioned from blogging small fry to more of a blogging big fish by taking on greater responsibility which meant giving much of my life to blogging.


Blogging Examples of Taking on Greater Responsibility


Taking on greater responsibility does not mean working harder or longer. Working harder or longer is the jackass way of trying to succeed with blogging; no mindfulness, no energy management, no effectiveness here.


Being more responsible means progressively leveraging your presence through scaling so the 8 to 10 to 14 hours or more you put into blogging daily reach a larger and larger audience, all while you blog predominantly from an energy of love and abundance, not fear and scarcity.


Exhibit A: I’m writing this post on Janice’s rocking blog because it gives me an opportunity to help a huge, loyal audience with their blogs.


I have a wee bit of influence and decent writing skills (power) so I take on greater responsibility (following my passion and leveraging my presence to help folks).


That’s how to go from unknown blogger to well-known blogger; take on greater responsibility to gain greater power. As you gain greater power, you gain more responsibility and become an even bigger blogging big fish.




The first step is to buy your domain and hosting. Responsible bloggers invest in their blogs to convey a professional image to readers.

The next step is to follow 1-3 mentors in the blogging tips niche to learn how to blog intelligently and effectively.


Before you teach people how to be responsible, successful bloggers you must take on the responsibility of spending months learning how to do blogging right.


Follow blogging leaders like:



The next step to taking on greater blogging responsibility is to practice your writing. Open a Word document. Write 500 words daily on any topic. Trash the document when you are done.


Following this habit allows you to blog with clarity and confidence.


Then you spend hours every day creating and connecting. Be responsible by creating helpful content and connecting with top bloggers by commenting on their blog and promoting them.


If you follow these steps for months, then years, working 5-7 days weekly, you will gain your blogging power. But it’s not the time you put in; it’s the devotion of much of your life to having fun helping people over years.


Where your attention and energy goes, grows.


Be responsible now.


Gain your blogging power as a force for good.


Embrace the greater responsibility that flows your way.


Responsibility is a gift to be celebrated, not a worrisome burden.

    Wow,thanks a lot. This post made copy notes.I am not a blogger as such.But,several of the points you mentioned seem to be applicable to more than blogging. I am more into internet marketing and generating commissions for example. I really like the idea that taking on greater responsibility may lead to greater power. It is encouraging to think that going for more may give the ability to take on more, God willing.

    Great post Ryan and Janice,

    Everything you said here is the pure truth, and I couldn’t have agreed more. The truth is that blogging and internet marketing, just like every other business, is not a child play, and it’s also not for the faint hearted.

    It requires a lot of dedication, consistency, will power, and discipline to build a very successful blog, and unfortunately, this is something most people do not have.

    They often assume that blogging is something you can start today, create and publish a few posts, and start seeing the money the next day. But it doesn’t happen that way. I mean, if it’s that simple, won’t everyone be doing it?

    And of cause, I couldn’t have agreed more to what you said here “as you take on greater responsibility, you gain greater power and as you gain greater power, you take on greater responsibility.” Blogging is a step by step game. You learn, you practice, you move forward, and you keep learning and taking action and with time, everything will start working out for you the best.

    You also need to master the acting of writing great content as you said. This is because your content will to a large extent, determine how far you’ll go.
