Interview with the Man of Inspiration and Paradise Owner: Ryan Biddulph

We are so glad to have us here with Ryan Biddulph, owner of Blogging from Paradise. He has many things to share with us which essentially make him a star and an example for others.

Let’s see how he turned the tides in his favor and what he has to offer to those who are kind of stuck in their lives.

Ryan Biddulph

1. Let me extend a warm welcome to you Ryan. What is that factor which clicked you in the blogging arena at first?

Hi Nisha! Thanks for sharing this wonderful opportunity with me. I was fired. Actually, I was let go from my security guard job 5 years ago and I knew that working online could help me set up my own schedule.

When I figured out how to build a profitable blog I decided to travel, and then, after a few years, Blogging from Paradise was born.

2. Do you mind giving a brief of your life story?

Sure….I was born in NJ, in the USA, and worked a few different jobs before finding out about blogging and prospering online.

After running a pretty successful blog I created Blogging from Paradise, which really took off in record time.

I am free in paradise, living in Bali now, and I want to help other bloggers retire to a life of island hopping through smart blogging.

3. How did you make out that the decision of choosing online profession would pay you good returns in terms of fate and everything else?

I just wanted to be free more than anything else. I wanted to help myself, and help others, and figured that blogging was the way to do it.

I wanted to travel, to become self-fulfilled, to create good things for others and I wished to show that if I could do this, others could do it too.

4. Do you think the way you have designed your life after an initial pause can help others following the same style?

Yes most definitely Nisha. I didn’t know how to blog, or how to run a business. I had no entrepreneurial bones in my body yet here I am, blogging from paradise.

If I could learn how to run a prospering online business from scratch, when I knew only how to check my email, and check espn.com, 5 years ago, anybody who really wants to succeed can live my internet lifestyle.

You gotta want to be free more than you fear doing uncomfortable stuff, but you can do this.

5. When did you first think you want lead a free life like a bird? And of course why you had to think that way?

I saw the potential 5 years ago. I was laid off from my last job and felt free, hanging out at home, enjoying vacation time.

When I learned that I could work at home, I had to try it. I had to keep that taste of freedom going, and hey, here I am 5 years later, except that I’m blogging from Bali not NJ.

6. Do you never feel your way may be surpassed by others in coming years and you may have to start from the scratch all over again?

No I am super confident that I am growing 😉 No more looking back, or failure, here.

7. I see you are a frequent traveler! Could you relate writing with your traveling habits?

Oh yes I do all of the time. Observing is the key. Watching for stories, then tying them in to my blog, and sharing those blogging tips for you, that is the real key to relating travel stories, and blogging.

8. Please share with us some of your bitter experience related to traveling.

Overall, I’d say that most experiences were awesome. I did once lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks when I was traveling through India, but that was about as rough as it got. Even now, I see the immense blessing in these moments because all rough experiences turn out to be gifts if we learn from them.

9. What would be your best advice to youngsters, if you were to comment on achieving success in blogging?

Know why you want to blog. Tie that reason to being free, and you’ll naturally do what it takes to be free, even when obstacles pop up. I’m living in paradise because I’m more in love with being free than I fear doing uncomfortable stuff. It’s that simple.

10. What tools you personally use and find them really helpful?

Not a big tool guy, but I’d say Hootsuite Pro is my fave, with Triberr being another helpful tool. Any tool I choose to use has to align with my lifestyle, and both HSP and Triberr help me to save time and energy while I travel.

11. Your blog smells inspiration everywhere! Who do you think (I mean which type of people) might be undergoing the same experience like you went, before you entered online blogging?

Hmmmm…..honestly Nisha, I don’t know of anybody who’s experienced what I experienced, or who’s taken my path…..just like nobody has taken your journey either. I look to guys like Chris Brogan for inspiration, but I feel we all have a unique story, and so much inspiration within us.

12. Being devoted to lifestyle, I would like to know your greatest finding in life so far!

Be in the moment. Be in the now. Everything is sweeter in the moment. Let go the past and the future. Be married to the moment.

13. What would you plan if you know by some means that you are given a human birth for second time?

Nothing differently, I’d do this the *same exact way* because every thing happens at the perfect time.

14. How do you project yourself 5 years from now?

Blogging from paradise Nisha 😉 More eBooks, more blog posts, and living in some tropical paradise.

15. Please tell us some “must to do things” in life according to you.

Enjoy the ride, and be happy with what you have in the moment….do these things, and you’ll be free.

My Turn

Thank you so very much my Dear Readers. I hope to continue serving you in a better way every time. You live life for once and let’s actually live it. Thanks again!

  1. Hi Nisha and Ryan

    Thanks for inviting Ryan to share his awesome insight about success in blogging.

    This is my first time of hearing about Ryan and his site; Blogging to Paradise. I impressed that Ryan is having fun doing what he loves. His goal was to be free and help people which he successfully he incorporated into his blog. Ryan tips on blogging are spot on.

    Thanks for sharing this great post.

  2. Hi Nisha!

    Wow! I was just reading one of Ryan’s eBooks the other day, which specifically had a section that talked about how his blog commenting led to interviews, and being featured on various blogs. It’s really funny that this post popped up in my Feedly today!

    This interview was great and helped me get to know Ryan a bit more. Ryan and his story are surely inspirational and he’s definitely a guy worth knowing.

    I’ve been a fan of Blogging From Paradise for a while now and the stuff he delivers is definitely top notch. For those who haven’t visited his site before… what are you waiting for?

  3. Hi Ryan, and welcome to Nisha’s blog,

    SO good to see you featured here today and I am glad she shared this post with the ABC (Aha!NOW Blog Community as well!)

    You always amaze me, and we’ve known each other for a long time now, when you had your earlier blog. But you are just on fire with this new blog and I am seeing you ALL over nowadays. Not to mention that you are literally living in paradise – just amazes me how you manage to get so much done all the time! More so, the new ebooks you keep coming up with so often! I was telling Enstine the other day that you were surely born with a keyboard in your hand…lol…

    It’s indeed a pleasure knowing you and yes, being in the moment and being happy is what matters most, which I am sure you and Kelli are really doing. Wish you every success in years to come.

  5. Hi Nisha,
    It’s good to see Ryan on your blog, his story is so motivating, loosing your job and then venturing into blogging, it surely is a hard thing to do as, blogging requires mentainance, and during the early stage of blogging without having an offline job, I guess it really was difficult for him.

    In one way or another every person has a thing to learn from this interview.
    Thanks for sharing. Do have a wonderful day ahead. 🙂

  6. Always great to read about what Ryan’s up to.

    This is the awesomeness of Ryan that in his each interview he offers quite new info about his both personal and professional life.

    A big congrats to you Nisha on publishing interviews in a series of three great bloggers. It shows the power of your networking in blogosphere.

    All the questions you asked are well researched and well crafted and bravo to him how he started by revealing “he is fired” to enhance the interest of the readers.

    Now wherever I read the word paradise the one and only name came into mind is his. This is called branding with creativity to make people remember the brand forever.
