Thank You for Visiting TheBlogPilot

My name is John Engle… I reside in Canon City, Colorado.


Back in 2010 I started blogging for fun… it was an enjoyable experience, and a way to make connections – in a nutshell, it was a blast.

Fast-forward 7 years – due to life changes and the need to relocate, my blogging world came to a SCREECHING HAULT!

So, there I was, back on the streets in the real world once again, working the dreaded 9 to 5 grind, like 90% of Americans, wondering – “is there something better out there?”

You see – being the committed worker that I am, I got so wrapped up in working my day job that I lost connection with blogging…

After realizing I was getting up there in age, I made the decision to put what I’ve enjoyed for so many years to work for me – and, at the same time, make money doing it.

I was determined to enjoy my passion of blogging full-time – to once again make those connections with other like-minded people, and leave the 9 to 5 world in the rear-view mirror, once and for all – in exchange for FREEDOM.

For so many years I had the itch to be an entrepreneur, to work for myself, but my employee mindset and my fear of failure was out-weighing the entrepreneurial side of me!

I decided, NO MORE – I was going to break through my FEAR and follow my passion to become the Online Entrepreneur I’ve always wanted to be – all while I was working full-time!

Even though retirement was many years off, I figured it was time to follow my dream of working out of my home, at my own pace. To enjoy the FREEDOM that being my own boss provides.

With a deep thirst for Knowledge, clocking countless hours of reading blogging, email marketing and personal development books, along with following and absorbing the plethora of Internet marketing information available from the most popular blogs on the Net, I was determined to explore the many different methods bloggers have used to make money online, following their passion.

Discovering their ‘Why‘ that drives them, and the steps they took to be successful in their own career path.

After many years of research, countless hours of training and the assistance of entrepreneurial influencers, I have found my own journey.

I have made a clear choice to take what I’ve learned and pay it forward – to help the ambitious blogger create a passive income through hard work and dedication!

It is said… if you want to be successful, do what successful people do!

Here I am living the life of my dreams…
