ProBlogger: Buy a Copy of Darren’s Book!

Having started my own book quite some time ago, I know how difficult it is to keep up a blog and organize all that I’ve learned about blogging and social media into a single, coherent publication.

It appears that Darren Rowse of Problogger has done just that, though. I’ve watched Darren’s blog take off and you can see the persistence and clarity of vision that Darren has had evolve into a fantastic resource for bloggers. Problogger is definitely on my ‘must-read’ list of feeds and it lacks all the fanfare and bragging of Shoemoney and John Chow (much love to those guys, though… I read their blogs, too!).

Here’s an overview of the book from Amazon:

Blogging has become a popular and fascinating pastime for many, but more and more bloggers are finding it can also be an excellent source of direct or indirect income. Although the barriers to starting a blog are low, without expert guidance it is easy to get frustrated when success doesn’t match expectations. Written by the creator of the world’s #1 resource for making money with blogs, ProBlogger takes the reader from absolute beginner to earning money from or as a result of blogging. Through step by step practical lessons the reader will choose a blog topic, analyze the market, set up a blog, promote it and earn revenue.

Congratulations to Darren and Chris on this new chapter in Problogger’s history! It’s on my Wish List!

    Douglas, thanks so much for mentioning the ProBlogger book. It was really great working with Darren and Chris, and now that the book is on the way things are really getting exciting.

    So, what kind of book are you writing?

      Hi Chris,

      I’ve got about a 40 – 50 page book started on how to implement a blog using best practices for search engine placement, readability, and strategy. I’ve not touched it in a while to be honest!
