I recently received an email message via LinkedIn to please call Michael Kroll. It has been amazing lately how many phone calls that have been initiated from my social media networks.
I called him and we had an incredible conversation about his future goals and his current passions. It turns out that although we are in different fields of work, we have very similiar passions.
We both love to provide value, have a genuine desire to help people and a passion for writing.
We talked about blogging and the goals that we would like to achieve with our blogs.
A few days later, I saw an announcement from Darren Rowse, author of 31 Days To A Better Blog, and I just had to share what he has going on for the next 6 days.
Here are the details: 3 Bonuses
The 31DBBB workbook is in itself a really useful resource for this time of year. It contains 31 tasks designed specifically to get your blog firing again – but the bonuses extend this. I have had this workbook for almost a year and it is phenomenal! I have mine professionally bound and I use it as a reference often.**The bonuses are also available to those who already have the workbook.**
- A report by the name of 9 Things to Do to Get Your Blog On Track for the New Year – it is a 9 day extension of the 31 Day workbook and contains 9 extra tasks, particularly designed for the new year. This means you have 40 days of exercises to get you going.
- A 55 minute podcast with Leo Babauta from ZenHabits.net – this podcast is rich with tips on how Leo has launched his blogs and leveraged them to sell successful e-books and a best selling book.
- A 45 minute podcast interview with Neil Patel from Quicksprout.com – another practical podcast with Neil on how to drive traffic to blogs as well as tips on personal branding, SEO and more.
PLUS – In addition to this you also get the regular bonus for buying the workbook – an hour long podcast with Darren answering FAQs from buyers of the workbook.
All in all you get a little under 3 hours of previously unreleased and exclusive podcasts as well as the 9 days of exercises to get your blog going in the new year.
My hope is that this bundle will not only give you some inspiration but also some practical tips and first steps to take your blog to the next level.

Whew! I have learned so much from Darren Rowse’s Problogger Challenge. I haven’t focused as much as I would like on this blog during the challenge but I have received so much traffic to my fitness blog as a result of this challenge.
It’s unbelievable that there are 11,000 participants in this blog challenge! I thought it was interesting that Darren put up a poll asking who would be interested in buying a workbook for $10 that would compile the 31 day challenge in one place. That’s an instant income potential of $110,000 in one day! That’s the power of a large subscriber base.
Today’s challenge involved setting up google alerts for your niche. I was excited to know that I already had my google alerts for my fitness, mortgage and real estate niche set up weeks ago. I will focus on promoting another blogger today.
EJ Cooksey is ranked in Technorati’s Top 100 blogs for her Make Money Online with EJ Cooksey blog. I took some time to write her and ask about her success. She has about 5 different blogs and she said that she favorites a lot of blogs, links to a lot of blogs and uses Entrecard. There are so many things that you can do to improve your rankings in the search engines but these are just a few ideas. Congratulations Elizabeth on being in Technorati’s Top 100 blogs!
I highly recommend Darren Rowse’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Workbook. I’ve already professionally bound it and keep it close to me as I write new blog posts.
