2nd Edition of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Coming Next Week

Posted By Darren Rowse 9th of November 2011 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

Tens of thousands of ProBlogger readers have completed the popular 31 Days to Build a Better Blog challenge, and next week we’re taking it to a new level with the release of the second edition eBook.

31DBBB—the story so far…

  • Back on 30 July 2005, I had a crazy idea: what if I ran a series of posts over the month of August that year that would give ProBlogger readers a little bit of teaching each day and a homework activity to go away and do, each one focused on helping them build a better blog?
  • On the spur of the moment I decided to give it a go, and off the top of my head decided to call it
    “31 Days to Build a Better Blog.”
  • That year, several thousand readers joined the challenge.
  • The experience was so great that I ran it again in 2007, this time with around 5,000 participants.
  • In 2009 we repeated it again with another series of posts. This time, 13,000 readers signed up and at the end of the month readers asked me if I could compile the teaching and exercises into an ebook.
  • The 31 Days to Build a Better Blog ebook was released shortly after, and since that time, around 13,000 copies have sold.

31DBBB Second Edition

It’s been two years since the first edition was released, and while I still get daily feedback that its helping bloggers improve their blogs, I’ve been wanting to give it a refresh with some new tasks, a redesign. and some updating of a little information in the ebook that isn’t quite as relevant today in 2011.

I’m really pleased with this new edition. While there are quite a few days that are based upon those found in the first edition, we’ve included some completely new information this time around and added to what owners of the original have already got.

I’ll fill you in with full details of what’s new next week, and will email owners of the first edition with a discounted offer for those wanting to upgrade.

31DBBB First Edition now unavailable

As a result of the impending release of the second edition, today I’ve taken the first edition of 31 Days to Build a Better Blog off the market. Those of you who have your copy already now officially own a collector’s edition!

Again, I’ll release full details of the second edition, its price, upgrade options, and so on in the coming week, but I wanted to let you know what was going on.

    It’s fair enough to produce books like this BUT why is there no book on “Finding a Niche”?

    This would be a good starting point then I could buy the a above book!

    Make two sales instead of one, makes business sense?
