Blogging in Brief: Ebooks, Print Books, Conferences and More

Posted By Darren Rowse 25th of January 2013 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

From what I can tell, most bloggers are off to a flying start this year. Lots of great discussions going on on social media, and some interesting plans in the works for many…

Launching an ebook in 2013?

If you answered “yes” to that question, take a look at this post from Shayne, who helps me with both dPS and ProBlogger products.

This post contains some key issues that I think most bloggers probably don’t look at in detail before we launch an ebook. We’re so excited to get our products out there that we could, unwittingly, be undermining their success.

Shayne looks at the issue from a really strategic viewpoint in this post. I hope it helps you!

Blogger in print … and on tour

Congratulations to Matt Kepnes, who’s released a print book through Penguin: How to Travel the World on $50 a Day.

This is another great example of what can happen when you build a strong brand and following online. If it’s something that interests you, take a look at our guides for becoming a print book author:

Not only that, but Matt’s heading off on a book tour of the States during February. So if you’re in a city he’s visiting, head down and say hello—he’s published the tour dates on his blog. And tell him Darren sent you!

Conference planning 2013

We announced this week that this year’s ProBlogger Training Event will be held on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. But we’re not the only ones to have released conference details recently.

  2. This is a great wrap up of everything! I can not believe that the first month is about to be over, this year is going to fly by.

    I really appreciate all the links to these wonderful post! Any other suggestion for more State side conferences?

    Lastly, I never heard of Internet Freedom Day, I am going to have to mark this down on my calendar for next year.

  3. Some good links mixed into the article :)

    If things go well this year, I might just as well start on a e-book!

    An e-book from Internet Dreams, what do you think?

  4. Thanks for including Eat Drink Blog 4 here, Darren. I’m excited to have a very good reason to visit Perth!
