  1. I am a new blogger, Thanks for the above useful tips,


  2. Hello Darren,
    Happy New Year 2010, I have missed this forum so many months struggling to improve my blogging experience.
    After taken your 30DC, I managed to improve my 6 months old blog a little – broke the $100 mark every month.

    For the last 1 month, I have been struggling to get my new blog up on google page 1. I could have missed some of the important tips.

    I hope to get some input from you.

  3. Thank you for these great resources!, I went ahead and added them to my rss reader.
    I have setup many blogs for friends using WP and a free template, but I have often asked myself the question what are the advantages of going with a professional custom (paid) template? I came across several blog designer’s websites/ blogs that offer great designs for a reasonable price, but except the obvious (exclusive template designs) I couldn’t find any other reasons to purchase a template as opposed to using a free template.
    Thanks again!.

  4. Thanks Darren, This is a great list. There is something for almost everyone.

  5. Thanks for your this chapter for the newer blogger,i will keep touch with your web and learn much knowledge about this field.

  6. Very good! I had never even heard of Chitika! A lot of good resources in this article. I’m sorry I did not get to read it before I put out my last blogg…which..did not do so well in any way…

  9. lot of good stuff here, thanks. I am trying to build a spiritual content blog and am slowly making progress. I finally broke thru the 1 million alexa rank, so next goal is top 100K. Thanks for all this great advice.

  10. Hi Darren

    I could spend all day reading your blog! I like your style and there’s a lot of good material to get through. All of these articles and your blog tips link page from 1/1/10 are PURE GOLD.

    Keep up the great work!

  11. Hello Darren,

    I have a little question about a tip that is often given regarding domain names: avoid dashes.

    I fully understand that the domain name is not the only / most important thing, and the DPS example / domain name shows that’s feasible to create a very successful website with a long and double dashed domain name, so …

    What is your personal thought on your http://www.photo-talks.com as a domain name for a fresh photography related blog i’m about to start ? (not photoblog though).

    I’m not native english speaking, so I guess photo-talk is more correct ? unfortunately as phototalk.com and phototalks.com were already taken, I picked photo-talks…

    Thanks for all the good blog starting tips !

  12. Hi,BLOG GIANT,you are really an roadmap for bloggers like me.your posts are really amazing.you have a lot of important tips here at problogger that every blogger need to go through!

  13. Darren, thanks for compiling such a list for the beginners. Especially the “Confessions of a Blogger” post is to be read and understood well…

  14. Turning a blog post into something extremely interesting to get comments really isn’t hard at all, and it works well too. Nice list here!

  15. I am new to parenting. My sister went to a better place a 6 months ago and since my nephew doesn’t know his dad, he wanted to stay with me. It wasn’t hard to say, yes. He is family and I love the little guy. I’m in search of every piece of information I can find on the internet about parenting because I want to be the best uncle a kid can have so, thank you for the blog post and now I must move on to the next one.
