The Man Behind ProBlogger - Darren Rowse
Darren Rowse is a full time Blogger making a living from blogs like Digital Photography School.
Back in 2002 Darren stumbled across a blog for the first time. He didn’t know it at the time but that moment changed his life.
Within hours of finding that blog he had started his own – a personal blog where he explored issues of Pop Culture, Spirituality and Blogging ever since.
As his blogs grew in popularity and have grown from a hobby (some would say an obsession), to a part time job through to a fully fledged business in recent times. In 2004 Darren created ProBlogger.net – a blog about his journey of becoming a full time blogger.
Since that time he’s helped millions of bloggers improve their blogs by publishing thousands of free tips and tutorials.
If you want to read an extended version of Darren’s story he’s written it at Becoming a ProBlogger. You might also like to visit the ProBlogger in the Press page.
