Feature Content Area Added to

Posted By Darren Rowse 23rd of December 2009 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

This is just a short note to update readers on – the ProBlogger Community area.

In the last 24 hours I’ve added a new area to the forum area where I’ll be releasing monthly ‘featured content’.

Each month I’ll be releasing a podcast interview with a successful blogger – looking at how they got started, how they got their break, how they keep creating compelling content, how they monetize their blog and more.

Each of the interviewees will be given a membership of and invited to come and interact with our readers in the weeks following the podcast release.

200912221127.jpgThe first interview is now posted – it’s with Gala Darling from Icing.

Gala has built her blog and associated freelance writing into a business over the last couple of years. In the interview we cover all of the topics mentioned above plus we look at a new monthly podcast that she’s successfully started as a way to monetize her blog.

This interview is a little over 30 minutes – others will be around this length/depth and longer.

Future interviews will be with a variety of bloggers from different niches and with different areas of expertise. is a paid subscription area and currently has around 2300 paid up members from a large variety of niches and levels. Join us here.

PS: Members also currently receive 50% off the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Workbook.

  • Thanks Darren. This is a good idea which will be very helpful to new bloggers. Am now going to subscribe to forum. I look forward to your featured content.

    Thanks a lot

  • I’m not a member of forum.But it seems that these interviews will be very interesting.

  • Thanks a lot Darren, this is very helpful for all of us, but do we have to pay anything extra for this if yes please do tell me.

  • Outstanding! Can’t wait to read it. It is so motivating and helpful to read about other successful bloggers. Thank you!

  • Wonderful idea, Featured section is one of my favorite stuff :)

  • Great idea – I’ve been a member of since day one and I absolutely loving it! Looking forward to the interviews Darren!

  • This is what called “Christmas Bonanza.” We will be waiting for viewing all the podcast made by you.

  • Very cool. I’m looking forward to seeing this one and seeing the ones in the future. I think that this will be a terrific asset to the site.

  • Cool idea Darren. This means more bloggers will have the opportunity of easily showing their faces here. More exposure for them, more connection for you, more content for us. Awesome. :)

  • I like it content is king imo.

  • Although I don’t have access to the forum it looks like it should be a fascinating interview, to say the least. :)

  • Thanks, I really love videos about blogging. It seems that people get more involved in their videos, and it’s certainly fun to actually see and hear a real person.

    I’ve always enjoy case studies as well, if you could call these that. Taking a look at how a successful person did it from another successful persons eyes seems to have great benefits, at least me.

    I’m joining community soon. Another great reason to do so.

  • Thanks Darren. I’m not a member of forum, yet. This is a wonderful idea which will be very helpful to new bloggers.

  • I am not a member yet. But I am not qualified either for the featured content. I will ! someday!

  • I’m not a member of forum yet.But it seems that you make a good move

  • I’m a member and I must say I loved the new feature content area.

    Would advice everyone to sign up.

  • Extremely new to blogging (first post on Problogger) and just looking to get peoples advice on the paid subscription at Problogger. As the benefits especially the new interviews sound very interesting, but as I am a bit tight on money wanted to no how beneficial they would be to me and my blog?

  • Constantly I am reading about ways people have working to create success. There is no possible way to get to point F from point A if you have no examples of the steps in between. Hopefully we will hear not only of their successes but also the failures and roadblocks that they had to face and overcome to get where they are today. This is be great for newbies, like me, and the more experienced also. Looks like I need to invest in a membership. I am thoroughly excited.

  • Haven’t checked out this new area yet but sounds really interesting. Another reason for me to spend hours on your blog when I should be spending the time on my own site. Seriously though, I continue to find this blog really helpful so thanks for the great content.

  • those interviews seems to be very interesting, will try to take part in your forum this weekends

  • I have to say that this is most visited sites. Great job moderating. And interesting articles. Rarely does a blog cause me to tell my friends about it. I hope everyone enjoys the holidays.

  • That’s good idea.

  • It was a nice post you wrote, keep updating your blog, that’s nice.
