Each step gives you a practical exercise to go away and DO to help get your blog going in the right direction. Effectively it turns the 31 day workbook into a 40 day one!

Bonus #2: Podcast with Leo Babauta from Zen Habits

Leo BabautaRegular readers of ProBlogger will know the wisdom and insight of Leo from Zen Habits. He’s grow his blog Zen Habits from nothing to being one of the most read self help blogs in the blogosphere in just a couple of years. He’s released a book (The Power of Less) off the back of his blog and has also since launched a number of other successful blogs, profitable e-books and other products off the back of his blog.

This 55 minute podcast interview with Leo goes through his history of blogging and explores much of his philosophy behind what he does including:

  • his recent decisions to turn off comments on his blog
  • how he comes up with ideas to write about
  • his tips for launching e-books
  • his decision to remove all but one ad on his blog
  • tips on growing traffic and subscribers

There’s lots of good practical advice in this podcast – I came away from it with loads of ideas and inspiration myself and am sure many will benefit from it.

Bonus #3: Podcast with Neil Patel from QuickSprout

  1. Thank you Darren.

    I was looking forward for this.


  2. Darren,

    I got the book through Sitepoint. WIll they be forwarding the links to these free goods?


  3. Well, this was a nice little surprise in my e-mail.
    31DBB was an awesome read, I still reference it when I am stumped for post ideas (purchased during the release), then I get the e-mail for these new bonuses.

    I don’t read your blog as often as I should, but always a pleasure to do so.

  4. I will take a note of it first. Great deal. I will consider to buy it for my next online strategy.

  5. Out of the last 10-12 posts here at ProBlogger, there has been very little new material offered. Lots of regurgitation, lots of self-promos, and some blogger backscratching…

    There was a story about surveys the other day. And on the 3rd there was the “F it” story. Those were new, insightful and helpful.

    • Jeffry – it’s been one of those months where I’ve had a lot on and have been launching some new stuff. Apologies if you feel things have been a bit off track but I’m working on some great new blog posts for the blog that are anything but self promotional. Thanks for the feedback.

  6. Just wanted to say I bought 31 Days to Build a Better Blog last year, and it was one of my best buys of 2009.

    I highly recommend it for any blogger who is hoping to increase his or her readership.

  7. Hi Darren,

    Just wish to say thank you for the 3 bonuses.

    Happy Blogging!

  8. This is absolutely great start for the new year, I like Neil Patel’s work so this should be interesting!

  9. This looks very useful. I am definitely going to look into this once my Adsense check comes in later this month. 2010 is going to be the year I get my blog in the spotlight.

  10. I agree this was one of the best purchases I ever made when I decided to start my blog. Got the bonuses today! Thanks a bunch!

  11. I love how many people you have got promoting this offer for you. Would it be fair to say that a lot of them are purchasers of the ebook as well?

  12. Nice Deal. I am surely going to buy this. Hopefully this will help my blogging.

    I am looking forward to learning great things from you.

  13. This is great! I recently bought the e-book to help improve my site and I’ve loved it! Every day is a great assignment to improve the site. I’m totally stoked that purchase also brings additional goodies :)

  14. Esther Leder says: 01/13/2010 at 9:57 am

    Hallo Darren,
    thanks for offering! I’m looking forward to use it soon!

    Yours sincerly

    Esther Leder

  15. This is absolutely great book. I’m not surprised by the number of people you have got promoting this offer for you.

  16. I already bought through Sitepoint, and it was a great buy, so if any of you out there are skeptical, it’s definitely worth buying. You will learn a lot from this e-book. :-)

  17. I bought this ebook a few days ago as well. So far I find the information quite useful, and not just for a blog; but things like the elevator pitch are good for any type of website/business.

    I recall seeing a point somewhere in the ordering process about it being not for an absolute beginner. I think it will be easier to apply some of the recommendations after you’ve established something of a blog.

  18. That is awesome, I loved your series when it was online. Bit of a rush though. The book and these extras is a no brainer for a great kick in the proverbial to get that ole blog launched into the interwebs.

  19. For Chinese users, too expensive

  20. Great and thanks for the information. I need that book :)

  21. I am glad I am getting it know instead of 2 months ago! I like bonuses.

  22. I’d have to agree! Considering it is cheaper than most ebooks you will be offered and sure to contain much more value!

  23. Hi Darren

    As usual, you’re extremely generous. Thanks for introducing great people like Neil Patel, Leo And Zen. I am a newbie. I want everyone to visit my blog. I hope everyone who reads pro blogger is listening as I know this is one of the greatest places on earth for getting intellectual traffic.

    Please help my blog and me to grow with each passing day!


  24. Your book is absolutely help to create niche blog. But I have to analyze before deal

  25. I admit that I haven’t completely followed through with all the steps in the workbook, but have absolutely loved the steps that I have applied. It’s time for me to finish all the steps and experience the full impact.

    Although I’ve only applied a portion of the workbook it’s already been worth way more than the small wise investment that I made.

    The two audio bonuses are absolutely awesome! I listened to them during my workouts and picked up some very valuable tips.

    It sure sounds like it’s going to be a ROCK’n year at ProBlogger


  26. Based on recommendations alone, this book is something I really need.

    Hey, Darren, would it be okay if I ask another blogger friend to shoulder half of the price of your book with me and two of us used it for our blogs?

    • HP Toner Blogger – the book is really designed for personal use so of course I’d prefer one copy per person – but I guess there’s nothing really stopping you from sharing it with a friend. I’ll leave that one up to you :-)

      thanks for your interest.

  27. Some of the steps in the book seem a little time consuming, but worth it overall if you really want to build your blog. I was thrilled at some of the ideas because they were actually fun to do!

  28. Hi Daren,

    I tried couple of times to purchase this book through your site but my credit card rejucted my credit cards on each occasions. Whats going on. I guess you prefer paypal only. I am not a subscriber to it.
    I will order my copy when your site accepts my credit or debit card. I am an old fashion guy. You have to bear with me. It takes time for me to adjust to innovations and new fads.
    Until then I will continue to endeavor to learn whatever I could piece meal on line.

    Indigent novice.

  29. Well I bought it! Darren just made it sound too good and I had to try it.

    So far I’ve only read the first task and starting working on it. But it looks promising, I’m already feeling impressed.

    The bonus material is great, but the book alone is worth the money, and I’ve barely read any of it!

    No, Darren didn’t pay me to praise his book, I just like his style I guess.

    Thanks for the bonus stuff too!

  30. I have to agree with jeffry pilcher as Bloggers we need some content that will inspire us a little more and not be just reading self promotional Blog Posts

  31. good book, got to grab a copy tomorrow.

  32. for me it’s too expensive

  33. I looks like you got it all figure out in this industry.

  34. You really out done yourself! I’m so new to this stuff, you make it so newbie like myself can easly wrap their heads around it, thanks!

  35. I have not found any success with blogging yet, So I think i will try it to see if its a good idea to start a blog

  36. I have full confidence with this product. Thanks a lot

  37. Looks like a great deal. I will be ordering next Tuesday.

  38. Ordered this last night (UK time) and nothing has come through via email – did you guys got your delivered instantly or did you have to wait a while?

    I’m planning on spending my lazy Sunday picking up some tips for my blogs, they aren’t getting enough attention at the moment and I need some inspiration to get back on track :)


  39. Hello from a new customer, Just bought your book to improve on my blogging skills! Looking forward to putting it all into practice.

  40. I already purchased last night, and now I’m still struggling with day 2 task.

    However after I figured out the table of content of this workbook, I get my confidence to (re)build my old blog for better blogging. And I committed to accomplish all that daily tasks mentioned in this workbook for better blogging.

    Thanks, Darren!

  41. timothy says: 01/19/2010 at 2:42 am

    Briefly going through the workbook and all i can say is you really put on effort to create a blogger to be as successful as you do. Thanks for the e-books and truthfully i think you are selling a really low price

  42. this information looks promising as i too have a fairly new blog. Thanks for the information!

  43. Awesome ideas really… I’m specially interested in the podcasting one.

    How could turning off your comments get your better results… now, there’s something I’d like to know

    Have a great one

  44. OK, obviously there is lots of praise; and for good reason.
    I just bought the book, slammed through the whole thing in about 45 minutes. It’s brilliant! No seriously.

    Hands down one of the most well thought out courses I’ve purchased in the last 6 months. (no I’m not paid) (yes, I am a real customer)

    The daily outline is concise and explains just enough detail to understand what you need to do, as well why you are doing it.

    There is a downside however. Here it is:
    Nowhere, at least that I could find, does the book spend any significant time on monetization.

    Great info on scheduling and the actual process of content creation, but show me the money!

    That is my only beef with the material. I can’t lie, I’m this for the money, so my expectations were to see more focus (which there is practically none) on effective ad placement, what type of advertising works best, etc., etc.

    And please, all you “mindset” people out there, please don’t tell me I need a mindset adjustment or something and I need to focus on the principles taught in the material. If I wanted self help I would bought a Tony Robbins course.

    Again, don’t get me wrong – I really really like the material THAT IS included in the book. I just feel like a crucial component was left out – i.e. “make money”

    But other than that it’s worth the $20 bones.

    • Thanks for the feedback Zak – you’re right though, there’s no monetization in this book, it’s not really the focus of this one. Instead it was about tackling the problems that I hear bloggers facing of finding things to write about and generating traffic – foundational stuff which helps build a good blog which in turn helps profit. There will be more resources on monetization down the track but in the mean time the ProBlogger Book does introduce that topic.

  45. Wow, looks like a great offer Darren. I will place my order soon.

  46. Have just recently re-subscribed to the 31DBBB. Started last year but was just a beginner at the whole blogging thing. I am doing day 2 today. Have you ever wondered why it is challenging to make those New Years Resolutions stick? Check out my blog – 7 Reasons to Change Only One Habit at a Time.

    If you want to be successful in changing habits it takes some planning and strategy. Good luck with this

  47. Going thru a bit of a burnout, listening to the podcasts really got me back into the groove of my niche blog. Especially Zen Habits one. His Relaxed approach to somethings was what got me thinking, same as David Risleys line of Don’t worry be crappy, know when good is good enough.
    Thanks for the bonuses Darren.

  48. Thanks Darren, this is my first visit to Problogger and after browsing through the site i knew i was going to be a regular reader, great content and i’m sure i’m not the first to say this though. you sparked up some useful ideas for me as a blogger especially in the make money online field.

  49. Its good to see some good people keeping their site up, one of my other favorite sites quit working the other day for no appearant reason
