Get Your Own Copy of the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog WorkBook

Join over 14,000 other bloggers and Give your Blog a Kick Start with this 31 Day Challenge.

31dbbb2.pngRegular readers of ProBlogger are familiar with the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog project that we ran here recently.

The concept was simple: bloggers set aside 31 days to be intentional about improving their blogs.

Each day for 31 days readers were presented with a daily task and teaching to give them concrete ways to take their blogs to the next level – the goal being more readers, higher quality content, deeper reader engagement and higher levels of creativity and energy for the blogger.

Challenges included writing tasks, promotion techniques, methods to deepen reader engagement, creating thinking exercises, ideas for breaking through bloggers block and much more.

Today I’m releasing a Workbook that puts a fully updated version of 31 Day Challenge in your hands

If you already know about it and want a copy now – you can buy it now here.

Why a Workbook?

Over 14,000 bloggers have completed the challenge and the feedback was fantastic.

Bloggers who’ve taken the tasks seriously are reporting increases in traffic, greater reader engagement, fresh inspiration for posts and a greater sense of where their blog is headed.

However two common requests came from participants repeatedly:

  • 1. People wanted to do the challenge at their own pace (some found daily tasks too fast, some too slow).
  • 2. People wanted all the content in the one place (so they could keep it somewhere handy and dip into it again and again over time).

As a result I decided to put together a downloadable workbook version of the challenge.

The work book is professionally edited – contains new content, unique to the workbook and it is available to purchase today in two ways.

What You Receive with the Workbook

The 31 Days to Build a Better Blog project is all about giving participants a series of 31 daily tasks to help them make improvements in their blogs. This workbook takes this goal a step further with:

  • Refreshed and Edited Versions of the Daily Tasks and Teaching
  • New Bonus Material – each day has extra tips, questions and reflections (6000 extra words of content to help you extend the daily tasks and help you to apply them)
  • Notes Areas – if you print out the book there is room to take notes, record ideas and make plans to help you implement the content
  • 94 pages of content – actually we put two pages on each page in the book so it’s actually 188 pages.

Grab Yourself a Copy Today

Whether you’ve completed each of the 31 Daily tasks already and want to have a copy to dip into again and again as you continue to develop your blog or whether you’re yet to really start 31DBBB – I hope you’ll find this workbook helpful.

PS: How are Bloggers using 31DBBB?

One of the things that I’ve loved about 31DBBB is seeing how it is being used so differently by different participants.

While originally designed for bloggers to work through over a month – the feedback that we’ve been hearing from bloggers indicates that 31DBBB is being used in a variety of ways including:

  • Intense Training – bloggers setting aside days, weekends or weeks to go through multiple tasks at once
  • 1 Task a Day – the way we designed it – one day at a time
  • 1 Task a Week – bloggers taking their time with the challenge and making the tasks week long tasks
  • Monthly Cycle – bloggers using the tasks again and again each month as a monthly routine for their blogging.
  • Occasional Inspirational Resource – bloggers dipping into 31DBBB on a more occasional basis – using it on days when they have time or lack inspiration.

The great thing about 31DBBB is that you can do it at your own pace and in your own way. Daily tasks don’t need to be done daily or in any particular order as all but two are independent tasks that can be repeated time and time again to help you grow a dynamic blog.

    This link takes me to a paypal account. wondering whether it is a book or an ebook!!!

  4. Awesome, awesome, awesome! I bought your first book and used all the tips into to launch my blog, nine months later, I’m here to thank you for launching my blog career!!!

    I’m signing up for this!

  5. NIce idea, the amount of ideas coming out the live event where quite overwhelming, this allows people to run the tasks at their own pace

  6. Great, I’m reaching my wallet for my credit card for this, and I hope I could increase my traffic and readership after 31 days…. If it’s good I’m going to to a honest-to-God rave review of it on my blog….

  7. Wonderful resource. I read *most* of the individual posts, but having the information in this format is a lot more convenient. Thanks. Quick download too.

  8. Going to buy this tonight.

  9. Anyone who wants to be a better and successful blogger should grab this ebook.

    It’s worth every penny.

  10. Great idea. I started the 31 Days Challenge, but life got in the way and I just started filtering each day’s task into a separate mail folder. Now I can proceed at my own pace, and this workbook would be very helpful.

  11. Hi Darren,

    please make sure you broadcast loud and clear when the affiliate program begins, as I am anxious to write a review of my own and start selling the workbook for you. It’s a great resource, one every blogger should have on hand all the time. All these exercises should be done periodically, over and over again. It’s advice that never gets old.
    Thanks for being there for us!

  12. Fantastic idea Darren, another great example of selling content online.

    Thanks for sharing this sure-to-be valuable resource.

  13. thanks everyone for the feedback. I’m heading to bed now but happy to answer any questions in the morning.

  14. I might buy this book, does it include more than the 31 days of emails? I started http://www.therunningback.com because of your tips. I didnt follow ALL of them, i guess i followed what was convenient for me.

    Just wanted to say thanks!


    • @DBAX – Yes. There’s additional info, as well as updated info in the workbook than was presented in the free course.

  15. Is there a preview available for the workbook?

    [edit by Lara: The preview would be the free course that already ran for 31 days, Bob. This workbook is an updated and expanded upon version of that.]

  16. Great idea.
    I will try this in the coming days.

    Best regards.

    Jackie Chia

  17. Congrats on the release of the workbook Darren. Having followed the program and my involvement in the editing/design process, I can certainly support others sentiments of the huge amount wisdom to be gained from the workbook.

    If anyone has any questions on Online Marketing Inside Out (option 2), I’d be happy to answer any questions.

  18. ohh come on you guys earned a lot and still never miss a chance to monetize stuff. You should have give this treat for FREE to your readers. Learn from SHOEMONEY.

    From Darren: Confused…. you seem to be critiquing me here but on your blog you’re promoting it with the affiliate program?

    • @ Make money from blogging – Are you serious? Darren DID HAVE this project out for free…

      Or did you miss this from the post?

      Regular readers of ProBlogger are familiar with the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog project that we ran here recently.
      Each day for 31 days readers were presented with a daily task and teaching to give them concrete ways to take their blogs to the next level – the goal being more readers, higher quality content, deeper reader engagement and higher levels of creativity and energy for the blogger.

      This workbook is out there for several reasons:
      – People can feel free to work at their own pace
      – Can be used as a one-stop reference tool, and
      It offers up new ideas in addition to the entire 31 DBBB project that he ran for free ALREADY.

  19. I have really found your “31 Days to Build a Better Blog” awesome and this now this work book at reasonable price also seems a good idea to go with.

  20. Just awesome! I followed this when you first released it and I feel like it really helped so I wrote a post about it on my site.

    Thanks again,
    Smart Teenager

  21. I need to wait till my next paycheck to buy it…but I think I’m sold on buying the two book bundle! Looks like you did a great job on this, and I’m very excited to buy it.

  22. Just what I needed as I prepare to re-launch my blog and take it more seriously. Thanks for everything you do!

  23. I am planning to buy it for my blog site.. http://www.mygr8blog.com.
    Hope it helps


  24. Congrats, Darren. :)

  25. I just bought it with the hard copy of the “Online Marketing Inside and Out”. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  26. Thanks Darren, I’m a great fan of your blog and therefore of you, since you know what you are talking about when the subject it’s blogging I have bought the ebook and I’m getting down to read it right away!

  27. Cool website, like what I have read. Will definitely be back to read again. Harshad

  28. This is great info for us all. Glad you posted this. I am subscribing to this blog. Brett

  29. To @Make money from blogging

    For someone who supposedly wants to teach people how to make money online from blogging, you sure do have a funny attitude about making money online. This makes me question your motivations and the value of your materials. Good job… <>

  30. Great Job. You are the man when it comes to blogging. Keep it up. Michael Thomas

  31. If Shoe likes your book, that’s good enough for me.

    I can’t wait to read it.

  32. I’m pretty sure I’m gonna put this to some good use… Lord knows most of us need the knowledge and help from this book.

  33. I will make the money to buy this book on my tomorrow’s stock trading.

  34. Darren, from another Aussie…You’re a Good Bloke!

    Well done with the book, I hope it goes well for you.

    You deserve all the rewards and accolades!

  35. Great idea! I am working through your ProBlogger paperback now and love it!

  36. Amazing one! I hope I can buy it. It’s just that it’s a little expensive as I am from the Philippines and am just a part-time blogger.

  37. To Make Money from Blogging,

    I appreciated the free 31 day blog challenge and thought it was great business sense to offer a workbook collection for those that may not be as organized to keep everything all together. One doesn’t have to buy the workbook, however, from a business woman to another business man: Job well done, Darren!

  38. Amazing tool! It`s so inspiring to read professional text. I am sure this will be a big, BIG, success. Go on with the good work!

    Take care,

    Juhani Tontti

  39. wow is look like nice and perfect book and information in here

  40. I had a feeling this would happen when the course finished. Good luck with it, I tried to sign up for the free course but got very confused so did not finish it. :(

  41. Hey Darren

    “31 Days to Build a Better Blog” is indeed a must to today’s blogging needs.

    Have secured a copy..

    Well done!

  42. The price is too expensive…..

    from Darren: I’m sorry that it’s out of your price range BMB. The way I priced this was to survey 20 or so participants in the initial course as to what they felt it was worth. The average figure mentioned was in the $25-$30 price range (most said $1 a day was reasonable).

    While plenty of people charge a lot more for an ebook of this length (essentially it’s 180+ pages) I didn’t feel comfortable with that so went with $19.95. I know it won’t be for everyone but the general consensus that I’m reading from people reviewing it is that I probably under charged.

  43. Congrats on the release Darren! I was in the “31 Days to Build a Better Blog” program and found the information invaluable. As a reader of ProBlogger.net and owner of your first book, I was really excited to get my hands on this workbook. It definitely doesn’t disappoint, either. It’s packed with useful new information in addition to all the great tips from the “31 Days” on your blog.

  44. Congrats on the release of the workbook Darren. I’m sure it will be a fantastic read, thanks!

  45. Darren,

    Someone needs to stand up and publically call out these “professional” publishing houses that edit and proof for bloggers.

    It appears they believe nobody will check their work or care that they did a sub par job. I purchased and proofed your 31 days pdf last night and found that 72 proofing corrections went unnoticed. This is unacceptable. You are one of the biggest bloggers on the planet and for them to miss that many for you is ridiculous.

    For the last couple of years, I’m noticing this happening more and more and it’s got to stop. Let this public kick in the arse to your publisher be the beginning. I’ll send you the proof; just contact me with the email you want me to send it to.


    PS. Otherwise, it was an awesome book and I thank you kindly.

  46. Darren,
    Great idea. I’m working my way toward buying the book. I signed up for the free course, but ‘real life’ got in the way (too many apartments to clean to stay caught up). As I don’t have my website design solid yet it was easy to just toss the links to each day’s assignment in it’s special folder after skimming it briefly, but even so my mind’s never far away from the challenge as I continue to use every spare minute to learn how to market myself online, website design and how to be a better blogger/social networker.
    I did have a chance to read some of the forums that went so well with the challenge a few times and the excitement and focus of the course attendees made me giddy in anticipation of my own future participation. I’m not concerned that I’ll be too late in the game as I see new posts every time I take a peek in the forums. I’m not alone in continuing to strive for your level of dedication and excellence.
    For those commenters above who said the book is ‘too expensive’ or ‘repetitive of the free course’, I’d first encourage them to review the book’s pre-review by those who not only took the free course, but participated faithfully on a day by day basis for the entire 31 days of the challenge. I don’t see any of them saying it’s too expensive nor that they’ve already completed it sufficiently. Far from ‘dissing’ the book, they are overwhelmingly anticipatory of it’s release.
    When looking for reviews on something I’m contemplating purchasing, I always look to those who’ve used the product personally or at least something similar from the same creator. That the book so closely ties to the free course makes it much simpler to use the reviews of the course and/or the anticipation of the book by participants in the course as sufficient sources for my own pre-review. Their responses are overwhelmingly positive so, yes, I’ll be buying the book even though it will strain my finances. After all, I can give up donuts/convenient store coffee/sodas for a month in order to use a proven and well reviewed source to educate myself on how to be a better blogger. Well worth the price is my own pre-review.

  47. Darren, thank you for this ebook!

    I really appreciate it. If you are blog for business and are just one person, it is useful to do a revision once in a while. It is also nice to have your suggestions, just makes it easier to jump in and do something.

    I tried to do the free course in 31 days, but got sidetracked. This time I’m setting aside 4 consecutive Saturdays to review the parts I feel I need most.

  48. The Online Marketing Inside Out Book seem good, will buy this 2 book.

  49. Nice and by the way congratulation. I was hopping for a lower price.

  50. Hey Darren. I signed up for the 31DBBBB Challenge but I had exams going on in the school and I wasn’t able to get along with you. Being a High School junior (now a senior) I have a lot to do other that blogging so I would love to get your workbook and go through it without being on the computer and without getting distracted and lost in the internet.
