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.

  1. I don’t think I’d find myself wasting money on this. I hate paying for xxxx that people think they’re too elite to share for free.

    Edited for language

    From Darren: Sorry you feel this way Jenny. In actual fact the majority of what you get in this book has been made available for free over the last 6 or so weeks here at ProBlogger. As mentioned in this post – the reason I’m offering it is that people found the free content so valuable that they wanted to have it all in one document so that they could come back to it time and time again. If that’s not for you – that’s your prerogative but please get your fact straight and do try to keep your language reasonable.

    • Jenny, Darren DID share much of it for free. I’m sorry you clearly missed the 31 days that he was posting about it here, that you could’ve signed up for yourself, for absolutely nothing.

      The workbook does have additional, updated information in it, but in no way is it fair to call Darren out that he’s thinking he’s “too elite to share for free”. Maybe you should peruse the 4+ years of free content here on the blog instead, but the workbook has proven to be an invaluable resource for many others.

  2. @ Make Money From Blogging – are you serious? First of all, ShoeMoney is only offering his 12 week course for free because it is going to get a ton of people to sign up for ShoeMoney Tools and the Elite Retreat. I don’t fault him for this at all…just saying he’s not exactly doing it out of benevolence.

    Also, its absolutely hilarious to me that when I go to your blog (which makes it clear you have no imagination…john chow knockoff) the first thing that comes up is a promo for Darren’s Book you just ripped on. Brilliant. And please learn to speak English.

  3. Great wordbook, a must book for blogger. Thanks providing this.

  4. Thanks a lot for writing such an interesting workbook.

    Well done Daren

    Keep up the premium work

  5. Definitely considering this. Great resource I can only assume and I think it would help a lot. Thanks for the offer.

    For those complaining that it costs something, please knock it off. This guy has been working his butt off for YEARS to get to this point. He consistently provides amazingly quality information on this blog FOR FREE. He’s making a living; this is his job. He has to charge for his products. What you’re asking for is for Darren to hand out, for free, all the information he’s acquired through his hard work and dedication. What would be the point in him having done all this if he couldn’t make any profit from it? Be glad he’s offering the resource at all, stop complaining.

  6. I really appreciated and benefited from the 31DBBB – I have a bit of an issue with paypal (some fraud let to account closure and it made me run a bit scared of signing up again) so will consider the two book offer as it negates the need for paypal (I think!).
    But to people who are less hung up with paypal, I’d definitely recommend it!

  7. Hi Darren,
    This is very useful guide.I love it.

  8. This is practically one of the best “first aid” to bloggers especially for the newbies. Your idea of having it self-paced was good since you took into consideration the needs of the readers. It is individualized and will really be helpful. http://www.CostaRicaHQ.com

  9. I participated in the 31DBBB program and it was fantastic! I did save each day’s discussions, but I think this will be good to have all in one place and to see the added information. I put a lot of the ideas into practice in my blog and my views have increased. There is still more to do!

  10. I was recently a 31 dbbb virgin, but have since purchased and am on day 2. I like having a program in place and I enjoy the forums that have been provided so that we (bloggers) can interact with eachother.

    I think a podcast version could be cool to have also…thoughts?

  11. All your readers must appreciate this information. I know I do. Thanks, from Will

  12. Anyone know if Darren has an affiliate program for the 31 days to Better Blogging yet?

  13. hi louis, not yet,darren hasn’t got an affiliate program for 31 days to better blogging yet,i also wish he had.

  14. This is a very interesting website. I wish I had found it earlier. This information will definitely come in handy.

  15. Darren, I’m thoroughly enjoying the eBook! I do have one suggestion… Offer it in Amazon Kindle and Sony eBook Reader formats. I’d love to buy a copy for my Kindle so I can continue reading while traveling this week. Just a thought…

  16. Yeah I’m thinking of trying this out for my own blog
    Startups and Such
    Any little bit can help a blog.


  17. You are rated high in Technorati. You must be doing something right.

  18. Your site is very full of good information. Everyone can learn so much things by reading hear.

  19. Hey Darren,

    Just been reading through all the comments on this post. It’s interesting that people are complaining that you are charging for a recourse so valuable. If you don’t invest in your learning and education you will never get anywhere in life. And at $19.95 investment certainly isn’t an expensive one!

    Always been a fan of your blog and what you have to say, keep it up!


  20. That is a really good looking book Darren!

  21. I just got mine!

    I’ve only had time to browse it, but I know – having gone through the 31DBBB – that it will be well worth the price.

    The reason for my comment is to give huge KUDOS to Darren and his designers for putting the eBook in a computer screen friendly format!!!

    I can’t figure out why more people aren’t realizing that 8.5 x 11 is a horrible format for an eBook. (OK – I’m guilty of this on my first eBook too, but it’ll be corrected on the second… LOL).

    Anyhow, great job and great format Darren!


  22. I am a bit confused why it only costs $29 that in the end it can change ones future. You know what guess, this is where kindness comes in. It is not really about selling and profiting from that offer, its all about helping people build their own website and business.

    In my case, I would not hesitate to pay for that :-)

  23. Great advice during the 31DBBB event. Loved it so much that your book is now featured on my front page.

  24. Hi

    Darren, i’ve not had chance to go through the whole book yet, but what I’ve read so far makes good sense to me, and this doesn’t just apply to blogs, it applies to any kind of online content publishing.

    I’m a little perplexed about the folks who are so cheap that they think they are entitled to this information free of charge.

    Still, it’s their loss, not mine.


  25. Thanks for putting this in hard cover book form. As of right now, I don’t own a Blackberry or laptop, so I have no way of reading the e-book outside of my home. With the hardcover, that’s not a problem.

  26. looks like a great news, will think about to buy, i think it can make me impruve my skills and blogging better

  27. preetirajlaxmi says: 06/06/2009 at 2:23 pm

    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

  28. Hi Darren,
    This is very useful guide.I can’t wait to read it.

  29. Hello, everyone.

    I’m interested in buying a copy of this, but is it relevant to blogger? I know I should be using wordpress etc etc, but I ‘ve gone and filled my blog with a lot of content, and I feel it maybe a massive task to transfer. I wouldn’t want to purchase this, only to find it is aimed mainly at worpress blogs, templates, add-ons etc. Thanks in advance, guys!

    • Doing a transfer is amazingly simple, Kristian… there are tools inside both blogspot and wordpress that make it happen with just a few clicks and some minor cleanup afterward. Honest!

      To answer your question though, there are tons of people who did the free course that were using blogger… many of whom decided to make the switch to self hosted because they realized that the ability to fully customize their site was important to them in order to be able to sell ads and do some other stuff like that. The tools and assignments in the program do work for any type of blog, not just WordPress or TypePad or anything like that… it’s well worth the shot no matter what setup you’re using. (But I personally am a huge proponent of self-hosted WP and have made switches for people dozens of times… it’s really NOT complicated, I promise.

  30. I’m sure it will be worth reading!
    Thanks for Sharing.

    Jenney MaC.

  31. Loving the workbook – actually documenting my usage since I am a true first time blogger. Hoping to see what results I will get from using your workbook. So far in a week I have read 3 or 4 chapters and completed the tasks. I am sure it is basic for some people out there, but for me this is all new and so challenging.

    Thanks for the book- and I look forward to using your book to help build myself and family a better blog.

  32. Great! Who already bought this workbook? Who can give review about this workbook?

    To Your Success

  41. This was a well-spent $20. While I had read some of this elsewhere, I got some great, practical tips for writing some “formula” posts that I have already written and several more I have planned. Motivated me to get a notebook for my post ideas and filled several pages already. Also, I learned about a few new tools to apply to a blog to extend its capabilities. Thanks Darren

  42. Great ebook so far – I’m a fan of trying to streamline any process I go through and this might be just the thing. I’m looking forward to learning new things from this ebook Darren!
