Getting to 1000 Visitors a Day, When to Go Pro, .Net or .Com and Lonely Bloggers – Reader Questions Answered

Posted By Darren Rowse 13th of September 2007 Video Posts 0 Comments


Today’s video is me tackling four questions from readers:

1. How long did it take to get to 1000 visitors a day (and how did I do it)? – submitted by Jason from atomicguitarist.com. Read a little more on anticipating what people will be searching for in my post Seasonal Traffic and How to Capture it for Your Blog.

2. How and When did I go ‘Pro’? – submitted by Brennan from bpmonaco.com. Read more about my journey of Becoming a ProBlogger.

3. Why do I use ProBlogger.net not ProBlogger.com? – submitted by Vincent from theworldofmodernmen.com. Read more about the process of me buying ProBlogger.com.

4. Can Blogging full time get Lonely? – submitted by Adam from adamok.net. Read more about blogging and relationships at Blogging in Formation – Lessons from a Goose and How to Improve Your Blog by Partnering Up.

Apologies for the lower quality video this week. I recorded it on my laptop’s built in webcam which isn’t as great as my normal camcorder.

  1. If we already have a blogsite, but don’t want to go professional at the moment, how can we start earning money on it? Like you said when you started, it was enough to buy a coffee everyday. I’m wondering if I can start working towards that. Is there a way to apply some “money making” effect to my already excisting blog? Thanks for your time.

  2. Well must say great info,and love your new template…

  3. Thank you very much for posting this video. Others that are successful bloggers often come across very arrogant, but you demonstated a level of humility. Thanks again very helpful.

  4. Terrific video post with good advice. Well grounded approach. Please keep it coming.

  5. Cool. I think I’m leaving the not-quite-enough-earnings-for-coffee stage, and moving on to the saving-for-a-laptop-stage (odd that I’ve had that goal as long as I’ve been trying to monetize my blog).

  6. Informative video thanks a lot hope you got more on the cards!

  7. Thanks Darren,
    A very interesting video, and I can relate to it, especially the loneliness aspect, but you seem to have made a good option for yourself. It sounds like blogging would be a good career. I don’t know though, do you blog other sites as well as your own?
    My blog is wealthyaffiliatepage.com
    I’m starting to build up a few blogging bits, anyone who’d like to take a look and add a blog or 2 please do. Any suggestions appreciated.

  8. Your post is so apropos…I found myself wondering why my Memorial Day post on “10 tips for greening your Memorial Day picnic” had gone up as one of my top 10 posts.

    Aha….4th of July picnics are not all that different from Memorial Day picnics! :)
