International Start a Blog Day Class of 2018

Posted By Darren Rowse 8th of February 2018 General 0 Comments
International Start a Blog Day 2018

ProBlogger created International Start a Blog Day on February 7th to celebrate the achievements and diversity of new bloggers around the world launching their blogs at the beginning of the year.

Please join us in supporting these new bloggers by checking out their sites, reading their stories, leaving them a comment and following them on social media. They've taken action by completing ProBlogger’s Ultimate Guide to Starting a Blog course and following through on a commitment they’ve made to themselves and their future readership.

We’d also like to recognise the crop of pre-bloggers who are currently working through the course and taking steps to launch their blogs. We’ll be bringing you updates on them throughout the year.

Congratulations to the Class of 2018!

You can check out all the new bloggers below – enjoy scrolling through the entries! You can a also sort by Blog Topic to find some new blogging buddies in your niche. For more details about each blogger, click on the button to expand their entry.

Class of 2018 Scholarship Winners

We selected five scholarship winners who caught our attention and imagination with their new blogs. Each winner will get free access to our 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Course launching in March, as well as a one-on-one coaching session with one of our team. The winners are...


“We look forward to sharing with you our financial lessons learned from our past (some the hard way), as well as our new skills going forward."

Our Team said:

Great name! Easy for many couples/families to identify with this situation, some good tips already on health & wealth, credit cards and goals. Can write across a range of issues and monetize via products and affiliates.


“We’ve been doing periods the same old way since day dot. It’s time to make a change, for the BETTER.”

Our Team said:

“It is one thing to wait in line at a store, but waiting to have a family takes it to a whole other level. My prayer is that this blog becomes a refuge when dealing with life’s waits to provide you hope, encouragement, peace, resources and most of all support.”

Our Team said:

Great branding, personal approach, large potential audience yet niche, thoughtful monetisation strategy (Encouragement gifts)

    So interesting how so many people can start with the same assignment and the results are so diverse! I love the creativity of the group.

  5. Thanks for sharing these successful launches. I checked out all the Travel blogs and love the diversity represented. I subscribed to a couple and picked up some nuggets of wisdom. As always I learn so much at ProBlogger!

    thanks for sharing, I am curious as to why there are no pet blogs? Maybe because brands barely pay us? lol. My niche is pet so I look there first, I also do follow a ton of food blogs as well because that is my other passion.

    Amazing results! Congratulations, Darren Rowse, on the initiative. I am surprised to see how many blogs were created in the personal growth, family, and health and wellness niches. This just goes to show how blogs are instrumental for the creation of a better world in every aspect.

    Hey, congratulations everybody! I didn’t make it till February 7., but I’ll officially launch my blog (Stilfarm) on March 9. Thanks Darren Rowse for connecting so many people on this journey. I’m super excited to browse all the blogs :) I already saw a few of them and am doing my best to get such an awesome blog up & running myself. So I’m sure I’m not the only one launching a bit late. No doubt that many blogs will follow the next weeks and months inspired by you – and I hope they will get on this honours list, too ;)

    Congratulations! After checking some of them I found really good blogs and I would love to see them grow. Also, it’s good to see how many topics people are going for, it could be inspiring for many people.

  10. Devri Ficklin says: 02/10/2018 at 5:02 pm

    Congratulations! I am inspired by the new blogs launched. It’s very fun to search their blogs and see the wide variety of pluggins. I am learning more each day and looking forward to the 31 day course. Thank you for motivating me to finally launch my blog! Something I love to do, but have never had the courage to officially launch. I am now changing my focus and looking at this as a career not just a part-time hobby!

  11. Thanks @Darren for the initiative, really a great initiative, will check all pages. Thanks for the share.

  12. Thanks, Darren for the motivation and education over the most recent 100 round trips to my new dream job, which is the subject of my new blog. I’ve learned something valuable in each of 200+ episodes of PROBLOGGER Podcast, 31 Days to Build a Better Blog and the recent class. I’ve been procrastinating, POD-crastinating and over-practicing. Waiting to be perfect, I wasted a year. Thanks so much for the push. I’m live with a blog, recording to podcast, next, inviting to a FaceBook group and goin’ live everywhere. Lead on PROBLOGGER!

    WOO! I am grateful for the opportunity to be featured with a list of such wonderful new blogs, I know that all new bloggers put in hours of hard work to launch their blogs. The journey has just begun, but a strong foundation has been made thanks to the ProBlogger Start a Blog Course!
