Welcome to ProBlogger – A Quick Tour for New Readers

Posted By Darren Rowse 22nd of February 2010 Featured Posts, ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

In the last 24 hours we’ve had a lot of new readers to ProBlogger after a couple of links from sites like Yahoo.

If this is your first time (or you’re newish to ProBlogger) to ProBlogger.net then I thought I’d put together a quick tour of my online home.

darren-rowse.jpgFirstly, my name’s Darren Rowse (that’s me posing with my computer monitor trying to look like that’s a normal thing to do) and – I’m a full time blogger. I blog both here at ProBlogger but also at Digital Photography School.

ProBlogger is a blog that is devoted to helping bloggers improve their blogging and explore ways to earn an income at the same time by writing about topics that they love.

More and more bloggers are now making at least a part time income blogging – with some even having gone ‘Pro’ with full time incomes.

I write more about the reasons for this blog and my experience as a blogger in my About Page. You might also like to see some of the ways that I make money from my blogs for an introduction into how bloggers make money blogging.

If you’re new to blogging you might find this ‘what is a blog?‘ article and my series on Blogging for Beginners helpful.

If you like what you read here you can follow my future entries (I write 1-2 posts per day) in two ways – either using our RSS News feed or you can get daily updates by adding your email address to the field at the top of my sidebar.

I also send weekly(ish) newsletters out with updates from this site plus extra stuff just for subscribers. You can sign up for that here.

Resources for Bloggers

Most of what you’ll find here on ProBlogger is 100% free – however I’ve also produced 3 resources that you might find useful:

  1. ProBlogger the Book – a hard cover book I co-authored two years back that is ideal for beginners wanting to explore how to make money online.
  2. 31 Days to Build a Better Blog – an e-book for people with blogs that have stalled and in need of a little inspiration and motivation.
  3. ProBlogger Community – a community of bloggers who come together to learn and collaborate to improve their blogs.

If you’re looking for a blogging job – also check out the free ProBlogger Blog Job Boards.

Thanks for stopping by – I hope you enjoy your stay at ProBlogger. If you do have any questions feel free to drop me a note in a comment below or via my contact form.

  1. for a new reader you can be quit overwhelmed with quality information and therfore you wouldnt know where to start
    this introduction is great thanks

  2. Oh my goodness. While I purchased “31 Days to Build a Better Blog” months ago, I just started the program a couple of weeks ago. I cannot believe the results – even when I do it wrong! you said, “Write a list post” and I did. You said, “Promote a post to another blogger with similar content’” and suggested we promote the list post. Well I promoted a different post to a blogger. A week later this showed up in the reader on my iGoogle page: “A live-aboard’s blog worth checking out — Harts At Sea”. My pageviews have doubled. I am energized. I am thrilled. You are brilliant. Thank you, Darren. I have a long way to go, but am sure I can get there. For those of you new to ProBlogger — you are in the right place where knowledge and ethics and skills meet. Enjoy!

  3. Darren,

    I am not new to ProBlogger – in fact I have been following you all the way up to Third Tribe Marketing!!

    This comment is to appreciate the post idea… It’s really cool and gives a heads up for any one visiting a blog for the first time. A nice thought and I will try it on some of my blogs soon :)


  4. Hello,
