What would you do if you owned ProBlogger.net?

Posted By Darren Rowse 12th of October 2007 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

Mani got my attention with this post today – What would you do if you owned ProBlogger.net?

There’s some great answers in the comments section – would love to hear more of your ideas!

PS: I actually think it’s a good question to ask others about your blog. In fact I asked this very question to two other bloggers this past week and the answers were really informative. Sometimes getting perspectives from outside your own blogging zone can bring a great new perspective.

  1. I’m confused. :D Darren how’s you looking at it?

  2. First of all I would employ Darren as my Manager, so that it would bloom as it is blooming right now.

  3. I owned a blog like this I would defiantly sell it and make big cash!!

  4. I would make money with it and live off the earnings.

  5. I would redirect it to my blog lol. and will follow your foot steps to run it. or sometimes will irritate you help and guide.

  6. I would put my pictures at the top with a large size … :P LOL

  7. I would continue to blog

  8. difficult question really. i could not do better than you, so I would offer you 80% of it and run it together :)

  9. I would run it separately on its own, not including it inside b5media. I think that way it would make a lot more money. I would make it easier to advertise for people, put advertise page and rates (displaying them clearly). Currently it’s discouraging for many people, because you need to go through b5media. It gives an impression that… probably it’s too expensive for anybody except for Fortune500 companies who has thick wallets.

  10. I’d run a forum on the blog and would do some paid coaching. Eventually I’d keep track of 5-10 new blogs to manage them into great money earners.

    I would also hire bloggers to translate my posts into different languages: Portuguese, Spanish and German. I guess it would help non-English speakers bloggers.


  11. I will sell it to Darren Rowse.

  12. I see how much you’d pay me for the domain name. :)

    Actually I like the blogger training ground idea. Professional blogging for business owners is much different from regular blogging, so it would be nice for training to be available. Maybe even certification.

  13. I’d try to sell it again.

    I’d ask:

    Whats its purpose?

    Whats its message?

    Whats its point?

    I’d also ask

    “Does it command respect with the readers I want?”

    Then I’d make sure that it does those really well.
