• Great post Dan, I wish I had thought of that 🙂 I too am a victim of Darren’s endless blogging encouragement and have seen amazing amounts of new traffic as a result. The only problem is that it is hard to keep up with the blogging, photographing, processing, guest blogs, interviews and finding time to do other writing as well. But that is the challenge we face as photographers today.

    Very cute. Now I have to buy that book! Hopefully I can blame both of you when traffic increases. (-:

  • Darren Rowse says:

    thanks Dan – I greatly appreciate the feedback and am delighted to hear that 31DBBB was helpful. You’ve done the most important part though – you’ve stuck it through and implemented what you’ve learned over time. So many people give up too quick.

    thanks for writing this post!

    Fabulous post… How many of us would never have persisted without the Problogger and his guidance!!! His 31DBBB is brilliant and I did it at just the right time – the watershed of bumbling out of blogging and carrying on with this crazy obsession!!! My blog is stronger for all his lessons and I just love what the Problogger has done for the blogging community… opening it up and sharing his expertise… leading the way and setting a friendly example!!!

  • Dan Bailey says:

    I’m with you, Anne. Sometimes I find myself overwhelmed by the efforts that I put into my blogging activities. If I’m not shooting, editing or contacting clients, I’m writing. It’s definitely hard to keep up, but you’re right- that’s the challenge we face as photographer in today’s world. Glad you’ve found success with your blog too, keep up the good work! BTW, when are you coming to Alaska?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Darren, I appreciate that you took the time to stop by and leave a comment. Thanks again for sharing your valuable insight with the rest of us!

    -Cheers, Dan

    Thanks for the post Darren –– very encouraging. Like Dan, I have found bloogging now to be one of my favorite sports. I only wish that I was born a ‘writer’ rather than an ‘art director’, but I’m a sponge for learning new stuff – like how to write better, more interesting and engaging posts. I guess my next move should be to pick up the book.

  • raghavendra says:

    I have read a book on his journey and success in blogging. How his life turned to a professional one. All his journey are the inspirational to every blogger out there. cannot wait to see the new book 🙂

  • Excellent post Dan! So cool it’s working out for you this way!! Thanks for always posting some great content on your blog!!

  • Jen says:

    Great to hear your feedback on 31 Days to Build a Better Blog. It sounds like it has been great for you.
    Rowse also blogs about photography–is the eBook especially good for photographers?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Jen, I’ve definitely found it to be useful as a photographer. While the topics in Darren’s book aren’t necessarily oriented around photography, they can easily translate to whatever subjects you want to blog about.

  • Hi Dan, We haven’t quite figured out when we are going to Alaska yet, but it is definitely on the list! I’m not sure our trailer can handle the road up there! But I’m thinking maybe next spring would be a good time. Although I would love to go up there in winter too. I think I’ll to fly if I do that 🙂
