Problogger – Secrets For Blogging a Six Figure Blog

Posted by

Yesterday my copy of Problogger’s book – Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income arrived in the mail from Amazon! Now everyone knows I cant read a book so I would be lying if I said I have read the whole thing or am going to read the whole thing. But it has topped the stack of books for “on the can” reading and also “while cooking breakfast”.

My initial reaction thumbing through the book is that it looks pretty good. It looks to be a great walk through on everything from blogging software to getting started to finding profitable niches.

Actually I really like the chapter on finding profitable niches. There are some really good tips there.

Also it uses a lot of real world blogs to show case studies. I saw eMom Wendy in there…. hmm no mention of shoemoney (whats up d?). Its all good though.

The book is only $19 on amazon. Congratulations to Darren Rowse and Chris Garnett. Its been a really hard process for me writing the shoemoney playbook and I give major props to these busy guys getting this done!

I highly recommend buying this book.

    Have recently ordered a copy of this, so am happy to get your endorsement of this product. Your endorsement will definitely generate some more business for these nice people. Nice of you Shoe, am looking forward to the Shoemoney Playbook, consider the order placed!

  2. Website Reviews

    Shoe, I am very much like you, there are only a few times a day I can sit down and read a book.. The Problogger book looks like a good one for the John J. Crapper rack!

    Being a chick I of course am checking out your kitchen. I love the stainless steal fridge, did you polish that before photo time. LOL:)

    I dig Darren, not sure I’m going to buy the book though.

  4. Redlines

    That look is priceless on your face. Are you sure there isn’t snuff pictures in there? Seriously though, I think I will probably purchase as throne reading material. props to Darren and Chris.

    Unfortunately it’s not always such a small world after all… Now all I need to get my message across is a man made river and some freakish looking automatic dolls. Yes I can see it now….

    Great to see folks in the blogging community authoring books. That should be motivation for others to hone their skills and write some good printable content.

    The upstairs kitchen is much nicer than the one in the basement, all you need now is a swimming pool, and you’re set for the summer. :)

  7. Jeff

    I agree. Sweet fridge. I was looking at the plants on top of the cabinets. EVERYONE does that. In my condo, I have cabinets to the ceiling.

    I’ll have to look into this book. I’m a bad novice blogger, so I could use the help!

  8. Hypnosis Dude

    It’s a shame that the book isn’t available as a downloadable format. Looking on the problogger site there is a chapter that can be downloadable so that you can get a sense of what the book is like.

  9. Samir

    I’m looking forward to reading this book. I have a feeling that it will help even people that have been blogging for a while

  10. Darren Rowse

    Thanks for the mention Jeremy – and for the pics. I’m still yet to hold one in my hands so it’s good to see it actually exists!

    IN terms of those from outside the US wanting a copy there’s two options:

    1. order from Amazon who ship to most places. I ordered a book last week and got it in 5 days here to Australia

    2. it’ll have a global release and is expected to hit stores in most counties in 4-6 weeks. I’ve had one person in India tell me that he had success in ordering it from a bookstore there – they don’t have stock yet but are getting one in for him. He just gave them the ISBN number.

    thanks again Jeremy

    Is that one of those antique books you’re holding? Like those things made out of paper? 😛 You would think with the technology today you would be able to just download a book in digital form.

  12. lawrence

    All you people who are commenting here are probably not the most likely candidates to be buying/reading that book, as you already know all the basic “secrets”.

  13. Tamish Mehra

    One question Shoe – I checked out that JohnCow is making around 2500 from just over 100,000 pageviews .
    How does he reach that much ?

  14. Clog Money

    I think you may be getting confused. If your not John Chows page views to money ratio will astound you.

    Total Earnings: $31,441.24
    Blog traffic for March was 282,424 page views from 152,523 unique visitors.

  15. Goran Website

    I have ordered a copy of their book. Thanks for the heads-up. I would have expected a little something on you guys. Books are a nice break from the PC.

  16. Hustle Strategy

    Shoe just posted on wicked fire that he was reading the chapter on viral blogging, it was talking about how posting the goatse pic would help you go viral and increase profits.

  17. Hustle Strategy

    I always like playing the “Who will make more money” game. Will problogger make more from his book sale then shoe from amazon during the next week? Shoe will get sales and hopefully get other big items added to the cart. PB will be getting books moved…

    For sure! If you’re going to post about a book that is available on Amazon you might as well post you affiliate link. If people are going to buy from Amazon, you might as well buy it through an affiliate link because Amazon doesn’t need 100% of the profit now do they? 😉

    I’m sure the book is great, but I’m totally distracted by your beautiful kitchen :)

  21. Hermit

    I’m new to all this, so I think I’ll check the book out.

    And yes, your kitchen is awesome

    I got my copy of the book over the weekend but it was damaged. As I glanced through it I think it has a lot of decent content but really it is just a physical copy of some of their posts.

  23. David Marx

    Geez, some of you guys only got dirty minds! The look of surprise was surely feigned to indicate surprise at some “trade secret” that was dispensed in the Problogger book?

  24. David Marx

    Affiliate Marketing is what it is all about. There are 16,000 odd subscribers to the Shoemoney RSS feed, so if one is dedicating a page to punting something, there are bound to be some leads generated, and sales converted from this traffic. It is only fair to have a percentage for one’s troubles.

  25. David Marx

    Feel your pain. If you think the UK is bad, try ordering stuff via the internet from South Africa. The money transfer thing (especially if you don’t have a credit card) is bad, but the unreliability of the postal service is something else! This is Africa, after all!

  26. Web Marketeer

    Hahahahah….you must be confusing the Shoe with the Hugh…..Playbook sounds similar to Playmoney, but methinks the stuff being marketed in the two publications might be a tad different…

  27. Web Marketeer

    Assimilation whilst excreting….sort of the old making way for the new…now poo and new does rhyme, so maybe we can come up with something that sounds like this…

    Excrete the dirty old poo
    Whilst assimilating knowledge new

    My english teacher must be rolling in her grave….

    Ok! I got my copy just today with help of a relative from Amazon. I am going to read it. I do not know why I did not go quickly for this but let’s see. Now I am ready to digest it and will post my thoughts at my site.
