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.

  1. So when can we expect the first in the ShoeMoney triliogy??

    Warm geeky regards,


  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. I love the second photo, that is hilarious… looks like you just figured out how to achieve world peace 🙂

  5. 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.

  6. I can’t believe your friend made you buy the book. I think I will have to pick up a copy.

  7. 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.

  8. It is a tiny bit annoying, however it only takes a few more days from the US. I’ll definately be getting a copy.

  9. I don’t know why but I just don’t like buying things in a different currency when I’m not in the country. Makes me feel uneasy!

  10. 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….

  11. Seems this book is really helpful. Willing to buy my copy. BTW i like your second picture 🙂 your expression…..

  12. 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. 🙂

  13. 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!

  14. I looked for a download copy from Amazon but couldn’t find one. Would be great if it becomes available in download or as a audio book.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. Good News Darren!!

    I am waiting for mine to be delivered, will give it a little review on my site when I get the chance!

  19. 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.

  20. Maybe Mr. Shoemoney hasn’t been doing anything spectacular to get into the book? 😛

    You nkow I’m just messing.


  21. 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”.

  22. Global release has made it a big hit, otherwise being just in a few countries would have sucked!

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

  24. Yeah I am waiting for the Shoemoney Playbook ?
    Please include some nude pics too .

  25. Yes i agree with that .
    But i would be interested in reading shoemoney’s playbook .

  26. Thanks to the internet and international mail, this book should be pretty much available anywhere!

  27. I know what you mean – I used to feel like that, but it’s worth getting over it 🙂

  28. That’s good to know, thanks. I don’t know if I can’t wait that long though. I think I’ll order a copy from the US

  29. Heh that was some weird picture in the book that might have struck his eyes lol :p

  30. Based on the look of amazement on your face, I think it MUST be worth the money 😀

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. Форум о поисковой оптимизации

  34. Yep, I ordered a copy today myself. I’m also interested in the “picking a niche” section.



  35. Shoemoney Playbook is apparently coming out Spring 2008. I’m definitely looking forward to it!

  36. He was obviously referring to some form of kinky sex being a profitable niche and I am sure he had graphic pics…

  37. 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.

  38. 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…

  39. 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? 😉

  40. PayPal is quite safe, and a non-reputable site won’t be a vendor. You’ll be quite OK ordering the book via the internet.

  41. Sold out already (and Shoe your affil link has broke). Looks like the rich get richer, great work Darren, I’ve reserved my copy.

  42. Seems like the ebook has received great reviews.I have to buy it, hopefully it will be available soon again.

  43. […] shoemoney èita knjigu koju su napisali ProBlogger i Chris Garrett […]

  44. I hope you can give us your free make money online ebook like darren did. Thx.

  45. I’m sure the book is great, but I’m totally distracted by your beautiful kitchen 🙂

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

    And yes, your kitchen is awesome

  47. Does anyone else have an “Honest Review”, posted elsewhere besides shoe?

    I would consider buying it.

  48. are you saying shoe is not honest?

    just kidding, i’m also interested in other reviews before i buy

  49. 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.

  50. 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?

  51. 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.

  52. 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!

  53. 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…

  54. 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….

  55. My recommendation is to go and read some of their posts to determine their authority.

  56. Do they have this for Kindle? Not that I have one, but I thought that it’d be cool to read it on one. Kinda new-age book-reading for a Web 2.0 book.

  57. I had just thought that your mouth and eyes wide open on the picture is in great combination and rhythm. 🙂

  64. 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.
