When I grow up, I want to be like Darren Rowse…
Darren Rowse started blogging in 2002 and began making a full-time income from it in 2005. While he has been involved in blogs focusing on a diverse range of topics over the years, his main blogs are now Problogger (321,000 readers) and Digital Photography School (around 986,000 readers). He earns money from blogging through advertising, affiliate links and selling products such as ebooks.
When Rowse released his ebook 31 Days to a Better Blog in 2009, he says it generated more than $70,000 in eight days. The conference, now in its third year, is Rowse’s initiative.
While Rowse is clearly an outlier (you certainly don’t come across people with his level of blogging success every day), others (including your’s truly) are following in his footsteps, albeit on a smaller scale.
