My good friend and fellow blogger, Darren Rowse, just released the 2nd edition of Problogger – Secrets for Blogging your way to a Six Figure income . If you have a copy of the first Problogger book, then you should enjoy the new edition.
I had bought the first edition in 2008 almost two years ago, blogging has see a lot of changes in the last two years. A lot of blogging strategies and traffic generating methods don’t exist any more due to the dynamics of the internet. Social media which hardly had any mention in the first edition is now one of the top traffic generating methods for bloggers.
According to Darren it’s not a complete rewrite, they have added enough new content to the second edition to make it worth buying.
Some of Probloggers new content includes:
– There have been many many small updates and changes throughout the book. New examples, screenshots, updates of new tools, a few deletions of references to old tools, an update to our stories in the intro etc.
– They’ve removed a chapter on blog networks – things have changed a lot in this space and many networks are not hiring any more or have changed their models significantly.
– The new edition has a fairly significant chapter on social media and how it impacts and can be used by bloggers
– Darren has also has added a case study chapter that goes through the first 4 years of his main blog – Digital Photography School. He work through how he launched it, what he focused upon in years 1-2 and then in years 3-4, how he monetize it and share the secrets to how he drive significant traffic and income through email newsletters, social media etc.
– Bonuses – they’re offering anyone who buys the book a series of bonuses (some interviews with successful bloggers, some extra teaching etc)
