To say that Darren Rowse is one of Australia’s leading bloggers is an understatement.
In September 2005, he co-founded b5media, with fellow bloggers Jeremy Wright, Shai Coggins and Duncan Riley, a blog network that now has over 300 blogs.
In 2006, he was awarded the Best Web Development Weblog Bloggie for his personal blog, ProBlogger, which in May this year was listed as number two on Technorati’s most favorited blogs list and number 40 on its most linked to blog list.
Not so long ago, Rowse embarked on a blog series called, ’31 Days to Build a Better Blog’. It’s now available in an eBook and has already been used by over 19,000 people wanting to revitalise their web marketing.
This is, without doubt, one of the most effective tools for successful blogging that we have come across – featuring a task to do every day for 31 days.
Each day in the project contains:
- A Task – something to DO that day.
- Teaching – each day you’ll be given great instruction on both the WHY and HOW of the task of the day.
This two pronged approach is designed so that you come away from the challenge having not only learned how to build a dynamic a blog but you’ll have actually done something with the knowledge.
This is what Cool Company Award finalist Yvonne Adele (aka Ms Megabyte) had to say.
“In the first day, I implemented 4 days worth of advice from the workbook and tripled my blog traffic overnight. Yes, really. Every day I read and implemented another few day’s worth of advice from the workbook and it has steadily improved my blog traffic without fail.” Yvonne Adele
How to Use the Workbook
While originally designed for bloggers to work through over a month – the feedback that we’ve been hearing from bloggers indicates that 31DBBB is being used in a variety of ways including:
- Intense Training – bloggers setting aside weekends or weeks to go through multiple tasks at once
- 1 Task a Day – the way we designed it – one day at a time
- 1 Task a Week – bloggers taking their time with the challenge and making the tasks week long tasks
- Monthly Cycle – bloggers using the tasks again and again each month as a monthly routine for their blogging.
- Occasional Inspirational Resource – bloggers dipping into 31DBBB on a more occasional basis – using it on days when they have time or lack inspiration.
The great thing about 31DBBB is that you can do it at your own pace and in your own way.
Who is this Workbook for?
31 Days to Build a Better Blog is for bloggers at different stages of their blogging including:
- those who have just started a blog but who don’t know what to do next
- those who have had a blog for a while but it’s stalled in its growth
- bloggers with bloggers block and lacking inspiration
This workbook is NOT designed for bloggers yet to start a blog (PreBloggers). It doesn’t cover setting up a blog. If that’s you check out Rowse’s ProBlogger book.
By the end of the 31 Days you’ll have:

“The workbook was a total success, I used it on one of my blogs that wasn’t performing very well, used the practices and exercises and the results speak for themselves. From 100 visitors a month to now over +1,300 and going.” – Obed Ward
“The book is also a godsend when I get writers block as I just get it up on the screen and look through it. I invaribly find that I have inspiration after a few minutes.” – Tessa Shepperson
“I value your workbook because it sells no false dreams of instant wealth, no magic mantra to make us the best that we can be. I love it that you stress the importance of hard work, persistence, and humility. This workbook is brilliant in so far as we’re willing to incorporate these solid virtues as well as the valuable, practical blogging lessons it contains.” Jan Geronimo
“The biggest help for me was having some concrete action step each day to take on my blog. Many of the concepts and material were not new to me, but I need that daily shove to do the things I know.” – John Arnold
