Darren Rowse, on his Problogger blog, created a series called 31 Days to a Better Blog. The response to that was so enthusiastic that he turned it into an e-book. (That’s a book in pdf format that you download and read with Adobe Acrobat or other pdf reader.) The e-book is in a workbook type format, so you can print out each page and write your notes on it. You will have plenty of notes to write, as his teaching is clear and helps you brainstorm new ideas for posts.
Bonuses available for a limited time
The e-book sells for $19.95, but Darren has thrown in 3 bonuses as way to encourage you to get the new year off to a good start in your blog.
The bonuses are:
- A report by the name of 9 Things to Do to Get Your Blog On Track for the New Year – essentially it is a 9 day extension of the 31 Day workbook. It contains 9 extra tasks, particularly designed for the new year. (I personally found this very helpful.)
- 55 minute podcast with Leo Babauta from ZenHabits.net – this podcast is rich with tips on how Leo has launched his blogs and leveraged them to sell successful e-books and a best selling book.
- 45 minute podcast interview with Neil Patel from Quicksprout.com – another practical podcast with Neil on how to drive traffic to blogs as well as tips on personal branding, SEO and more.
The extra content is a bit under 2 hours of audio and an extra 9 days of teaching and exercises – it is a content rich bonus offer on top of the existing 1 hour Question and Answer podcast that he’s already been offering.
The bonus offers are only available when you order the book by 11pm Eastern time on Monday, January 18, 2010. (If you order the book through my blog I will get a modest commission.)

It seems to me you don’t have anything to lose.
