Want to join Darren Rowse and me for a day of blogging talk?
Or maybe going to World Domination Summit and getting in a day early?
I’m thrilled to be able to share that Darren Rowse and Chris Guillebeau have arranged a ProBlogger training day in Portland Oregon on Thursday 10 July. They invited me along because I guess Darren would be lonely or something?
The day will be called the ProBlogger Academy and it’s being run as part of Chris Guillebeau’s World Domination Summit.
This will be a rare opportunity for people outside Australia to see Darren in action – he was a huge hit last year at WDS and this year at Authority Intensive – plus you get both Darren and me in the same room at the same time!
Tickets are limited and given their price they could go quickly. If you’re a WDS attendee they are just $29 USD and if you’re not a WDS ticket holder they’re still a bargain at $49 USD!
We can now announce that joining us on stage will be some of our favourite people including:
- Pat Flynn – from Smart Passive Income
- Tsh Oxenreider – from The Art of Simple
- Jeff Goins – from Goins, Writer
- Chris Ducker – blogger, author and podcaster
- Pamela Slim – author of Escape from Cubicle Nation and Body of Work
I am sure you will agree this is fantastic value, which begs the question …
Why so inexpensive?
No, there will be no pitches:
- we wanted to make this as accessible for as many people as possible (well, people who can make it to Portland)
- we’re doing this as a part of the larger WDS event and they’re a non-profit (crazy, but true)
Darren and I are involved simply because we love WDS, we love Chris Guillebeau (don’t tell him, he has a big enough ego as it is, ha!), and we want to give a little something back. Also it’s a nice way to hang out with friends and meet new ones.
The day runs from 9am-4pm (although we’ll stop for breaks along the way) and we hope to have a couple of special guests along to be involved in the teaching.
We’ll cover our main 4 ‘pillars’ of blogging:
- Creating Killer Content
- Finding Readers
- Building Community
We’ll cover the all of this in a practical, “do this because it works” way rather than rah rah motivational fluff. You’ll come home with a head full of ideas. There will be plenty of time to explore other topics as we always include opportunity for Q&A. We have both learned a great deal in the last year that we can’t wait to share with you.
Looking forward to seeing you in person. Darren has promised a free hug to the first 400 attendees …
