In This Episode

Become A Blogger has changed a lot over the years, and it's about to go through some more changes.


However, before these changes are made, I wanted to share them with you and explain, in great detail, the heart behind the changes. I share things like:

  • How my passion for entrepreneurship was ignited.
  • My experience in Germany when I couldn't afford to buy food and what that story had to do with my vision for Become A Blogger
  • How last week's interview with Michael Stelzner is impacting the direction of Become A Blogger
  • What exactly my vision for Become A Blogger is
  • How do I plan on getting there
  • What's in it for you, and how you fit into the overall equation

If you've ever heard me be passionate about a topic, you ain't heard nothin yet (yep, I spelled it like that). So if you've benefited from Become A Blogger AT ALL in the past and care about the future of this community, I encourage you to listen in.


I mentioned on the podcast that I would make an announcement, but COMPLETELY forgot to actually make the announcement. I'm heading to Cincinnati, OH tomorrow for the Savvy Blogging Summit and will be doing a meetup on Sunday at 1pm EST. If you're in the area, check out the Facebook Event page so that we can connect there. I'd love to be able to connect with you in person.

Listener Questions

  • Pete, from All Jeeps For Sale called in to ask how he can increase SEO, create a sense of community and drive traffic to his classified website.
  • Both Kathy Strand from Lean Body Works and Warren Gibons from Salt Water Aquariums Explained called in to ask about the service I use to provide a hotline for you to call in and leave questions.

If you have a question that you'd like me to answer on the show, feel free to call the hotline at (888) 835 – 2414.

QUESTION: What should we call members of the BAB community? I'd love for it to be something that's “hashtagable” 😉
