I’ve just been over to The InfoPreneur where I read his post, My Promise To You. In this post he’s outlined how he intends to conduct himself as a blogger, a lot of which I am in total agreement, many of which I’ve either posted about or left a comment on another blog.
His post got me to thinking about probloggers. To me a problogger is someone who has attained independence via his blog, enabling him to leave his day job so as to concentrate on his blogging full time. He is now a Professional Blogger. When thinking of probloggers I usually tend to think of a person who’s earning a six figure income, mainly because that’s what most of them tell you.
This six figure income is what attracts many people to the blogging in the first place. The thing is that all that money does not come from blogging alone. Many of these probloggers have over time built up huge mailing list which they use to sell products to their subscribers. I know this to be true because I subscribed to a few and then unsubscribed when all I got was solicitations to buy something that they were pushing.
So, why will I never achieve ProBlogger status?
No Email Lists
I have no, nor intend to ever acquire an email list for the sole purpose of peddling a product on my unsuspecting subscribers. I’m sick and tired of subscribing to a news letter or for some free eBook only to be hounded at a later date by useless spam emails trying to sell me something. I will not force on to someone else something that I find personally distasteful.
No Interaction With Commentators
I keep hearing from these guys that the reason they don’t interact with people who comment on their blogs is because they either don’t have the time or because there is no money in it. They believe there is more value in another content rich post than there is in interacting with commentators.
Personally I love that interaction, and if becoming a problogger means I have to lose that then I have no interest in becoming one.
So it looks like you guys are stuck with an Aussie blogger who doesn’t give a shit about reaching problogger status if that means that I have to compromise my standards in my effort to get there.
