My 2010 Blogs Watch

Problogger, Darren Rowse

Who is your mentor? Blogger Darren Rowse has really inspired me to become a blogger from the moment I grabbed his book at the library. He has been my go-to guy for advice. I really appreciate what he has done for this community, by sharing all his wisdom about blogging in a really down-to-earth way; it helps non-technical people like me understand this craft.

Darren Rowse, Australian born blogger, was, among other things, a  minister in his home town of Melbourne. He started blogging on a site called LivingRoom and moved on from there to start many blogs, including most known Problogger and went on to co-start b5media.

His blog is on Technorati as one of the top 100 blogs. He really kicks-ass in his community. And I am sure 2010 will be full of great content and surprises too.

Entrepreneurs-Journey, Yaro Starak

The way I came  about Yaro Starak Blog was through Darren Rowse. I am not sure if it was through his book or his blog. Anyway he really does connect with his readers and always is pumping out some killer content out there. Very unique and useful stuff that is easy to apply to your niche or blog.

Yaro Starak is definitely another guy that can help you succeed at whatever niche you are trying to dominate through his amazing, not only personal, but blogging skills. At entrepreneurs-journey.com you can find always great content about how to become a successful blogger for free. He does have his special Blog Mastermind program that everyone should do if you really want to become an authority.

The 4 Hour Work Week, Tim Ferriss

In one of my typical visits to the library I saw a killer book tittle too hard to ignore. The 4-Hour Workweek: Expanded and Updated, With Over 100 New Pages of Cutting-Edge Content.This could have not come in a better time. I had been working 80 hours a week to make a lousy $700 a week.  I did not think it was possible.

Tim is a blogger and lifestyle designer. Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Business People of 2007.” The book hit #1 in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and was also a BusinessWeek bestseller. The 4-Hour Workweek has been written and sold in 35 different languages. Are you tired of the 9-5 lifestyle? Check him out at Four Hour Work Week.

I found him by mistake. I was really attracted to the book cover at Borders one night while at the mall. I had no idea this was going to be anything related to the web. Of course, I was wrong.

Gary has really crushed it! this year through all his speeches around the globe and the web. His blogs are really great for entertainment and motivation, but more importantly, knowledge.

His accomplishments so far are great. These include Vaynermedia, his business about building brand equity, and not to mention the 7 figure book deal with Harper Studio, releasing his best-selling Crush It!. And all the many mentions and television appearances. This guy is killing it!

Gary has given many bloggers something something to aspire to. Knowing him, he’ll give us even more next year.

I think he is a character and it is hard not to like him. Through his daily tips on blogging, I have been able to follow a guide, and it’s nice to be guided through something that you have no idea of. As an amateur blogger, I have to say he has made everything quiet simple for me to understand.

He really has help me understand more how to make money online and he can do that for you too.

Well I think that is all for now. I do think there are other blogs that are great out there and deserve some attention like mine…maybe? who knows? That we will find out with time and sweat equity. If you have a blog watch, please don’t be so selfish to share it.
