My name is Darren Rowse and I’m the guy behind ProBlogger. You can read a little more about my journey of blogging on the About ProBlogger page – but let me take a moment to give you a bit of glimpse at who I am.
I’m a 35 year old Australian living in Melbourne. I am married to ‘V’ and together we have a son, born in 2006. I am a full time blogger making a living from the medium since 2004/5.
I’ve been blogging since November 2002 on a number of sites. I started out with just one at Livingroom – a site about Spirituality, Pop Culture, Life in Australia and miscellaneous topics that take my fancy from time to time. That site spawned a number of others which you can read about here.
I am also one of the founders of b5media – a blog network where I’m the VP of Training.
You might think working on such a variety of blogs would fill my life up – not true. I have a number of other ‘hats’ in life that I work on including:
- blog consulting – I have recently started taking on some work with businesses wanting to explore how blogging can enhance their products and services.
- speaking – I regularly speak at conferences, workshops, retreats on a variety of topics including blogging, new media, spirituality, leadership, community development.
- community – being on the leadership team of a small alternative emerging Christian community, called LivingRoom – I started LivingRoom a couple of years ago and find it to be an enriching part of my life.
- Teleclass – I am also currently involved in running a six week course for bloggers titled Six Figure Blogging which looks at entrepreneurial blogging.
As you’ll be able to tell from my blogs, I’m a photography nut and love getting out and about with my DSLR. I’m also an avid reader, enjoy good food and wine and love a movie.
I hope that’s given a glimpse of who Darren Rowse is. If you’re a blogger and want to improve your blog then I’d love to keep in touch.
