Bloggers Face-Off

Daniel at Daily Blog Tips is doing a novel interview series at the moment called ‘Bloggers Face-Off’ where he asks two bloggers the same set of questions and puts them side by side.

I’m featured in the first one along side my virtual twin co-speaker at Elite Retreat Jeremy Schoemaker.

Apart from being fun I like Daniel’s idea because he didn’t make it too demanding for interviewees to participate. It’s a novel idea and one I think will work well for him particularly as he roles out more higher profile face-offs in the coming weeks.

    This was definitely a great idea. I can’t wait to see more!

    “I’m featured in the first one along side my virtual twin co-speaker at Elite Retreat Jeremy Shoemaker.”


    Surely, you mean Shoemoney and not Shoemaker? LOL.

  3. Enrique says:

    No, Darren wrote Schoemaker, with a C, which is Shoemoney’s real name.

  4. Indian says:

    Is there any plan to give out or post Elite Retreat videos on your site. Not the whole enchilada but just some useful tips for your users in video format?

  5. Maki says:

    Um. I know.

    It was “Shoemaker” when I made my comment. :)

  6. Darren, just want to thank you again for your participation. I am glad I managed to kick-off the face-off with you.

    Most of the stuff I learned from blogging was coming from so you can figure why!

  7. Darren Rowse says:

    Indian – no sorry there’s no plan for that. People are paying a lot to be there and to then give it away for free probably wouldn’t go down brilliantly with them.

  8. Darren Rowse says:

    PS: and yes I changed the spelling of Jeremy’s name – thanks for picking it up.


  9. Edward says:

    Nice to see big names facing off each other !

  10. Edward, its a face-off, but a friendly one! The purpose is to give people an interesting and funny reading rather than a competition.

  11. Shoemoney, “Would you use Black Hat SEO? It depends on what your definition of is is.”



  1. […] An intriguing concept from ProBlogger – Liked this idea. I like the way a lot of bloggers are starting to get more creative about the way they use and promote blogs. Maybe I will get round to doing something innovative sometime soon! […]

  2. […] Bloggers Face Off – Basically this guy is just getting random bloggers and squaring them off in a kind of battle. Even tho there is no poll or points being kept track its really pretty interesting. The first battle has Problogger Vs ShoeMoney! […]
