Regular readers of ProBlogger will be familiar with Leo Babauta who has written several guest posts for me on this blog. In fact Leo is a serial guest poster and has consistently produced great content on numerous blogs for some time now – as well as on his own blog Zen Habits – a blog about many things including productivity and organization, simplicity, happiness and health.
Leo has managed to build his blog to be very successful in many ways. He’s got over 21,000 subscribers, is currently 61 on Technorati’s Top 100 and has an Alexa ranking of around 12,000 already (pretty good considering it’s age of around 6 months).
Anyway – onto the reason for my post.
Leo has released an ebook
Leo has just emailed me to let me know that he’s taken the monetization of his blog in a new direction – he’s released an ebook called Zen to Done (the ultimate simple productivity system).
Leo describes his ebook as follows:
“Zen To Done takes some of the best aspects of a few popular productivity systems (GTD, Stephen Covey and others) and combines them with the mandate of simplicity. It makes things as simple as possible, and no more.”
I am excited about this ebook for a couple of reasons.
Firstly – it’s a great read and right on topic for me as not only a ‘Pro’ Blogger but a very ‘Disorganized’ Blogger. I’ve started reading it already and on what I’ve already read have set aside some time tomorrow to read the rest – I think I need this book!
Secondly – I’m fascinated to see how the release of this ebook goes for Leo. At $9.50 USD it’s very affordable and with a readership (and influence) as wide as Leo’s I think he’s got the potential with the release of Zen to Done to rake up significant sales.
The key will be to see whether he’s able to convert those 20,000+ subscribers into paying customers. Definitely one to watch! I’ll attempt to get an interview with Leo in the coming days to see if we can get a little more info on how it’s gone for him.
