  6. LiveCrunch says:

    Ok , back at you after reading those interview questions!

    I think that Guy created heall of a questions there, in hundreds of interviews I have seen in my life I have never seen such questions ask at least in that way. I don’t know if you noticed or not but he went behind the blogging.

    And you have answered them very professionally.

    Great Read for today!

  14. Great interview Darren. I never knew you were based in Melbourne until now. I have started a cricket blog in Melbourne that’s in its infancy but building a readership is a very slow process. Maybe I’m asking the wrong person as I’m not really a problogger . . .

    In such a competitive field such as cricket in which traditonal media have a such greater plethora of content and footage and what is my best way to grow?

    Currently I’m just using analysis and opinion. It’s still early days i guess.

    Very insightful once more Darren
