Want to See My Two New Blogging Projects?

Over the last 24 hours I’ve launched two new projects – both are blogging related.

I’m not sure why they’ve both come at once – I wasn’t planning on doing either at all even 36 hours ago – but sometimes ideas hit me in groups. Here they are – I hope one or both interest you:

1. @ProBloggerDeals

problogger-deals.pngProBlogger Deals is a new Twitter account where I’ll be tweeting out deals for bloggers. I’ve written more about the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of it here – but in short it’s a place where I’ll be sharing promotions, deals, discounts, bonuses, coupon codes (and more) for bloggers.

I don’t think that this will be everyone’s cup of tea – but it’s an attempt to pass on more of the offers that come my way that I don’t pass on here on ProBlogger – simply because there are so many of them.

Two Launch Deals

  • The first ‘deal’ that we’ve got is an exclusive to ProBlogger readers – 30% off the Ninja Affiliate Plugin for WordPress – a very useful plugin that many ProBlogger readers use to help with their affiliate marketing.
  • The second deal is a $20 Discount on any of the licenses at WP Review Site – another great plugin that turns WordPress into a powerful review site engine.

In the coming days I’ll be releasing other ProBlogger Deals including discounts on blogging themes, training resources and more discounts and trial offers on paid tools and plugins.

2. DarrenRowse.com

I’ve been planning to develop this URL for a while now but have never quite gotten around to it. However of late I’ve had many instances where I’ve wanted to write something a little more personal or reflective and didn’t think it was appropriate to do it here on ProBlogger or on one of my other blogs.

One example of this is my launch post on darrenrowse.com – Who Else Wants to Change a Child’s Life? It’s a post telling the story of a need that I came across through a friend – a class of children who have a total of 4 books between them and a request for people to consider a donation to help buy them some books – I hope you can help me with it.

I’m not sure where this new blog will end up – but I know it’ll be a more personal journey. You can read a little more about my thinking behind starting this new blog here.

  1. Personal blog, I love reading rambling of bloggers, anyway, I will be looking forward for your post in your new blog.

  2. Twitter Tips says:

    I really like the @ProBloggerDeals idea.. It will helps us a lot by keeping us up to date with the latest blogging deals, and since you’re the guy who’s managing it, I have no doubt that people will benefit from it!

    Also I like your new blog :) It’s quite awsome, I’m also thinking to start such a personal blog soon.

  3. Awesome news, Darren.

    Deals, of course, are good. But getting to know you better would be really great!

  4. Writer Dad says:

    Darren Rowse dotcom sounds awesome. I always like the personal a bit better. (or even a lot better)

  5. Browser Game says:

    I was wondering how long would it take for a DarrenRowse.com. :-)

    Kudos for that!

  6. andrew says:

    There’s nothing more frustrating than reading personal blogs scattered between informational blogs at some of my favorite sites. I mean, when I have time I’d love to learn more about my favorite bloggers – but when I’m looking for information, that stuff is just noise.

    Separating your content to different domains is a move in the right direction. I hope you start a huge trend. You probably will.

  7. That’s fantastic! Thrilled to hear about your new projects, they sound brilliant! :)

  8. Mikes says:

    Hi Darren,

    I am particulary happy for darrenrowse.com. With me knowing that you’re a Christian like me, I really want to know you more this time on a more personal level. I’ll surely be subscribing to that site as well.

    I think that’s a good move.

  9. Kayla says:

    Already following @ProBloggerDeals! Both are great new projects, I’ll be keeping up with them both.

    The personal blog is exciting, I’m looking forward to getting to know you better though it!

  10. _JD_ says:

    Will follow the new Twitter account and stay tuned.

    Cheers

    JD

    P.S.
    What about a blog that teaches us how to manage and maintain 42 blogs, 2 kids, staff, fans, personal passions and always look like you just swallowed a spiritual chill pill!

  11. Debo Hobo says:

    WOW!!! You’ve just launch these sites and already you have a strong following. Success begets success! :)

  12. Asswass says:

    Hey Darren did you had to buy the domain for your name from someone else or it wasn’t taken?

    Are you going to also write daily on those blog? If so, how do you do it :)

  13. Asswass says:

    Ohhhh I just read on your blog that you had that domain for some years now.

  14. Good luck with your new projects. I am following you on twitter and subscribe to your new blog.

  15. Mike says:

    I am sure I will be able to get some use out of ProBloggerDeals. Can’t wait!

  16. All the best. It impressed me that you stay innovative.

  17. The empire grows! Congrats Darren. There are two very smart extensions of your brand.

  18. Ryan Freed says:

    Good luck on your new ventures. I am impressed as well that you are staying innovative.

  19. Ryan Freed says:

    Good luck on your new ventures. I am impressed as well that you are staying innovative.

  20. Good luck Darren, I think you will make these projects into a success also!

  21. Jim Gaudet says:

    Finally a personal domain.. Hmm, I am starting with my personal before coming out with other domains..

    But this domain is great, so your personal one will be great from the start!

  22. Josh says:

    Hi Darren,

    I think I fall into the camp of liking both.

    @ProBloggerDeals sounds like a fantastic idea – I’ve followed.
    DarrenRowse.com – It’s great to see a place where you can express your more personal side. I’ve subscribed.

    Cheers,
    Josh

  23. Money-Era says:

    Great ideas! Congrats! I am signing up right now :-)

  24. Good idea to diversify.

  25. robert says:

    You have a lot of blogs to manage now, so kiss your free time goodbye buddy.

    Cheers!

  26. Denny Sugar says:

    I don’t know where you find the time Darren! But seriously congrats on firing up the personal blog. You’ve inspired me to do the same today. (If the DNS ever propagates!)

  27. Ching Ya says:

    Having a personal blog would be a good idea in this case. Not just about the rambling, but thoughts, charitable act that could involve your readers to lend a helping hand.. And I think it’s truly a good way to give back. Will be following your new blog.

    social media/blogging

  28. The problogger deals twitter account is a good idea.

  29. People love to read about famous people! I am sure that this blog will be another of your successes.

  30. Ryan says:

    Always wondered when you would officially launch a personal blog – glad to see you’re doing it such a positive light.

    You have such an awesome platform to do all sorts of good in the world – congrats!

  31. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    I do enjoy reading established blogger’s personal blog, you’ll be in my reading list Darren! Anyway, probloggerdeals in twitter is a good idea, I’ve followed you! Keep us updated the best deals!

    Regards,
    Lee

  32. Cool new projects. I’ll be following @ProBloggerDeals and reading darrenrowse.com :).

  33. Charles says:

    I think blogs that combine information with personal stuff can work well too, like John Chow and Shoemoney. But I agree it’s a wise move to shift your personal content since you have been a pure information based blogger all along.

  34. Hi Darren,

    Thank you for connecting us with probloggerdeals @ twitter. I will indeed follow you @twitter. And most especially I was touched by http://www.darrenrowse.com/who-else-wants-to-change-a-childs-life; even in the midst of all your internet success I am glad that you haven’t forgotten the most important things in life.
    More success to you!!!!

  35. Michael says:

    Two new projects in 24 hours?

    My, you are getting quite ambitious there Darren!

  36. ITrush says:

    Wow, that’s really cool Darren.. More power to you and to your new blog.

  37. Hey Darren, thanks for sharing your personal blog. It will be a great way to connect with the man behind problogger. I recently registered my domain of my own name, http://celestinechua.com, and decided to make it the domain for my personal development business anyway. It’s easier to brand my identity directly due to the kind of work I do (1-1 coaching) and so far it’s working pretty great.

  38. iPhone 3GS says:

    Good luck Darren.
    Hope will success

  39. Good stuff, Darren. I like the @ProBloggerDeals the most… anything to help out bloggers pay less is fine by me. :)

  40. fas says:

    Pretty fast you set it up Darren. The new site is sweet.

  41. Fazreen says:

    I thought you don’t have a personal blog but I’m wrong.

  42. Great idea! I’ll definitely check them out.

  43. JustLoveMe says:
