A Quick Note about the Next Week at ProBlogger

Posted By Darren Rowse 13th of September 2009 ProBlogger Site News 85

Over the next week (potentially the next week and a half) ProBlogger will be in ‘guest blogging mode’.

Tomorrow morning I’m heading into a local hospital for a small procedure on my wrist which will leave my left hand out of action for a week or two.

It’s not carpal tunnel or RSI (I’m told it’s nothing to do with typing all day every day) and it’s unlikely to be anything serious. I’ll attempt to write a fuller post at some point on my personal blog about the experience.

As a result I’ve invited a small group of bloggers to take over the reins here at ProBlogger over the coming week and a bit.

Their posts will be a mixture of normal guest posts on assorted topics as well as a few ‘interviews’ with successful bloggers who have unpacked one post on their blog that has had huge traffic (telling us how it happened and what they learned through the experience).

Apart from tomorrow and possibly Tuesday I’ll be hovering (one handed) in the background, particularly on Twitter and I might even pop in for a live video streaming post during the week.

Lara will also be here moderating comments and looking after any potential problems so if you need anything urgent shoot her a Tweet.

So if I don’t see you around in the mean time – I’ll hopefully see you again in 7-10 days! Have a great week!

  3. Here’s hoping for a good and speedy recovery! :)

  4. Hope the surgery goes well. Maybe I can write another guest post while you are out of commission.

  5. I wish I could write a guest post here in ProBlogger. Well, in fact I can, but for sure problogger won’t accept that. :(

    Wishing Darren a very good luck. Don’t be afraid Darrnen, I guess the surgery won’t hurt you. ;)

  6. Hey Darren,

    I wish and pray that your surgical procedure goes well and you get well soon.

    Waiting for ya to come back to blogging ways!

  8. My thoughts and prayers are with you Darren. Take the time you need to recuperate.

  12. Darren,

    I hope all goes well with your procedure and that you are back on your keyboard very soon. I am sure you are leaving us in good hands with your guest bloggers.

    Take Care!

  13. Best wishes for a quick recovery! I had surgery at the beginning of the year for CTS release and ganglian cyst removal and had to wear a bandage for 10 days . . . if you want to see some of what I documented about the surgery, check out the post-op post here:

    Don’t know what surgery you’re having but I was able to slowly use the computer 1 day after the surgery . . . I actually had the surgery on a Wednesday and went back to work on the following Monday, still wearing the brace! I couldn’t write by hand at all with the brace on though . . .

    Good luck!

  14. You will be back soon Darren.

  15. wishes for your better and earlier recovery of wrist surgery.
    And hope Problogger will still be interesting with the guest posts.

  16. I hope everything goes well Darren and look forward to when you’re back to blogging again – full strength! I always enjoy what you have to say :) Take care.

    Have a safe procedure and a brief healing. =)

  25. Darren, I hope that your hospital procedure goes smoothly and you can recover well. This may present an opportunity for a mini-vacation from blogging and spending more time with family and friends. Get well soon!

  26. Here’s to a speedy recovery! Get some rest, read some books, enjoy your time off <3

  27. Ganglion Cyst? I had one.
    Hey I just got your book in the mail Darren, can’t wait to read it from cover to cover.
    good luck with the surgery mister…

  28. Wishing you a speedy recovery. While i am sure your guest bloggers will be great, we will miss you

  29. Wish you a speedy recovery, hope it all goes well and you recover quickly.

  30. Oh wow, that is a great news. Problogger will accept more guest, maybe I could try once. If I could publish a guest post on Problogger, all my friends will be jealous me to be dead.

  31. Wish you will be recovered from the surgery soon and hope to see you in full strength soon.

  32. Get well soon! Good luck!

    I was wondering if you could do a post on nofollow attribute.
    Apparently Technorati does not identify the no follow attribute that i have put on my links and gives credit to everyone!

    I am very confused whether ‘no follow’ on individual links is enough or I will have to add the no follow plugin for wordpress.. which does the meta tag work ..and all outbound links become no follow…that’s not nice at all!

  33. Best of luck for your procedure, Darren.

  34. get well soon!

  35. Best wishes.

    We’re all typing too much. So make sure you take breaks and mind your ergonomic position.
    Waiting until it hurts is the wrong time to fix carpal tunnel or rsi problems.
