Merry Christmas from ProBlogger HQ

It’s just ticked over to the early hours of Christmas Day here at ProBlogger HQ in Melbourne Australia, so I wanted to pause the blog tips today to wish you and yours a happy holiday season.

Here in Australia we’re expecting a pretty warm Christmas – around 30 degrees celcius – and will no doubt celebrate the day in shorts and t-shirts and eating our BBQ’d Christmas lunch outside by the pool (we really do throw shrimps on the BBQ).


I’ll be celebrating with Vanessa, our three boys, and extended family and feeling very grateful for another healthy and happy year.

I’m also particularly grateful to you as readers of ProBlogger and hope that whatever you find yourself doing as the end of the year approaches that it’ll be safe, fun and meaningful to you and those you love.

PS: things will be slightly quieter here than normal this next week as we’re in Summer mode but we’ll be firing up again in the new year and will have some exciting things to announce as we progress into 2014. Stay tuned – things are about to get pretty interesting here at ProBlogger!

    You made me and my girlfriend laugh this morning.
    We are from Canada so our Christmas always been white and cold. She told me stories of when she live in Australia, of people going to the beach for “BBQ christmas”, with the kids playing in the water while the parents stay in the shade and drink.

    It seems surreal to me.

    Merry Christmas to everyone! :-)

    I just recently found your site but I am definitely glad I did.

    I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas as well. I hope 2014 is another healthy and happy year for you and you accomplish everything you want to accomplish.

    I am from North Alabama. We are having a little more winter than usual, little colder, mostly rain. We may see some snow around Jan, Feb, or March.

    I have traveled a fair amount but haven’t been overseas since Desert Storm. I have yet to make it to Australia, but it is on my list. There are quite a few places I would love for my family to see.

    I hope you and your family enjoy the New Year coming in.

    Thanks for all the solid content on your blog.

    Scott Moore

  27. Merry Christmas to you as well, Darren!

    I think Ima buy the “The Copywriting Scorecard” book, I really suck at writing my posts and scoring them. Been getting alot of client requests for guest posting services and my weakness at the moment is writing the content. Thanks for the posts, its quite helpful to find so many resources under one roof.

    Merry Christmas to all blogger and their family and Happy New Year .
