How to Start a Successful Blog (Also: WDS 2014 Tickets!)

A few years ago, I had a crazy idea to start a blog.

As time went by it slowly turned into a community, a business, a series of books and events, a tour to 150 cities (so far…) and so much more.

When people ask if I still recommend blogging, there’s an easy answer: YES!

When they ask how to do it, I say, just figure it out!

Wait… that’s probably not the best answer.

I recently made a new page to help people set up their first blog or website. This is one of the most common questions I encounter, especially from readers who stumble on 279 Days to Overnight Success, a manifesto from 2009 that is still fairly relevant.

If you’d like to learn how to set up a blog in 15 minutes or less, now there’s a page for it.

I’ll be adding to this page as people contribute questions and comments. If there’s something I can help with, let me know.


Also! WDS 2014 Tickets On Sale Tomorrow

WDS 2014 Bitches

As mentioned last week, tomorrow we’ll be offering the next round of tickets to WDS 2014.

After sending out the announcement of next week’s WDS 2014 ticket sales, I received a bunch of questions in my inbox, so I made another page with an attempt at providing answers. Check it out and you can learn about pricing, hotel availability, and—as they say—so much more.

I don’t want to clutter your own inbox, so unless you’re on the waiting list you won’t receive another email about it.

You can always check ticket inventory directly. Whatever info we have will be on that page.
