Darren Rowse's Summary

Blogging was a medium that Darren Rowse stumbled upon by accident in 2002 after following a link in an email from a friend - little did he know that just 18 months later he'd be one of the world's first professional bloggers and making a living from blogging.

Out of writing a popular personal blog that covered everything from politics, to religion, to cultural observations Darren launched Digital Photography Blog in 2003. This quickly became a commercial success and the launching pad for numerous other blogs in the coming years.

Today Darren works on two blogs - Problogger.net, Digital-Photography-School.com which are read by over 5 million visitors per month.

Previously Darren also co-founded numerous businesses including 'Third Tribe Marketing' and 'b5media blog network'. He also co-authored 'ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six Figure Income' (Wiley) and founded the ProBlogger Training Event in Australia - attended annually by over 500 Australian bloggers.

Darren also consults world wide with bloggers and companies interested in the medium, speaks on the topic of blogging and new media and is regularly featured in articles and interviews in both online and off-line media.

Specialties: Blogging, Social Media, Photography.
