Fresh off the press, I got news that Darren Rowse, AKA ProBlogger (or Gold Blogger as Yanik Silver likes to call him) is about to launch the next Writing Project, and it could be as early as next week.
I’d been asking him about the Writing Project when we were talking in October (as he was msging from a beach cafe while on vacation) (see: Talking with Darren Rowse – ProBlogger.net).
The project is finally here and participating in the last project brought a massive traffic spike to this blog, plus a number of the visitors have gone on to be regular readers too.
Besides the traffic, Darren’s also doing a random drawing of winners to receive prizes.
Prizes? Are they decent? Some might ask.
How does a week’s stay at a villa in Costa Del Sol, Spain (valued at 1,000 Euros) sound?
Ok, I’m showing my techie tendencies by hankering after the $200 Amazon voucher instead.
Nonetheless, Darren’s opening slots for the 10 sponsored prizes and if you’re a sponsor you can expect a number of hits on your page too.
In case you’re wondering about Writing Project sponsor benefits and Darren’s blog stats, he states:
- Sponsors will receive links in every post on the project during the week that it runs (last time I think this was on about 7 posts).
- Last project just under 350 bloggers participated and many more read the pages associated with the project.
- Most participants linked to pages with the sponsors listed. Some of these bloggers linked not only to the project but to the sponsors of it directly.
- ProBlogger is read by 5000 daily readers via the blog and another 8000 via itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s feeds.
