About the author (2008)

Darren Rowse is the guy behind, which has become one of the leading places on the Web for information about making money from blogs. He is a full-time blogger himself, making a six-figure income from blogging now since 2005. In addition to his blogging at ProBlogger, Darren also edits the popular Digital Photography School, as well as numerous other blogs. Darren is one of the founders of b5media, a blog network with hundreds of blogs across numerous different verticals, including business, sport, entertainment, style and beauty, and technology. Darren’s role at b5media is VP of Blogger Training. Darren lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife Vanessa, son Xavier, and soon-to-be-born baby. In his spare time he’s a mad photographer and has an interest in emerging forms of church and spirituality.

Chris Garrett is a writer, Internet marketing consultant, and, of course, professional blogger. As well as his own blog,, he writes for many sites, including the Blog Herald, FreelanceSwitch, CopyBlogger, and even occasionally ProBlogger. He lives in the U.K. with his wife, Clare, his daughter Amy, his brand-new puppy, Benji, and his two overweight cats, Casper and Tigger, though would very much like to move to Vancouver, Canada, if any readers happen to carry a magic wand. When he is not at the computer (rare) you can bet he is out taking mediocre pictures with his digital camera.
