Problogger, Darren Rowse, renown as Australia's #1 blogger and most influential Twitter user, talks about his life experience and interests that lead him to a successful online career at the first annual Media Talks event.
Media Talks is a free Media Careers Panel with Australia's broadcasters, journalists, producers and social media experts.
This event took place on August 30th at Melbourne's Rokeby Studios. 160 students were selected from over 200 applicants to hear industry experts talk and take questions about the media industry.
In 2002 Darren started his first ever blog -- not knowing that what would start as a personal hobby site would grow into a full time profession and give him the opportunity to speak with millions of people each month.
Since that time Darren has been involved in publishing over 30 blogs but now is active on two as founder and editor:
- Digital-Photography-School.com -- photography tips, camera reviews and photoshop tutorials
- ProBlogger.net -- a blog teaching others how to build successful blogs
These two blogs are read by around 5 million unique visitors a month. Together they have over 300,000 forum members and 1,000,000 subscribers and several hundred thousand social media followers.
Darren has published 14 eBooks, co-authored the best selling ProBlogger the Book, has co-founded numerous companies and runs the popular ProBlogger Training Conference in Australia.
