How to Get Lucky (in Life and Business)

I was in the right place at the right time back in 2002 when I started blogging and since that time serendipity has played a part in the building of my business.

Recently at the Inbound conference I spoke of my ‘lucky’ beginnings but also share some tips on how to cultivate ‘luck’ in your life by practicing 7 habits that I believe play a part.

Great list. I love the idea of crafting your perfect week. I'm worried my entire week would be spent at Docklands Library.

The 15th episode of the ProBlogger podcast is up on iTunes.

http://itunes.apple.com/podcast/problogger-podcast-blog-tips/id1012723880

I talk about my introversion, how I've discovered I need to work with other bloggers to improve my blogs (in many ways) and I challenge you to find a blogging buddy.

I also talk about 'breaking wind'.... you'll need to listen to find out why :-)

Listen in on iTunes or your favourite podcast listening app/tool.

Darren Rowse (ProBlogger)

Introduce yourself, your Podcast  - 
 
Greetings from a wintery Melbourne. On the suggestion of +Des Walsh I came over here this afternoon and have enjoyed reading the latest threads.

I started my first podcast this last few days after a lot of encouragement from my blog readers and friends.

It went live in iTunes over the weekend and will cover similar topics to those on my ProBlogger Blog which is a blog about how to build an income around your blog.

The podcast sites on our site at www.problogger.com/podcast

I'd LOVE any feedback or suggestions people have - I'm brand new at this and on a steep learning curve. Thanks all!

This post of yours really made me think. I really need to exercise and have sort of given up. Maybe you've just given me the boost I need.

Editor, Author and Speaker: Founder of ProBlogger and Digital Photography School
Introduction
Blogging was a medium that Darren Rowse stumbled upon by accident in 2002 as he was researching a new project - 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 his blogs.

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 many other blogs in the coming years.

These days Darren works mainly on two blogs - ProBlogger.net and Digital Photography School where he's also published a growing library of eBooks. He has also founded ProBlogger.com - a private educational community for bloggers.

He is also a co-founder of 'Third Tribe Marketing', 'b5media blog network' and the co-author of ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six Figure Income (Wiley).

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.

He also runs blogger training events in Australia.

He lives in Australia with his wife 'V' and 3 sons.

Another great restaurant from the same group as Maha and Press Club. I held my 40th birthday party here in one of the upper room sand am still getting guests tell me it was the best night out that they'd had in years (given... we are all parents of little kids and don't get out much... but it was great). The staff were attentive, the food was plentiful and delicious and the atmosphere was great. There was a hens party in the next room and we didn't hear a thing and all had a great time. We also eat regularly here and Shane and his team do a remarkable job.

It's always great to find a cafe that becomes your regular hang out - Jam for Joe has become that for me. You can find me there most mornings. The Coffee is great, the food is exceptional (the baked eggs is my favorite) and the service goes beyond friendly. It only took the staff 2 visits to know my name and order and when they installed Wi-Fi - they had me!
