Robert Walker Successful Blogger as a College Sophmore

In this Episode I talk to Robert Walker of TheBloggingshow and 4kblogging.  Robert started his blogging career at 15 years old with a guest post on his brother Chris’s website NoGym.net.  Robert also started his own blogs which have all had varying levels of success.  Robert really took his career to the next level when he was given the opportunity to revive the email list for TheBloggingShow.com.  TheBloggingShow focuses on teaching first time bloggers how to set up their blogs, how to get traffic, and how to plan their content creation strategy.

Currently Robert is running TheBloggingShow and taking a full course load as a second year engineering student.  He talks about the demands of having a blog to run while going to school.  The information Robert shares is especially applicable to anyone that is thinking about getting into blogging part time as he has had to deal with a tremendous amount of pressure being individually responsible for the performance of TheBloggingShow.
