Top 5 Reasons You Should Participate In Problogger Group Writing Projects
Written by George Manty · May 9, 2007
Here are the top 5 reasons that you should participate in Problogger Group Writing Projects:
1. You Can Win Prizes!
Darren Rowse offers great prizes in his group projects. For instance, this post is an entry into his latest group writing project, which makes me eligible to win 1001 dollars in cash.
2. You Can Meet New People
I have met quite a few bloggers by participating in Darren’s group writing projects. It is nice to meet new bloggers. Who knows, some of them may become close friends one day.
3. You Will Get Some Good Link Love
When you participate in a group writing project, Darren gives you two links from his blog. Additionally, other people tend to copy the list or write a post with their favorite entries, which can give you more link love.
4. It Gives You Extra Traffic
The link love goes hand in hand with the extra traffic. When you enter Darren’s project, you are bound to get a spike in traffic. While some of this traffic won’t ever return, some of it will. One of the first times I entered a group writing project of Darren’s, my regular readership went from 50 a day to 100 a day. Rather than being a one time spike it just continued to grow from there.
5. The FUN
It’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
