Today, I'm excited to bring you guys a very special episode of BlogcastFM. Josh Hanagarne was the first blogger to ever appear on my Interviews with up and coming bloggers series. A few months back, I saw that he had sold his first book and knew it would be a perfect time to bring him back on the show (his first interview in this space was back in 2010) to hear about what he's been up to. Here are some highlights from our most recent chat:
  • How Josh Was Contacted by Seth Godin After Blogging for a Few Months 
  • The Multiple Rejections that Were Involved in Josh's Book Deal
  • Why Some Simple SEO Tweaks Can Dramatically Increase Your Traffic
  • Leveraging Speaking Opportunities to Get Word of Mouth Marketing
  • Why Experimentation is Essential to the Growth of Your Blog
  • How Josh Got an Extremely High Advance from His Publisher
  • An Incredible Compliment that Came from the Head of the Publishing Company
  • Some Key Insights to Developing Your Voice as a Writer
  • How Josh Made $30,000 in Revenue from His Blog
Josh Hanagarne blogs over at World's Strongest Librarian. He is an aspiring strongman, bookish nerd, twitchy guy with Tourette’s Syndrome, devoted family man, tearer of phonebooks, and humble librarian. Josh is a tall, thin paradox wrapped in thick glasses. You can follow him on twitter @joshhanagarne. If you liked this article, would you share it with your friends? Just click here to post it to Twitter. One of our goals for 2012 is to become a top 100 show in iTunes. We can get there with your help and it will enable us to improve the how and bring on even bigger guests. So if you can, we’d be really grateful if you write us a review in iTunes.
