David Risley has been blogging since 1998 and has created 2 6-figure businesses in the process.
His blog, Blog Marketing Academy, and its accompanying membership site, strives to help bloggers create platforms that are based on strong business fundamentals.
Unlike many of the other bloggers I’ve listed so far, David still writes most of his own blog posts. His 30 Day Blog Transformation Challenge is a great resource for learning blogging fundamentals like what goes into a good blog post and how to plan your editorial calendar.
“I believe that a blog is an extremely powerful marketing and money-making tool – especially in today’s marketing world – but the truth is that, in order for it to work, that blog has to be used in a strategic way. It has to be backed up with real business fundamentals. We do that by planting ourselves firmly in the middle… in that gap between blogging and business.”
