Interview: The Agile Scout, Peter Saddington

One of the neat things that I get to do weekly is read about stories of success from a number of you who are already taking your blogs to the next level! Unfortunately, these stories don’t get the airtime and exposure that they need, so I’m going to do something about it.

I’m going to try to spend more time interviewing people within our community (and outside) who are doing great things with their blogs so that we can all benefit from their experience as new bloggers, tentbloggers, and probloggers!

So here’s the first one:

Some Highlights:

You’re not going to want to miss this first interview because Peter, The Agile Scout, has experienced some phenomenal growth of his blog and in less than 2 months!

  • Until about 6 weeks ago he had never blogged! He started from scratch!
  • He now has over 4,000 RSS readers and Twitter followers!
  • He has successfully brokered 3 direct sales for advertising and is now financially in the “black”!
  • He has been asked to be the select Live Blogger at one of the largest conferences for his content coverage!
  • And more.

You’re definitely going to want to see what he’s doing and learn from some of his strategies. You can follow him on Twitter here: @AgileScout
