Thord Hedengren who did a wonderful job with BloggerTalks.com, a blog exclusively focusing on interviews with other bloggers has moved on to greener pastures. Guess who has taken his place? Me.
Each week will feature a new interview. These interviews will mostly be text based but don’t be surprised to see an audio interview mixed in as well. This is a cool position for me because I enjoy interviewing people as I treat interviews as one on one opportunities to learn. I’m a curious guy who always has a series of questions to ask and although mainstream media loves to ask softball type questions, I’ll ask any question I see fit.
So far, I am making an average of $1,200 – $1,400 per month of blogging income. This is almost as much as I made working full time at the grocery store with the exception that the grocery store provided medical benefits. Something bloggers don’t tend to get unless you work for a major blogging network or corporation.
Starting November 1st, I’ll be working weekends only at the grocery store and will be using the time during the week to pump out content on the sites I write for and try to make even more money in this game known as blogging.

Congrats Jeff – it’s really good to see a fellow blogger reaching goals they have set for themselves and enjoying it while they do
Awesome news Jeff! I wasn’t familiar with BloggerTalks.com, but I added you to my feed reader. Looking forward to some good interviews!
Nice to see WordPress Weekly back too! I’m hoping to join in on the show sometime soon.
Congrats on the new job. You follow a list of great folks who have worked hard to build up BloggerTalks. Good luck and good podcasting!
Like Brad, I hadn’t heard of BloggerTalks.com but I will check it out now. I’m glad you’re able to reduce the hours at the store, here’s to you going full time as a blogger in the near future!
Thank you all for your continued support. I really appreciate it.
As a side note, it’s been requested that the information regarding how much a position pays be removed from this post. I have since complied with the request and have removed that information.
Congrats Jeffro. It’s always good to hear about people doing enough on the web to pack in the 9-5. Best of luck.
Congratulations, Jeff! You’ve achieved so much in such a short time.
Jeff, that’s awesome. It’s been fun watching your blogging progress since basically the beginning. Some days I wish I could drop out of school and blog full time. Live the dream! :) Congrats man
Congratulations Jeff! I look forward to reading the interviews, I know you’ll do a great job. I too have now added the BloggerTalks RSS.
Count me in as someone who’s just added BloggerTalks to my RSS Feed – even though I rarely have time to comment (or something worth saying I guess) I do read your blog (and posts on WTC) regularly – congrats on adding another creative outlet and revenue stream!
Hey Jeff – thanks! Glad you remember me! Yes, I’m pretty certain that I will – Dallas is closer to me than the other places they’ve been holding a WordCamp so it’s far easier for me to attend. I’ve been so busy with my day job that I’ve had no time for posting for a few months but I’m hoping to get my blog back on track very soon…..best wishes! :D
