One of the most common emails I get is asking about how I started and built Zen Habits from scratch — a story I haven’t really told, until now.
While not all of you are writers and bloggers, I thought I’d share the Zen Habits story in a free ebook called “How I Got 100,000 subscribers in Two Years: Lessons From Zen Habits” … it’s mainly aimed at bloggers, but it might be interesting even those who would just like to know the backstory of Zen Habits and how I’ve built the blog in the last couple of years.
Again, it doesn’t cost anything to download the report. In this report you’ll:
- Hear the story of what I did right — and wrong — in the early days of Zen Habits.
- Understand how I’ve grown Zen Habits from an itty bitty blog.
- Learn about how my early and enthusiastic readers shaped the blog and made it a success.
- Why having 100K subscribers is a mixed blessing (but one that I’m very grateful for).
For those who sign up and get the free report, I’ll also be releasing some audio and video podcasts for bloggers, again free of charge, in the coming week or three. I hope you enjoy them!
It’s been a fantastic journey, and I hope that in sharing my story, you’ll learn something that will help you in your journey. And as always, thanks for reading!
