Meet David Risley
I'm David Risley, the founder of the Blog Marketing Academy
and creator of the Blog Monetization Lab
. I got started with blogging in 1998 as a technology blogger, and in my over 10 years exclusively running that blog, I built it into a six-figure business, visited by over 300,000 people monthly... and got it coverage in tech media including PC World
, PC Magazine
, Wall Street Journal
... even Playboy
. In 2008, I began teaching other bloggers how I had done it. I might be one of the "old timers" when it comes to blogging, literally doing it before it was even a real word. But with that longevity comes a skill of teaching it, a grounding in common sense, and a tuned hype detector. My mission today is to provide honest, grounded online business training that is based in sound principles.
