Profile Bio

David is a veteran blogger and online entrepreneur, having founded a technology blog in 1998 and growing it into a six-figure, multi-author business which was found in publications like PC World, PC Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. He turned that blog into a commercial success using a combination of advertising, affiliate revenue, online courses, writing and selling books and CDs, and even a membership site before it was cool.

In 2008, he founded the Blog Marketing Academy and launched his first training course for bloggers with an $80k launch. Since then, he has gone on to over 24 separate training programs and has worked with thousands of students on their blogs, in every niche you could think of. All of this has now been brought to THE LAB, the training and support platform of the Blog Marketing Academy.

But what David is most proud of is his ability to make things simple.. and make the complicated approachable.

He has this weird obsession with traveling and camping in his motorhome around the country with his wife and 2 kids. You might find him sitting in a folding chair, in a campsite, smoking the occasional cigar.

David also likes to talk about himself in the third person. In bios like this one. It’s weird, really.
