Summer’s almost over and I’m feeling the urge to take on a big ambitious challenge. If you’re feeling up to it, I’d love you to join us too. Let me explain.
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Here’s how it’s going to work: we’re going to build a profitable blog (on a topic not related to making money online) and show you exactly how we do it, live, from the very beginning.
We’re also going to ask you to help us choose a topic for the blog we create, and even follow along and create your own blog at the same time if you like.
Update: We’ve specifically created a 13-week course for people trying to successfully launch their own blog that uses a proven strategy. How to Start a Blog That Matters can help you create a blog that will change your life and the lives of your readers.
-> Check out the course here to see if it’s a good fit for you.
The Big Idea (why call it the “Million Dollar Blog Project?”)
We’re going to create a blog and show you exactly how we build it, step-by-step, into a profitable site. We also want to inspire you to create your own money-making blog right along with us.
We (the Think Traffic team) will be showing you exactly how we select a topic, develop a brand, build the site, create the content, build the audience, become authorities on the topic and generate income from the site.

It’s been one month already since I launched Think Traffic, and I want to introduce an ongoing series of monthly reports here today.
Part of my plan for this site has always been to use its own growth and the techniques I use for growing it as a case study. What good is a blog about traffic if I don’t share all of the nitty-gritty details about how Think Traffic is growing?
So, I’m going to be completely transparent about Think Traffic’s traffic and publish a detailed report every month. The monthly report idea has been inspired by Glen and Pat who are both doing a fantastic job growing an audience and giving you an insider’s view of exactly how they do it.
