After weeks of planning and development, launch day is finally here!

Our new blog Expert Enough is open to the public. We’d love you to stop by today and take a look. We’re pretty excited about the project.

Check out Expert Enough here

Stop by, leave a comment, tell us what you think or even share your favorite article. The feedback so far has been awesome.

We’ll be reporting on the launch process and results here soon, but here’s what the project is all about in case you haven’t been following along:

What is Expert Enough?

Expert Enough is a new blog we’re launching today. Think Traffic readers voted on the topic, and we’re building the site as a case study for the Million Dollar Blog Project.

Expert Enough is about getting good at things that matter. It’s about wanting to learn more, do more and be more.

Finally! The long wait is over :)

I’ve already had a chance to check out some of the posts, and they’re awesome! Once again, Corbett goes above & beyond with the quality of his content :D

Thanks so much Jon, it should be interesting to see where the project evolves. Thanks for checking it out!

Congrats on the launch! The site looks great – looking forward to all the awesome content you’ve got planned for it :)

well, i loved the concept and will surely keep on following it. good start and all the best

What I really like: that you took ThinkTraffic off of the MDBP and put up ExpertEnough instead.

That’s how you make things interesting :) .

Design for the site is looking good to.

PS: I’m shooting for that #1 spot this week, keep your guard up Bogusia ;) .

Corbett Barr November 8, 2011 at 7:28 pm

That was always the intent, Gregory. We just had Think Traffic up there temporarily as an example.

ExpertEnough is a new site. How is it possible that it already has a Page Rank 4?

Corbett Barr November 8, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Hmm, that’s a great question John. I have no idea. As you can see, we registered the domain on October 9th: http://whois.domaintools.com/expertenough.com

Perhaps the high page rank is because it’s been linked to by this site and a few others already?

@John Timing is everything..Google updated their PageRank on November 7, just in time for ExpertEnough and sine ThinkTraffic and Leo Babauta link to it, and probably some other well know blogs..It got to PR4.
Corbett best of luck with EE I am already a big fan of it…

Hey guys,

I’m coming from the Expert Enough site and you have done a wonderful job with it.

I’ve read a couple of articles and I absolutely loved them, looking forward for more EE articles.

Good job guys and good luck with it! ;-)

Thanks Sergio!

phil November 9, 2011 at 12:57 am

if the content is as good as this site it will be amazing.. looking forward to more

Hey Corbett,

Just found that you’re doing this. Nice project idea :)

Just curious though. In the vote you actually found that Web design / development was the most voted on niche topic. Ala http://thinktraffic.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/ChartExport-498×373.png

This seems to be a bit different, or maybe I’m wrong?

Also, you’re utilising a lot of connections that 99.9% of people wouldn’t have access to? Are you also launching a blog on web design where this is different or?

Keen to know as I’ll be following along.

Yo Glen, good to hear from you!

You’re right about the topic choice, it’s different from what you read in that post. I think you’re missing out on two follow-up posts on the subject:

http://thinktraffic.net/how-to-find-a-great-domain-name-for-a-new-blog-and-set-it-up-in-15-minutes
http://thinktraffic.net/mdbp-ready-set-go-the-million-dollar-blog-project-begins

We also address the objection you have to “resources” that we have access to in those posts.

You can see all the posts in the series here:

Congrats on a great launch! Looks like the site is getting a good amount of traffic, and it’s already PR4!

Scott Dudley November 10, 2011 at 2:39 am

Thats an interesting niche and certainly something that I am interested in.

They do say that we only use about 10% (or whatever the figure is) of our brain power and it would be good to use as much of as possible and become experts in our fields.

I think the site will do really well.

Avadhut November 10, 2011 at 3:28 am

Hey Corbett,

I got to know about Expert Enough on ZenHabits. I visited EE and liked what I saw.
Excellent design, good subjects and articles.

Moreover, I liked the concept of Expert Enough, it gives everyone confidence and come out of their comfort zones and start giving services.

Wish you all the luck.

Looks great. With a such a strong launch like this, I’m sure the new website will be a huge success. Congratulations on your efforts.

Intrigued in what you are doing. How do we follow it from a business sense? Also why does it have no adverts? – ie how do you intend to get an income from it?

Corbett Barr November 20, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Hey Scoobie, we’ll be working on our revenue plan over the coming weeks. We’ll start by focusing on affiliate marketing. Eventually, we’ll also include advertising and information products. For now we’re mostly focused on building the audience for a couple of months.

Cheers
