10 Amazing Darren Rowse Quotes That Might Change Your Blogging Life

Darren Rowse has shared an awesome presentation (10 Pieces of Advice for Successful Blogging) on Slideshare, which contains a bunch of awesome quotes about successful blogging.

When I saw those quotes for the first time, each of them touched something in me. It has literally changed my thoughts about blogging.

I used to think my blog is small. I used to compare myself with other successful bloggers. I was searching for my passion and next big step. I was wondering why successful bloggers are awesome. I always wanted to know the ‘secrets’ of successful bloggers. And I was disheartened and demotivated until I saw those quotes.

I so loved those quotes; I can’t help sharing those quotes with you.

If you truly understand these quotes, it might change your blogging life.

Let’s check the quotes.
