Bloggers Face-Off: Keith Dsouza vs. Ross McKillop

Tech blogs are the bread and butter of the blogosphere. Launching one is no guarantee of success, but if you manage to set yourself apart from the crowd, the returns are pretty good. Just consider that combined the two blogs that we are featuring today receive around 50,000 daily page views….

Bloggers Face-Off: Gary Arndt vs. John Struan

It is Tuesday, so time for a new Bloggers Face-Off. On this edition we have two interesting bloggers.

Gary Arndt is the man behind Everything Everywhere. In the case you are wondering, the name of his blog is right on the mark. Early in 2007 he decided to sell his stuff and start traveling the world. His blog is where you can find his thoughts, experiences, and a log of his journey.

John Struan, on the other hand, blogs about art, t-shirts, gadgets and a lot more on his blog Super Punch. John is also the proof that you can make a blogspot blog successful.

Bloggers Face-Off: Joost de Valk vs. Satish Gandham

As Eminem would say, guess who is back?

We got a bunch of applications for the Bloggers Face-Off last week, so hopefully we will be able to keep this column going regularly in 2009. I will aim initially for one new face-off every two weeks (so two per month).

Joost de Valk is a good friend mine, and a terrific SEO and WordPress developer. He blogs at Yoast.com, which is a must read for anyone interested in those two topics.

Satish Gandham is another popular tech blogger. GeniusHackers.com, his main gig, has just crossed the 7,000 RSS subscribers mark, and it covers a wide range of topics, from software to blogging tips.

Do You Want to Get Featured on the Bloggers Face-Off?

Readers have been asking for the return of the Bloggers Face-Off column, so I will give it a shot. I can’t promise we will have them weekly as we used to, but I really want to release a new face-off at least every month, if not every fifteen days.

Thinking about that, I figured that perhaps we could also strengthen the Daily Blog Tips community by featuring some of our own readers on the face-offs.

Bloggers Face-Off: Chris Coyier vs. Noura Yehia

Whew, it has been a while since our last Bloggers Face-Off. I will work harder this year to bring you guys one new face-off every month at least, possibly more.

To kick start the 2009 season, however, we got a terrific pair of bloggers. The first one is Chris Coyier, the owner of CSS-Tricks.com. With over 16,000 subscribers, the site is a must read for CSS and design lovers. You will find tutorials, videos and even a nice community on the Forums there.

Bloggers Face-Off: Skellie vs. Steven Snell

Last week I was thinking who would make a good match for the Bloggers Face-Off, and an idea came to my mind: why not put together two ex-writers of Daily Blog Tips?

Bloggers Face-Off: Yaro Starak vs. Shawn Collins

I am pleased to present two heavy-weight Internet marketers on today’s Bloggers Face-Off. They probably need no introduction, but I will give one anyway.

Yaro Starak has been building websites and online businesses since 1998, and he has done pretty much it all. I had the pleasure to work with him some time ago, and I can testify on how knowledgeable he is when it comes to the web in general. Entrepreneurs Journey is his blog, and a must read for all web entrepreneurs.

Shawn Collins, on the other hand, is a legend of the affiliate marketing industry. He has been doing it since 1997, and he is also the co-founder of the Affiliate Summit conference. If you want to learn about affiliate marketing, make sure to check his blog.

Now to the face-off!

Bloggers Face-Off: Israel Lagares vs. Rob Cooper

It could be my personal opinion, but I think this is one of the best Bloggers Face-Off we had in a while. And the curious thing is that the two bloggers are coming from a niche that is as far from technology as you can go: health and weight loss.

Israel Lagares is best known as the Fat Man Unleashed. On his blog he logs his journey getting back into shape, and he covers all sorts of health related topics (including fitness tips for bloggers).

Rob Cooper, our second blogger, is the author of Former Fat Guy. Now that is one of the most realistic website names you will find around. Rob used to weight 500 pounds, and he lost 300 out of it.

Both those guys know what they are talking about, so if you like health, fitness or weight loss make sure to check their websites. Now to the questions!

Bloggers Face-Off: Tina Su vs. Henrik Edberg

People love personal development and productivity blogs right? I read quite a few myself, and today we have two bloggers that shine in that space (interesting to notice, again, that bloggers from the same niche tend to think on the same way…).

Tina Su is the woman behind Think Simple Now, a blog focused on creativity, clarity and happiness. She managed to attract a loyal audience in a short time span, but if you check her content you will know why.

Henrik Edberg is our second blogger, and author of the popular Positivity Blog. With over 7,000 RSS readers, the blog covers a wide range of topics, from career to productivity and life hacks.

On a side note, the poll is back. On the last face-off we did not have one, but some readers asked for it. If you are wondering, the poll is just for fun. You can vote on who you think gave the best answers, the funniest ones, or simply who you think is the coolest blogger!

Bloggers Face-Off: Zac Johnson vs. Tyler Cruz

Time to get some online entrepreneurs on the Bloggers Face-Off.

Zac Johnson has been making money online since he was a teenager, and now he has a small empire. Some time ago he received a lot of attention after revealing that one of his websites was making over $200,000 monthly in profits….

Tyler Cruz also makes money from building websites and selling advertising on them. On top of that he also flips sites and domains, and he is already making five figures monthly.

Those two guys know what they are they are talking about, so check out their websites and bookmark it. You will notice that some of their answers were surprisingly similar, I guess it’s the web entrepreneur lifestyle!

Patrick Altoft, on the other hand, is the director of an SEO consulting firm. BlogStorm is the place where you can find his articles on several SEO related topics.
