Bloggers Face-Off: Darren Rowse vs. Jeremy Shoemoney

By Daniel Scocco - 1 minute read

There are many interviews with famous bloggers around the Internet. After you read a couple of them, however, they start to get somewhat boring. Thinking about this problem I decided to try something more innovative and hopefully interesting, both for the interviewees and for the readers.

Bloggers Face-Off will be a weekly feature over Daily Blog Tips, where 2 famous bloggers will answer to some quick questions, and the results will be presented side by side. Apart from valuable insights the Bloggers Face-Off should also provide a nice reading for everyone.

Before introducing the interview I would like to thank both Darren Rowse from and Jeremy Schoemaker from, I could not imagine a better couple of bloggers to kick-off this project!
