As you know, the purpose of this series is to “introduce bloggers to more of their peers in the blogosphere and likely offer new opportunities to make friends, build collaborations, and get more traffic for your own blog.” Famous Bloggers Roundup #8 continues that “What’s Up, Bloggers!” series by introducing you to Don Sturgill.
Introducing Don Sturgill
He’s a Writer, Dreamer, and Believer. Don Sturgill lives and works near Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. He loves hiking, camping, and fresh air. A former firefighter and forestry technician, Don volunteers his communication skills to help the American Red Cross alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies.
Suggested Tool for Bloggers
We interrupt this interview to share a few blogger tools (etc.) with you.
As is our custom, we have a few recommendations from our featured blogger, Don! As is his nature, he has come up with some tools that can help you, in your needs.
Don recommends the use of the following three tools:
- WhatsMySERP.com — to help keep a handle on your SEO efforts
- TitleCapitalization.com – a little tool to help you keep on top of your writing skills, when it comes to capitalization.
- Calendly.com – while the rest of you is getting streamlined and organized, you need to ensure your calendar is up to speed, too, eh?
Need More Traffic? These Ladies Have It!
Please stay tuned. I have a recommendation for material that has proven to help bloggers increase their traffic. It is a wonderful strategy (ebook) and a workbook and cheat sheet that will help you to follow along with the strategy. Even those who have implemented a couple of the recommendations have seen increases within 24 hrs (including myself!). Before I forget, there is a sale with a coupon of “save20.” However, I need to get you a special link, so stay tuned and check back.
Also, don’t forget to take advantage of deals that our Famous Bloggers Proprietor, Hesham Zebida, brings your way, with his wonderful software!
Some of Don Sturgill’s Accomplishments
Ok, now let’s get back to what is really important in this feature >> Introducing you to Don and giving you a little glimpse into what a wonderful inspiration he is! I know I can say that, personally, based on all of the times that Mr. Sturgill has personally inspired me! In fact, let’s take a look at a hangout with Don Sturgill himself before we continue with his list of accolades.
Don has worked as a writer and editor for folks like Ann Smarty (MyBlogGuest.com), Josh Parkinson (PostPlanner.com), and Jason Wiser (OnTrackTips.com). His primary gig is ghostwriting for CEOs and other high-profile individuals. Don’s work is published on leading websites and in print publications worldwide. A current passion is researching the Cascadia Subduction Zone and its impact (both current and potential) on those who live in the Pacific Northwest. His aim is to write more books for himself (you can find Don’s work on Amazon affiliate) and continue to speak about the topics he covers.
When asked about his aspirations, Don shares the following with us: “My personal philosophy is that the difference between good and excellent is about 10% more effort.
My aim is to take The DEEP Program, a life and time management system I developed for an SBA/SBDC business incubator in Navajo territory, to entrepreneurs and dreamers everywhere.”
Ask Don for advice and you’re likely to hear “Never, ever give up.” I don’t know about you, but I can definitely benefit from those words of wisdom!
