Ten years ago I started a fitness blog, wrote some articles, slapped on an Adsense unit or two and then a year later sold it for $20,000. I was pretty happy with myself.

Between the interviews with up and coming bloggers series that I ran on my personal blog and the launch of BlogcastFM.com, Iâ€™ve had the opportunity to interview more than 30 bloggers. Not only have I learned quite a bit about blogging but Iâ€™ve learned about people and how to to conduct interviews with bloggers.
