I’m always blogging, but it’s not always from such amazing places

Welcome to Savvy Pro Blogger! I am Calin, a professional blogger since… 2008, which is like dinosaur years in the blogging world.

You can probably tell that I’m not exaggerating since I’m using the term “Professional Blogger” instead of content creator, affiliate marketer, influencer, website owner or even SEO expert

What matters is that I’ve been blogging for a living since 2008: sometimes with more success than most of the times, but overall still going strong despite all sorts of challenges, from Google updates to SEO trend changes to AI.

I’ve had various attempts over the years to launch a “blogging blog for bloggers” type of website, but I always ended up dropping the domains and focusing on something else.

Now, it’s time to try again. But I am more motivated than ever, more knowledgeable than ever (after all, I’ve been blogging for over 16 years now!) and ready to let the world know about it.

Why? Because the blogging world is changing fast and I see many people ready to give up, feeling defeated by the most recent developments – mainly AI and Google search ranking updates.

While these are indeed bigger and stronger than anything I have seen in my career as a professional blogger… it’s NOT the end of the world. It’s the beginning of a new era. It’s the time when the eggs are scrambled, when new cards are dealt… or whatever you want to call it.

Yes, it is the end for many niche sites, many outdated approaches to blogging and building websites – but at the same time it’s the opportunity for those who can adapt to finally strike it big.

And this is when Savvy Pro Blogger comes into play: I am here to help you survive, adapt and overcome the challenges of the new reality in the blogging world, by sharing everything I am doing, everything I am learning (because it’s a learning process for me to) and everything that is working.

Thank you for being here! If you want to get in touch, you can do so here.

About Calin, the Savvy Pro Blogger

My name is Calin. I have been self employed for most of my life, after I jumped head first into blogging back in 2008. Ever since, I’ve been living exclusively off my blogging income and I’ve been through all the highs and lows you can expects in such a large period of time.

While I am not the smartest, the most knowledgeable, the most extrovert professional blogger out there, I have one big quality: resilience. This is why I am still here, still doing this after all these years, after many of the self-proclaimed gurus have risen to fame and dropped into the abyss of forgetfulness.

My main focus was always to work as a one-man-team, build blogs and sell them when they become too big for a single person to grow any further.

As a result, over the years, I built and sold several blogs (most of them in the five-figure ranges, some closer to four, some closer to six), and now I am ready to share everything I know as well as learn new things – and share those too.

I am a real geek, being passionate about technology and video games, but also personal finances and the FIRE movement, as well as developing healthy habits, living a healthy life and enjoying the time spend with my family.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism – but I am also not a native English speaker, so my writing is not as charming and good as others’. BUT I am doing my best and I always think that, as long as I am capable of delivering the message in its entirety, it’s all that matters.

I don’t really like to talk (or write) about myself… so this will be all about me. If you want to learn a bit more, let’s connect on Linkedin.

Special mention

The Savvy Pro Blogger website was initially launched by my friend and fellow blogger Kemkem Casinelli, who still writes every now on them on her travel websites, Next Bite of Life and Expat in Valencia (although her main focus now is travel, not blogging).

When she told me that she no longer wants to work on Savvy Pro Blogger, it happened at the perfect time: I was thinking to once more start a “blog about blogging” and this time to do it right.

So instead of starting from scratch, I took her offer and the gift of SavvyProBlogger.com, with the goal of making it your first stop when it comes to advice for bloggers, as well as news from the blogging world and awesome content overall.Save
