Blogger Interviews: Amazon Author, Udemy Instructor and Web Designer Rob Cubbon

Rob Cubbon Interview

Rob Cubbon is a London-based blogger that I connected with several years ago through blogging communities and social media networks. It’s been a pleasure to watch Rob build his reputation and authority online through his blog, freelancing and web design expertise. To date Rob has published several Kindle books on Amazon covering WordPress, passive income, home-based business and more. It’s been several months since the last time an interview was posted here on the blog, but I really wanted to share some of Rob’s story here because I know you will get inspired by what he’s done just like I did.

I hope you’ve had the chance to read some of the blog interviews I’ve conducted here on Basic Blog Tips. Interviews are like a hybrid blog post – on one hand it’s like a guest post, but on the other hand, not really because the interviewer picks the topic. The reason we all enjoy blog interviews so much is because they are a great example of those successful collaborations I’m so in favor of, and the “engagement” that we all seek to have on our blogs is pretty much built in by nature.

Interview with Kim Castleberry from Just Ask Kim

Just Ask Kim
