How to Build a Passionate Community of Learners – A Conversation with Leo Babauta

Note: This is one of a series of interviews I conducted as part of writing the book Leading the Learning Revolution. – JTC

Leo Babauta has been an inspiration to so many people – myself among them – so I was thrilled to have the chance to interview him while writing Leading the Learning Revolution.

While he is best known for Zen Habits, a blog that now has more than a quarter million readers (!), Leo has also put his stamp on numerous other projects. He is the author of The Power of Less as well as numerous eBooks, founder of the popular Write to Done blog, and creator of The Habit Course.

And that’s just scratching the surface.

Part of what prompted me to contact Leo about Leading the Learning Revolution was his work with Mary Jaksch of Good Life Zen in launching and building A-List Blogging Bootcamps. I was an early participant in the program as well as in the A-List Blogger Club that grew out of it. It was, and still is, a great example of what I describe as PassionxPurpose, or P2, learning community in the book.

We talk about A-List Blogging in the podcast, but also about Leo’s perspective on blogging, membership learning sites, and education in general. You are going to really enjoy this one. Click below to listen or subscribe on iTunes. And don’t forget to check out the show notes.
