The answer to how he got so much traffic: amazing well done original content given away for free.
Content is king.
I actually think its the other way around. People come to his site more for the forums than for his blogs. At the end of the day people are mostly interested in... themselves. And yes, the great blogs are what got people here originally, but the forums, with these particular categories are what got people hooked.
Without the forums I suspect his traffic would go down by 2 thirds Im guessing.
I for one dont read anyones blog but his. And I only do because I come to the forums. Im so glad though because the blogs have been life changing for me.
