Laurie Niles founded Violinist.com with her husband in 1996 and since then has written about, met, and interviewed the top violinists from all over the world.
The site gets over 150,000 unique visitors each month, which is a TON of traffic.
In addition to founding violinist.com, Laurie is a violinist (as you probably guessed) and is also the author of Violinist.com Interviews, Volume 1.
I wanted to learn more about the history the site and what she has learned along the way.
In this interview, Laurie and I talk about the process of building violinist.com, how she prepares to interview the world’s top violinists, and how to ask better questions.
