About the Book
Thousands of aspiring bloggers launch new blogs every day, hoping to boost their income. Without solid advice from experts, most will fail. This bestselling guide, now fully revised with new and updated tips and tricks from two of the world’s most successful bloggers, provides the step-by-step information bloggers need to turn their hobby into an income source or a fulltime career.
This is an update of the 1st edition and not a complete rewrite – however there are a few significant updates including:
- there have been many many small updates and changes throughout the book. New examples, screenshots, updates of new tools, a few deletions of references to old tools, an update to our stories in the intro etc.
- they removed a chapter on blog networks – things have changed a lot in this space and many networks are not hiring any more or have changed their models significantly.
- There is a new chapter on social media and how it impacts and can be used by bloggers
- There is a case study chapter that goes through the first 4 years of Darren’s main blog – Digital Photography School. He works through how he launched it, what he focused upon in years 1-2 and then in years 3-4, how he monetized it and shares the secrets to how he drives significant traffic and income through email newsletters, social media etc.
My Take on the Book
This was a great book. I knew that there were a lot of books on the market that talk about blogging and how to be a great blogger, but I have yet to read them. I was actually in my first reading through the first edition when I heard that the second edition was on its way to press. I was excited to have the opportunity to check it out.
The authors have such a wealth of experience, I knew that I could learn a lot from their experiences and part of the best parts in the book were the case studies where the reader can see what the authors did to make their blogging career possible.
I have been working hard to try and work on my own blog for many years, woring to make the right choices and working to make the blog into something that I might be able to turn into some profit as well as into something that I can be proud of.
I have followed both of the authors for a long time and what you read in this book pulls together the best of their advice and allows those of us who are bloggers to answer questions that need to be answered as well as making the right choices along the way day by day as one blogs.
This is a great book and one that I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!
If this book sounds like something you would like for your own library you can find it on Amazon!
