I have a little confession to make, I have slight nerd tenancies. They usually strike when I’m interested in a new topic. Whether it be potty training or making bread in a bread machine, I go crazy researching everything I can about that topic. It is not uncommon to see me leaving the library with an arm-full of books they have on a certain subject.
When I decided to start a blog it was the same story. I read everything I could get my hands on. And now, after reading the Blogger’s Survival Guide, I can confidently say thatt this is the BEST book about blogging that I have read.
- If you want to start a blog this book will take you by the hand and walk you through all the ins and outs of becoming a successful blogger.
- If you already have a blog, it will show you how to be more productive in your work, making your blog work for you. It covers those things you didn’t even realize you need (ex: setting up a copyright), which equips you to be a more successful blogger.
The book is broken down into 7 days (Chapters) which are:
- Day 1: The Setup
- Day2: The Design
- Day 3: The Legal Stuff
- Day 4: The Content
- Day 5: The Traffic Drivers
- Day 6: The Measurement of Traffic
- Day 7: The Money Makers
To me this is a perfect example of the thoroughness of this book. It begins with the first day setting up your blog and closes with potential ways to make a profit. It covers everything from good content, SEO, giveaways and Google Analytics in between.
I wish this book had been around when I started, but now I feel equipped to make up for lost time. I’m sure this book will be a continual reference throughout my blogging career.
