While I read, I actually developed ideas for my own blog that I feel are necessary for it to remain afloat and true to why I started it in the first place. I developed a vision as to what it needs to look like and what to focus on in the future. This is huge. I have been struggling with idea development for weeks, unable to pin point exactly what my blog needs.
When I read your manifesto, my two-year-old was sitting next to me watching Blue's Clues on my iPod. He never once interrupted me and he did not have to because I was able to read though the pages quickly. The organization of tips reads smoothly and builds accordingly. Everything makes sense. I love it. My blogging experience had not involved me reading books on blogging. Therefore, I can honestly see your manifesto becoming my "go to bible for blogging".
Finally, I truly enjoyed the input you included from other successful bloggers. It helped to show how blogging could be a successful venture, even for me, as long as the blogger (myself included) dedicates a certain amount of time, focus, and passion into it. In regards to what your manifesto still needs, I am not one to ask. I am only still learning what a blog needs and you are the first person to point me in the right direction. Thank you for that.
Though much of the information was familiar, I learned a few new terms just by perusing this once-i.e., pillar content, USP. Also I have heard about Alexa.com and plan to check that out. So it served to reinforce what I already know while motivating me to search deeper.
The author practices what he preaches by adding value in an engaging, approachable way.
The testimonies of all the probloggers listed reinforced everything he listed adding credibility to his material. It is clear that blogging is hard work and success will be dependent upon an individual's willingness to accept the responsibility for the time and effort it will take.
The author did a great job. It is professional in appearance and tone and forces the reader to honestly look at what level of commitment they are willing to make. I highly recommend this comprehensive reference on blogging as a business and feel it appeals to writers and bloggers of all levels.
The book is quick and easy to read. As I read through the book, I had to stop a few times and write down some notes. This is one of those books that you will find yourself referencing time and time again.
The book is full of questions that are answered by bloggers with high readership. Then you have the chance to answer the same questions as they pertain to the blog you currently have or are about to start.
Building a Blog for Readers helps you focus on blogs in your niche and then take it a few steps further helping you discover guest host and advertisers. My blog is too broad but until I read this section I didn't know that. Now I understand why some days my readership is higher than others.
I've been reading books this month on building platforms and blogs. All of them suggest Wordpress.org as the best, even Thacker, but I use blogger and probably will because for me it's easy. Thacker at least didn't make me feel like a child for choosing to use blogger. All of the questions in this book work just as well with any blogging system.
Definitely worth more than I paid for it.
