More About the Author

Nick is a writer, but you already knew that, so he won't waste your time.

If he were to describe his work (which is exactly what he's trying to do here), he would say it's a mashup between Jurassic Park, National Treasure, The Da Vinci Code, all of James Rollins' stuff, some of Clive Cussler's stuff, a little of Michael Crichton's stuff, with a side of adrenaline, testosterone, and the good parts of the Michael Bay movies (but only the GOOD PARTS). 

His soon-to-be-written Wikipedia page says that he lives in a cabin on a mountain in Colorado with his wife and daughter, and enjoys being terrorized by the three dogs and tortoise that share his life and do nothing but eat food and cost him money. 

He would love for you to hang out with him on Twitter or on his website, www.nickthacker.com.

Nick Thacker's unique approach set me up to take responsibility for my part in the process of building my own business. I easily related the questions to my own experience and wished I had this guide when I first started blogging three years ago. The questions listed provided a solid framework for approaching my own business plan. The questions are practical, clear and logical. The language is simple , direct and realistic.
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.

Mr. Nick Thacker, where were you when I first started my blog? I absolutely loved "Building a Blog For Readers..." First, as I read, I could not stop thinking how my husband and a friend of mine, both embarking on new blogs, need to read this manifesto sooner than later. The tips/strategies you provide are easily essential to developing a successful, sufficient, and sustaining blog.

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.

This little book was a big disappointment for me. Lots of high volume sales pitch & hype, but no quality input on writing and designing a Blog.

Building A Blog For Readers is a very comprehensive collection of thought provoking and actionable tips for writers to consider before launching a blog. Although, BaBR can also help experienced bloggers consider things they may have overlooked.

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.

Nick Thacker has compiled a great list of questions you need to ask yourself before you launch your blog. From the "visionary" to the semi-technical, answering these questions will give your blog, should you decide to proceed, a firm foundation. This isn't a how to book. It is more of a why do I want to book. Spend an evening or two with the book before you throw yourself NEC deep into the blogosphere.

Building a blog is no small task. It takes creative vision, tactical know-how, and plain old butt-in-seat work.
One of the hardest parts is knowing where to start.

Nick Thacker's ebook, Building a Blog for Readers, is a great thought-starter that provides new and seasoned bloggers alike with a solid framework of 101 questions they should be asking as they embark on the blogger's journey. The book is organized into seven sections: Vision, Purpose, Strategy, Tactical, Structure, Personal/Lifestyle, and Inspiration From Other Writers. Within each of the first six sections, Thacker provides a series of questions and accompanying advice. The final section includes excerpts from the writings of several successful bloggers on topics like Listening, Promotion, Relationships, and Time Management.

Thacker does a thorough job of considering many of the high-level and detailed questions that a blogger should consider. The ebook is a fairly quick read - condensing a lot of expertise and experience into easily scannable pages. I also like the way the questions are organized - breaking things into these categories and then arranging them in a roughly chronological order (based on which questions you should consider first and so on) - because it helps wrap the reader's mind around the big picture and delivers some long-range perspective.
