This book attemps to cover all aspects of successful blogging. It introduces the reader to Blogger and Wordpress, which are the two main free blog-hosting services online. It also covers the various hosting options and what to look for in a host. I have blogs at both Blogger and Wordpress, and I think they are wonderful hosting services. This book also covers how to create, maintain and promote a blog.
According to the authors you can monetize your blog with either contextual ads, ad networks, or affiliate programs. Of course, it takes a very popular blog (one with lots of traffic) for much money to be made from any of these sources. And if you have a blog that is that successful, then you'd be better off selling your own products and services where you make all the money instead of collecting a wimpy commission.
This book covers how to use your blog to self promote and gain credibility in your field. Your blog will help you funnel prospects and paying customers to your real Web site where you sell what you do for a living. Basically, blogs are great public relations and publicity tools for you to use in marketing your products and services.Read more ›
There really isn't much substance to this book. It is moderately well written, but offers no new or rare insights.
It might be usable for someone who doesn't use the web much or isn't a very good researcher and who can't find information on blogs on the web. In short, it's a simple guide and nothing more, with much of the information coming directly from web sources, which the authors are honest enough to credit.
But be aware that none of the subjects covered are treated in any depth. The part about "search enhine optimization" is laughably incomplete and amateurish.
The book simply doesn't live up to the promise of its title.
This like that, has a few good lines, other wise, practice, use Internet to get answers for the questions you can figure out pertain to specific things you need to know and pocket your cash.
Also, they talk about themselves way too much and you get a feel they are trying to advertise their own blogs way too much and that this book was just another way for them to monetize their own blog as opposed to helping others.

An excellent book. Unfortunately it can't be updated quickly enough to keep up with changes in the field.Published 15 months ago by Larry Ford
This is a great book for me as a beginner; I checked it out from the library 3 or 4 times and then decided I better just buy it so it would be handy. Glad I did!Published on January 9, 2013 by Sherry McMahan

I've read his "How to Make Money on MySpace" book and loved it. This book has been equally as good. It is easy to read as well as filled with all sorts of great information. Read morePublished on March 29, 2009 by Lisa D. Brugger
