If you know absolutely nothing about blogging, this is the book for you. The book spends as much time talking about the culture, community, and benefits of blogging, as it does walking you through the steps for setting up a simple blog.

If you've already done a little homework on blogs, this book will be too basic. Skip it and get the Dummies book on blogging, which spends more time helping you compare and choose the right blogging platform for your needs.

The 4 stars? It's a 5 star book for the beginner, but only a 3 star book for the advanced beginner and beyond.

Once you read or skim the book, you understand blogging and can start your own blog. The book made me think about what kind of blog I wanted to start.

The book compares the major blogging sites in text and chart form. It gives advanced information on photo, audio, and video blogging. The resources section lists a lot of free web sites and articles, and I have used it many times.

Bottom line: this is as good as a source on blogging as any book will be, but any book on blogging needs to be supplemented by surfing the web.

The Everything Blogging Book is a great starter source for newbie bloggers looking to simply set up and run a blog. There is a TON of useful info to be mined here about what a blog is, who is out there blogging, and why one might build their online journal.

The author discusses such deeper points as establishing your blogging voice/persona, identifying your market and determining your blogging goals, as well as the nuts and bolts of archiving posts, selecting blog hosts and designing layout.

Types of blogs are discussed in detail: political/pundit blogs; health and wellness blogs; blogs for writers and artists; family journals and personal diaries. A lot of attention is paid to how to wring the most enjoyment as possible from your blogging efforts.

Chapter titles:
1. Welcome to Blogging
2. Blogs as Useful Tools
3. Popular Blog Topics
4. Who is Blogging?
5. Why Build a Blog
6. Understanding Online Publishing
7. Planning Your Blog
8. Finding Your Blog Host
9 Deciding on a Blog Host
10. Starting Your Blog
11. Blog Designs
12. Blog Content Development
13. Building Blog Communities
14. Popular Blog Tools
15. Bloggers Beware (disclaimers, copyright)
16. Secrets of Successful Blogs
17. Outside the Blog Box (art,craft and photography blogs, group blogs, multimedia blogs)
18. Blogging Got Business
19. Marketing Your Blog
20. Maintaining Your Blog
21. Measuring Blog Traffic
22. Beyond the Blog (podcasting, vlogging, hand held and mobile blogging)
23. Impact of Blogging (society and the Internet)

This book in particular seems specifically aimed at the personal blogger, not the would-be professional.

So much has happened in the life of the blogging concept since this book was published, that it would be a good idea for the author to do some updating.

Nevertheless, I found it to be well organized and full of information.

I suspect this book was excellent when blogging first came unto vogue. But now I think it's outdated.

Aliza has written blogging reference book for new, current, or thinking of starting, bloggers. It is detailed and precise with easily followed step by step instructions. I am not a new blogger and this book sits on my desk and is referred back to often. It covers most aspects of blogging and though published in 2006, it is still a great guide. I recommend Aliza's book to anyone. Rock On Aliza...
