Excellent general overview on how to become a blogger and what the world of blogging is all about. Short, concise entries on the history of blogging, how to find blogs,how to subscribe to blogs and how and where to begin your own blog. This Rough Guide volume, like others in the RG series, features tons of side bars and a massive appendix, all listing further resources to explore, or cool sites to visit for blogospheric inspiration. --BookGuide blog

"The Rough Guide To Blogging" is a deceptively small book, but it has virtually everything you need to answer your questions. There are clear, concise chapters on getting started, acquiring skills, and getting your blog noticed. There's also an up-to-date (as of 2006) guide to a dizzying number of current blogs, as well as evaluations of and instructions to providers like Blogger, TypePad, and Yahoo. This is definitely the best value for your dollar of all the books about blogs that I know.

Having had a blog for the past 5+ years, I believed the entire blogging phenomenon to be basic. Fun, but basic. I also simultaneously knew that I was deluding myself into thinking I fully understood the ins-and-outs to this world of personal on-line publishing. Little did I know that I needn't have been scared of undue complications when it comes to my blog... Mr. Jonathan Yang has made it clear that creating and manipulating a blog (and many other types of on-line personal media) is easy enough such that you can spend far less time immersing yourself in techno-jargon and more in communicating whatever you feel in whatever way you wish.

This book is heavy with fascinating topics, but at the same time extraordinarily easy to read. While I've already read the entire thing, this book will constantly serve as a refreshing guidebook the next time I'm blogging and wondering, "Alright... what now?"

This book breaks down what you need to know about starting or maintaining (or just reading) blogs into digestible bits. In keeping with the Rough Guides series, it is accessible but not patronizing, the tone is engaging, and it's ahead of the curve (pointing out blogs you might not otherwise learn about, etc.). I liked that it was a quick read so I didn't waste time and could get back to the internet - he definitely knows his audience!

this book will not leave my desk anytime soon. great source for information & all things blog: formatting, styles, and everything else you need to make your blog appealing and worth visiting frequently. the author is down to earth and doesn't overwhelm you with nerdy lingo. i would reccomend this to anyone that wants another creative outlet (it feels good to blog), as well as anyone that has internet access and can type.

This is a wonderfull book about blogging. It is mainly an introduction. The book starts with some general information about blogging. Next it explains the different kind of blogs, were to host your blog or use a server side blog. It also guides you how to write a blog, how to earn money with your blog. The last part of the book consits of a list per category of the most important blogs. It is not a book to read from cover to cover. I used it for inspiration and examples as well as instruction book. What I did was read a chapter and followed the links it provided. The design of the book is very pretty, well done a pleasure to read and a excellent introduction.

It doesn't go into details how to maintain a blog or how to do research for your blog e.g. using e-mail alerts, website monitors etc.
