Excellent book for beginning bloggers,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Professional Blogging For Dummies (Kindle Edition)
This book is an excellent resource for the beginners (and some non-beginners). The book does an good job of walking the reader through blog software selection, graphic design, monetizing options, etc. I was particularly impressed to see the section on setting it up as a business (LLC, Corporation, etc.), a step that is often omitted in other books on the topic but is vitally important is the blog is truly supporting a business. I would have liked to see better coverage of website/blog analytics, as a firm understanding of your blogs analytics (e.g., how are users finding your site, which pages are most popular, where are your users from, etc.) can help a blogger determine if/when changes are needed.
Overall, a good book that gives the reader a good understanding of what goes into creating a profitable blog.

Hi Adam - Thanks for taking the time to review my book. I really appreciate your comments. On the Analytics -- I tried to give an overview of the most important things, hoping that readers who wanted more would delve into a full length book on analytics (of which there are many!) It is also a challenge to give enough information without being too specific to a particular program, or version of a program. In fact I felt that almost every chapter of this book could be its own full-length book.
