How to blog a book - As catchy as the title and more informative than you can imagine.
Some books need no review, at all. They speak for themselves. The description of the book is enough to make any reader interested in the topics mentioned want to buy it. This is one such book. But as a reviewer, I want to record here how very informative I found this book – both as a blogger and as an aspiring author. Not to bore the readers with long, praising paragraphs, I am going to list out what made this book click for me (that might probably be why I would recommend this to all the bloggers and writers out there – even those who have an idea to become one.)
WHAT MAKES THIS BOOK CLICK FOR ME (AS A BLOGGER AND A WRITER)
· Breaks down complex jargon into simple, understandable phrases and gives detailed explanation on each and every topic (even those that seem way too obvious).
· Doesn't omit any step in the whole process of writing, publishing and promoting a book. Also gives some tweaks for authors who really want to go the extra mile.
· The writer addresses the reader directly and gives out examples of success stories evenly all through the book, and reading some of those blog topics (that have obviously become successful books) make you want to write a blog book yourself.
· The reasons as to why you should actually do it and any skeptic questions that you might have are answered with the risk factors and the benefits (okay, no jargon - pros and cons) are clearly explained.
· The whole layout of the book is pleasing (yes, this is visible even in the digital copy).
· It clearly shows that Blogging a book is a time consuming process, that requires constant attention to grow and flourish - but it also points out why it is all worthwhile.
· If you are an existing blogger, you will come to realise what you have been doing right and wrong so far and correct your mistakes. If you are new, you will be able to avoid the major mistakes.
· Explains the legal aspects and copyright laws to quench your doubts about blogging a book.
· It also has conversations with bloggers who have successfully blogged a book. (or booked a blog!)
· Starting with the motivation necessary to start the blog to the drive necessary to keep it going and finally the steps you need to take to get noticed - it has everything. So much so that you would not have realised so far that blogging had so many intricate details to be covered.
· That said, this book doesn't force any particular genre or topic on you. Even after all these detailed instructions, you are encouraged to choose your own topic!
If this detailed (but in no way exhaustive) list doesn’t encourage aspiring readers to go for this book, you will miss a very relevant, easy to understand and follow guide to your stardom doing what you have always wanted to do – but didn’t know exactly how to accomplish.
