The author has two themes intertwined: how to do blogging, and how to generate some income through the blog. Neither theme is particularly deeply explored, nor well explained, for anyone who is a true novice. Since most creative procedures, including running a business, are not well-described as linear procedures, inexperienced teachers often find themselves referring to components of the process -- usually with jargon -- before they are ready to discuss them. While the inexperienced reader needs guideposts explaining which topic is being foreshadowed and which is center stage, these are not forthcoming.
Aside from my disappointment with the structure of the work, the jargon, and the jumbling together of components of the poorly ordered sections, I have two others.
A strong disappointment is the complete lack of concrete examples to illustrate the issues under discussion. These would have gone a long way to mitigating the jargon.
Another strong disappointment is the extremely poor editing, even proofreading, evident throughout. Many sentences contain extra words. Other sentences repeat the same word but with different meanings. Finally, the author repeats some information several times without explaining the need for such emphasis.
The reason this work receives any stars at all is that I do come away with some ideas for further research. But they will all need much further research before I can even hope to understand what he was talking about.
This is a beneficial read for those bloggers who want to utilize the ad space as a source of income. But not so much for bloggers who are beyond starting out and want to use their articles as an avenue of income instead of selling space on their blog.
Author of "Bible Journey: Your True Identity is Found in Jesus Christ"
was offered to me for free in exchange of my honest review and I gladly followed up on the offer.
(The eBook is free at the time of this review anyway...)
It really helped me put more structure into my next steps on adding elements to my web pages that I was not
aware of and set me up with a long list of sites and ideas I will follow next as well as how bloggers can generate
income from their sites.
The book is short and to the point. Very helpful to wannabe bloggers.
