Top Customer Reviews
I highly recommend the book, and suggest any blogger read the interviews, as much useful information is there. Haas conducts the interviews skillfully, asking why they started their blog, what makes for a successful blog, and their advice for other bloggers.
The meat of the book is a series of very informative and complete interviews with the likes of well-known politics bloggers from all points of the political spectrum: There's Arianna and Jane Hamsher, but also Lew Rockwell, Reason`s Nick Gillespie, Thomas Lifeson (from American Thinker), Tyler Cowen (Marginal Revolution) and even Gateway Pundit`s very own Jim Hoft - each sharing their respective experiences getting their renowned blogs off the ground; and their insights into what works, what doesn't, plus other advice for budding political bloggers.
Interviews with successful old media transplants such as Andrew Malcolm (who blogs at Top of the Ticket for the LA. Times) and Politico's Ben Smith are also part of the book.
There's also some more general information on the rise of political blogs and how to start your own, which savvy blog readers will probably find not as valuable as those who are new to new media - but the interviews are definitely fun to read and enlightening no matter how long you've been blogging or reading blogs, in my opinion.
