If you don't know ProBlogger, you should, at least if you're interested in blogging: it's the go-to blog about blogs. Yes, I love meta and the word "blog" will come frequently in this post.
In any case, as I left the academic world and decided to try something new, I thought about starting blogs for money. I love to write, I seem to be pretty good at managing and producing content, and I'm sure there are things I could share with the world... for a profit.
The book goes through the three steps of making money from blogs:
Setting up a blog
Making it popular
Earning money from it
The most important lesson I got from the book is the importance of choosing a niche; it helps build a loyal community, get expertise and great, contextualized advertising. However, except for the generic "start by identifying your own interests, passions, and energy levels for topics", there's not a lot of direction about how to choose a profitable niche. There also isn't much about search engine optimization (which I fortunately covered in another book) or about keyword research. However, a lot of the things that Rowse and Garrett hold important (niching, ads, etc) aren't necessarily the be-all and end-all of popular blogging.
The one section I found really useful was the monetizing section where the authors explain all about choosing the right ads, affiliate programs and other revenue streams.Read more ›
For $16.49 I was expecting an in-depth guide explaining how to make money from your blog. Instead, this book feels like a compilation of inspirational, non-descriptive blog posts with extremely general information, and comes off like an "I did it, now you can too!" seminar that leaves you without anything specific or the money you had in your pocket before you walked in.
The book breaks down like this:
1. Blogging for Money
2. Niche Blogging
3. Setting up your blog
4. Blog Writing
5. Blog Income and Earning Strategies
6. Buying and Selling Blogs
7. Blog Promotion and Marketing
8. Build a Sticky Blog Community
9. Social Media and Your Blog
10. Secrets of Successful Blogs
11. Creating Something Worthwhile

When I learned about this book a few years back I purchased it because I heard so many good things about both authors, Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett. Darren is a full-time blogger that makes six-figure income himself through his famous Problogger blog and the highly successful digital photography school (DPS). I believe there isn't anybody who is somebody on the Internet that did not hear about Darren.
Chris is also a full-time blogger, an Internet marketing coach, and most of all the creator of a "five-star" course on authority blogging.
People purchase things from people they trust. What other method is the best to gain someone's trust then demonstrating your extensive knowledge and expertise in the topic through blogging or published books. It is not enough, however, that a person declares that he/she is an expert; people that read the person's book and/or blog, attend a course, Webinar or workshop that he/she leads are the ones that need to add the adjective next to the name of the "expert", or affirm the person's true expertise.
This is where Chris Garrett comes in. His "Authority Blogging" course is the best on the Internet, because he gives his own expertise without holding anything back. If you really want to succeed in earning a nice living from blogging, you must enroll into Chris's program. You will be 99% there.Read more ›

This is a wonderful book for me to learn from someone who has made mistakes and gives the results of his experience. Very much appreciated.
I really did enjoy the first part of the book but as it went on I found myself less engaged. It seems to repeat itself quite a bit and expands on topics that I don't think needed... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sherisse
