Blogging Tips, the book every blogger should have

Yesterday, I received my copy of the Blogging Tips book. The book is printed on letter size paper and only with 98 pages. Blue text on white paper. Pure text, no screenshot. Whole book is stuffed with valuable information that every blogger should know.

My so-call book review

Frankly speaking, I was surprised by the book. The book is thin and has not a single picture, and printed with blue ink. Being spoiled by fancy media content, I was a bit disappointed.

But, I was wrong. I can’t stop after reading it. “Hey, it is full of useful information!” I have been blogging “like a pro” for years but still found tons of useful tips from the book!

You do not need to be a geek to read the book. It is not a technical book. The whole book is written in easy English and point form.

I highly recommend “Blogging Tips” to all bloggers. You should have one if you want to blog like a Pro.

  1. Blogs dunno-what as a way for people to share their their dreams + thoughts. It’s still that but blogging has evolved. A blog is stil as good as what you put into it.

    Blog your passion. LOrelle


  2. Wow, from the points listed out on the contents of the book, I’m getting the impression that its as serious as those “How to write a business plan” guidebooks. The fact that the book exists shows that blogging is becoming more of something mainstream and serious rather than a part-time leisure/hobby.

  3. Thanks for the wonderful review, and yes, that’s what it says. You’re so right, Danny, a blog is only as good as what you put in it, but it’s also only as good as you want it to be. It can control your life or become a part of your life, and finding the balance, because it can be addictive, is a challenge for many. :D

    There are some screenshots, but the point of the book was to be about “tips” not “how to”. There are plenty of how to books, blogs, and information out there, but no tips. We wanted to keep it simple and in the form of a checklist. This done, check. That done, check. And so on. Thus the slightly unusual style that defies most of these types of books.

    I’m very proud of it and double-so because one of my favorite bloggers says it’s a good book! :D Thank you , Liew!

  4. Moses: Make sure you contact me about the contest and I’ll send out a free autographed copy to your winner – written a little more legibly.

    Liew: I forgot when I was making excuses for my writing that I was signing the book with two dislocated fingers on my right hand. Try autographing a couple hundred books with two fingers out of commission on your signing hand! Nothing like timing. :D
