The Million Dollar Blog, by Natasha Courtenay-Smith, is an advice book written mainly for those who wish to run their blog as a business. The emphasis is on how to monetise the venture, be that directly through the blog itself or by using it to draw in clients to an endeavour it supports.

The book starts by encouraging everyone to blog. It then goes on to discuss the best way to prepare for this new adventure. It covers content, branding, the importance of aesthetics, and of finding a niche that

I will freely admit in the last two or three months, my blogging mojo has pretty much crawled away and hidden under a rock with its eyes closed and its fingers in it ears.

An invitation to read this book appeared in my inbox and it intrigued me. Yes it sounded like there was a lot of info for the blogger just starting out but it also sounded like it was full of info and ideas that could help a seasoned and slightly jaded blogger like myself.

Netradičně tradiční
Všechny možné obecné rady, které kolují po internetu shrnuté do jedné knihy. Nejzajímavější z obsahu byly rozhovory s úspěšnými blogery.
Jádrem Descartovy filozofie je motto: "Myslím, tedy jsem." Filozofií Courtenay-Smithové je heslo: "Bloguji, tedy jsem."

Sama kompozice této knihy působí jako blog. Větší kapitoly se dělí na podkapitolky a článečky. Je tu použito různorodé množství fontů, tučným písmem se nešetří a čtenář se nemusí jako klíště držet přísně chronologického pořadí, může si přeskakovat a vracet se k těm pasážím, které ho zprvu tolik nezaujaly. Například se dá publikace číst tak, že napoprvé vynecháte všechny rozhovor

Every blog starts from somewhere, blogs are not immediate overnight successes and are all about building your audience and community of readers. A bit like businesses, blogging is all about understanding your niche – what can you bring to the digital world that no one else is? Understanding your niche is essential to understanding your audience, allowing you to share your interests and passions with each other to build a community.

The book also covers how to make money from blogging through vari

Prie pačios knygos neturiu ko prikibti. Ji puiki! Daug informacijos ir naudingos. Ypač pradedantiesiems, kurie dar neturi patirties rašant tinklaraštį. Net gi ir tiems, kurie dar net nežino ką nori rašyti. 😊 Viskas surašyta smulkiai, aiškiai ir paprastai. Nuo tinklaraščio idėjos išsigryninimo iki internetinio puslapio paleidimo, bei pagrindinių socialinių tinklų aptarimo.

Taip pat, gausu informacijos ir įmonėms, kodėl verta rašyti blogą, kaip save pateikti ir kodėl šiais laikais tai net gi būtina

I picked this up from the library as I've just started blogging again after 4 years off. I wish I had this book the first time around! Clearly outlining the hard work that is essential for a successful blog, every chapter also has real life case studies in the form of interviews with huge all-stars of the blogosphere. From reading this I now have a clear plan for my blog, I have a niche (a word I still hate but have to accept!)and I am confidently creating content for my blog. I've posted 7 days ...more

I really enjoyed the book, it is full of good advises, examples and even instructions about what the blogging sphere is about, how to blog, how to create content, how to start, how not to give up and what to do in case you are really tempted to do so.
there are a lot of "to do" and "don'ts", list pf ready to be implemented ideas and hacks on how to start.
It's a good read for those who are looking into digital marketing, have started or are looking to start an own blog.

This is an absolute must for anyone who is serious about running a blog. The writer takes you right to the very heart of the industry and uses the experiences of well established bloggers to emphasise relevant points. The book is well laid out with information presented in bite sized chunks making it far easy to absorb. I’m reading it for the second time to ensure I took everything onboard.

Good read! Although the book isn't specific to any country, some information may not apply to certain countries.
However, great examples of real and successful entrepreneurs with lessons to learn from and inspirations to take.
There are really good lists of resources, softwares, tips and tricks too.
Would recommend for someone thinking of starting an online blog and an online business.

As I already have a blog and I've got years of research on the topic, this book has nothing new to offer me. However, for those who have no idea where to start, how to promote and how to monetize a blog, this is a pocket-size bible that gives you full knowledge of the whole picture.

It's good for those who just starting bloging or wants to start but don't know how. The book also will be helpful if someone lost hope and giving up bloging. But all it could be placed on 70 pages but not on 270 🤷🏻♀ ...more

I've literally just finished this book and can't wait to put everything I've learned into action!

Natasha, thank you so much for this integral manual! It has lit a fire within me and provided me with the inspiration to just get out there and get on with my blogging idea.

This is a great book for anyone who has started a blog but is losing motivation. Rather than any step by step method for achieving success, this book inspires with great stories of other blogs success and some the hints and tips they've gathered along the way. An essential read for anyone blogging.

Inspiring and eye-opening

This book covers everything you need to get started with blogging. It is really useful and inspiring to read the case studies and every time I finished a chapter I was looking forward to working on my blog, Simp!y Shine.

When I first started reading it I was like yessss here’s a book with handy blog tips and life stories from successful bloggers . But now I’m near the end I’m finding it a tedious read .

Excellent book if you're interested in blogging.

I'm just starting out and the calmness and reassurance in this book crushes the overwhelming feeling of starting a blog.

I liked it. For someone who is a daily user of the internet, but stays away from social media this was an interesting read. It gives a great overview of how the Blogging world works and how it can be effectively monetised. As an introvert I did find the section on social media intimidating, I'm not the sort of person who needs to share everything I do each day. The book has given me few ideas to identify my niche topic and I hope to use the knowledge learnt from this book to start a Blog of my o ...more
