I liked that book. There are some "dirty" secrets I wouldn't follow, but all in all it gives a huge number of useful tips on creating own blog, I haven't found anywhere else yet.
So if you run your own blog - and you want to position yourself as an expert - that should be a must read for you. Especially if you work in "software" industry.

I think it is one of the best books about blogging. I wanted to read 50 pages every day to finish it in 4 days, but once I started reading, I couldn't stop myself and read the whole book within 5-6 hours with pauses between every chapter. It is easy to read and has quite a lot of useful tips and tricks. But, there are some ideas that I do not agree with. For example, the author doesn't recommend writing a series of blog posts. If a topic is big for one post and small to write a book, I don't see ...more

I've been blogging with very limited success for a while. Primarily because I don't have any sort of system or plan. I just write about whatever I feel like when I feel like it. This book is helping me put together a strategy for how to take blogging seriously and hopefully enjoy more success.

In particular I liked the section about "routine" which works out like a checklist of things to do regularly for success.

The example blog code on GitHub is also very interesting to look at.

All in all, I think this book can be very helpful when you are trying to start your blog or even in later stages. There is a lot of useful information, which is divided into independent chapters. That means, you can safely skip whatever you already know or are not interested in, which is good. The style is fresh and concise, easy to read. The book itself is quite short, it should not be a problem to finish it quickly. I really appreciate its honesty, it does not try to convince you, that you’ll ...more

Let me preface my preview with this: 256 Bloghacks is not for everyone. Yegor doesn’t pull any punches - he hits it off with a swift sambo kick in the balls right on page one:

“If you have nothing to say to the world, this book is not for you.” (this is literally the first sentence of Preface)

“… there is a huge chance that your blog won’t be successful, because of _you_. Yes, because of who you are - a person without interesting ideas or a talent for writing” (Chapter 1.2 “Be yourself”)

Told ya!

Opinionated but practical advice on 2 things: writing about something you actually know about, and self-publishing that writing on the internet. Yegor's style will make you laugh out loud if you have a sense of humor about yourself. One gets the impression he is not even trying to be funny, but rather avoiding the lukewarm ambiguity which corporate America and the "blogosphere" treats as a virtue. Yegor doesn't mess around.

The books is easy and fun to read. Very helpful. Some points are definitely controversial but that's how every book ideally should be, in my opinion.
