Extremely basic. Not worth reading if you're more experienced than absolute beginner. I skimmed it, finding only a few things worth noting.

I read this hoping to find insights to improve my own blogging, and to improve how my website maintenance company, OptimWise, uses our blog for content marketing. Because of the way we use our blog, I skimmed the parts about earning directly from blogging.

This short guide gives an thorough overview of blogging from 'What is a Blog to How to Generate Income from a Blog'. Perfect for the absolute beginner and someone who has a slight knowledge of the subject.

The interviews with different successful bloggers near the end were quite useful!

This is a good overview of all aspects of blogging, from picking software to writing entries to monetizing it. It's light on details though, so it's better borrowed from the library than bought.

99% of the information in this book can be found on blogs online for free. There was only one section that I found particularly useful and that was when he suggested some websites/platforms to try out. Other than that, I didn't take much away from this book as I found the exact same information on the Internet.

This was a simple, well-laid out book! The author written instructions and tips on making a blogging business easy to follow. It's quite an inspiring book overall. I recommend it to anybody who wants to start a little something with the blog of their choice. Plus, it's not a terribly long read. It took me a day and a half to finish. I enjoyed it!

Im looking into starting my own blog and wanted to get an overview of what that might entail; this book fit that need perfectly. Each chapter covers everything you need to know and in a way that if you just wanted to skim through, you could, which is what I did for the most part. And if you want a little more indepth information, it covers that too.

In that mind set of "Learning Something New Everyday" this was very interesting. Of the books I looked at on this subject this one had the detail I was interested in, but got to the point in a succinct, organized fashion.

Informative

This book was short, to the point and informative. I found the writing style made it easy to comprehend and helped inspire me to think a little bigger.

Good tips, but poorly written. It's usually a bad sign when I have to fight the overwhelming urge to grab a red pen while reading a book...
