Blogging Books

1. Top Ten Secrets of Successful Mommy Bloggers

Straight away you can tell why I would have read this. I'm a mum on a mission to be successful blogger and anything that wants to reveal blogging secrets that I may not have heard of, I'm in.

So is it worth the investment? Absolutely! It taught me how to be productive as a blogger, or at least it reminded of what I already knew from my old corporate life and how applying similar methods would keep me productive. Most importantly it teaches you what to avoid and how to monetize your blog. Its 98 pages long, and whilst it may be basic for some with more experience, this is a great starting point for a newbie.

2. Blogging Made Easy

Once again, who wouldn't want to read this. I came from a place of complete ignorance to blogging, didnt have a clue how people were making money from writing words on a screen. I used to think "wow, these people are so generous, giving away all of this info every week for free!" LOL, that was me only a few months ago, so of course once out of my limited view, I now need to know how I can do this in the easiest way possible.

This book will do just that for you and tons more, including step by step social media set up, which will form a large part of your blogging success.

This book has single handily changed the way i approach blogging and marketing my blog to my targeted audience. For anyone new to blogging, you may be wondering why 50,000 or 100,000 blog page views is so important, *something i will explain further in my next post! However this book will get you there faster and you'll be so happy you did. It's the difference between blogging for fun and making serious money.

5. Blogging For Dummies

It's no shame to admit, i felt like a dummy too when I just started. I would read up on blogging, then look for explanations on what i just read, until the penny would drop and I'd think jeeeez, "that's what it is!" Blogging feels like a mindfield and sometimes still can, but as time goes on it will start to fall into place....i promise! This book was my saviour, i couldn't read not one more article, or open another internet tab. Having this book as beginning source of info, everything to get you started in all in one place - priceless.

6. How My BLOG Got 1 Million Visits In 7 Months

oh how i wish this was the title of one of my blog posts. In fact, i'm setting forth a goal to do just that, it's still early days for me and this goal is doable but requires al ot more than just writing and uploading. This book will teach you the fundamentals of intentional & strategic blog i'll let you know when i get there ( if you do it before me, please let me know with the #ididit i the comments below.)

7. Write Blog Posts Readers Love

Well I like to go one further by writing blog posts 'my' readers will love. The most important aspect of your blog is in establishing your target audience and then catering to their needs. Of course you have to write on a topic that interests you, but its the content, tone and character of your posts that will keep your audience coming back for more. This book will teach you just how to do that and more.

8. She Means Business

If you are struggling to grasp the concept of blogging, this book will help to open your mind. Content is always on a bloggers mind, without it its just empty space.....this book will teach how you to turn your interest into a business to be enjoyed by your like minded audience.
