After all those years, I know the basics of setting up a blog and generating content, but I struggle with posting consistently and I'm a dilettante at design. I was hoping this book would provide the solutions to my lapses. It didn't. It does, however, provide a lot of information about setting your blog up as a business, inc I've been blogging since It does, however, provide a lot of information about setting your blog up as a business, including writing a business plan and pursuing advertising.
I don't see myself doing either of those things, but I didn't know anything about them either, so it was good to be exposed to the information. I learned a fair amount I didn't know, but I'm not sure how pertinent it actually is for me. Maybe what I need is to take Britt Bravo's blogging class again. Or for Britt to finally write her book View 1 comment.
Dec 05, Ananya Juneja rated it did not like it. So when I first started blogging last month lol , someone recommended the the book Blog, Inc. Now I'm pretty good with technology and I've been pretty familiar with the NetWorld for many years. So for me, I didn't really get too much out of this book. This book is really geared to someone who is unfamiliar with blogs and social media. I really wa So when I first started blogging last month lol , someone recommended the the book Blog, Inc.
I really wanted more tips than just 'advice questions' from past bloggers. And I feel that starting a blog requires a different approach then it did a year ago when this was written. So overall I would give this book a C-. Maybe that's a little harsh -- but I'm being honest with you guys and I don't feel that I really got out of it anything that can't be found by googleing 'how to blog'.

Honestly more a 2. On the whole, it covers a blog's life from the very conception or pre-conception? Delving deeper Although published in , some of the book is already quite outdated, though that's pretty typical of any book written about computers or the internet, in that they date exceedingly fast. The stuff on creating and establishing a blog, yep, got that covered, though I like to read it for general ideas anyway.
Really, the book seems to jump from very basic do's and don'ts in blog ettiquette do: post regularly. Am I the only one who noticed the gap between the two topics? Joy Cho's voice is strong, entertaining, and informative throughout, so I can't knock the writing, even if I do question how heavy it is or isn't on actual content. Aug 22, Dena Batch of Books rated it it was ok Shelves: adult-books , non-fiction. It's okay. Nothing new. This is a good book if you're new to blogging and social media because it goes over things from the very beginning. Picking out a name, blogging platforms, and what to post.
There are a lot of interviews with successful bloggers who share their experiences. It's not what I was hoping for and it's nothing that you can't find in a few helpful articles online.
However, if you're brand new to blogging, Blog, Inc will be a helpful book. Content: clean My blog: Batch of Books.

Mar 02, Kristin Antosz rated it liked it Shelves: educational , blogging-creativity. A good resource if you're brand-spanking new to blogging, but you can skip this if you're a veteran blogger there's not much new to take away if that's the case.
Nov 30, Kelli Cooper rated it liked it. The second half was more helpful given my prior knowledge. Summary: Mostly too basic or too advanced for me, but I still enjoyed how much it made me think. This book starts you right at the beginning, with helpful advice for picking a blog topic, a title, and a blogging platform. While these are obviously things I already have, I still appreciated these sections.

I thought the author had some great advice. She made me revisit a lot of my original choices to decide if I was still happy with them. I think we can all use that kind of prompting every once in Summary: Mostly too basic or too advanced for me, but I still enjoyed how much it made me think. I think we can all use that kind of prompting every once in a while! As someone who started blogging almost 4 years ago, I really should be asking myself if all my original blogging choices are a good fit for me. She comes from the lifestyle blogger world and that's clear in her choices of examples and bloggers to interview.
That didn't make her advice irrelevant to me though! Sometimes I did feel a little left out, but overall, I think I learned even more because she came from a slightly different perspective than I do.
She certainly talked about monetization and sponsors in a way that seems to be very rare in the book blogging world. Some of her monetization ideas felt like a bad fit for me for that reason. Others felt too advanced - I'm definitely not to the point where I'm treating my blog as a business! She also had some ideas that I think could work for me though. Even though I'm obviously not blogging for the money if I were, I wouldn't blog about books!
Even though I wasn't the target audience for this book, I felt as though I got a lot out of it. I would, of course, highly recommend it to bloggers for whom it's a better fit - new or aspiring bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, and those looking to get serious about blogging as a career. However, I would also recommend it to fellow book blogging veterans. It's a thought-provoking read that will cause you to revisit your early blogging choices and give you a slightly different perspective on blogging.
This review was originally posted on Doing Dewey Dec 29, Marilyn Nimz rated it it was amazing. I was really excited to see that someone had finally written a good book about blogging. It doesn't seem like there are many other books out there written by bloggers that I follow and respect.
That's why I was so thrilled when I saw that Joy Cho had come out with this book. I feel that it is the perfect extension of her blog and am so grateful that she would share this personal advice on how to get your blog up and running the proper way. The book is broken up really well into different categor I was really excited to see that someone had finally written a good book about blogging.
The book is broken up really well into different categories which also include personal interviews with other famous bloggers and how they got their start. The book is also filled with encouraging words that I feel every human can relate to.

Oh, the perkiness. Everything is gonna be just great. While one of this book's main points is about being authentic, this paper-cutter blogger's voice sounds like it's issued through clenched teeth--and I'm not specifically pointing to this author, but all who adopt this twinkle-toothed tone. I guess that works for people raking in success from their blogs, but it isn't authentic, not on anyone. This book also seems outdated, even for Blogging was way out of the "Wild West" territory by tha Oh, the perkiness.
Blogging was way out of the "Wild West" territory by that year. Overall, this book only scratches the surface and basically tells you what all such books tell you: where to go to find the information you need, in the most general terms.
