Problogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income – Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett

Posted on 9 July 2010. Filed under: Book Reviews | Tags: , |

This book is the beginner’s guide to blogging, when to do it, how to do it, how to make money but not what to write. It is great for the beginner or the almost beginner.

I found this book to be really useful and there’s one major problem…I didn’t read it in front of the computer and do all of the exercises and research while reading so I’ll have to read it again. I read this book with two things in mind. The first thing in my mind was this blog, I really want to make it look better and make it easier for people to navigate as well as making it much easier on the eye. The second thing was another blog I have in mind. Being my second blog I’m trying to do the research first to ensure there actually is a market for it and to ensure I do it right. This book is perfect for that as it guides the beginner to the websites where you can do the research that counts and this is why I say you need to read it in front of your computer so you can stop and do the research. Don’t know if I’ll do the other blog as I have a lot more research but if I do start it up I’ll mention it here.

I bought this book directly from Darren Rowse, himself, at a media conference, but you can see more information here as well as clicking on the link to buy it.

If you’re worried by typos then be warned as there are a couple in this book, but it compared very favourably with one of Brad Sugars books which I had to stop reading fairly early on, there were just too many typos and I couldn’t focus on the content. This book is much better and I’m sure the 3rd edition will be better still. It’s a good read, easy language and well set out with lots of links and places to go to sign up for useful information. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
