book review: blogging for creatives
From time to time, I've posted tips on taking blogs from good to great, although it's been a while. Those tips may show up again in the near future...but for now, let me tell you about a book that is all you'll really need.
Blogging for Creatives covers just about every topic you might need to know as a blogger, and it does so in a very visual way. There are tons of screen captures, both from blogging resources and actual blogs. (Shown on my blog is the British cover...Amazon has the American version.)
Whether you're just getting started, or looking to make a change or improvement, there are basics like choosing where to blog, and how to set up your template.
There are also more advanced things, like mobile blogging, creating podcasts, and adding sponsorship.
I should also say, I got to contribute a tip! Fun!
There's so much information in here, but it's in bite-sized chapters and sections. I've only skimmed it so far, because I know that once I start really getting into this, I'll be ready to try things out and make some adjustments to my own blog.
I do want to note that with a book like this, with lots of technology references, there are some things that won't always be up-to-date. But there's also lots of things that will remain true always. Any way you look at it, at around $13 on Amazon (at the time I'm writing this), you'll get your money's worth!
