Reader Jeff Lippincott of Jlippin.com
says, "This is a book I recommend anyone interested in Internet marketing read and study.
I liked it overall. But I didn't like the title to the book because it gives the consumer
the idea that there is real money to be made blogging. At page 88 the author finally
acknowledges that bloggers should not expect to earn anything more than modest amounts
of revenue each month. And modest means minimal! The book has the following chapters:
1. Quick starts: Top 10 lists
2. Blogs and search optimization (SEO)
3. Generating revenue with your blog
4. Managing your blog
5. Extras and inspiration
"This book attemps to cover all aspects of successful blogging. It introduces the reader
to Blogger and Wordpress, which are the two main free blog-hosting services online. It
also covers the various hosting options and what to look for in a host. I have blogs at
both Blogger and Wordpress, and I think they are wonderful hosting services. This book
also covers how to create, maintain and promote a blog.
"According to the authors you can monetize your blog with either contextual ads, ad
networks, or affiliate programs. Of course, it takes a very popular blog (one with lots
of traffic) for much money to be made from any of these sources. And if you have a blog
that is that successful, then you'd be better off selling your own products and services
where you make all the money instead of collecting a wimpy commission.
