ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income By Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett is a pretty good book. I read the second edition which came out in 2010 according to the publishers page. I thought some of the information might be outdated because things change so fast on the internet but from what I can tell it is still just as good advice as it ever was.
Of course since both of the authors have been professional bloggers for a while now they do tend to talk about some things that are too advanced for me (for now anyway) such as buying and selling blogs. But who knows I might get there eventually and it if so it will be good to know where to find information about doing that!
The book contains lots of information for newbies too. One chapter is all about setting up a blog. Another is about writing a blog. There are chapters about income and earning strategies, promotion and marketing, social media and blogging, and secrets of successful blogs.
This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to learn about making money from blogging. A lot of this information can be found online of course. The authors have a lot of it on the blogs they write for such as Problogger, Copyblogger, and chrisg.com.
I like having books myself. You can grab a book and read through it even when the internet is down. And you don’t have to wait for a site to load. You can find this book at many libraries too…my local one has a copy. So you have no excuse not to check it out!
