What I liked: She uses some posts from herself and other bloggers as examples, so I found a few new-to-me sites that are pretty interesting.
What I didn’t like: A lot of the advice was directed to a “you” that seemed overly specific. It’s hard to explain, but I tripped up on it a lot. Tip 100—”Just write”—would have been a great introduction to blogging and this book on the whole. Also, Tip 99 entirely contradicts the title of the book. She says how amazing a blog was where a guy took a photo of everything he ate for a week.
The final word: This book’s helpful if you’re someone who wants to get into blogging but doesn’t know where to start and hasn’t, y’know, ever really read things on the internet before.
