Publisher's Summary

Do you like wasting time? Do you love having thousands of people come to your website and not even bother to subscribe to your mailing list? Are you trying to attract people to your site that never pay a dime for information?

There are some big problems with the blogging approach to making a living for your writing. This audiobook will help you solve those problems, make more money doing less work, put out better content that is more valuable to readers, and make much more efficient use of your precious time.

My name is Buck Flogging. Having owned a computer with an internet connection for less than one year, I started my first blog. I knew absolutely nothing about blogging or computers. In fact, a week before I started a blog was the first time I’d ever heard the word “blog.” It was suggested I start one of these “blog” things by a co-worker who had checked out some of my writing and thought the web was a good place to get some of my writing out there in the world.

And blog I did. I wrote post after post after endless post for years. By the end of 2013, seven years into this blogging malarkey, over 700 posts under my belt, 55,000 comments strong, 6-figure annual revenue generation, with a global Alexa ranking in the top 90,000 and 5,000 daily visitors to my site, I pulled the plug on it with no warning.

I worked so hard for seven years to build a blog from absolute nothing to an authority website in my niche. Why, after all that hard work to arrive at such an enviable place, would I just hastily yank it down?

You’ll find out in this audiobook. It was not without good reason.

Blogging, for writers hoping to expose their information to an audience, make efficient use of their time, and make a full-time living with their words, is a distant second best to the strategies laid out in Kill Your Blog: 12 Reasons Why You Should Stop F#$%ing Blogging!

Breeze through this information-saturated and entertaining short audiobook now. It will open your eyes to a world of possibilities that lie outside of the outdated blogging approach.

    "This one was really helpful..."
    Where does Kill Your Blog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The language is a little inappropriate, but the content is solid. I only made a few of the minor suggestions, and I already feel better about my writing, my domains, etc...

    "Blogging is Dead, Long Live the Blog!"
    What made the experience of listening to Kill Your Blog the most enjoyable?

    Matt is not only an educator, but an entertainer. If the name "Buck Flogging" makes you chuckle, then you'll probably appreciate Matt's sense of humour.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kill Your Blog?

    I think Matt's approach to controlling the order in which he delivers information to his readers would be helpful to writers in a niche on a complicated subject which requires them to educate their readers in order for them to really become fans.

    For others, in a niche less technical, blogging might still be worthwhile. For example, the website The Oatmeal is about telling stories and making an emotional connection with the author's audience. The Oatmeal comics get passed around from person to person, providing free advertising. Then, people who love them, buy the physical products (posters, books, etc).

    So, you have to figure out what kind of online business model will work best for what you are trying to do. But, as Matt clearly explains, blogging may be bogging you down.


    Have you listened to any of Matt Stone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's definitely more comfortable behind the microphone now, than he was when he first started. He even does voices, people. :)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It's entirely possible for an author to self-publish and make a living from his or her work. If your goal is to write books, and sell them, it would be worth your time to consider some of the methods Matt has found allowed him to achieve a decent income from his writing.

    Any additional comments?

    There are some great ideas here -- well worth the listen! I may still do some blogging, but now I have some exciting new things to try as well. I'm actually pretty jazzed about the potential here. Thanks Buck!
