Insightful perspective and how-to blogging guide

Beside the fact you fill like Thomas M. Baradziej is screaming in your ears whatever it is he is reading, the content is both insightful and full of step-by-step directions.
The more technical directions are less suitable for an audiobook I listen to while driving, as there is no way a normal person can memorize those in one listen, An accompanying PDF with a summary of those would have been helpful.
However, all in all I believe I really learned a lot and would probably implement considerable parts. I actually started to again consider promoting my business using blogging, which is not something that was on my first priority before reading this book.

You WILL learn at least one thing

great content, ideas and tips. A must if you plan on having your own blog, but the concepts are good for other projects too.

full of information and how to

this is by far the most extensive and useful book on how to create a blog I've read. it includes detailed instructions for everything. it does assume you use wordpress however so if you have a blog already that uses something else you'll have to adjust a bit.

A must-have book to succeed as a blogger!

Any additional comments?

Raj has done an amazing job in this book outlining and detailing steps you need to take if you want to be a successful blogger. If you are a novice blogger just getting started or thinking of starting, this is a must-read book for you. If you are already a successful blogger, this book will still give you ideas that you may not have thought of and make your blogs even more successful. It covers the entire gamut including conceptualization, strategy, tactics, process, technicalities, branding, implementation, ongoing productivity, growth and much more. The book narration is excellent as well. I highly recommend this book.
