Chris Garrett and Darren Rowse, two people that I highly respect, and who are both directly responsible for my career and inspiring its continued growth have come together and published a book on blogging called simply enough Problogger.
From Chris Garrett:
The book is our combined experiences in professional blogging. Making a full time income either directly or indirectly by building effective blogs.
I haven’t had a chance to give it a once over yet, as neither Chris nor Darren have sent me the sample chapter which you can get by signing up for the e-mail list on the book’s site. (contact me guys) I do plan on purchasing the book to review it, as well as maybe learn a few more tricks on how to get myself closer to their level.
Here are some things that you will probably learn from the book:
- How Bloggers Make Money
- Direct Income Earning vs. Indirect Income Earning methods
- Why Niches are Important
- 20 Ingredients for a successful blog post
- Optimizing advertising
- Which advertising platforms work best
- Expert analysis of Technorati’s Top Blogs – why they work
Some other details about the book include that it is 280 pages long, and will be published by Wiley on April 18th and should begin shipping on the 28th. All of the attendees at SOBCon are going to get a copy.
Will it be worth the money, or is this another book that’s a great idea, but gives information that most people can’t replicate due to the ever changing rules online? There is no such thing as timeless advice when it comes to making money online, but Chris Garrett and Darren Rowse are names that I know and trust, so if nothing else, this books should be inspirational.
