How to Build Your Business with Blogging by Barb Drozdowich was just what I was looking for in a book. If you think you are too late to join the blogging world, think again. The author simplifies the process, explains the need, and walks you through it. As you are reading, the author instructs when you need to make notes about your thoughts whilst the information is still fresh. You will learn the pros and cons from an experienced blogger who has helped others to succeed, and learn the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org and what it will do for your company. She gives you places you can visit as helpful examples of her teaching.
I was impressed with the detailed and informative nature of Barb Drozdowich's How to Build Your Business with Blogging. You can expect fees for setting up your site, but she explains where they will come from and an idea of what you will get for the services. This book allows you to see what is needed for your blog site, depending on your intended outcome. The author keeps the reader's budget, growth, and technology knowledge in mind. I took notes as I read and enjoyed learning the secrets that had previously evaded me with regard to setting up a blog. Knowing when to write and what to write is vital. Following her guidelines will help you avoid running out of things to post. She keeps it fun and straightforward. I would highly recommend this book to current bloggers and those wondering if they have what it takes to start blogging.
