the best blogging book…ever

In books on 12/30/2009 at 6:13 am

Whether you’re a seasoned blogger or a rookie, Blogging for Bliss deserves a spot on your reading list for the new year. This little gem by Tara Frey is so packed with goodness, it’s hard to do it justice. Think Artful Blogging meets tech geek – the perfect blend of information and eye candy. My only problem with it is that I can’t decide whether to keep it on the coffee table or the computer desk. It’s that good.

The book covers photography, blogging platforms, etiquette, and everything in between with easy-to-follow instructions and links to useful online sources. However, the layout keeps the reader from getting too bogged down in the technical aspects. It’s also chock full of bios sprinkled with personal blogging tips and enchanting screenshots from some of the most beautiful journals on the web. At first glance, I recognized many of the names but was elated to discover so many fresh new reads.

It’s my new fave. It has a little something for everyone. If you’re a blogger, this book is for you.

p.s. Thank you for all of your kind words in response to yesterday’s tutorial. This space wouldn’t be the same without you in it.

  1. I can’t wait to make your project from yesterday..as soon as my fabric is all unpacked. I have read Blogging for bliss…it is lovely!

  2. chiming in late about your tutorial–love it! need it! plan to make it!

  3. I have been looking at every local bookstore for this book and I just can’t find it, I guess I will just have to order it after reading your praise for it.

    I thought that it would be good. Any variation of Artful blogging is a hit in my book.

    Thanks for the review.

  7. Thank you very much for the tip. I, too, am new to blogging and after reading your review I phoned the bookstore to put one on hold for me. I’ll be reading it this afternoon. So excited!
