Today my Bright and Colorful People, I want to introduce you to a new series that I want to start. I thought I would take you through the books that are currently on my bookcase. I have them all organized by color - from some serious inspiration from Lisamarie of Paper and Glam. I've been wanting to go through all of the books that I have and I decided to make it into a series. That way you can follow along and help keep me motivated.
I just finished my first book off my bookcase. Actually, I just got this one from Amazon Prime so it really hasn't had time to sit on my bookcase, but I want to include it anyways. Its blue and is a pretty simple read. The book is called "Blog, Inc" and is written by Joy Cho. I want to give you a review of the book and some lessons that I learned from it. I also want to give you my rating overall.
Rating: 3.5 stars
The reason I give this book three and a half stars is because this book is written for beginner bloggers. I have been blogging for quite awhile and understand the basic techniques that go with all of it. While this book takes you from actually starting the blog to monetizing it, it focuses more on how to get started and where to take it from there. I didn't need too much of the information it gave me, but I read it all the way through. I'm happy I bought it because it gave me a chance to go back to the beginning and really take a look at how I'm running my blog.
I focused on what the book was actually saying and then took that information and applied it to my own blog. I was struck by tons of inspiration and received many ideas from this book. This book has helped me refocus on my blog. I also got more information on how to actually make money on my blog, without seeming spammy or sell-y. This book, while mostly for beginners, is still insightful and helpful for those who have been doing this for awhile. I definitely recommend this book.
If you have any recommendations for books that I should read, PLEASE comment below. I'm always on the lookout for more information.
