4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I wanted but a good start point 6 May 2014
By BeeJay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking for WordPress advice and the WordPress in the book goes more for the .org than the .com option. I have since bought WordPress for Dummies which looks as if it fits the bill.
Overall Blogging for Dummies looks a good buy for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTED 13 Jun 2014
By Bob - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The "Blogging for Dummies" arrived as promised, but some of the material in the book was missing. The book didn't appear to be complete. Some of the entries in the index were not included in the chapters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blogging for Dummies 20 Jan 2014
By Norman C. LeDonne Jr. - Published on
I have not yet finished reading this book...but I will have to say, even though there are a lot of things I already knew about blogging there is plenty that I did not know, or did not think about. I am hoping that by the time I am finished with it my blog,
"Everyday Pain Management Ideas" will be helpful to a wider audience and that I am actually making a little money from the ads and from the Amazon Associates account that I have linked to it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read...great reference! 1 Aug 2014
By Walter J Cross - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book with Youtube for Dummies because I wanted to get a clear understanding how to use blogging along with Youtube and similar media without having to do the trial and error thing. These books are well worth the time and investment if you want to get up to speed fast, and I love them.
