4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 16 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Google Blogger for Dummies (Paperback)
It seems to me that the one-star review for this book is unduly harsh. The book is certainly not a rip-off.

Some years ago I ran a fairly successful blog of my own, using Blogger as the host; eventually I had to give it up because of shortage of time. I was recently asked to advise a friend on how to start a new one, so I bought this book to refresh my memory.

In my judgement this is a most helpful and easy-to-follow guide, covering all the main points and providing a step-by-step procedure for many of the necessary steps. The only drawback is that the currently available edition is now a couple of years old, and Blogger, like everything else online, is continually under development. So some of the on-screeen windows have changed in their titles and tabs, compared with those illustrated in the book. In one or two cases, more detailed information would also be useful, e.g. how to register the blog with Technorati, a procedure which is, frankly, a pain in the arse.

Otherwise, well worth the price.
