An excellent introduction,
This review is from: ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income (Paperback)I bought this book after reading the other reviews - and was mindful that I am a relative novice (so the comments that it is not the best choice for more experienced bloggers or techies may hold good).
I found it well written and with lots of practical examples and useful links. I don't know if the authors' claims to make a six figure income are exaggerated, but they do put this very much in perspective...making it clear that it is not a get-rich-quick scheme...so I felt their own experiences to be genuinely relaid.
As someone who is simply interested in getting a handle on how a site can be monetarised, I found this a really helpful introduction that cut through all the tons of conflicting information I had been grappling with.
It was easy to read (digested in a couple of days) and within a matter of days I was able to put together a self-hosted blog and add adsense to it...so I'd say it was definitely what I needed to make me that one step further, but it would also be useful to absolute beginners.
