I've had a gardening blog for six years; but within the first few pages of this book I realised that almost everything I've done so far is wrong.
I have 9 followers...and I don't think they are very engaged followers either. My posts have been erratic, the titles ambiguous, my photos weren't labelled!! How on earth did I expect to have an engaged readership??
Now I'm not saying that my blog will suddenly blossom into the most popular one online, because that's rather dependent on the quality of the content I create, but I have learnt some incredibly useful lessons that I can go back and apply to my old posts. I've even been brave enough to revamp it, change the core topic and ditch the stock template. It's not perfect, but it's a step in the right direct for sure.
Thank you so much for writing this book Amber, I feel like I have a chance now.
Many years ago while working in Japan I had a blog and I was always surprised when people I didn't know found it. Little did I know about the workings behind the scenes. If I'd had such a guide in 2006 I could have get it out to a wider audience, perhaps. Now that I'm working on reworking it I wanted some great advice on popularizing my writing and spreading it far.
'My Blogging Secrets' goes through the nuts and bolts such as building a following, SEO, photography and much more. The rest is up to you. So if you love writing and have an original voice then this is an excellent guide to developing your blog.
I found the book to be honest telling readers exactly as it is, it was extremely informative in a relatively short book compared to some reads like this on Amazon (!) and it was enjoyable on the whole.
I now feel more equipped to make a suitable decision as whether to blog or not and how I may go about it. I am fortunate to know wordpress inside out and most (but not all) of the social media advice, but there is some really valuable advice to be taken from this book/author. Definitely worth the buy.
I found her book to be a great read. Amber uses easy to understand language, which is great for the not so technically minded like myself! Her book is real, honest, and upfront about the challenges of building a blog as a business, and is full of great tips and tricks on how to create content people actually want to read. Some tips after I read them seemed so obvious that I can't believe I hadn't thought of them before!
Reading this was the kick up the backside I needed to stop 'thinking' about starting a blog again and just get on and do it.
I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who is totally new to blogging and needs some guidance on where to start, or like me who has had an extended break from blogging and needs a bit of a reintroduction into the blogosphere again.
I was pretty disappointed with this book to be honest. It has an autobiographical feel about it rather than being an actual guide or instructional book. Amber recounts times she was just lucky, and explains how her blog became successful but this information is already outdated and most of it doesn’t help a blogger in 2019. There are lots of typos and errors which made the book feel less professional.
It’s a shame, really. I’m just being honest so that other prospective buyers know what to expect. I will still read her blog because it’s very good.
