    Very helpful

    I am technology-challenged and other books I've read are not basic enough for a blogging beginner, but this one is. That's not to say it is too elementary for people who are more knowledgeable. Where other books use a vocabulary unfamiliar to me, this book includes definitions and explains everything in understandable terms. The layout and organization are great. A very helpful book.

    Very good but content could be better tailored.

    This book should be split into two volumes. There is a lengthy portion tailored to businesses and this section should be elaborated on in another volume leaving one volume for non business interest. Otherwise the book is very easy to read and full of good information. I highly recommend it.

    Great introduction to blogging and I'd suggest it to bloggers ju

    Great introduction to blogging and I'd suggest it to bloggers just starting out as well as those who have been with it for a year or less! 

    When I started blogging on July 9, my husband thought it would be a nice idea to get me a few blogging books.  I read about half of Blogging for Dummies by Susannah Gardner and Shane Birley, put it down, and then picked it back up again a week ago to finish the book.

    I literally read this book from cover to cover.  I had never read a Dummies book before, but I have been missing out!

    Blogging for Dummies was filled with great facts for any person out there who is starting or working on a blog.  Even bloggers who have been at it for a while would benefit from some of the information involved.

    Some of the things I learned were. . .

    Web hosting and creating my own domain name
    How to use a Blogger, WordPress or Tumblr blog
    Commenting – basically anything you can think of including blocking spam
    Podcasting, using photos, using video
    Advertising on the blog
    Statistics and analytics
    Promoting the blog

    I ended up with sticky notes all over this book that contained great tidbits of information I can add to my blog to make it better, as well as software, plug-ins, applications, and other blogs I can use as resources.

    If you’re interested in starting a blog or have one and want to make it better, check out Blogging for Dummies!

    What is one of your favorite blogs or websites?  It doesn’t have to be book related!

    Thanks for reading,

    Rebecca @ Love at First Book
