Editorial Reviews

There are millions of blogs, but only a tiny fraction have "hit the big time," i.e., built real audiences and influence, sometimes even earned real money. If you'd like to do any of those things, learn from the folks who've already done them. This book interviews 30 "blogging heroes" -- and, through them, it delivers insights you won't find anywhere else.

You'll meet welcome voices like Dave Taylor, whose computing help blog now attracts a million visitors a month. Here's Peter Rojas, who built Engadget into one of the Web's premier sites for the electronic gizmo freaks among us. Here's LifeHacker's Gina Trapani, whose personal productivity site's twice been honored by Time magazine. Their advice? Solid and wide-ranging, touching everything from self-promotion to software tools, finding your focus to fixing your foul-ups. The net result: a book capable of inspiring (or reinspiring) just about any blogger. Bill Camarda, from the January 2008 Read Only
