    more from this reviewer

    Great for beginners and intermediate users

    This is a great resource for anyone considering a blog creation. I had already created my blog, however, there were some great applications and suggestions that I was not aware of and picked up as a result of this book. This reference guide will walk you through every step of creating your blog to things you can do to monitor traffic, drive traffic to your blog, give suggestions for layout and applications that are available as well as walking you through the process of using Google Blogger with your own domain name. I found the book very helpful and there were several things I learned and implemented. The great thing about these series of books is that each chapter is stand alone. Choose the chapters or topics that you are interested in and in whatever order you wish. Some of the features that were discussed were already outdated, as Google is constantly making upgrades, but there is usually another similar application that will do virtually the same thing.

    Great Reference Guide

    It was a great guide to skim through and get a lot of good tips. Now I simply refer to it when I have a question.

    Time for a new edition

    I decided I would start a blog on Google, and so I was really looking forward to a book specifically on this subject. However, Google has changed its dashboard subsequent to the publishing of this book, so the book was not quite as helpful as I had hoped. It is time for a new edition of the book.

    Twice buying

    This is getting one star because I read the sample part first before buying. After I bought it wouldn't let me past the sample part. I had to delete it and rebuy it. No matter good the book is, it sucks to have to pay for it twice.
