    Great book, but what about mashups?

    This book will have you blogging in no time at all. It's so nicely written that it -- with a little additional help from me, to be honest -- helped my wife set up her "Comper's Chronicle" blog. <BR/><BR/>(the blog is about winning online competitions, if you're wondering what a "comper" is) <BR/><BR/>She has successfuly incorporated Google Adsense and Amazon Associates content, as suggested in Todd's book. <BR/><BR/>Since the book deals with Web 2.0, I personally would have liked more coverage of how to incorporate web mashups into blogs. Not just photos and videos, but proper "mashups" that you can create for free -- using Yahoo! Pipes, Dapper, Microsoft Popfly, and Google Mashup Editor -- to combine information, pictures, whatever from various web pages and feeds. And then incorporate the results in your blog. <BR/><BR/>But I still rate it 5 stars.
