Blogs and Blogging in business are relatively new, so new that there simply are no rules. If there were rules, they would be changing and evolving too rapidly to codify. The best anyone can say is “here is some advice based on what is working today, combined with a good dollop of common sense.” As a result, this topic fits the What No One Ever Tells You series format perfectly!
Despite their “newness,” blogs have rapidly proven themselves in business. They serve several functions valiantly, including: communicating with customers, potential customers, and other stakeholders, as a research tool to help uncover what is being said about you, your company, your competitors, and your industry, and even as a type of broadcast medium as some are making significant money by monetizing blog traffic through advertising and other means. Instead of offering our advice on blogs and blogging in business, in this book we offer advice from 101 people who are successfully harnessing the power of blogging.

A book like this isn't about chewing through pages merely for the purpose of consuming knowledge on social networking. It's for the impassioned evangelist seeking to inspire others to action with nothing more than the seed of thought. The author has taken all these great relationships he's cultivated with winning bloggers around the world and compacted them into tiny, bite-sized chunks of expert advice. Based only on what I read in the book I've developed a blog 'distributionbizwiz.wordpress.com' that within three weeks has attracted about 600 visitors including the attention of more than a few key industry people. And, the book is a great resource to review every once in a while to keep you focused on what works.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If I was going to write an introductory guide to the benefits of blogging and podcasting, I would have written Ted¿s book. I was already a believer in blogging and podcasting, but Ted's found some great, inspirational examples of people finding a lot of success with both. And he spans industries which is important - blogging and podcasting aren't just for tech geeks. It's an easy, quick read and a great book for people just starting out in the blogging world or thinking about it. And for expert bloggers who feel burnt out, Ted's book might help rejuvenate you.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
