This book is a great book for people starting their blogs. I'm someone who has had an amateur blog up and running for about two years now, and recently switched platforms to a) rid me of my not-very-technology savvy frustration and b) help me transition from amateur to a serious blogger (perhaps even professional). While the book has given me a few a-ha! ideas, many of which come from the Q&A sections of the book, I can't say it was particularly helpful or "Whack On The Side Of The Head" worthy. I was especially hoping for more in the "how to develop your readership" area, but alas, no other ideas than to post comments on other blogs in a way that doesn't look like spam. Again, great basic information but as so many others said, if you've had your blog up and running for awhile, you're very likely to have surpassed the knowledge given in this book.
