review 1: This book defined blogging as basically being citizen journalism, and sort of discounted any blogs/blog ideas that wouldn't be writing about breaking news every day. The book definitely reads like a boot camp. The authors are unforgiving of anything less than writing 1,000 words per day and posting AT LEAST once per day. There is, however, a lot of good information in here. And in truth, they are right about a lot of the things they're drill seargenty about. Blogs that are updated once a day or more are usually more popular than blogs that only update once a week. So I'd recommend this for anyone thinking about starting a blog, or thinking of taking their blog to the next level.
review 2: Looking for some hints and tips. The writing style was bloggeresque with
... moremain emphasis on journalism and blogging. Much of the info is stale dated as it talks nuts and bolts that include what platform to use, tools and specific web sites. The good bits were more about how to think and come up with posts. If you wish to make a profitable blog, this may be a good way to do it. The authors recognize that some of their success is luck and suggest that this method is reproducible. less

More for someone who is IT savvy, not so much for the beginner blogger but still had helpful hints.
Was not relevant to me at all- very consumer led and cold.
Lots of great info.....makes me think....
