I loved this book! I mentioned in another blogging book review that I’ve had my blog for about a year and I felt it just didn’t have the momentum, drive and I needed to do some research to give it the push it needed! I tried other books that I found flat and uninformative and thankfully I stumbled upon Blogging for Creatives and i’m happy to say I loved the book! Not only did I learn a few things but I even got some ideas on re- wording my current content, I got some real world ideas on where to turn for more ideas (i.e., other blog pages were provided for examples). I loved that the book provided examples, it provided comparative blogs, it provided a wealth of resources to check out and it even provided pictures, visuals that I could easily relate to because other books I read had no visuals and while I forced myself to get thru those books, It was a breeze to get thru the Blogging for Creatives book! I would absolutely recommend this book to others looking for ways to get their blogs in motion! Very pleased with my purchase!

I’ve given this book a four-star rating because it has great information about ideas on how to consistently maintain a blog. However, as with many books including information about technology, parts of the book are no longer relevant due to the ever-changing landscape of online blogging platforms. I would wait to purchase an updated version of this book.

This book was so much better than others!

Just started a blog this past February and this book was recommended by Kari Chapin who wrote “The Handmade Marketplace” and is one of my favorite indie business authors. This book is helpful, easy to understand and shares lots of information. It also shows great examples of creative blogs that are very inspiring. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in starting a blog, especially those of us creatives who don’t like all the technical jargon you find in other books.

Lots of helpful information

This is one of the best books on blogging and growing business through blogging I’ve read. Lots of helpful connections which work great on the kindle and take you right to the blog the author references. I made lots of bookmarks on this one and have started rereading it – something I very rarely do.

Visually Enticing & Inspirational

I’m a visual kind of person, and need a lot of examples to pump my inner creativity. This book is simply the best at giving hundreds of color visual examples of great blog sites, as well as listing wonderful, creative blogs. Written for the creative person (you know who you are), so the images are “artsy”, but the message is pure pleasure.
