Dirk from upgradereality.com has released a very interesting and informative ebook. Titled The Definitive Guide to Blogging, it is a FREE ebook that helps walk you through the process of setting up a blog.
But it offers much much more.
Although it is perfect for new bloggers, who need to be walked through the steps, it is also very valuable for bloggers who have been running their blogs for a couple of months without any rewards.
Here is just a taste of what you will get from the book:
– Setting up a domain name and hosting.
– Installing WordPress.
– Choosing a theme and layout.
– SEO basics, on-page SEO and SEO tips for articles.
– Essential plugins.
– Tools & tutorials.
– Tactics and strategies how to grow your audience.
– Build your brand & how to get traffic.
– Monetization strategies.
The book is basically a summary of the two years that Dirk has spent as a blogger, but with all the mistakes he has made taken out.
I’ve personally had a look through the FREE 77-page book and can highly recommend it. The great thing about this book is that I don’t believe it matters what your blog is about. Whether it is about music, MMO, or even compression stockings, I think the results will just about be the same.
Personally I would not be offering it for free, so if I were you I’d grab a copy of it today before he comes to his senses and starts charging for it. 🙂
