Picked up a bunch of writing related books from the library, so I’m going to try and get some reviews done before they are due back. the library is my favorite place to get books, because they are free and if I don’t like the book no money is lost. Not only writing books will be included in my upcoming reviews, but other books that writers can make use of and additional material from which one may learn.
Today’s book is Blogging For Writers, by Robin Houghton, published by Writer’s Digest Books, publication date: 2014.
While the book primarily focuses on blogging with WordPress and Blogger.com, it also mentions some of up and coming sites such as svbtle, medium, and ghost. The author goes into considerable detail about working with WordPress or Blogger, with details on setting up an account and managing your blog.
The author discusses how blogging is helpful to writers – “On your blog you are the publisher-you are in total control of what you put on it and how you present it.” Houghton discusses how the blog is a key element of your author platform.
Houghton provides information on how to get your blog noticed, connecting with Facebook and Twitter, and other helplful pieces of information. It is a very useful resource for writers and beginning bloggers. I give it four out of five chickens.
