I just finished reading “Blogging Heroes: Interviews with 30 of the world’s top bloggers” by Michael Banks. As an aspiring professional blogger and owner of seven blog directories, I try to read as much as I can about bloggers. In my opinion, this is one of the best books available in the blogging category right now.
As the title suggests, the book is broken down into 30 chapters and each one profile and interviews a successful blogger. The book is very informative and provides a lot of useful information like who they got started in blogging and their advice for those just starting out in the field. The best thing about this book was that after reading it you will feel so inspired. I realized that these pro bloggers were just regular people who decided to take a chance. The one thing the book stresses time and time again is the importance of hard work and patience. Most of the time it took at least 2 years for these blogs to take off. I learned so much just by reading about these great bloggers. It was interesting to find out what worked for them and what didn’t. They share this information so the readers can learn from their mistakes.
In closing, I would strong recommend this book to any blogger, from beginner to expert. The way I see it, is if you weren’t profiled in the book as one of the top 30 bloggers in the world than you have room for improvement and can learn something from this great book.
