A lot of the more popular blogs write these books on how to blog, so who better to teach you than an effective problemogger who puts their first-hand advice and knowledge into the book.

I know what you are going to say – How do I find the time to read a blog book when I have a million and one other thing to do with my blog?

As busy as we all think there is always 20 minutes here and there throughout the day to read a few pages of a book, for me it’s right before I go to bed and in fact I have a book on my nightstand now “Confessions of a Six-Figure Blogger”.

Learning from some of the more popular blogs is a great way to tweet and improve your own blog and if they have written a book or blog guide why not read it? you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

I’m pretty sure almost every blogger has read this book, otherwise go get yourself a copy. This book covers all the basics needed to turn your blog into a profitable, well-oiled, functional blog.

2. All-in-one blogging for dummies

I always kept my distance vis-à-vis the series of “mannequins” books because I thought they were intended and targeted at real models!

Oh how wrong I was! The Dummies Book Series has come a long way since its inception and some of the most popular blogs have contributed to the Dummies Book Series by producing some of the top sellers in the Dummies line of books.

Many experts in their chosen field have contributed to Dummies books and an example of such a book is “Blogging All-In-One For Dummies” written by Susan Gunelius.

This book is really aimed at the novice blogger or a blogger just venturing into the blogosphere, but I have to say that even a seasoned blogger will find some new tips to use in this book. There are actually 8 books in 1 and some of the topics covered include: blogging software, blogspot, blog marketing, business and niche blogging.

The book covers all areas of the blog, from setup and workflow to social media, ads, ethics, and even hiring other writers once your blog is successful. The book also focuses less on the tech side, but offers a more hands-on approach to successfully starting your blog.

John and Charlie both seem extremely passionate about blogging, which makes for a more energetic and engaging read. I guarantee that once you take this book, you will not be able to drop it off.
