Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income

Over the last few months I have been reading ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income by Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett. Throughout the book, the authors stress becoming successful at blogging doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time and an abundance of hard work is put into it. Rowse stated that “There are no magic wands, hidden tricks, or secret handshakes that can bring you immediate success in the blogging world, but with time, energy and determination you can get there” (ProBlogger p.6). Rowse and Garrett divided the book in chapters and limited the technical jargon, allowing it to be an easy and enjoyable read, while focusing on useful tips and techniques that help you become successful at blogging. Subjects throughout the book are:
1. Blogging For Money
2. Niche Blogging
3. Setting Up Your Blog
4. Blog Writing
5. Blog Income and Strategies
6. Buying and Selling Blogs
7. Blog Networks
8. Blog Promotion and Marketing
9. Secrets of Successful Blogs
10. Creating Something Worth While
Overall, I enjoyed reading ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income and felt it was very informative to those who are new to blogging. It’s defiantly a book that could be referenced to, as one begins to blog. No matter you expertise in blogging, this book has something for everyone and most importantly it tells you the secrets to making money by blogging.

  1. I knew what blogging was before this semester, but it is an area I didn't realize could impact businesses so much. It's kind of crazy how much of a difference a blog (a good blog) can make for a company. It is something I have recommended to the company I work with currently in hopes that they can improve their customer realtionships even more. Thanks for the great review!!

  2. I had no idea until taking this class how effective blogging can be. Apparently, he key to having a successful blog is finding a topic that people have an interest in and continuosly updating the blog on that topic. Blogging can be very effectitve when it comes to business if done correctly.
