A guide to help creatives start blogging

While I'm on the subject of books, here's a really useful one. Blogging For Creatives: How designers, artists, crafters and writers can blog to make contacts, win business, and build success. Robin Houghton has put together this super guide to help anyone (not just creative types) set up a blog from scratch and make it go.

The book avoids technical jargon, is easy to understand, and won't make your eyes glaze over. Robin addresses hosting options and blogging platforms (what's the difference between Blogger, WordPress, Tumblr, and others?), the anatomy of a good blog post, how to promote your blog, options for advertising and sponsorship, and legal considerations. Step-by-step screenshots show how to get things done. The book also features dozens of example sites with tips from a variety of bloggers sprinkled throughout. Including yours truly.

I speed-read through the entire book and would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in starting to blog, or looking to grow their little blog into something with more impact.

My review copy has the UK version of the cover; the just-released US version has a different cover design but same interior. Grab it here at Amazon, and get more blogging tips at BloggingForCreatives.com.
