Getting Started: “Blogging For Dummies”

Posted by | .

by Brad Hill (Indianapolis, Indiana: Wiley Publishing. Inc., 2006, 368 pgs.)

This book was a tremendous help to me when I was getting started a year ago. Brad Hill introduces you to blogging in general. He looks at all the major blog programs and hosts. He gives you an evaluation of each plus tips on how to get started and fully utilize each blogging tool in the arsenal.

There is a glossary in the back that helps you to speak and understand blogease-quite helpful to someone like me that started at -0 in internet/blog knowledge.

If you decide to go with a hosted blog like Blogger or TypePad, he has an entire chapter on each one. If you are hosting a blog on your own domain, he gives you the ins and outs of installing the different blog programs. See my review of Chapter 6 on Blogger.

He has a separate chapter on the Movable Type program and also one on WordPress. The WordPress chapter was particularly helpful to me in getting started, with some very essential tips.

Then he introduces you the next step in blogging: Photos, Audios, and Podcasting. Brad then rounds it out with information about feeds and promoting your blog. This really is an easy book to read and understand. An essential tool for those starting out, very helpful. *Top
