How to Make Money Blogging Review

How To Make Money Blogging: How I Replaced My Day-Job With My Blog and How You Can Start A Blog Today (Blogging Guide Book 1)

By Bob Lotich 

Thanks to all the readers who helped make this book the #1 Bestseller on Amazon in the Blogging category!

Bob Lotich founded back in 2007 and after getting laid off in 2008 he took the leap into full-time blogging. Less than a year later he was earning more from his blog than his previous day-job. While his results are not typical, this book covers all the steps he took to make money from his blog over that two-year period. 

Who this book is written for:
  • Those who want to get started blogging 
  • Those who are already blogging but aren't making as much money as they'd like to. 
Who this book is NOT written for:
  • People looking for a get-rich-quick system that requires little effort.  
  • Experienced bloggers making over $1000/m (though the book will still probably be helpful, it isn't written to this audience)
Some of the topics covered in the book:
  • 4 Steps to Start Blogging in 10 minutes
  • Blogging Basics
  • How to setup a Self-Hosted Blog
  • The importance of a Customizable Wordpress theme
  • 3 primary ways to earn from your blog
  • How long does it take to make money from your blog?
  • How to get traffic to your blog
  • SEO Tips for bloggers
  • How I increased Adsense earnings $1500/m in less than 3 months
  • 10 helpful tools that made it all possible

This book is well researched and written. The author did a very good job of explaining how to begin blogging on your own. He tells what he did, what he should have done, and what he would do differently, or not, now that he has experience. He gives a list of hosting companies he has used, along with their prices, and his experience with them. And for those looking to make money from their blog, he even tells you how, along with names and links to put you on track.

I wish I’d had this to read when I first started blogging.  It would have been so much easier on me. There’s tons of information and reference in this book, making it priceless. Even with what I know, I’m glad I have this on my bookshelf to refer to when needed now
