The first section, blogging essentials, covers, you know, those essential things you need to get started — setting up your email newsletter and creating a decent comment moderation system. That kind of thing.

The second section, monetization, covers some of the different methods available to you of monetizing your blog and creating a decent revenue stream. We cover effective affiliate marketing and how to get set up selling your own products.

Finally, we’re on to social & analytics. This is by far the longest section and was actually my favourite to write. Here, we’ve got all sorts covered — there’s a focus on SEO, what it is and how you can use it to more effectively manage your content, as well as a little on Facebook integration and keeping your blog loading speedily.

      I’m just about to send out the newsletter to current subscribers with the download :)

  • Hi Alex,

    Have a great weekend.

    Thanks for the ebook. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I tend to be much more likely to read stuff in ePub format. PDF’s on an iPad aren’t very pleasant and that’s where I do my reading. Just sayin’.

  • Thanks for the book — an easy read and lots of good tips. I’m wondering if you have any best-practices advice on RSS feeds, in a similar style.

    I read the PDF on my Kindle and found it unusually readable there because of the nice, wide spacing. But the hyperlinks don’t work on my Kindle, so I’m glad I have the computer copy to follow up with.

    Thanks again!

      Thanks Sara :)

      For RSS, I’d recommend Feedburner, although Google hasn’t committed to its future yet, so until that’s cleared up, your built in RSS feed would work fine.

      Next time I’ll make sure I make an ePub version for Kindles and other e-readers. Thanks for the feedback :)

  • thank you for making it free :)

  • Thanks for the awesome e-book.. Hope this will helps me to become a pro-blogger :)

  • Thank you for your Free ebook. Thanks for sharing

    I bought the Empty Spaces theme and subscribed to your newsletter in the process, now I can’t subscribe and get the ebook. Any way around this?
