a book on blogging

a cat named patches

I stumbled upon Oh Joy blog via a friend several weeks ago. I saw she wrote a book on blogging, and after reading a few of her posts I thought, “she knows what she’s doing.”

I picked up her book at Barnes and Noble to see what it was all about.

It is a fantastic starting point if you are a beginner blogger or if you are trying to grow your blog. She covers a lot of material and answers a lot of the questions I get asked often. 

So, if you have questions about blogging, starting a blog, growing your blog, advertising, working with brands, etc, check out this book!

*Joy has no clue who I am. There’s a small chance she’s seen my hair on Pinterest, but other than that we have never interacted. I wasn’t compensated for this post in anyway. I purchased the book and all opinions are my own.

That book has been on my wish list since it came out! Did you watch her video with Naomi Davis?

Kate says · 12.01.12

I watched a bit of it. I find those hard to watch because its kind of just chatting. But they are good if you are interested in the people talking and their behind the scenes stories!

Ahh, what a dreamy book! I just started blogging, and I’ve come to the realization that I rarely finish what I start, so I’m really interested in starting a lifestyle blog and legitimately sustaining it. Even if only to spite myself. 🙂

I may have to pick this book up! Go big or go home, right? 🙂

Thanks for sharing this! I have been reading you and your sisters blogs for a few months, and both of you have inspired me in many ways. I have always wanted to blog, and so I bought this book yesterday and can’t wait to start my own blog!

Hope all is well with you and your family.

I picked the book up thanks to your recommendation. I’m in the process of retooling/rebooting my blog and it’s great to have all these tips in one place.

Thanks for recommending this book! I immediately downloaded to my iPad and am already almost halfway through. It really is full of such great tips that I have already begun to act on. I am a beginner blogger so this was surely something I needed at the right time!
