25 books to help you start or improve your blog

Not too long ago I told you about the book I read – Dana Sibilsky’s Tips to Successful and Profitable Blogging. Have you ever given any thought to blogging? When I first started I had so many questions, but as I mentioned in my review of Dana’s book, I kind of jumped right into it and probably missed some good opportunities. How do you even begin? Does someone actually pay you to have a blog? How do people get those items for review? The list goes on and on.

Even though I jumped right into it, I did read a lot of books along the way, and still do. I read everything I can and immerse myself in the culture, so to speak. Recently, I’ve been asked if I can recommend any books about blogging. I’ve read a couple of these, not all, but they seem pretty comprehensive. I added ones for very beginners and bloggers who maybe need help getting traffic, mastering WordPress, and a couple of books specifically for Mom bloggers and food bloggers if that’s your niche. Even though I have not {yet} read them all…they are on my list.  Even if the book is geared toward an area that may not be your niche, you can certainly learn from it so think outside the box and if you have time to fit it in your reading schedule – I suggest reading anything you can.
