Blogging is not easy, everyone knows that. One year ago, when I created this blog, I had a lot of questions and doubts about it and in many occasions I even considered giving up this hobby.
I'm sure everything would have been easier if I had run into The Book Blogger Platform. It's the first book I read about blogging and I found it extremely useful.
The book refers specifically to book-blogging, which is the kind I actually do in El Club de los Divergentes. I review books, talk about the last trends in Young Adult literature and create enjoyable bookish contents.
If you want to become a book blogger but you're afraid to immerse yourself in this tricky world, The Book Blogger Platform will be your best friend. It will give you tips about which platform to choose (Blogger, Wordpress...), what should your blog contain (posts, pages...), which are the types of posts common to book bloggers, how to monetize your blog... and even how to get an ARC (Advance Reading Copies)!
Barb Drozdowich, the author of this book, stresses the importance of the social media platforms to make our blog public. The ones discussed are Twitter, Facebook, Google +, Pinterest, Instagram, Goodreads, among others.
The Book Blogger Platform is useful for people of all levels of blogging, but I think it's mostly aimed at introducing the blogging world to beginners.
What I like the best about this book are the links included at the end which contain video tutorials, like "How to add Google Analytics to a Blogger blog" or "How to put a signature at the bottom of a blog post".
