Blogging 101

I've decided to dedicate a page to my blogging tips & tricks. Now, I'm still a new blogger and definitely not an expert on blogging AT ALL but I'd like to share my blogging journey with you in case you may want to follow along.

I'll be using the following books to help me along with my journey and will be alternating the challenges as I see fit.

Helpful Guide Books:

31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo by Bryan Allain
I love this book! I just purchased the e-book version yesterday morning (March 1, 2012) and had to pry myself away from it because it is such an awesome read. Not only does it provide you with challenges for you to better yourself as a blogger, but it's also really fun to read. You can preview the book via Amazon here and decide for yourself if this book suits you and your blog.

31 Days to Build a Better Blog by Darren Rowse
This is the first book that I came across while looking for blogging tips online. The SITS Girls use this book as a group challenge. Whoever wants to better their blog can join along and get support and help from others doing the same. I haven't really bought the whole book, just skimmed a few of the chapters and topics, but it does look like it would be helpful. The Amazon preview is here.
