Blogging for Creatives

Some books are useful, some are fun, and every now and then I read one that's both! Sorry it's not a sewing book, but if you're a blogger (or a wannabe!) you'll like this book.

Blogging for Creatives is exactly how it sounds: a book for bloggers who write about creative endeavors. I imagine that most creative bloggers are visual people, and this book is lovely to see. Every page has a photo and description of a blog, most of which have creative topics and therefore creative blog designs. You'll be inspired if all you do is look at the pictures!

Aside from all the eye candy, there is a ton of useful information about blogging. And because so much of the page is taken up with photos, the text is concise. It tells you what you need to know and gets on with it!

There are standard topics like incorporating social media, and useful ones like "12 blog posts that work". Videos and podcasting are both covered, as well as how to blog on the move. The book is well-round and doesn't forget analytics, troubleshooting, and navigating copyright.

If you're looking for inspiration AND information, look no further (hey, it's like those commercials where the people like "and" better...y'know, sweet AND sour chicken instead of sweet OR sour...nevermind). If you give this book a go, let me know what you think in the comments!

Remember I talked about washi tape yesterday? Lo and behold, Pick Your Plum has some today! Better hurry, this stuff sells out FAST!
