Blog gotten stale? [Book Review]

I have never been very regular with blogging.

I know I need to blog regularly. Honestly, I really enjoy blogging. But something about the schedules I’ve set in the past has made it incredible difficult to stick to it and keep it going for very long at a time.

That’s why when Reading Deals offered to let me read and review Blog Ideas by Steve Alvesteffer, I was more than happy to oblige.

My Rating

I was expecting a book of tips, and that’s what I got. This book does have 131 tips to help you make your blog better every day. Nothing more, nothing less.

That being said, Alvesteffer does start off on a note that is perhaps not so appropriate when he quotes Bill Cosby on how to get what you want. I don’t know he’s necessarily the best person to take advice from these days.

Overall, this book was filled with ideas. Not all of them were original, but I’ll definitely be employing some of them in the coming year to see if they help. I give this book three of five stars¬†for being pretty much what it says it is.
