How to blog — get your free ebook!

I happened across this free ebook for bloggers that I want to recommend.

It's on Scribbit: A Blog About Motherhood in Alaska, and it's easily downloadable in PDF form.

At first I was skeptical, because the title is Blogging in Pink, and pink's not really my color. Besides, the cover is an overblown rose. Having not yet read any of Scribbit the blog, I was sort of expecting the insides to be...gooier.

But it's very down to earth and well written, and a nice, fast, informative read of 24 short chapters. I'm really impressed that it's free! So grab it before she starts charging! (Well, actually, you can download it into a Kindle or similar for $0.80, so if you prefer to pay, you can.)

She starts from the very beginning and works you through all the steps of starting a blog, cultivating a readership, choosing privacy options, and, that favorite subject, monetizing.

I even liked that she laid out clearly the difference between Wordpress and Blogger/Blogspot: Wordpress is thought to be cooler. That's its one benefit. I use both platforms, and both the self-hosted and Wordpress-hosted forms, and I know whereof I speak when I say: Blogger is easier and more versatile, and any gap between the two has been closing.

As for the subtitle of "A Woman's Guide":

"I call it a woman's guide because it addresses a couple things that are unique to blogs by women but in general the information applies to most blogs no matter who is writing or what the subject matter is."

So, go read and enjoy! Thanks much to Michelle from Scribbit.
