I was fortunate enough to be able to review the Choosing the Scope and Structure of Your Blog ebook from Nightfire Publications. This is a transcript of a roundtable discussion between Tricia Meyer, Deborah Carney, and Liz Fogg – all very well established bloggers in their own right.
This ebook offers newbies and experienced bloggers alike great pointers and tips for deciding between a niche blog or a general blog. I know I hadn’t thought about this prior to reading this ebook and I’m sure many other bloggers out there haven’t either. Choosing the Scope and Structure of Your Blog discusses monetization and affiliate marketing on blogs and how important it is to decide on niche vs. general when considering monetization and affiliate marketing.
Choosing the Scope and Structure of Your Blog is highly beneficial for those bloggers still uncertain as to which blogging software or platform to choose. Again, the roundtable discusses how the choice of your platform or software can have huge impact on your ability to successfully monetize your blog or have profitable affiliate marketing.
I know I took many great tips and ideas for my blog from this ebook. One of my concerns with this ebook was how anti-Blogger/blogspot this group of ladies was. Unfortunately, I use Blogger as my blogging platform simply because of how user friendly it is in general. The ladies behind Choosing Your Scope and Structure of Your Blog do NOT like Blogger/blogspot at all. Which is fine for those of you who are savvy enough about web design and structure to be able to use a different blogging platform – I am not there yet though. These ladies do have many valid points concerning blog scope (niche vs. general) and blog structure (platform and software).
My other concern with Choosing the Scope and Structure of Your Blog is that it is not the easiest to read in the roundtable discussion format. Reading a discussion between three different people makes it a little challenging for smooth reading. Aside from those two points though I was happy to learn some valuable blogging information and tips from three very successful bloggers.
At the end of Choosing the Scope and Structure of Your Blog there is a page of resources that are mentioned by the ladies in their discussion. This is a nice bonus to help bloggers with a summarization of the ladies’ points from this ebook.
