Darren Rowse (Problogger) recommends “Clear Blogging,” a comprehensive book on blogging by Bob Walsh. Darren writes:
While I did only skim most of it – I was quite impressed with the depth and breadth of what Bob managed to cover in the book. It’s the most comprehensive book I’ve seen on the topic of blogging and well worth the read. I’d recommend it to any new blogger wanting both theory and practical advice about everything from the setting up of a blog through to the running of one.
It’s also possible to get a free sample chapter to see whether you would want to buy the book. Just go to Amazon.com’s page for Clear Blogging, and scroll down a little less than half the page until you see the author’s note “Free sample chapter of Clear Blogging.”
