I love this book because Ruth says it straight up. She tells you what would work and what wouldn't. I like that she gives you the reality of blogging. This book also has step by step goals you could set up for yourself to be where you want to be little at a time. This book explains a lot of blogging helps that are easy to understand and follow. Again a MUST READ if you want to be successful. Something she said that I remind myself with everyday is to not compare your beginning with someone's middle.
Blogging gives your site a voice, so let your business’ personality shine through.
The third book is called Affiliate Marketing by Dan Moore.
This book is small and very easy to read, I finished it in a week. That's fast for being a full time mom! Some of his stuff may seem repetitive but it's exactly what I needed to understand affiliate marketing clearly.
