Review: Get Rich Blogging by Zoe Griffin

I believe in blogging, food and giving support where support is due, so when Laalaa from Dolce Vanity let it slip that her pearls of blogging wisdom had been published in a book, you have to believe I rushed to Amazon to get myself a copy of ‘Get Rich Blogging’ the minute my pay slip hit my account.
My copy came this week and I’ve spent a lot of time over the weekend on my bed with some sticky tabs and a highlighter pouring over it . . . don’t worry I was aware that this book is not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme for bloggers (despite what the catchy title would lead you to believe). Instead Zoe Griffin; author and blogger behind Live Like a VIP, takes readers through what it really means to have a blog and how to get some revenue from it.

'Get Rich Blogging" covers everything from naming to designing your blog to gaining readership, basically the majority of the things you might want to know about the workings of a blog has been broken down with great, practical examples with lots of helpful website links.

While I didn't really find this book very useful to me as it did contain a lot of things that I already know and I felt that it didn't stress just how difficult it is to blog and gain recognition in the blogging market, I would give this book to a new blogger or some who has just gotten into blogging as it would quickly round-up what they need to know and they can skip through the whole "trial and error" process that I went through. While I didn't agree with everything this book said I think that it has helped refocus on my blog and what I need to do to give it a little push.
Another reason you should get this book is because my darlings, Adrienne The Sunday Girl and Laalaa Dolce Vanity and of course the Queen of British Blogging Jane British Beauty Blogger have ALL been featured!!!! Here’s the link to Amazon so get clicking!!!
