MY REVIEW – How to Blog for Profit
Ruth Soukup is known as a heavy hitter in the blogging world. With her successful blog Living Well Spending Less and Elite Blog Academy.
I have two words to describe Ruth’s book and that’s practical and genius. As someone who has blogged in the past but never felt like I was doing it right or never reaching my true potential. This book clears the air and gives you a detailed road map of how to blog professionally. This is not a book on blogging on how your week was and pictures of your kids.
It really is about making your blog a business and a tool to reach an audience. Some of the topics that are covered in the book are; Content, Growing your platform, Social Media, Monetizing more. But what gets me the most is that Ruth just doesn’t say it, she also shows it.
She gives real life photo examples about what she describes in her book. For example, she will show you what a good graphic is and what a bad graphic is. This is so helpful for those who are visual learners.
This book is really a game changer for any blogger who is wanting to take their blog to the next level or is thinking of starting one.
