Last night I finished reading BlogWild! How everyone can go blogging by Andy Wibbels. This book wasn’t bad if you know absolutely nothing about blogs or blogging. I had read some good reviews of the book, but found it very simplistic.
I found a little bit of information that would help someone with their existing blog (about enough info to fit in an article) but a lot of stuff that told you how to set up a Typepad blog from scratch.
As someone in the IT industry, it wasn’t really meant for me. If I wanted my grandmother to be able to blog, I would recommend this book to her. Actually, in the last place I worked, I know some very technical people who didn’t know what a blog was or have ever read one.
Too much reliance on Typepad for my liking.
Andy Wibbels has two blogs which are very successful. I found them very entertaining and have added the RSS feeds to my aggregator. The blogs are at:
Still, it got me motivated to write a bit more and to think about more information to include on this site. If nothing else, that was a benefit to reading it.
