I didn't mention this in my last post, but between dinner and the movie on "date night" Brad and I hit our local Barnes & Noble for a chai latte and so I could get a book on my favorite new hobby, blogging!
There wasn't much of a selection so I had to choose between "Blogging for Dummies" and "THE ROUGH GUIDE to Blogging." THE ROUGH GUIDE won by a landslide!
I started my blog is August and was pretty much clueless about the ins and outs of blogging. I've been learning as I go and with "a little help from my friends." This guide has helped me to understand aspects of blogging I never knew existed. There are sections on RSS tools as well as getting on blog review sights such as The Weblog Review and Blog of the Day.
Another section that I love is the author's blogroll of his favorite blogs. These are the gold standard of blogs. Check out these two blogs by moms: Greek Tragedy and Dooce. There is an entire list of food blogs, art blogs, knitting blogs, you name it!
THE ROUGH GUIDE to Blogging is only $12.99. This blogger gives it two thumbs way up.
