This is a truly amazing timeline into the life of a blogger done good. Not an easy, fall into place choice, but through patience and time a full time career via blogging became the dream. Well structured and narated a joy to listen to, and highly recommended for any wishing to persue starting a blog for both pleasure and extra income for those that wish to adopt a more serious approach with the benefits of blogging
Some very good ideas and info in the book, but also a bunch of wordpress setup tutorials and beginner tutorials for lots of stuff that were not that interesting.
On a lot of occasions the genetic approach was irritating - the author makes sure to claim no best way and no personal preference, just a bunch of options like a bulletin.
The narrator was reading links in the most annoying matter - http column slash slash etc.
You might get an idea or two but hardly worth its money.
Takes too long to get going and not specific enough.
Waste of my money
This book is loaded with information. I also like the authors blogs which are very informative. Some reviewers did not like the narrator. I found his narration fine but could understand why some did not like it. (He sounds somewhat authoritarian)
My only criticism is that perhaps the authors should have listed a web-page or a PDF download for the links. Listening to long URLS is a waste of time since most of us are in the gym, walking or driving a car when we listen.
Note if you are an experienced blogger already making money then this book might be a review for you. But for someone like myself this book is fantastic.
I liked the book so much I purchased his physical book, went back to reading his blog and paid to join his forum.
"Nice enough, annoying narrator"
The content of this book is nice enough, but the voice of the narrator is a bit annoying. He ends every sentence in a weird tone of voice, and it gets on your nerve sometimes.
Also, since this is a collaboratory work by two writers, I dont think it is defined clearly enough which of the two writers is presenting their perspective at specific times in the book. It might have been better to have two narrators so you could distinct between the writers.
The two authors might just as well have read the book themselves, I dont think their reading style could be much worse than the narrator chosen for this book.
It's a great resource for anyone interested in blogging. It has a lot of good information and good resources for all bloggers. Check it out, you will enjoy it.
"Great Information Change the Reader."
This was a great book, but the reader was not. Horrible Reader with an very annoying voice.
"Awesome Book Full Of Knowlege"
This is a great book from a couple of masters in their chosen businesses. It's always nice to learn from people who have been there and done that. I got tons of great ideas that I had never thought of before. This is a must read if you are interested in blogging and/or online marketing.
"Narrator ruined the book!"
I hate to say it, but the narrator really ruined the book... Don't know what kind of "accent" he's trying to pull off, but it's horrible. Makes me cringe, and I barely made it through the book! Sorry...
"Decent content - awful reader!"
Seriously? Is this the best guy they could get to read this book? This guy is without a doubt the most annoying reader I have encountered thus far.
Imagine the worst impression possible you could make of an ultra rich Connecticut blue blood. This guy sounds like a caricature . The inflection the guy puts on the end of every sentence is just grating to listen to. You will know what i mean if you choose to listen to this.
I'd recommend the book but under no circumstances would I recommend the audiobook as the narration is atrocious.
I was inspired to ensure that I never buy any book narrated by Erik Synnvestvedt. Ever!
Very difficult to listen to. The book is great but the narrator is a very bad choice. It really hurts the useful information that this book contains.
"Reading internet links = BAD IDEA!"
As an audio book this was not what I would consider the best formate. As an eBook for half the price I would have said OK.
The problem is the narrative is not very interesting, the narration drones on.... i.e. reading loooooooong internet links is not what I would call a good idea!
I will say there are some interesting tidbits in this book, however like I said before a nice eBook with a checklist would have been better...
While I got many good ideas from this, when the author starts reading long lists of "open bracket, underscore, close bracket, etc etc etc" I wanted to turn him off. Audible books are not the place to do this "programmerish junk". Better to name a blog to go to to see the typed words. The reader has a voice that has a strange accent (for lack of a better term) that really turned me off. Some subjects are better in hard copy than audible books.
