Blogging for Bliss by Tara Frey : A Book Review

Blogging for Bliss: Crafting Your Own Online Journal: A Guide for Crafters, Artists & Creatives of all Kinds

The other day I finished reading my copy of "Blogging for Bliss" by Tara Frey.  It's a really great book for someone who is new to the world of crafty blogging.  There's information about the major blogging platforms - Blogger, TypePad, and Wordpress along with ideas on how to pick a name for your blog, how to add creative sparks to the design, tips for posts that get read and commented on most, tips about taking photographs for your blog, among other things.  My favorite part were the stories and interviews with different bloggers with popular creative blogs.  Many of these bloggers were the writers of blogs I've already visited and thought were interesting and inspiring for many different reasons.  Some of those blogs include Elsita, Daisy Cottage, Inspire Company, and Inside A Black Apple.

If you're interested in getting the book, Amazon has the best price.  I tried to check it out at the local bookshops, but no one had it in stock.
