Home » Book Review: The Little Big E-Book on Blogging, by Cendrine Marrouat
I was recently asked to edit an E-book for a friend and fellow blogger, Cendrine Marrouat. As I indicated in Cendrine’s recent guest post for the Cafe, she is an international author, poet, journalist, and blogger with almost ten years experience online.
After editing her E-book, I asked her if I could review it for her, because I was impressed with her ability to serve up great blogging tips in a concise manner. I wasn’t at all surprised by Marrouat’s writing ability, she is a seasoned reporter after all, but I was very happy to pull out great information and tips I could use even as I looked over her E-book for the occasional typo.
I found that this little E-book is packed full of great tips to help increase traffic to your blog, but it’s also a lesson in great research technique and a study in simplifying what is often a confusing issue for bloggers – traffic generation tips.
Marrouat offers a lot of tips on basic writing to engage your readers, some basic information on how to incorporate SEO into your blogging plan, and how to start tackling some of those other blog building subjects, like list-building, surveying your online presence, and even guest blogging.
I knew many of the resources she included, simply because Cendrine is someone I know and talk with already. I wouldn’t be surprised if you hadn’t considered several of the ideas she includes.
I felt this resource was easy to read, easy to implement; it was filled with great advice for new bloggers and still a great refresher for seasoned bloggers too. It fully deserves four out of four stars for writing, engaging, and breaking down the issue of traffic generation for your blog in an easy-to-follow way.
To help celebrate the launch of her book online, March 6th, 2012, Marrouat is hosting a giveaway on her site. All you have to do is subscribe to her email list at http://www.cendrinemarrouat.com before March 5th, 2012 at midnight (Eastern Standard Time) to have a chance to win your own copy of the book!
You can find out more by visiting Marrouat’s launch site, “The Litte eBook on Blogging: 40 Traffic Generation Tips”.
I don’t think you can go wrong with this E-book, especially at her asking price of only $5.99.
To help facilitate the discussion, how about you reply with one of your own questions about building traffic for your blog? I’ve invited Cendrine back to answer the questions she is able to, and I think seeing your questions and comments would be a great way to encourage each other on this little adventure we call blogging!
