Debra Eckerling Shares Blog and Goal Setting Expertise

TITLE: Write On Blogging
SUBTITLE: 51 Tips to Create, Write & Promote Your Blog 
AUTHOR: Debra Eckerling
GENRE: Non-Fiction: 
CATEGORY: Blogging & Blogs and Writing Skills

All an author has to say to me is “tips” and I’m sold. They make easy reading and I nearly always find something among them that is new to me.

Debra Eckerling’s new book, Write On Blogging,does that for me, but it does a whole lot more. It’s a short book, but it’s complete—a whole lot more than tips. 

I like that Eckerling doesn’t assume an author knows anything about blogging. She takes her tutorial from the needs of fresh (and scared!) beginnings like opening a blog to developing blogging skills that even a veteran will appreciated. 
She also keeps a blogger on track with practical advice like “You want to develop a long and lasting relationship with your blog, and also open the lines of communication with your readers” found in Chapter Eight titled “Stay on Track.” 
She also brings the same goal-making skills she offers her clients to this slender book—things like scheduling, priorities, commitment.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who blogs. It will either put bloggers on track or help keep them there.
