Hello everyone. Today I'm going to be reviewing a book that's been making its rounds of the blogosphere lately. Get Rich Blogging by Zoe Griffin. Its written by the author of Live Like A VIP who earns a six figure salary from her blog. The book is split into two parts. The first part gives tips on setting up, managing and monetising a blog but it is not specific to any type of blog. Part two gives tips for fashion bloggers, parenting bloggers etc from experts in that field.
I found part 1 to be very interesting. I learnt a lot from it and there were a few tips that I found absolutely amazing. And there were some tips that I just didn't feel applied to my type of blog. Like for example, she lists places where you can buy stock photos and recommends doing this. But I've always found that for beauty/fashion/lifestyle blogs its way better to take your own photos to inject some personality into your blog. Although I can't really argue with her because obviously her blog is very successfull! And some of them are a bit out dated. But on the whole I found this to be an interesting read and I certainly enjoyed it. You could find all of these tips by hunting through various Pinterest boards but it is handy to have them all in one place I suppose.
Part 2 wasn't as great if you ask me. I decided that I would read all of the sections as I thought that every little would help. Except they were set out in exactly the same way and all of the bloggers were asked the same questions. This made it very samey and in my eyes, unhelpful. Overall I thought the book was good but the tips weren't anything new. You can find them all for free if you search hard enough. That being said, it was nice to have them all in one spot.
What do you think? Would you ever read a book like this?
