A book devoted to book blogging reviewed on a book blog sounds like inversion, right? Barb Drozdowich experimented in a first edition of The Book Blogger Platform with technical details, screenshots, but found better ways to convey her insights, practical tips and helpful guidance for novice and advanced book lovers spreading their reviews through a blog.

In this second edition technical details and instructions are pushed to a series of over 20 Youtube videos. The booklet itself concentrates on setting up a weblog through primarily Blogger or WordPress, getting (advanced) review copies for free from Netgalley and Edelweiss, and cross-posting your reviews to e.g. Amazon, Goodreads, and Librarything, as well as social media platforms. Barb is honest about (limited possibilities for) making money from your blog, the amount of time it takes to gather your books, actually reading, writing a review and ensure its publication and spread, backing up your blog's content.

The book can be used as a guideline to set up your blog, as well as a refresher for veteran book bloggers like me. Topics like branding, the use of images and hotlinks, blog tours, as well as your personal review policy, various ways to review and promote books, advertising, and finding fellow book bloggers are addressed. Drozdowich did a tremendous job to have lots of up to date content in her book to help you out, blogging with confidence about your passion: books. ( )

In The Book Blogger Platform, author Barb Drozdowich calls upon her own personal book blogging experience to write a very informative and thorough step-by-step guide to creating, maintaining, and enjoying book blogging.

As a book review blogger since June 2010, I wish I had this awesome guide when I began to think about creating a book blog that would share my passion and love for reading with other bookworms. As I read through each chapter of the guide, I found a lot of valuable information, advice and guidance that is very relevant and useful.

In The Book Blogger Platform, the author takes the reader through every stage of creating a book blog that is more than just a hobby, it is a labor of love. From defining who book bloggers are; to creating a blog using the popular sites of Free Word Press and Blogger; to the intricate details of formatting the perfect blog that will capture your passion; to the trials, tribulations, and satisfaction of creating a successful book blog that will generate worldwide book followers; to social media exposure, working with authors and publicists, and virtual book blog tours; this is a nifty reference manual that provides the perfect guidance and advice for the newbie and experienced book blogger!

It doesn't matter if you are a newbie or an experienced book blogger, The Book Blogger Platform is a must have, it will always be a useful reference guide that you can refer back to from time to time!

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for my honest review and participation in a virtual book blast event hosted by Goddess Fish Promotions.
