I was not compensated for writing this post. I received a review copy of How to Blog a Book. My opinions are 100% honest and 100% mine.

My review of How to Blog a Book
This book is genius. It provides a whole new concept to blogging. After all, bloggers write because they love to write, right? So it only makes sense that some bloggers might want to write a book (I know I do). But how?
I don’t mean simply “how to write a book,” mind you. I mean how do I go about writing a book…what method do I use to create the content, other than just sitting down and writing? It’s not exactly easy to come up with an original idea — and it’s not as easy as one might think to just sit at your computer and start writing. If you’re blogging — writing — then it just makes sense to transform that content into a book. It seems so obvious, yet it literally never occurred to me to do so.
How to Blog a Book is like a blueprint for blogging your way to a book, as well as the keys to successful blogging/writing. It’s important to promote your blog and have visibility. After all, blogging without an audience is not really going to get you very far. Bloggers are always looking to increase traffic — and Nina Amir helps you figure that out.
I can’t recommend How to Blog a Book enough. Even if you don’t want to write a book, this book can help you. If you do want to write a book, this book is invaluable. For writers, How to Blog a Book will be a resource you (and I) refer to regularly. Add this to your library — you’ll be grateful for Nina’s guidance.
