I binge listened this book to help me finish Elite Blog Academy

If you can’t afford Elite Blog Academy then take this book and just do what it says. I actually joined EBA 5 years ago and just never finished it. So I’m finishing it now and just needed some help and inspiration to pick back up and finish. EBA is basically a more detailed version of this book. So just get to work. I’ve actually done a bunch of the work and took notes as I listened to this because they tell you not to jump ahead in the EBA course. So this was my way of cheating, haha. This book puts EBA into a nutshell, and is such a great resource.

Worth the Credit

I have an 8 year old hobby blog that I always wanted to expand into a business and could never quite figure out how to make that happen. I powered through this book in about 3 sessions and took notes like a school child. I absolutely know where to go next and feel like I can finally make the leap into the next phase.

Great audiobook for bloggers

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook and found too many useful information on how to manage my blog. The author didn’t discuss technicalities (like wordpress) and she made it clear in the beginning. She focused on how to manage my business and to setting your mentality towards blogging. One of the concepts I liked that the blog is not the business in itself. It is one of the powerful marketing tools.

I started my blog 3 months ago and this audiobook was informative and useful whether you are a beginner or had your blog for running for a while.

Best Book on Blogging Ever!!!

Ruth’s “tell it like it is” and “no fluff” style gives you exactly what you need to do to start your business and to make your blog a valuable asset. Please pick up a copy to read and/or listen. I did both! Great book! I highly recommend.

This book is selling something else

I think this book is selling a course.
There are a few tips but honestly more half of the book is not showing how to make profit.

I'll be listening again

A blogging book which will help change your mindset around starting an online business. It's an easy listen. I've been replaying this one to inspire me. I do feel that the author must have a wealth of information that she held back somewhat, and probably could have offered more actionable advice. Still 5 stars from me though. I would recommend listening to this alongside a blog course if you are starting from zero.
I liked the overview of a business plan, and the explanation of a blog being a marketing tool for your online business. I also enjoyed the stories mentioned throughout; very relatable.
