I’m in a Book! Blog Blazers: 40 Top Bloggers Share Their Secrets

Blog Blazers is a book where “40 Top Bloggers Share Their Secrets to Creating a High-Profile, High-Traffic, and High-Profit Blog.” And amid the likes if Seth Godin, Eric Sink, Aaron Wall, and Jeff Atwood is yours truly (chapter 34).

It’s an easy book to pick up for a few minutes at a time since each chapter (comprising one interview) is only 5 or 6 pages. Many of the ideas presented are unique to this book, and I’ve been keeping a running list of changes I plan to implement on this blog.

The book hit the shelves last week. You can buy it from Amazon, or from the Blog Blazers website.

Good question. Blog Blazers is an interview book, so the author (Stephane Grenier) interviewed 40 bloggers with the same set of questions, such as:

– What makes a blog successful according to you?
– What is your most successful blog post ever?
– What’s your biggest tip for writing a successful blog post?
– What are your quick and short five best tips for blogging?
– etc…

The format works well, since each person’s take is unique, but you get to hear the information in the same general format in each chapter. I’ve found it interesting to compare Seth Godin’s answers to Eric Sink’s, as an example.
