This is old news to folks who subscribe to the newsletter, but for those who don’t I’d like to share the release of my new ebook with you.
The name of the book is Make Money Blogging. Since most of you are already blogging and have passed the beginning stage, you guys aren’t my target audience. Well, you are, sort of.
You see, the book not only has the beginning basic stuff, but I also include blogging tips, advice and much of the blogging philosophy that I’ve developed over the years.
New Bloggers Every Day
I wrote this book because new bloggers are born every day. Going back to my August post where I quote statistics from Pingdom.com, only 13% of people online have blogs. That’s a small percentage especially when you consider that only 1/3 of the world’s population is currently online.
Think about it. There are new people being introduced to the Internet daily and of those new people, a small fraction of them will become bloggers. This means there is a growing market of newbie bloggers who are thirsty for quality, easy to understand information on what blogging is and how to become a blogger.
What’s in the Book?
In the book I not only explain what blogging is and types of blogs, I also discuss the age-old question of whether or not to use a free or paid for blogging platform. I give tips on blogging frequency, word count, SEO and blog monetization. These are things every blogger should know.
Of course, I couldn’t write a book on blogging without providing the much-needed motivation to keep blogging. We all have faced that blogging brick wall at one time or another and wondered, “Why am I doing this?”
Make Money Blogging gives a plain, simple, no-nonsense approach to becoming a successful blogger.
NJFM Affiliate Program
The book is priced at $9.98. I chose an even amount because I’m offering a 50/50 commission split to NJFM affiliates. The book is currently available for sale on e-Junkie. You have the option of purchasing the book as a non-affiliate for the full price, or as an affiliate and earn $4.99 on your purchase.
Affiliates are paid once a month about 2 weeks after the month closes. Although you’ll shell out the full $9.98 as an affiliate, you’ll see $4.99 of it back when commissions are issued.
To become an affiliate, use the NJFM e-Junkie link. If you already have an e-Junkie account, just look for the book in the marketplace. If you don’t have an account, create one, become an NJFM affiliate and begin sharing the book. The 50/50 commission split is my way of thanking you for not only reading the book, but for sharing it with other newbie bloggers (and there are tons of them).
All I know is that when I first started, I wish I had such a book to save me the bumps and bruises I received while learning my way around.
My first book So You Want to Be a Freelance Writer is still available for free, but I’m monitoring it using e-Junkie. I’ve also uploaded the “free” book to Amazon in the Kindle format but unfortunately; Amazon wouldn’t let me share it for free. So, if you want the Kindle edition of So You Want to Be a Freelance Writer, you’ll have to fork over $.99.
I’m converting the NJFM’s Blogging for Beginners book into a Kindle compatible format for upload to Amazon, and a Nook compatible format for Barnes & Noble, iPods, iPads and Apple.
BTW, If you haven’t signed up for the NJFM newsletter, you should. I intend to utilize the newsletter a bit more than I have in the past.
Update: 11/16/2011: I’ve changed the cover and title of the book.
