The Digital Mom Handbook

I’ve been drawn to “how-to” books lately. (I’d love to get lost in a novel but I don’t seem to have the desire when I’m picking which book to read next.) So I was drawn to The Digital Mom Handbook by its tagline “How to Blog, Vlog, Tweet, and Facebook Your Way to a Dream Career at Home.” Specifically, I was interested in  vlogging because its something I’d like to learn more about. And if I can figure out a way to supplement my income from home, even better.

I ordered this book from Amazon on Monday. It arrived by Friday. And I devoured it by Sunday.

If you’re looking for a book to help you get started in blogging, this is a good choice. It lacks the technical information you might need – the nuts and bolts of starting a blog – but it more than covers the bigger issues all bloggers should consider before starting a blog with the hopes of making money from it.

The book is written for would-be bloggers but experienced bloggers will find it worth the read, too. I’ve been blogging for over a year now, and immersed in social media for three years, and I took away several useful nuggets. Chapter 5 “Manage the Benjamins” was particularly useful. The authors, Audrey McClelland and Colleen Padilla, did a great job of providing food for thought and then providing the resources to find more information.

I have plans for this blog and another blog in development. I’m definitely going to hang on to The Digital Mom Handbook as a resource when I’m ready to take the next steps with those blogs.

  1. Thanks for suggesting this book. I just started my own blog last week and I am looking for ways to improve it.
