What is this about: Exactly what it says on the tin: 62 different types of posts.
What else is this about: Nothing really, it’s a how to guide for each post.
Should you read: if you’re always looking for ideas for new blog posts yes, but these aren’t going to be applicable to all blogs.
Blurb: Author and blogger Marcie L. Hill wants bloggers to know there is a way to overcome blogger’s block. In her book, 62 Blog Posts to Overcome Blogger’s Block Marcie shows bloggers and content marketers how to produce engaging content that will attract more followers, get more shares and likes; and boost your brand and bottom line. :
This book provides tips, tools, and strategies on how to create blog posts, which will help keep your audience returning. In addition, it will boost your creativity; improve your writing and technology skills; and increase your engagement with your readers.
Not a blogger? That’s okay. This book is for anyone who produces content for online or print properties.
Tips and information inside the book include: the pros and other consideration for each post type; visual examples of each type of post so bloggers can see how to create them; and the combined knowledge of approximately 60 bloggers, in all areas of expertise, who have over 10 million global followers.
Like most bloggers, I’m always on the look out for blogging help, especially how to learn about different types of posts. And with 62 in this book, you’re bound to find some you’re going to like — how-tos, editorials, quick tips and the like.
But here’s the thing, while I am always looking out for ways to learn about blogging, and the different types of posts, often times they’re directed at other types of blogs — like those offering a service, self-help or advice blogs — not book blogs. Some day, I’d like to find some blogging help aimed specifically at blogs like mine.
That said, with a little time, patience and a thinking cap, I think some of these posts are adaptable for a book blog. I also think you’ve probably seen variations of these ideas around the blogsphere, and the content isn’t exactly as unique as I hoped it would be.
I guess it’s just what you make of it in the end.
