Dana Sibilsky’s Tips to Successful and Profitable Blogging

Dana Sibilsky's Tips to Successful Blogging Review | RedBarberry.com

I was hoping to receive Dana Sibilsky’s Tips to Successful and Profitable Blogging book at the same time as Brandon Colker’s How to Make Big Bucks From Big Blogs, so I could do a side-by-side comparison, but as life figures, Dana Sibilsky’s book came a day after my Brandon Colker review was due. I got this book for free as an audiobook.

In a way the two books are very similar in content. But if I was to choose a book to listen to in a car as someone who just started or is thinking to start blogging, I would choose Dana Sibilky’s. The content is essentially the same, but I found Sibilky’s book to be more cohesive and have a better flow. At first I was a bit turned off that the narrator was a male, I like my audiobooks to be voiced by their authors, or at least closely resemble them, but after the first couple of chapters I got past that feeling. In total there are ten chapters, two of which are introduction and conclusion, and 8 chapters addressing specific topics.

My biggest takeaways from the book are:  practice writing every day, even if it is just in your head; don’t be shy to self promote; and don’t discount the importance of having a good comment platform. But  my favorite analogy from the book is on the amount of daily blog visitors. It can be quite upsetting when your efforts of creating quality content do not return the numbers of visitors as you had hoped, but Sibilsky suggests to imagine your online visitors in a room in front of you. Of course, having a 100 people in your audience is very rewarding, but those 20 people that come to see you every day should not be dismissed and undervalued. They are your true fans and supporters and should receive as much love and an attention as the audience of 100, or 1000 people.

I would recommend the audio book over the written book for the basic advantage of being able to listen to it while you’re on your way to work or to go grocery shopping. 🙂
