The gorgeous AllyTeePee brought my this book for my birthday, "Blog Inc"
Published by Joy Deangdeeler Cho.
The book is eye catching, and my two favourite colours! YEY.
It comes with SUCH useful tips.
Like how to take good pictures, Advice on monetising your blog and a thousand things more!
I'm really trying to get my blogging back on track and this is a brilliant place to start :)
I've took to blogging a lot more than I thought I would and I'm enjoying it so so much.
This book gives me lots of helpful ways to improve my blog and keep myself, and my audience happy.
As i'm a perfectionist, this helps me obtain that :)
As for monetising your blog, I'm not ready yet, but who knows what the future holds?

  2. I was actually really disappointed in this book. I thought it was pitched confusingly and the author was SO imperious. She did my frikking nut in! If you're interested, the review is here: http://www.beckybedbug.com/2013/06/book-review-blog-inc.html
