Book Giveaway: Confessions of a Professional Blogger

confessions-of-a-professional-blogger-small“Soon, it became clear that blogs themselves – and blog networks – could become profitable businesses. Within a couple of years, blogs evolved from being part of a business to becoming the business.”
Miranda Marquit.

Have you ever thought of starting a blog? Do you enjoy writing? Would you like to be paid to write? What does it take to be an online writer?

If the idea of blogging and online writing stirs your interest, then Miranda Marquit’s new book, Confessions of a Professional Blogger, is the book to read.

Miranda answers all the questions that bloggers have, when it comes to blogging and writing. In this 100+ page book, Miranda discusses in-depth the ins and outs of the online writing industry. It’s a step by step guide on what it takes to become a successful online writer.

Miranda covers a lot of topics in-depth, and gives both a professional and personal spin. Even if you’re not a professional writer, you’ll certainly find a lot of helpful advice and strategies you can use. In fact, the book extends far beyond just writing and is a must read for anyone in the blogging business.

As a trained journalist, Miranda certainly knows her profession. I first met Miranda, back in 2011 at the Financial Bloggers Conference. At that time, she was already a successful and established online writer. Part of that success came from not only determination, but clear focus and honing her skills as an online writer. That’s something Miranda covers in one of her book chapters – you can’t do everything.

Here are some of the key chapters in the book:

  • Sometimes I don’t write what I know.
  • You write a lot of crap when money is the object.
  • Bidding on jobs sucks.
  • You need to get to know people.
  • You don’t have to do everything.
  • Everyone writes the same stuff.

    I’m someone with a degree in Writing, and I find the idea of freelance writing on the internet… intimidating. I would love a few pointers for a potential new income stream!

I’m trying to get it to the point so if I were to ever lose my job I could keep all of my bills covered (and in the meantime increase my savings account!)
