I recently read the book, WordPress for Business Bloggers, and as a user of WordPress for years, it wasn’t really useful.
However, I think it would be a great resource for somebody who is just getting into WordPress and wants to start up a blog.
The book covers the basics and serves as a good primer on the terminology, options, and getting the most out of WordPress.
I was glad to see that chapter 10 was focused on monetizing a blog. This chapter doesn’t delve deep into affiliate marketing, but it gives a quick overview on using AdSense, Amazon, and various widgets to monetize a blog.
It’s a little pricey at $39.99 (list price), but for those new to blogging, it’s worth the price, rather than trying to find all of this information in blogs and forums.
