I am always interested in ways to increase the profitability of my blog. Halden Zimmerman's Guide to High Impact Blogs For Life was a book that I hoped would give me more tips.
Now, this book is easy to read and is very short. At 40 pages long, you can practically read this in the waiting room of your doctor's office. And whether or not you like it depends on how particular you are about your reading material.
While there are good tips, I found the writing to be rather condescending. The author kept referring to putting in tons of work in the beginning (which I completely agree with), so that you do not have to later because you will be living the life you dreamed. All if you follow this blogging plan. Don't get me wrong. The blogging plan is a good one, but I do not expect anyone to move from the middle class (which is where I am in) into the upper class without having some strokes of luck.
Now, I do love and appreciate Zimmerman's concept of increased income only being life changing if you are able to avoid greater responsibilities and demands on time. I truly do love that. Right now, I have plenty of responsibility and demands (stay at home mom and blogger), but I certainly don't feel bogged down. However, I know timing, contacts and luck are also factors in achieving what Zimmerman envisions.
I leave it up to you, the reader, to decide whether or not to pick up this book. It's a good starter read, but don't expect any real depth.
Full disclosure: I was sent this book free of charge, and received compensation, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
