Blog Blazers – Thoughts of 40 Top Bloggers packed in one awesome book

by ZK on January 21, 2009

I just received one of the most awesome Blogging Books in my mailbox this morning – Blog Blazers. A book that interviews Top 40 Bloggers on how to create successful blogs. It’s not a comprehensive guide to blogging, it’s much more impactful and goes a step further into exploring the thought process or the mind set of 40 successful bloggers.

The book is written by Stephane Grenier, founder of FollowSteph.com. Stephen has spent considerable amount of time in putting together this book which lives up to it’s expectation.

The book features interviews with high profile bloggers (Seth Godin,Aaron Wall, Yaro Starak and Anita Campbell to name a few). I love the format of the book, power packed with 200 pages but when you start to read it’s very easy to absorb the content.

Responses by bloggers to question mentioned below are worth reading :

- What makes a blog successful ?
- How long did it take you to become a successful blogger ?
- Which blogs do you read daily ?
- Which blogs do you recommend for new bloggers ?

Stephen has asked the same set of questions ( 24 questions ) to all 40 bloggers, each interview is one chapter of the book.

What happens when you ask the same questions to 40 bloggers, you get 40 different power packed replies. That to me is the value and greatness of this book. One of the tried and tested formula for success is to follow successful people, understand the mind set of successful people.

The featured bloggers are experts in a wide array of fields: entrepreneurship, technology, internet marketing, small business etc. I was especially glad to see my favourite bloggers Yaro Starak and Aaron Wall, featured in the book.

No matter what your area of expertise is, there are plenty of actionable tips that you can take away from each of the 40 bloggers. Depending on your blog niche or your expertise you can pay attention to bloggers within your niche.

As this blog operates in the Internet Marketing and SEO niche, I paid special attention to Yaro and Aaron for obvious reasons. I also particularly liked the tips shared by Anita Campbell in this book.

One common success principle for all bloggers was how little money they spend to market their blogs and depending on the power of networking with other bloggers or reaching out to other bloggers and writing great content.

Another valuable takeaway is learning what Top Bloggers regularly read to keep them abreast and on top of current trends, innovations and products relating to their niche.

I recommend that you read Blog Blazers not once but a few times to absorb what the top bloggers are telling you and mark out all the tips that resonate with you. If you get just one good tip per blogger, you will have forty power packed focussed tips to improve your blogging.

You can buy the ebook or the hardcopy of the book. I highly recommend you to buy the hardcopy of Blog Blazers as it has a better impact and you can mark out tips that resonate with you.

I would like to thank Steph for his dedication in putting together this book and for sending me a copy of this wonderful book.

Its a book about a bunch of geeks. There are other successful bloggers out there that write about things other than being a blogger. Take Tucker Max, for example.

darn good book review…it’s amazing where the comment links and web surfing take me…thanks for the post.

Avon Blake March 18, 2009 at 6:50 am

What you neglected to say is that the book is full of interviews with people who do one thing – they make money by telling other people how much money they make. Nothing but a book full of interviews with sub affiliate marketing scammers.

Sorry, but the book is waste of time.

ZK@Internet Marketing Blog March 18, 2009 at 7:36 am

Hi Avon ,

The book has nothing to do with telling people how to make money, its about how you can have a midset to make money online.

Its about the right mind set.

I wonder if blogging will become a victim of its own success or die from over saturation. The line between opinion and fact has definitely been blurred. It’s messy and dynamic, but so is democracy. We’re a society of immediate gratification for our material fulfillment or edification. We’ve seen the consequences in our current economic plight. Writing is often a struggle and it should be. There has to be a sense of respect for the crafting words into ideas; I’m afraid blogging without self-restraint may trivialize public discourse. Thomas Paine once said “That which we obtain too easily, we esteem too lightly.”

The problem with books about things that exist on the Internet is that they can be out of date by the time the printer has finished printing them. It is like that saying “you cannot step into the same river twice” -still could be good to get some insight into the subject deeper a 500 word blogpost, which is most of what has been written on this topic.
