31 Days to Build a Better Blog by Darren Rowse.
The 31 Days to Build a Better Blog book has 31 tasks which you can do on a daily basis. For each day you’ll be given a task along with the instructions on both the WHY and HOW of the task of the day. This approach will help you to learn the task in a better way since along with learning you’ll have actually done something with the knowledge.
31 Days to Build a Better Blog book can be used by the newbie bloggers who have just started their blog, bloggers with an ideal blog which stalled in its growth and bloggers with bloggers block and lacking inspiration. But this book is not really for prebloggers who haven’t started a blog, since this workbook doesn’t cover any topics on how to create and setup a blog.
You can use the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog in your own way. You don’t need to force yourself to do the tasks given in the book daily. You can either go for one task a day or one task a week or even one task a month. The great thing about 31DBBB is that you can do it at your own pace and in your own way.
