The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging is a book that I would highly recommend to anyone who:
1) Wants to Start a Blog
2) Has Started a Blog But Rarely Posts
3) Wants to Make the Best Use of Their Blog
Though some of the information is basic, it allows the book to have a bigger target audience. You do not need to have any background about blogging to make use of this book. The Huffington Post is an extremely successful weblog that cranks out posts at all hours of the day. They get millions of hits per month and obviously the bloggers who contribute to their site have a lot of advice to offer.
I have been blogging for a little over a half year. I have found it to be a great way to get my opinions out and in writing. It has also allowed me to connect with people I otherwise never would have connected with. I love the information I find on some blogs, the stories from people's everyday lives, and relatives blogs (such as my aunts) where I can see what they are up to however far they are from where I am. I now am a contributor at a very cool group blog, United Liberty, where there are many contributors passionate about liberty. Needless to say, my experience with blogging has been pretty positive.
I would highly recommend blogging to anyone, really. Perhaps you will find it is not for you, but maybe you will really enjoy it and have thousands of readers. You never know until you try.
