I Wrote Another Book – You Can Win a Copy

Long time readers of the blog know that several years ago, I wrote Where the Hell Am I Going?, a book about my literal and figurative journey after Where the Hell Am I Going Book Covergetting laid off just before my wedding. The month-long trip around the US was great for me to clear my head, and I decided to publish what I wrote on the road in 2010. (It’s still for sale if you’re interested in a quick and fun read: Amazon paperback – $14.99/Kindle – $9.99)

I loved writing that book and figured I would write another one of these days. But I didn’t predict that my next book would be something so completely different. When Globe Pequot Press asked me if I would be interested in writing a book in their “How to” series for home-based businesses, I figured it would be fun. And it was.

My book, How to Start a Home-based Blogging Business, is now for sale all over the place from Amazon to Barnes & Noble and everything in between.

Basically what I did here was write down everything I went through and considered along the way as I built Cranky Flier and Cranky Concierge into what it is today. It should be pretty easy to read and it goes step by step through various bits and pieces that will help you build your own blogging business.

Is this a definitive guide on how to startHow to Start a Home-Based Blogging Business a home-based blogging business? No. I don’t think that’s possible. There will always be a lot of different opinions on how to do things. I have, however, built a successful business this way, and I’d like to think others can as well.

To celebrate, I’m going to give away a couple copies of the book. If you’re interested, just leave a comment below and make sure to include your email address in the field as requested when you leave the comment. (It won’t be displayed to the public and you must include it to be entered.) You can say anything you want in the comment, just make sure you leave it by Thursday, March 21 at 1159pm. I will then use a random number generator to pick the two winners on Friday.

And of course, if you don’t win, the book is for sale at your local bookstore.
