This is my first book, published in July 2010, just about a year ago.  It is a how-to on Blogger (Google Blogger as Blogger is one of Google's many free applications). It includes almost everything you need to know to setup, maintain and grow a blog using  Blogger:

  • Create a new blog. 
  • Choose and modify the design. 
  • Making the most of your posts. 
  • Inserting images and image management.
  • How to add all sorts of gadgets like Feedburner, link lists, slideshow.
  • Integrate with Facebook & Twitter!
  • Setting up a blog store using PayPal and Google Checkout!
  • Mapping a domain.
  • SEO tips and more!

And let's not forget there is an advanced blog design chapter where you will learn how to customize HTML and CSS code; and there is a chapter on troubleshooting and finding additional free and professional help!
