About The Million Dollar Blog

This book is broken down into two parts.

The first part is all about the pre-launch of your blog; finding your passion, deciding on a niche, and understanding why you plan on blogging in the first place.

The second part is about what happens after you’ve launched your blog and once it’s up and running; how to write posts, the different monetization methods available, and how to generate traffic.

Natasha also looks at blogging from two aspects.

First from the personal aspect; those that are blogging on behalf of themselves, and second from a business aspect; those that are blogging purely for content marketing purposes.

Ask the experts

As you go through the book you’ll notice some boxed sections. This is where Natasha has interviewed other successful bloggers including some very large household names, such as Grant Cardone and Seth Godin.

Usually, when authors interview people to add content to their book, I find these sections to be worthless because they’re just generic answers to generic questions.

However, in this book, I found the interviews to be very valuable, and I think it’s because Natasha asked the right questions to get the right information that her readers want to know.

One small problem

I do have one small problem with this book, and it is when Natasha talks about the two types of traffic – paid and ‘free’.

A small pet hate of mine is when people use the term ‘free traffic’.

FREE TRAFFIC DOES NOT EXIST – Organic traffic exists, but there is no such thing as free traffic. All traffic has a cost to generate. 

But besides the terminology (and I’m probably just being persnickety) I agree with everything else that Natasha teaches when it comes to obtaining traffic. I just would have preferred it if she called it ‘organic traffic’ and not ‘free traffic’.

My overall thoughts

Considering the size of this book (it’s about 260 pages) I flew through it rather quickly. It’s written in a simple and easy-digestible manner, which I just love.

As far as books on blogging go, this is a great book and ideal for those who have just started blogging or are thinking about doing it in the near future.

It’s probably not the best book for seasoned bloggers. However, I would suggest that if this book is not suited to you (or after you have read this book first) check out The Content Machine by Dan Norris which delves a bit deeper into the world of SEO and how to push your website up the Google rankings.
