It is mid-August, Mom Blogging for Dummies (Amazon, Barnes & Noble) has been out less than a month, and so far I’m super-proud of how the book has done so far. I’ve gotten great feedback from readers – even from a few guys and dads!
I’m excited to present a free downloadable chapter of Mom Blogging for Dummies – no strings attached! You don’t have to give me your email address, sign up for anything, or even promise me your first born child. This chapter is simply free for the taking – please share it wherever you want or with whoever you want – as long as it’s legal, duh. 🙂
In this 20 page chapter I talk about:
* Understanding what makes mom blogs different
* Exploring the range of opportunities you can develop with your blog
* Avoiding some of the easiest mistakes to make
* Getting to know some of the blog-writing basics

And as a quick reminder – I’m traveling quite a bit in 2011 and 2012 speaking at conferences on the subject of blogging – if I’m in your neck of the woods, please come and say hi!
I am a brand new blogger and saw your book in Barnes & Noble a few weeks ago. Since I am (was) clueless about blogging and websites and all things technical, I picked it up right away and started reading in the store. It’s been a tremendous help to me. I’m highlighting and dog-earing like crazy. Thanks for making this easier for me. I’m looking forward to the blogging journey.
Thank you for the free chapter. Hope the tips will apply for every bloggers.
This book is wonderful! I’m just halfway through and I feel like I’ve learned so much already! I think your writing is clear, concise and relatable. Thank you.
I’m excited to see the release of your new book! Congrats! I think a resource like this has been a long time coming for stay at home moms and the like to really get their feet wet in the blogosphere. There is a lot of untapped talent out there and I think your book will be a boon for them go get started!
I just bought your book for one of my best friends and she is ecstatic. After seeing how psyched I’m confident there are going to be a lot of mommy bloggers to look out for in the near future! Congrats:)
Wendy, just starting blogging, and based on what I have been learning the past few years about sales, having spent most of my life on the technical side of computers, it was so uplifting to hear your book does not deal with the technical side of getting a mom’s site up, but the personal and business side of things.
The Industrial Age and the education system it has created knows nothing of what business is nor how to be successful at it. It is inspiring to find someone helping moms learn those skills. On Mother’s Day in my church there is always a sermon on the Proverbs 31 woman, and all the moms like being called a Proverbs 31 woman. But everyone overlooks that nearly half of her description is about her skills in business, and yet it seems no one remembers that part.
Wendy this book is an incredible gift to women and our world, thank you for writing it.
