Well, I’ve finally found the blog primer book I have been looking for. I spent last evening devouring Biz Stone’s book called “Blogging: Genius Strategies for Instant Web Content” (now 30% off at Amazon.com). The book is very practical, not too heavy on the technical jargon and written with a great, casual style. It’s full of great practical tips (like linking mentions of books through your Amazon Affiliate ID). One of the blurbs for the book calls it “casual and humorous, but authoritative” and I think that that’s a great description. If you’d rather learn about blogs in one handy book rather than chase around the web looking for articles and faqs, this book is the one I’d recommend to start with.
