Technical Blogging, Second Edition: Amplify Your Influence
Successful people often get recognition by teaching what they know. Blogging is a reliable path to do that, while gaining influence in the process. The problem is getting it right. Far too often professionals start a blog with big hopes, only to quickly give up because they don’t get speedy results. This book will spare you that fate by outlining a careful plan of action. A plan that will bring amazing benefits to your career, new job possibilities, as well as publishing, speaking, and consulting opportunities. And if you're blogging for business, you'll attract new customers, partners, and outstanding employees.
Understand what blogging is and how it can improve your professional (and personal) life. Devise a plan for your new or existing blog. Create remarkable content that ranks well in Google and is shared by readers. Beat procrastination by employing proven time-management techniques that make you an efficient and effective blogger. Promote your blog by mastering on-page and off-page SEO, as well as social media promotion, without compromising your ethics. Analyze your traffic to understand your audience and measure growth. Build a community around your blog and make the best of your newfound popularity by maximizing its benefits for your career, business, or simply for extra income.
Create and maintain a successful technical blog that will amplify your impact, influence, and reach by following Antonio's step-by-step plan.
