Industry Reviews

"If you're not a Blogger user then Essential Blogging, the king of the 'how to' books, would me more appropriate." "Packed with tips and code examples it is a treasure trove for the writer who wants to move beyond the standard templates bundled with each system. Even advanced users are likely to find some value in its discussion of BloggerAPI clients used for posting to a blog without firing up a browser." PCW, March "... Essential Blogging, the king of the 'how to' books... Packed with tips and code examples it is a treasure trove for the writer who wants to move beyond the standard templates bundled with each system. Comprising first-hand accounts of what blogging means to some of the community's leading lights, it is precisely what The Weblog Handbook should have been." - Nik Rawlinson, PCW, March
