Ebook Review: The First Sentence is the Hardest
One of the things I love about blogging is networking with other bloggers. I have some that have turned into real life friends. I have some that I just know and appreciate online, and others that are online only friends. But I know that whenever I see an email from them that I will check it first. It's going to be something I want to read.
One of those people is from Jerri Ann, who I met from my work on Label Daddy. From the time we started negotiating what would work for us on that project I felt a connection with her. She makes me giggle all the time. So when she posted that she wanted people to review her eBook, The First Sentence is the Hardest, I knew I wanted to check it out. I also work with Jerri Ann through Four Reasons Media as a blogger for them.
The first thing I noticed about this book is it is totally Jerri Ann. Some more seasoned bloggers may not like everything she says, but she shoots straight from the hip. But is willing to explain why she feels that way. I believe she brings up some very valid points as well.
The ebook will give you her thoughts on developing a blog with lots of traffic that will generate more specific advertising and sponsored posts opportunities. Also she talks about how to price yourself, while I don't always agree with her thoughts on this, it gave me some thoughts to think about. Although a lot of her thoughts on this I totally agree with. She talks about where you should publish your content. All along she does not expect you to agree with her, just explains her thinking and why she feels this way. You are free to agree or disagree.
There is so much more that she touches on as well, but I will leave that for you to discover.
I have been blogging for 2 years and while a lot of the info I knew, she gave me some interesting points to think about. So while I would suggest this would be a great ebook for new bloggers for sure, I still think more experienced bloggers can learn something or at least be given another angle to think about. I fully believe it is worth the price of the ebook and found it quite the interesting read.
