If I had told you that someone could write an 80 page e-Book just on blog commenting, you’d probably look at me like I was crazy. Blog commenting, really? It’s something that seemed so simple. Something so small, it’s often overlooked.
However, this book opens your eyes as to how large of an impact blog commenting can actually have. Here is my review for Blogging From Paradise: How To Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting, by Ryan Biddulph.
Before I actually begin talking about the book itself, I’d first like to talk about the author. For those who aren’t already familiar with him, Ryan Biddulph is the owner of the BloggingFromParadise.com. Ryan travels the world with his fiancée Kelli, living off of the income his blog and other assets has produced for them. His story is a remarkable one, and his website aims to aid you in achieving a similar level of success should you wish to do so.
Having been a reader of Blogging From Paradise for a while now, I had a certain expectation of greatness when I began reading the book. Let me tell you – I was not disappointed.
I have always thought that I knew a good bit about blog commenting. It’s one of my main traffic building strategies, and is actually the first technique I suggest in my free traffic building course. By the time I had finished the book, I realized how much room I had to actually improve my blog commenting technique
The book starts out by showing just how undervalued blog commenting is as both a marketing and a networking strategy. Ryan details the benefits of blog commenting and goes on to tie them to personal examples (like how blog commenting led to endorsements from both Chris Brogan and Yaro Starak), proving just how valuable blog commenting can actually be if you do it effectively.
The book then goes on to discuss specific strategies and tactics to make your blog commenting efforts far more effective. While I won’t go into the specific details, I’ll tell you this – the comments you leave after reading this book are going to change drastically. Your new blog comments will result in more clicks to your website, better relationships with other bloggers in your niche, and even save you time. I don’t know about you, but I’m the type of guy that likes to save as much time as possible. After all, time is money.
What I really loved about this book is how personal it felt. As a reader, you’re able to instantly connect with Ryan and his experiences, and the way it’s structured makes it feel like you’re talking to a good friend. Ryan does a good job at keeping the book flowing, while also reinforcing key ideas to ensure you retain and remember them. This makes the book a quick and entertaining read.
For that reason, I consider this book to be a good investment for bloggers looking to grow their business and expand their network. I could go on and on about this book, but I’d much rather you spend your time actually reading it than just reading about it. You can pick up the book up on Amazon using the link below. For $12.97, you’d be a fool not to make the investment into your business. This book will result in more traffic, a larger network, saved time, and ultimately, more money.
In the words of Ryan himself… if you’re blogging without being connected, you’re just publishing a diary!
