I bought the book ProBlogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income and since yesterday I have it in my hands.
Before you throw me stones, I have to say that I'm still keeping my idea of proof if it's possible make money with a blog without spend money on it.
Then... How I bought it? I bought the book with my earnings of Minute Workers. The site where you can earn money doing easy jobs.
If you want to know what is Minute Workers and how to make money, you can read the article that I wrote:
Even with the paid book I still have money to bought a Hosting and Domain Name. I have to think about it.
I don't know if move this blog to a new hosting or make a new blog with different niche.
Well, let's focus on the book.
I'm very happy with this book. It have all the necesary that you should know to start a blog from the beggining and monetize it.
I bought the paperback book because I like the feelings of the book in my hands and smell of the paper, but if you want to, you can buy the e-book too.
The price of the book it's just $15.96, I think that it's cheap and the content it's really useful. In just one day I have readed the half of the book.
