to your kid’s second-grade teacher—has a blog. They all
have one, in part, because they have information they want to share
with others—from customers and clients to neighbors and
parents. But to actually build a good blog—to create a blog
people want to read—takes thought, planning, and some effort.

managing posts and building a community, creating a successful blog
involves making critical decisions at each step. In this book by
blogger extraordinaire Scott McNulty, you’ll learn how
