I don't often read how-to or self help books, but when I was offered a copy of The Blogger Trailmap I thought I would like to read it. I hoped there would be a few nuggets of information to help me in my own blogging journey and this turned out to be the case. Frost has put together a guide which I think would be most suitable for new bloggers although there are also ideas that seasoned bloggers might not yet have considered. The Blogger Teailmap focuses on concepts rather than specific instructions so it's more geared towards discussing what a blogger might want to do than on explaining exactly how to go about it.

I was put off a little by the amateurish looking cover design and the smattering of strangely worded sentences inside the book. Proofreading needed! However these don't impact greatly on Frost's ability to put their message across. One aspect I particularly liked is that The Blogger Trailmap advocates a circular method of promotion whereby a blog can promote a tangible product with social media interactions promoting both avenues. In this case, publisher Zavesti creates blogging tools which are linked to from within The Blogger Trailmap and provide additional content to that within the book, and vice versa. It's a perfect example of practicing what they preach!
