Book Reviews


“The checklist that ends each chapter ties together the goal, learnings and actions so you can easily identify what you’ve learned, and anything you need to research further. Annabel’s skills in web design and copywriting give this ebook a richness that others lack.”

The Spring Blog

“It’s a great mix of creative and technical advice, all of it very accessible and practical.”

The ClickStarter

“Successful Blogging in 12 Simple Steps offers beginner bloggers a hype-free and practical guide on starting and growing a successful blog and audience, in an easy to understand, jargon-free self-study course.”

Brandi-Ann Uyemura

“This is the type of book that I’m going to read more than once. It provides an overview of everything I need to know to become a successful blogger in easy to read tidbits that I can use as a resource now and again.”


“Where was this e-book three years ago when I started blogging? When I started blogging I literally dove straight in and that works… up to a point!!! But after reading this book I see that there are a lot of little tweaks that I can perform and changes here and there that would make my blog a better blog.”

Problogging Success

“I would buy this book just for the bonus chapter on Committing to blogging and staying motivated.”

Blog Income for Women

“The course is divided into 12 easy steps to take you from blogging ingénue to blogging brilliance. I think the best thing about Annabel’s course is the simplicity. It’s so easy to get caught up on a lot of complicated technical stuff on the internet, but Annabel makes it much easier to understand and therefore it’s much easier for you to get results.”

Ricardo Bueno

“If you’re a small business blogger, a solo-preneur, a freelancer trying to build your business online, this book is just for you. It’s a step-by-step guide for building your blog, generating purposeful content, and engaging your readers to generate business. Each chapter is riddled with How To’s, Action Steps and Check-Lists to make sure that you’re doing everything right.”

Get Paid to Write Online

“Notice how I mentioned experienced bloggers? That’s because I think we can gain something from this blog too. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I started my first blog, I didn’t know enough about blogging to approach it in a systematic way. I know a lot more now, but it will be interesting to use Annabel’s lists to check my progress when I start my next blog.

Finally, all bloggers can benefit from Annabel’s tips on using guest blogging to promote their blogs and the extensive list of tools and resources at the end. To add to the value, there’s a great list of tools and resources at the end.”
