Duncan Riley> Perhaps I’m out of touch with the book market, perhaps I’m not, but a new book on blogging; Business Blogs: A Practical Guide from Bill Ives, Ph.D., and Amanda G. Watlington hits the selves at an incredible $99.
According to the media release:
“The first is a 220 page guidebook that covers the ‘€œwhat’€? and ‘€œhow’€? of blogging in clear, accessible language. The second part includes 290 pages of interview notes drawing on the blogging experiences of 70 bloggers. It includes both ‘€œA-list’€? bloggers who have built broad readership and individuals who have intentionally built small, select but highly interconnected communities with whom they exchange information via the Web. The volume includes over 700 links and 100 illustrations.”
The book is said to include advice from 70 bloggers, including “A-list” bloggers, and yet neither the media release nor page for the book say who they are. Who ever they are though you’d hope that they’d be getting a cut. Now either I’m in the wrong business, or this is ridiculously over priced, are books on blogging entitled to get such a massive mark-up?
