Book Review - The Bloggers Survival Guide – Lexie Lane & Becky McNeer

Saturday, June 29, 2013

I really really wish this had been published, or maybe it was and I just didn’t know about it, when I first started blogging around 2 years ago!! I knew nothing and if it wasn’t for the person who helped me set up my site (Sheri Carpenter) I probably would not be blogging today! I drove poor Sheri crazy with questions—how she put up with me I will never know.

This how to manual takes you from the set-up to the how to make money from your blog. Below I have copied the Chapter headings only—under each of these headings you will find a wealth of information. I paid particular attention to Days 3, 6 and 7!! You do not need to read this at one time. I suggest you take it slowly (especially if you are a beginner). If you have been blogging awhile there is still information in here which can and will help you!! Need more information? Check out "The Social Media Panel, LLC."

In Lexie Lane’s Own Words

Over the past 10 years, the social media boom has created a surge of optimism among the unemployed. The internet has provided opportunities as brands hop onto the social media bandwagon, using bloggers and social networks to expand their business. The entrepreneurs grow in numbers as more people realize the growth potential in online marketing.

Entrepreneur, Lexie Lane, once a corporate diva of the mortgage industry, ventured into social media without the realization of its potential. "I had always been a small fish in the big bad ocean," she said. Now she swims along sharks who aggressively fight their way into a position of influence, while helping small businesses gain their online presence.
Lane started her adventure by blogging and talking about her experiences as a new mother. From there, she was able to create a community for other parents to gather and talk about their own experiences. Eventually, the experiences turned into questions about blogging and the things that can be done to make money so that non-working, stay-at-home moms and dads can contribute to their family income.

After 2 years of research and answering as many questions as she could, Lane knew she had to help new bloggers find their way around the world of social media. Lane connected with fellow blogger, Becky McNeer, who used social media to grow her clientele through real estate.

Lane and McNeer created a map of every point and step they took to get to a level that is most appealing to audiences and brands. Personalization is what makes blogs stand out for many websites because it provides a sense of relief for the public to know that there is personalized customer relations behind it.

The Blogger's Survival Guide, published by Wayman Publishing, became the result of an entire year's fully researched work of steps, tricks, and tips that even the most novice blogger can understand. "It's not rocket science," Lane says. "There is creativity in everyone. After you understand the reason behind all the technical stuff, the sky's the limit with what you can do with social media."

The authors of The Blogger's Survival Guide are also the founders of "The Social Media Panel, LLC." and creator of, The Voice of Parenthood, where parent bloggers unite to talk about their every day challenges as parents.

There is so much more to blogging than just writing down your ideas each morning. Resources like this are a definite boost!
