Today there was a little excitement in the Rowse House.
On returning from a morning out there was a parcel sitting on our doorstep. On opening it I found:
It’s been fun to watch many of you ordering, receiving and even reviewing the ProBlogger book – but it’s a very strange feeling to hold it in your hands after all this time of working on it.
While blogging and authoring a book have some pretty similar tasks involved in putting them together – a blog is a fairly intangible thing while our little book is… well it’s something that I can hold. I also think it’s probably going to be useful in explaining what I do to friends and family who don’t quite get it.
While I’m on the topic of the book – thanks to those who’ve been reviewing it. If you have the book I’d love to hear your thoughts on it – whether it be as a review on your blog, a review on the Amazon page for it (there’s a few up already) or just a comment below. You might just find your review quoted on the book’s home page if you review it!
update – last night was a surreal experience. My wife went to bed at 10pm as she usually does. Two hours later I went to bed expecting to find her asleep and there she was with a cup of tea reading the book! I wish I’d had my camera with me at that moment!
For those who know ‘V’ (my wife) you’ll know that she’s not really into blogging – she doesn’t read my blogs at all (apart from when I’m traveling to catch up on what I’m doing and to show my son ‘Daddy’ on my latest video). So to see her reading my book was pretty funny.
What surprised me was that she told me that after reading 4 chapters she thought she now ‘got’ blogging. Yep – after all these years of me trying to explain what I do to her I had to write a book so she’d get it!
If that doesn’t convince you to buy it – I don’t know what will!
