#1 Permission Marketing by Seth Godin

The theme throughout the book is turning away from traditional forms of interruption marketing and instead focusing on permission marketing - which is incredibly relevant to blogging. If you want to build an email list (like most bloggers), it's important to create content that serves the reader, not the writer. If your blog solves reader's problems, or adds value in some other form, getting permission to send a newsletter, or connect on social media, becomes less a sales pitch and more an opportunity for readers.

#17 Influencer by Brittany Hennessy

This book is fantastic.  She not only lays out how to start monetizing your blog, she gives advice on how to reach out to brands, and reminders on how to be professional. In addition to this there are tidbits from famous bloggers saying how they do things now and how they would have done things if they were getting started today.  It's the most guide of a guidebook on becoming an influencer that I've seen and I do a lot of reading!

#18 Anonymous Lawyer by Jeremy Blachman

Book is in blog format so it shows the strengths and weaknesses of a blog. It's funny and interesting but in the end it's not satisfying because it's not real. Blogging changed to become a format where people insist on reality. So, the book shows you how to tell a great story via blog format but also helps you realize that you must give facts and or true information for the blog to be successful. I say this because the book was not a success and did not jump start the author's career as a writer as expected.

#19 The Tall Lady With the Iceberg by Anne Miller

“A picture is worth a thousand words,” they say. But what if you cannot rely on photos or videos to paint the picture, just words? Anne Miller has the answer - use metaphors. In this short but exciting book, the author explains how each and every one of us can become better writers and sellers by incorporating metaphors in our content. Why? Because metaphors are much more visual and active, so our minds can soak in the information quicker and more effortlessly. So the next time you write an article, remember to incorporate some metaphors. If you do, your content will explode in a thousand colours like the sky on the New Year’s night.
