The 15 Success Traits of Pro Bloggers – Book Review

The 15 Success Traits ImageI am over half-way through a great book right now, but I didn’t want to wait until I was finished to talk about it. The book is “The 15 Success Traits of Pro-Bloggers,” by Jonathan Milligan. It’s a fantastic resource for anyone that desires to do business online, whether you are experienced or a beginner. I am finding myself inspired and motivated to do more with my blog already.

What is so cool is that I have witnessed Jonathan doing the very things he writes about. He creates value every day, and it has made him successful. I belong to his Blogging Your Passion University which provides tons of great resources to those of us working at improving our blogs. It’s a network of like minded individuals that are regularly blessed by his great content.

Here are a few specific reasons why I am recommending this book:

It Contains Specific Step by Step Instruction. When it comes to the process of growing your blogging business, this book gives you a great road map. Jon lets you know what to expect and helps you to anticipate what needs to be done next.

He Tells the Truth. Nothing in this book is sugar coated. It is exactly what Jon has experienced. It shows his failures and his successes. It shows his triumphs in this space that have allowed him to become a Pro. Through all of the truth-telling you learn that you too can become a successful blogger when you learn from others and follow their advice.

He Writes Humbly. I have read authors that do not make you feel as though you would like to get to know them as a person. Not so with Jon. He is very real even though he has seen substantial success. This is valuable to me. I learn best from folks that are approachable. It just works better for me. It’s the kind of man that I strive to be, so I am naturally drawn to his style.

It is Motivating. When I realize that by applying just some of the strategies outlined in this book that I have a good chance of increasing my income and making a difference, it is highly motivating. It is a goal of mine to build a business that provides useful content to the world. When this is being done by folks I admire, it pushes me to work harder and do what I am capable of doing.

So here are just four reasons why I am recommending this book. When I am finished with it, I will have even more. Hopefully you will buy your own copy and begin to move your blogging business forward.
