My good pal William Gallagher has written a new book about blogging. How to do it, why do it, all of that good stuff. There is no better man to write a book like this and, if you want to blog or blog better (and who doesn’t?) you should get hold of it.
It’s out today. That’s a photo of the cover right there. I kid you not. He writes a little about this book on his blog today, which is appropriate and ironic all at the same time. Here’s a link to that post:
But get this: just because I (allegedly) made some minuscule contribution to this book, William says I can actually offer you a 40% discount on it. This is fun for me because I’ve never had an offer to offer before. I feel quite giddy and may have to sit down for a spell.
Wait, there’s a catch. I can only offer this offer if I also include this quote from him.
“Ken’s weekly blog is the reason I got into blogging regularly and it’s the reason I wrote this book. I want to write like he does and I love that I got him to talk to us about what exactly he does.”
Bah. There’s always something. He’s being too kind, of course. He can’t help it. It’s in his nature
You can buy the paperback and kindle editions at Amazon http://bit.ly/amazon-uk-blogging-book but he’s also done a special PDF edition and, because I’m in it, you can have it for 40% off. Use the discount code “ken” at http://bit.ly/blogging-book
An offer… can you believe it?
William is well worth reading. He knows his stuff. He has spent a lot of time in the world of professional writing and he’s picked up a lot along the way. It’s a good reason to read his latest book.
But, as well as a good reason, there is also a great reason. William is just a great guy. He is driven to write, something we have in common, and he approaches everything he does with a totally original combination of warmth, humour, attention to detail, and solid unwavering backbone. William is the writer we should be, taking joy and encouragement from his successes while shrugging off whatever setbacks may arise and soldiering on regardless.
He is also generous to a fault, as can be witnessed from the ludicrously kind thing he made me type above.
I wish William every success with his new book. I’ve been blogging for quite a while now and I get all of the fulfillment, hatred, frustration, creativity, companionship, loneliness, inspiration, pain and joy that I could wish for from doing it.
Go on, William, show us how it’s done.
