If you don’t already know it, Lorelle of the “Lorelle on WordPress” fame has recently released her own book, entitled “Blogging Tips: What Bloggers Won’t Tell You About Blogging”.

So, how do I get a copy of the book?

The book is available at Blog Herald but you can also purchase it directly from the publisher, SplashPress, though there is no price difference. According to Lorelle:

This print was a short run only and when supplies run out, the price will be going up, and then distribution to bookstores will be considered. Currently, it’s only available online, which makes it easy and you don’t have to pay the markup bookstores charge. We’re working to keep this as affordable as possible.

I will be posting excerpt chapters from the book on my blog so you can get a feel for what is in there. The first one is Blogging Tips Book: Blog Branding and Identity. I’ll have another one next week.

Blogging Tips costs USD 12.95 each — excluding an additional USD 3 and USD 12 for shipping and handling within the US and everywhere else, respectively. Ouh yeah, if you order before this Friday (June 1st), she will autograph your copy! :)

And if I don’t have a PayPal account or a credit card?

OK.. If you don’t have a PayPal account or a credit card (I don’t blame you, I don’t have a credit card either), I can help you with it. I’ll pay from my PayPal account on your behalf, and you pay me back in Malaysian Ringgits, how’s that? So according to this currency exchange tool, USD 24.95 is equivalent to RM 84.53.


… if you haven’t heard of Lorelle, it’s high time you get out of your comfortable blogging zone and read and blog-hop more. She is a professional writer (she’s been blogging for almost 15-freaking-years, when you were still wearing napkins) and the author of Lorelle on WordPress, a popular technical blog on WordPress and blogging. She is also the author of Taking Your Camera on the Road, one of the first personal websites on the Internet, featuring over a thousand articles on travel, nature photography, and life on the road, and Lorelle’s Family History, a genealogy blog. Plus, she is also a columnist for the Blog Herald and guest-blogs and writes for many blogs, e-zines, websites, and print publications. She travels extensively, as a web consultant and public speaker, and can often be found in airports, truck stops, outside shops, and prowling your neighborhood looking for an open WiFi connection to send off her next blog post.

Eh, what are you waiting for??!
