Content that matters

About the Book

I wrote my first ever blog post in 2015. I used Medium which was rather popular at the time and not yet hidden for the most part behind a paywall. I considered myself a casual blogger back then and I still do today; even though my audience has grown way more than I could have ever imagined, I'm making a reasonable amount of money with my blog, and I actually landed my current and previous job in large part because of my blog.

In this little book, I want to share the lessons I've learned about blogging along the way. From building an audience to analytics, engaging with people to writing; this book covers all those topics.
