Certain books cause me to rethink what I'm doing blogging. Oftentimes, it's the books that force me to think about purpose and goals in connection with my blog.
That's what Bryan Allain has done to me this past week as I read Community Wins: 21 Thoughts on Building a Thriving Online Tribe. He's also the author of 21 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo. I read that one as well and it gives good insight. But Community Wins goes further by bring practical action steps for creators of all sorts of tribes.
In fact, this book would be more aptly called a workbook. Because that is what it is. Bryan tackles everything from understanding your purpose and defining your goals to networking online and offline. That does still happen, ya know.
Each short chapter comes with an exercise. Trust me, if you want the book to make a difference, do the exercises. Otherwise you'll be left seeing other people create while following these very do-able steps.
Here's the best news. You can get this book for free on Amazon starting tomorrow until the end of the week. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009VIKF4S/
