Review: Google Blogger For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech))

User Review  - Joanne - Goodreads

probably a good book for the absolute beginner but I didn't learn anything that I hadn't already figured out myself just by playing around with the blogger site. In fact the help I was looking for wasn't in the book and I had to just play around with the settings. Read full review

Review: Google Blogger For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech))

User Review  - Catherine Coffman - Goodreads

VERY basic. It wasn't particularly useful for anyone who's already created a Blogger account. But, as usual with the Dummies books, the instructions are super clear, and there's a healthy dose of humor in the book. Read full review
