create-your-own-blog“Create Your Own Blog,” by Tris Hussey, $22 from

This book on blogging has more good tips than any other we’ve seen. Besides explaining what blogging is all about (in a word, it’s “storytelling”), “Create Your Own Blog” shows you how to create personal, business, podcasting or video blogs. We learned there’s such a thing as “podsafe” music. Go to for free music you can legally use in podcasts. The author recommends when you just want to fire off short blasts and subscribe to other people’s blasts. At Posterous, you email what you want to say, and the email can simultaneously put a picture on Flickr and Twitter. The really nice thing about this book is that if there’s an easier way to do something, the author lets you know.
