I know that a lot of the readers here don’t want to click through a bunch of links to learn how to do some thing. You want to do, not read! You’d prefer to have a single resource at your finger tips. If that sounds like you, consider Problogger’s eBook written especially for business owners like you.

As a business owner you don’t have the time to take the trial and error approach, you need help from someone who’s done it all before and can show you how to build a successful blog for your business, right from the start.
