What´s more popular than Tumblr? This microblogging site has taken the Web by storm since its founding in 2007. Not much can top it when it comes to capturing its fans´ imaginations, except for perhaps its creator, David Karp. Karp developed Tumblr after he tried to start a blog and found the process daunting. With most platforms a blogger faces a huge, empty text box that begs to be filled with words. It was intimidating for a guy who´d never blogged before. Karp had the idea for tumblelogging - creating short blog posts - and built Tumblr as a platform. It lets users easily post both text and images, making Tumblr highly visual and expressive. Creating a different way to blog came naturally to Karp, who never does things by the book. At 15 he dropped out of school. At 17 he moved to Tokyo, holing up with a computer and fine-tuning his tech skills. He returned to the states to build a business - but to do that, he stretched the truth. He used a deep voice on the phone with potential clients so they wouldn´t guess how young he was. He didn´t tell anyone how little experience he had. Yet people could see he had a good thing going with Tumblr. The company quickly found support and grew into what it is today: a groundbreaking site for connection and creation. And as the mastermind behind it, Karp is sure to remain a figure to watch. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lrnr/000003/bk_lrnr_000003_sample.mp3.

Halden Zimmerman, a successful blogger with a wealth of professional experience in mechanical engineering and corporate leadership, discusses the methods and techniques aspiring bloggers can apply as they seek to achieve long-term financial security through their blogging career. With the release of Halden Zimmermann´s Guide to High-Impact Blogs for Life-Changing Income, beginner and veteran bloggers alike are able to benefit from the unique and data-driven approach developed by Mr. Zimmerman with the explicit goal of creating a stable source of life-changing income. Unlike other blogging guides and programs, Mr. Zimmerman´s ´´high-impact´´ approach is based on the concept that increased income cannot be truly life changing if the income increase comes with greater responsibilities or increased demands on time. The goal of high-impact blogging is to generate a significant source of income that only requires an initial investment of time during the planning and implementation stages. Once the blog debuts and begins to earn income, an effective high-impact blog will consistently generate revenue without demanding a continued time commitment. Through practical advice and personal insight gleaned from his first-hand experience as a blogger, Mr. Zimmerman espouses a step-by-step approach that begins with the pre-planning stages and concludes with the explanation of several strategies for expansion to platforms beyond blogging. Detailed explanations of commonly overlooked technical aspects abound, and Mr. Zimmerman outlines a strategy that clearly values the establishment of a strong foundation based on a thorough planning process. The attention to detail recommended by Mr. Zimmerman throughout the planning stages is critical for bloggers seeking to create a passive source of income through their blogging platform. 1.

Luke Weil gives listeners an up-close look at the strategies he has used to generate such immense success as a blogger. After starting off with just a small blog and no clear monetization strategy, Weil´s blog became such a sensation that he was able to make a career out of the platform he created merely as a hobby. Even though his initial success came almost entirely by accident, Weil has since created a host of other wildly successful blogs while consulting countless others on how to generate significant streams of revenue through blogging. In his book, Luke Weil´s How to Monetize a Small Blog, Weil takes the listener through the various options available to bloggers and explains how to best determine the right choice for a specific blog. Taking a nuanced approach that offers a complete view of every available monetization strategy, Weil´s book provides listeners with all of the insight they could possibly need to make informed decisions regarding the development of an overarching monetization strategy. An especially valuable book for beginning bloggers, Weil´s explanations are clear and concise so listeners who may be largely unfamiliar with the world of blogging will feel quite confident as they make their first forays into the valuable online platform. Unafraid to admit the mistakes he has made during his career as a blogger, Weil´s self-deprecating tone belies the colossal success he has enjoyed while writing about subjects he so thoroughly enjoys. In his book, Weil explains how he learned from his initial mistakes and offers advice to listeners regarding how to avoid those mistakes and how to bounce back after any possible misstep. Weil emphasizes the importance of consistently producing quality content and offering something of value to listeners, so his book offers valuable insight regarding the appropriate use of monetization strategies while maintaining a clear commitment to loyal listeners. 1.
