Technical Blogging: Turn Your Expertise into a Remarkable Online Presence is now available in beta. This first beta includes about 200 of the estimated total 250 pages. Most of the information you need to know is already included in the existing chapters.
Early feedback has been great and helped shape the book. The reception by early readers and reviewers has been nothing short of incredible. Here is one:
My career got a huge boost when I got serious about blogging, two years ago. So I’m in absolute awe at this amazing book, going above and beyond the best advice I’ve ever heard on the subject. I wish I would have read this two years ago, as I had to learn this the hard way. Honestly, this book has got me inspired to get back to writing more.

I’m pretty confident, humbly, that you’ll love it. It provides you with all the info you really need to succeed with your own blog, and it does so in an organized manner that will get you to plan, build, promote, benefit from, and grow your own blog.
While useful to a general audience, the book was specifically written for developers and technically minded entrepreneurs (e.g., hackers and founders). Above all, it aims to be a practical book packed with actionable advice, and not your typical fluffy book about blogging.
You can buy the beta here, and please let me know what you think about it once you get around to read it. I’m very excited to be able to share the fruits of much hard work that took most of my evenings and weekends for the past few months.
