About the Book

You gotta know when to hold ’em.
Know when to fold ’em.
Know when to walk away.
Know when to run.
– Kenny Rogers

There’s a good reason why The Gambler has been in my head ever since I started writing this book. After all, a well-behaved blogger is smart like that: knowing just what to do, when. I must confess, when it comes to blogging, I haven’t always known when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em. I haven’t always balanced blogging and the-rest-of-life, and at times I’ve paid the price. But I’m happy to say that, after years of blogging, I’ve picked up on some tips that I’ve just got to share with you.

Blogger Behave will help you to blog better

More than that, it will get you lovin’ your blog and your life like never before.
