Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett have published a book about how to make money blogging: ProBlogger Book — Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income.

I first met Darren at SxSW in Austin in March on the Chitika/ProBlogger Beer Bus and at the b5 Blog Network Camp. Darren and Chris are both full-time blog publishers and know their stuff. If you’re interested in making money from blogs, you should seriously consider buying this book.

The book is fairly concise, at only 220 pages you can read it in a weekend in your spare time. It is filled with the same type of useful information you’d find on Darren’s blog, ProBlogger.net.

Among the tips are examples of successful blogs and things they do to get to and stay at the top of their niche. It covers everything from getting started to the best ways to monetize your blog. Whether you can install WordPress from a shell prompt or have never even heard of Blogger, you’ll find the book useful.
