Fashion 2.0 Blogging Your Way to the Front Row & Summer Soiree

On a hot sticky New York Wednesday night I found myself on a cool and chic rooftop bar, the Skyroom, for a Summer Soiree and a book release celebration by Yuli Ziv. Yuli Ziv is the founder and owner of Style Coalition and in charge of the meet-up group: Fashion 2.0. She now has put author on her resume as well. She just release her very first book called: Fashion 2.0: Blogging Your Way to the Front Row.

Unlike so many other blogging books out there this isn't about how to write a blog or even how to start a blog this is about how to turn your blog into something bigger-- making money from it and making it your career. I'm positive (since I know a few of you personally) there are other bloggers out there like me that want to make this their living and sometimes getting there is the hard part. I often sometimes get myself down, maybe not give up but it gets hard and lonely sometimes. Sometimes we see stats or down or we aren't getting the comments we want and we get discouraged. Well this book is all about reminding you that everything takes time and management. If something isn't working...change it. Keep in my that your blog is your business. I've only just started the book but I feel the wheels turning in my head about my own blog. If you want to turn your blog into your business I HIGHLY suggest you to go grab this book, a highlight, note pad, and pen. This book will keep you on your toes and thinking about your own blog!
