  1. Hi Robin,
    Reading your book ‘Blogging for writers’ and started my Blog. I have one question though.
    Images – do I always have to use mine? Are most images that I find on the internet free to use in a blog?
    Your thoughts on this are much appreciated.
    Thank you

    1. Hello Heike, thanks for buying the book! If you look at Chap 5 – the power of images (I think it’s pages 76-77) I say a bit about this, also under ‘copyright’ in the chapter 11. In the Resources section I also list some image sources. Hope that helps.

  2. Robin,
    I have been reading Blogging for Creatives and it has been very helpful. You do an excellent job providing great content in a way that is easy to digest. Thanks.

  3. Hi Robin. I’ve your book blogging for creative that I am using to help me build a new WordPress self hosted website with blog to replace my old Free passion4art.com artist site and blogspot.
    I’m so glad I bought your book it’s been very helpful.

  4. I’m enjoying Blogging for Writers. I’m still working through Ch 1 and developing a blogging plan. Thanks for providing some ways to think about this.
    On another note, I wonder if you’ve thought about doing a similar book for non-fiction writers, of which I’m one. Not that the concerns of non-fiction writers are night and day different, but there’s a different spin on it, and it’s more idea oriented tan narrative oriented. For example, I would like to see some ideas about offline organization of resources that feed into blog posts as they develop; I’ve re-worked my scheme for this four or five times and am not done yet.

    1. Hi Michael, thank you and I’m glad you’re finding the book helpful. As regards a book aimed at non-fiction writers specifically, that would be up to the publishers – we are exploring more ideas all the time so I’ll put it in the mix. All the best!

  5. Hi Robin — I’ve tried blogging a couple of times and lost interest. I have a new focus now, and am trying again on Blogger. I bought your book “Blogging for Creatives” and it’s been very helpful. I need more info about using Blogger, and don’t know where to look. Can you suggest something?

    1. Hi – have you explored Blogger Help? You can access it from the ‘settings’ cog on the top right of your Blogger dashboard. It’s probably the best place to begin. Thanks for buying the book, I hope you manage to get back into blogging and wish you all the best with it.

  6. Thank you for writing and publishing Blogging For Creatives.
    As I embark on starting a blog, I have four other highly recommended blogging books on my night stand. I’ve read from all of them, but yours is the one I keep coming back to.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing such a clear and beautiful book.

  7. I just read your Blogging for Creatives book and loved it!!!! So inspired! I wrote my first post in a while yesterday and the company I mentioned offered to send me a free product a month for my fashion line. So it’s working already and I wasn’t even trying to get free stuff! Check out my site at rudyludy.com
    I will definitely be getting your new twitter books as I have no idea how to use twitter. Thank you!

    1. Hi Claire! Thanks so much for your kind words. I’m pleased you found ‘Blogging for Creatives’ useful. I’m in discussions with the publishers about an update, as the book is a few years old now, and it would be nice to revisit the featured blogs for updates on how they’re doing… we’ll see! Your site is great, love the kiddies’ clothing – best of luck with it all, and with Twitter – do grab the ebooks, they are packed with tips 🙂 All the best, Robin x
