Blogging for Gold by Anuj Tikku is an e-book in which you will get A to Z knowledge about blogging. Though the main aspect of this book is to dole out blogging knowledge to new or aspiring bloggers, however Anuj has also brought in social media, self-publishing, writing a book, and many other helpful topics with commendable confidence. As the title goes, ‘Blogging for Gold’, he means to say that blogging means digging gold but only a handful of people knows that to get gold one has to work hard while having a good amount of patience. Blogging can give you money and fame and an office-free life, but the route to that glory isn’t that easy you might have thought-out.

How to write, how to promote, how to choose a niche, and all things that matters most in shaping a blogger’s career, are presented well in the book with lucid and easy to understand language. The book has sixty short chapters; it means you can refer any chapter in the times of guidance. It could have been better if the author has segmented the content of the book into parts like, blogging tips, social media, self-publishing and writing and so on.
