  • Hi Tiffany, we have several blogging books in For Dummies. “Professional Blogging”, “Mom Blogging”, and WordPress among them. Suggest you go to the online retailer of your choice and search “blogging for dummies” and see which one is right for you.

    For Dummies books are so helpful. They make things seem so simple! We have so many and have used them for our son for some of the math classes he has had. We also have many others! The party prizes look amazing! Especially the baking one!

  • Looks like a cool party! LOVE the wine prize and of course the GRAND PRIZE! =) You host the BEST Twitter Parties!

  • I also have a number of For Dummies titles on my bookshelf. Initially it was software or technology. I’ve broadened my topics to include Philosophy, Mandarin Chinese, Chess, Guitars, and some wonderful cooking and personal finance books, just to name a few. I’d love to have a completely yellow and black bookcase!
