Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) October 10, 2007
Well-known blog designers Joelle Reeder & Kathy Scoleri, who make their living through their award winning Moxie Design Studio (http://www.moxiedesignstudios.com), have authored a new book titled The IT Girl's Guide to Blogging with Moxie (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.; October 2007; $24.99). Both are members of BlogHer and have been featured speakers at the popular blogging conference at South by Southwest (SXSW).
In three distinct parts, The It Girl's Guide to Blogging helps readers:
-learn the technology skills needed to create a blog
-live with the technology (maintain their Web sites, bring in advanced features like RSS, add in podcasts and photos, and manage personal versus work-related blogs)
-and love their new hobby: designing awe-inspiring pages that grab readers eyes, creating their own branded Web site, and writing and syndicating content readers really want.
Everyone from parents, pundits, soldiers and small business owners, to crafters and culinary connoisseurs are using blogs as personal Web sites and/or a means of communicating information. According to Technorati, there are now over 51 million current bloggers and that number is doubling every six months. The community at Blogher.org, a popular site for female bloggers, boasts over 5600 members and holds a yearly conference that attracts thousands of attendees.
Women make up about half of all Internet users and bloggers and they're using blogs to promote their businesses, keep up their writing and Web dev skills, and to share knowledge on topics as diverse as knitting and fertility, to Java programming and Google analytics. Now, in the first ever tech reference for women by women, learn how being a geek really can be chic.
