Why publish a book for "beginners"?

After looking back through the 500+ posts here on Blogger Buster, I realised there was very little information for those completely new to the platform. Blogger's help site is very extensive, yet there is no single page or downloadable file available to help those who have just started (or would like to begin using) this service.

So I decided to put a little time into explaining the very basics of using Blogger in much the same way as I explain more complicated tutorials on this site - using step-by-step instructions and helpful screenshots. I hope this ebook will be useful for those starting their first blog with Blogger, and those who may not have used the platform in a while and are unfamiliar with the new Blogger interface.

The PDF version of this ebook will always remain free to download here on Blogger Buster, though (hopefully) it will soon be available in other formats for which there may be a small fee. 

I'm also in the process of writing two more books about Blogger (details to be released soon) and feel it's in my best interests to retain copyright of this book in case sections are referenced in these future works.
