New Release is #1 eBook on Goodreads Geeky/Techy Book List
Moving Your Blog: How to transfer your blog to your own personal domain name and server from Blogger/Blogspot or WordPress.com
On its first day as an offering on Goodreads.com, the book achieved Number 1 status in the Geeky/Techy Book List. Whether this due to insider technical wizardry on the part of the author or based on the book's genuine merits, is debatable, but at least it implies he knows what he's doing.
Perhaps the book's instant popularity has to do with its status on Amazon.com, where it's downloadable free of charge until midnight PST on September 17, 2012.
Inside, you’ll find detailed instructions on how to go from a blog hosted on a sub-domain on someone else’s service, to owning your own domain name and having complete control of your own server.
For those who are happy with their existing blog, but just want a domain name of their own, the book explains how you can keep using your existing blog, but point at it with a domain name.
The growing popularity of blogging as both a business and a pastime may also be a hint to the reason for the book's popularity.
There are almost a billion active bloggers, and more are starting every day. Most of these blogs fade into obscurity quickly, having never achieved a following, so the advice in the book is relevant to bloggers looking to maximize their online success.
More information about the book can be found on the Author's blog, Savage Lullabye.
