Celebrating Small Wins Every Day: Startup Blogging Hit Number 15 On Amazon!

My first book made it into the Top 100 in Amazon’s Kindle Store

It changes by the hour and I’m playing the long game but celebrating the fact my first book, Startup Blogging: Validate A Business Idea and Build Your Audience, made it to Number 15 this week in the Top 100 under the Blogging and Blogs book category in Amazon’s Kindle Store!

I also received my first review – I’m not related to them by blood and I didn’t pay them for it, I swear. 📚

This book is based on my journey as a blogger, writer, founder and parent to date. It aims to help current and aspiring creatives, freelancers, bloggers, flexible workers, business owners and side hustlers with limited time.

I sincerely hope it helps inspire you to overcome any fears of failure (encouraging you to embrace failing forward instead), showing up as you are (because you’re never ‘too much’ of anything for the right type of person/your ideal customer) and create the magic you’d like to see in the world (because we need your ideas out of your head and brought to life!) ✨

It’s intended to help you solve real problems, for real people and focuses on:
– designing a blog around your values, interests and time commitments;
– creating content, sharing your ideas and seeking feedback; and
– defining what you offer, your ideal customer and launching your Minimum Viable Product (MVP).

Startup Blogging: Validate A Business Idea and Build Your Audience contains links to resources and templates to help you work through the exercises and action items mentioned in the book.

Preview the Startup Blogging book’s first few pages for free online

You can preview the Introduction and Chapter 1 using the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the Amazon website and it’s available in both eBook and paperback formats (links in my bio). If you don’t have a Kindle or if you do but it no longer works (like mine), you can download their free Kindle App for Apple or Android and read it on your device.

The eBook launch price on Amazon is $2.99 USD* until May 24, 2020 then it goes up to $5.99 USD*. If you have a Kindle Unlimited Membership then I believe you can grab a copy for free at the moment. Or you can grab the paperback version on Amazon for $9.99 USD* (set to remain at $10.99 CAD* for 🇨🇦 readers).

By the end of this book, you’ll have a clear idea of:
– what themes your blog will focus on;
– how and when you’ll create original content;
– who your ideal customer is and how you’ll reach them; and
– what solution you’ll offer, launch and test.

Happy reading and do let me know if you have any questions about the book! 📚

Feedback on Startup Blogging:

Part of the contents of this book were originally created and delivered by me as a conference workshop for an event in 2019.

The content has been carefully edited to focus on making it more digestible and actionable, encouraging you to startup blogging now and test your ideas over the coming months.

“I liked that the focus was on organic development of community and ideas instead of just social media marketing. I also like the periodic questions to consider what I wanted to do with the information.”

“Enjoyed the ideas for how to share your message or find out what resonates with people.”

“I love Amy’s generosity with sharing her knowledge and experience. Really great session.”

“Lots of useful ideas for starting and growing an audience.”

“(I enjoyed) the personal experiences of the presenter, interaction with audience, resource materials and focus on doing things for passion rather than just for money.”

“The topic is very interesting and well presented.”

“Very inspiring.”
