It depends on what you want to do with your blog. If you're interested in readership, and all that comes with it: "Clear Blogging" is a decent tome. At the rate I purchase books, it's not surprising that I've bought a few. And just as readily discarded them. "Clear Blogging" survives in my book pile simply because I haven't gotten around to tossing it. (Actually, donating to the local library!) They're all so similar you actually find yourself peering at the front cover to check if you're reading what you think you're reading. And not something you've read before...

It all depends on what you want to do with your blog. I ignore just about every piece of advice provided in the books; but that's just me. :-) I've never come across a book where the author says "write for yourself". They always say "write for your audience". Which strikes me as profoundly wrong.
