There are some things that just have to be part of a blog. Good content is obviously the most important aspect. In addition to that, however, there are some elements that make a blog successful, easy to read and will help you achieve your goals faster.

In this post, I'll go through some elements I consider essential to a blog.

Yesterday, the first commercial Joomlablogger e-book was released. Blogging with Joomla!® is a 287 page e-book (delivered as a downloadable PDF, which covers a lot of information on how to blog with our favorite CMS.

Even if the book is written with a focus on blogging, the information can be used by anyone who wants to improve how they build Joomla sites.

I have worked on the book for around a year, so I'm pleased to report that the feedback has been positive so far. It seems people like the information and that they learn from it.

My friend over at Joomla Bamboo, Anthony Olsen, wrote this after reading through the e-book:

Kristoffer Sandven is at the leading edge when it comes to using Joomla for blogging. The detail covered in his Blogging with Joomla book is simply mind-boggling, which makes it a must for new or even seasoned Joomla users.

and TJ Baker of Joomla Shack said:

There's so much information in this book it would be good resource for someone looking to build ANY type of Joomla site.  It's a great investment for anyone looking for guidance with setting up their Joomla powered blog site, written by one of Joomla's best bloggers!

Go get your copy today - it sells for only €9.95. I set the price as low possible so it would be affordable to a larger audience. It's my hope that it will inspire and help many Joomla users around the world.

I have been using Joomla as a blogging platform with great success for both my clients and myself. After having reviewed and tested countless setups and extensions this book is my way of sharing what I have learnt over the years. This knowledge can be used by anyone using Joomla, not just those who want to build a blog.

Joomla is great for any type of web site, and it's great for blogging. I have shown in practice that it is indeed possible to build a successful blog with Joomla. By adding a selection of extensions, you can extend the core package to solve anything you throw at it.

You already know Joomla and use it for other projects. That's just one of the reasons why you should use Joomla for blogging.

This book will answer all the questions you'll have when Blogging with Joomla!


blogging-joomla-illAs you know, I’m blogging with Joomla myself. I find the Joomla platform to be a really good platform for blogging. But is it right for you?

In this post I explore some reasons why I think you should use Joomla as a blogging platform and why it might be a good choice.

If you're a Joomla addict like me, it seems only natural to use Joomla as a blogging platform. I have seen some blogs about Joomla that are built with Wordpress. To me, that's quite silly. If you're writing about how to use Joomla, you should use it for blogging as well, in my opinion.
