From Blogger to Book Author: The 4-Step Guide

From Blogger to Book Author: The 4-Step Guide | Prionomy | Scoop.it

Some bloggers don’t start a blog to make money. They start blogging, because they have a message that the world needs to hear. In other words:

 

Some bloggers blog to get published.

 

Recently, I signed a contract with a book publisher. I had always hoped to one day publish a book, but I never thought it would happen in a few months.

 

What made this possible? In a word: blogging.

If you want to go from blogger to book author, you’ll need to do a few things. But the pay-off can be significant.

 

Why you should publish a book

 

With the rising popularity of ebooks and self-publishing, why should you go with a traditional publisher?

 

Why even write a book at all? Doesn’t a blog suffice?...

Hi Chuck, It's a question I am often asked me and..., I do not have a definitive answer on this. I, for one, a Baby-Bommer and I think it is not related to generation, but to humanity in general. Everyone would like always appear in the best light possible, which does not always favor the authenticity. I also think that the social media demonstrate even better the malaise of our society and the lack of commitment of most people on this earth!

Thanks for the response.
Because of realistic parents, my siblings and I were never directed to operate to Please Others, rather be sure we were satisfied with our behavior.
Because, if I am on the right track, it is easier to share Abundance with others.
Self-Interest is different than Selfishness.
I bring up this point to reflect on the fact many have Stories of Benefit to share and if they focused on their personal "greatness" it would be easier to get the Job done.

Yes Chuck, I see and I know that each generation change. Sometimes in a good sense and sometimes on a worse way... that's life! Indeed, when people make personal work, it is easier to do something constructive with them, but I also know that for many people, it's only bla bla and serves no purpose. What makes me say that we must choose the world around us. Have a great weekend.

The Future of Journalism

The Future of Journalism | Prionomy | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Ross Dawson for The Future of Journalism blog. Ross is one of my trusted sources and he continues to shed light on the future of journalism.

 

My commentary:

 

I see clear parallels between journalists and content curators and believe these are at least partly demonstrated by the points I have chosen to quote and particularly the smaller portions I bolded. I look forward to clear and growing collaborations . We have much to learn from each other.

 

Ross also points out the trend towards personalized and local news delivery and suggests that journalists will need to understand how social curation works. And for me, this is the key to the overlap between the established profession of journalism and the still developing discipline of content curation.

 

Ross sets the tone by stating:

 

"There are eight aspects of news that its audience will value, be prepared to pay for, and that will provide a viable financial foundation for quality journalism in the emerging media environment."

 

The article delves into each of these.  Here's what particularly caught my attention.

 

**Timeliness is becoming ever-more important in a world ravenous for immediacy.

 

**Investigative reporting will retain a central role in society. Increasingly this will involve data analysis, and often harnessing information and insights provided by many citizens.

 

**Insight, through adding context, analysis, and synthesis to news, is where some of the greatest value lies, particularly in business and political journalism.

 

**Those who can provide this insight, be they domain experts or journalists with the requisite breadth of experience, will always have a bright future.

 

**The skills required to present information, ideas and data in a visual and highly aesthetic format will shift far closer to the heart of what it is to be a journalist.

The Future of Publishing | Jenny Diski

Unbound suggests itself as a radical move away from commercial publishing, but instead of an alternative, it’s the concentrated essence of marketing. No one is taking any risks or making a leap of faith. This is a crowdsourcing model that is as crowd-pleasing as populist publishing, but on a smaller, safer scale. Readers control what the authors can write. In the past, libraries and bookshops were places you went to to find excitement. The excitement Unbound offers is that of a horse-race with a chance to feel up your horse’s fetlocks before it runs.
