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.

How to Get a Book Contract in 6 Months (with a Blog)

How to Get a Book Contract in 6 Months (with a Blog) | Prionomy | Scoop.it

You can publish a book.

 

And you can do it much sooner than you think, actually.

 

How do you do this? Not by wasting years writing articles or obsessing over writer’s conferences and book proposals.

 

All you need is a blog.

 

No other activity (including years of freelance writing) has brought me closer to my dream of publishing a book than blogging. It took me about six months to get a book contract with a publisher.
And you can do the same...
