If you have a story to tell, you may want to consider writing a blog. Blogging is a way for you to show your readers and potential publishers that you have something to say, and it can help you hone your writing skills. It also can provide a platform for a book deal.
There are several ways you can start blogging. Some people use blogs as personal journals. Others use them to share important information. You can even run a blog with a regular web hosting service.
If you want to write a blog that will eventually turn into a book, you should focus on a specific topic or theme. You can do this by making an effort to be creative and think about what your audience will enjoy. This will help you create a fan base. You might even be able to sell your final product to this audience.
Some authors have used their blogs to pitch a nonfiction book. Historical fiction writers can share their research on their blogs. They might pitch their novel to publishers and become an expert on a certain aspect of history. If they are lucky, they will land a book deal.
If you want to publish a book, you should get a copy of How to Blog a Book. It offers tips on how to publish a book and is available in digital and paperback formats. It was released in early May 2012. The book includes twice as much content as a typical blog and is recommended for writers interested in publishing a book.
