I had a marriage blog called I Love This Husband & Wife Stuff: 365 things I love about being married. When I got to the 365th thing, I decided to stop. The blog is still online but I am no longer adding posts.
I wanted some physical record of the blog so I made it into a book on Blog2Print. It is a personal keepsake. But I also wanted to make it into a book to sell on Amazon.
I have been working on this book for a few months. Whereas writing the blog was mostly fun and exciting, turning the blog into a book is tedious and requires discipline. I still want to do it but when I sit down to work on it it’s just not fun. And, I like to have fun!
I guess that’s where commitment and hard work come in. Just like marriage isn’t always fun, when you want to do something important or good, you have to push though the challenges and difficulties.
There is no substitute for hard work.
Thomas A. Edison
So, that’s where I am now. I have about 127 pages of text from the blog and I’m about a third of the way through. Have you converted a blog into a book? Are you considering it? If you have any tips or encouragement you’d like to share I’d appreciate it. Thanks.
