E-books have been the main attractions of Amazon and many global giants for years. Customers are attracted to the outlandishly low prices, and the dream opportunity of becoming an e-book writer. However, many bloggers are switching to blog books, a blog series in which individual posts are arranged to tell a story. This new trend is increasing in popularity as it does not require the same precepts as an e-book or a novel. It is a creative writer’s dream format.
This format is incredibly fast paced, so to a degree the writer is not compelled to emphasize specific details. Blog books are similar to regular blogs because the readers are drawn to short, yet compelling entries. Attempting to give a long description of a character’s dress is not pragmatic in a blog post. However, the characters within this blog format must be well-defined and connect to a specified audience.
Blog books may render the traditional e-book obsolete if bloggers continue to adopt this method. Just think about it! There are many talented bloggers who are willing to publicize creative content without receiving any compensation from their readers. Avid readers can bookmark their favorite blogs and receive emails when another post is generated.
Reading a blog is convenient, possibly making it the optimum part of a daily routine for those who enjoy reading while drinking their morning coffee, or while on a lunch break at work. It’s free and there is constant mystery as to what content the author will post next.
Is there a financial market for blog books? People will pay for anything online. For example, there are programs such as Buddy Press, sponsored by Word Press, that enable bloggers to create unique social networks. Some networks require paid membership as a prerequisite of reading blog posts, participating in group chatter, and building connections surrounding a particular blog book. It is a phenomenal idea!
Additionally, blog books can be marketed as an advertising tool for a newly released e-book. This idea may sound similar to regular blog marketing, but instead of blogging about the writing process, post a chapter of the most thrilling parts of the e-book. Allow the audience a glimpse into the writer’s world and the characters’ personalities.
Highlight the characters who are most likely to peak an interest. When the last portion of the chosen chapter is posted, the readers will be anxious for more, guaranteeing successful sales when the e-book is published.
