Blogging Your Business Book

If you’re going to spend so much time writing a blog for your business, why not convert that same energy into writing a book? In fact, do the two at once. Consider making your blog posts future chapters of a book to showcase your expertise and skills.  It’s not a new idea, we just hope to motivate you a bit to keep going or get started.


Start with an Outline


Start with a rough outline. It’s rough, because your readers’ feedback and comments will help shape your book. You don’t want to leave it totally up to them to decide the topics though, because you’ll lose control and it will be hard to finish the book. While a novel might work well that way, it may not work as well for a business book.


Write 500 Words a Day


After you write your outline, start writing 500 word articles each day on a topic and post them. You’ll compile those articles to make up your chapters down the road, and you may decide not to use some. It’s a win-win for you, because you still have great content for your blog. Make sure it’s search engine optimized, and you can edit it out when you’re ready to make it a book, or leave those keywords in.

Don’t worry about doing the chapters in order. You’ll worry about that when you go to compile the book. The main thing is to form the habit of writing 500 words a day and finish the book that you know you need to write for your business.  Before you know it, on a 5 day a week schedule, you’ll hit 60,000 words in 120 days, which is more than good enough for your first business book.

    I think its a good idea. I have never thought of writing a book for my business. Perhaps an ebook will do. Are you planning to write one as well? Or have you written a book for your business already?

    I have been pondering this idea for awhile now. I am trying to write a tongue-n-cheek book, but want reader feedback. I figured a blog would be a good way to get that feedback without a huge investment. Thanks for the great idea with the 500 words, not too few and not too many for people to read and get a handle on.

    This is definitely an interesting idea. I’ve been wanting to write a book (actually more of an ebook, easier and cheaper to publish) but it’s been a slow start.
