The Journey to Your Book Might Be Best Through Blog Way

Send to Kindle

When I began my blog, Color Your Life Happy, several years ago, I wanted to share ideas on creating success, abundance and inner joy. I had just retired and had loads of ideas and energy. While I had a plan in the back of my head to one day write a book, I did not know at first that this blog would become my book.

Writing a blog first and turning it into a book is not that unusual. Many authors report having taken that path. After all, as you share your ideas and build your followers in your blog, you are gathering material, a platform and confidence in your writing.

You may be thinking this is a good idea and yet not know how to get started. How about joining others who are blogging at the same time and get the encouragement and support at the same time?  ” There is strength in numbers”  may be a cliche, but it’s true all the same.

That’s exactly why Michelle Shaeffer and Michele Scism are hosting the Ultimate Blog Challenge that starts today.

You can participate in this 30 day challenge even if you don’t have a blog yet, but are eager to start one. The rules are at http://ultimateblogchallenge.com/faq/

Why is now the perfect time to start or revive your blog?

I’m glad you asked.

By participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge, you are going to get benefits you can’t get from working on your blog alone.

  • accountability and motivation (you know you need both of these to succeed)
  • visibility (your business can only grow when you come out of hiding)
  • connections with other bloggers and attract potential clients
  • a showcase for your expertise

Even if you are unsure about what to write, you’ll get loads of help with that too. As a matter of fact, Michelle and Michele have already prepared video tutorials to walk you through the essentials.

In addition, they are going to give you idea starters every day of the 30 day challenge.

At the end of 30 days do you know what you’ll have?

With 30 blog posts you will the makings of a book, ebook, a special report, an audio and many other possible products.

Who are these extraordinary hosts?

  1. I sure hope by the end of 30 days I have a decent theme or direction in my 30 posts that I can use as the foundation of a product. I guess that takes some planning!

    Looking forward to being in the challenge with you.

    • Hi Gwen,

      I like the look and goals of your blog. You can meet the challenge by planning, but more importantly by just doing.
      Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to your return visit.

  2. A blog can be useful in a number of ways. Pamela Slim of Escape from Cubicle Nation built a company from her blog. Seth Godin says that anyone looking to create their voice in the world should start with a blog. This is indeed a wonderful opportunity to help us all whether by getting started, getting consistent or just getting together… Looking forward to your posts and learning from you. I will be checking out some of your recommended sites as well. Love Liz Strauss… On to Day 2!

    • Hi Kathi,

      Thanks for stopping by. Seth Godin is one of the sanest voices in publishing and communication today. Glad you like the sites I recommend. I keep running across great ones.
