If you’ve been blogging for a while, chances are you have built a loyal crowd who attentively follows your site. A great aspect of blogging is that it can reach audiences instantly as well as regularly. Having a blog means you can always keep your following by your side with weekly posts and stories, and as authors this means constant writing to keep the blog growing. However in the other hand, blogging also makes a lot of valuable content free of charge but also hidden under millions of web pages that circulate across the internet. Some especially valuable content maybe coming from your site, yet it does not rank or reach as many people as you believe it could reach and help.
But what would happen, if you could make a book out of your blog content? Perhaps even turning your whole blog into a book? Then you could further expand your market’s reach and depending how successful or useful the book becomes,it may even generate a small fortune. When it comes to making your blog into a book, there are a handful of ways to go about it.
Top Tools For Turning A Blog Into A Book
- Blurb.Com – One of the first software invented to serve this unique purpose. Blurb integrates with the most popular blogging platforms and allows you to easily create an book using your many different blog posts. Blurb crawls and stores all of your blog posts, along with any picture or charts they may contain, and files these blog posts as chapters and book pages. The use of the software is absolutely free; however, charges apply when you order physical copies of your blog book.
- Bookemon.Com – Much like blurb, Bookemon is also a software that crawls, stores and files your blog posts into book pages. However unlike Blurb, Bookemon has a larger, more personalized choice of book covers. Bookemon also serves the educational niche which may be unrelated to your blog’s topic.
