Blogs And E Books – What Your Followers Want

Blogs, e books, Street articles, Computer program hand books, Face book and association protocols, is it all too much? This is what keeps me busy during the day and sometime all night.

My wife in the past, convinced I had married to my business, relieved when I started to relax and play more golf. She then felt I had married my golf, and again later the golf course. Now that I'm semi retired and involved with my computer program, she's convinced I've married my computer.

Can a computer be cited in a divorce court? “He's having an affair with his computer, your Honour!” the retort would probably be “Sexual? Are you sure?” No way it will stand up in court. But if I'm honest, I love what I'm doing and she supports me all the way, her only concern is my health and later nights worry her.

Blogs for me hopefully lead to sales of e books, the new blog I have started is of my photography, mainly taken in the Kruger National Park, but all sorts are likely to creep in. Short descriptions and anecdotes will appear with the photos and this, with the great advice I get from articles authors I follow, will create readers, followers and finally buyers.

The encouragement to undertake this blog comes from fellow authors that have read my articles of the Park, and queried where they can see more photos. This seemed so unlikely a thing for me as my photos are never taken for others but rather for myself, but the family have always pushed me to publish some they think outstanding.

The experts have convinced me that a blog can create followers, from followers come sales, building lists and offering free bees things now bounding in my head. What can I offer free? A few nice photos, hopefully a smile or two, maybe even an encouraging push to those who consider visiting our wonderful country. (maybe there's a tax deduction hidden somewhere for that) but the biggest gift I can hope to offer is a good feeling for those that visit the blog.

From the blog will develop the e-book, the book being about the same subject I should sell at least one. If no one buys, I'll buy one myself, just for the accolades of saying I'm a published author, who has sold a book.

From blogs about animals, come e-books about animals. From these come huge enjoyment. From full-time work comes a computer program that creates the need for handbooks. From programs and handbooks come the big money. From the big money comes retirement and with retirement comes more writing, from more writing comes the enjoyment again. I wonder is this not perpetual motion at work here?

The blog is up and running, and the links are all in place, lets see what type cunning, the blog brings into space.

Will get the address tomorrow to send the money to; I am to tired to think straight. Good Night to you and your family

I think I could perfectly relate to the first part of this article. You see, my wife also argues on how focused I am on what I do. Although there are things dear to me which I gave up already because she can't take it, like being in an MMA match. I visited your website and it looks good and putting your pics to e-book would be great. Have you tried also promoting your pics to online picture markets?

Hi lemuei Thanks for the comments, picture markets never thought about it to be quite honest.

Hey Rob, Wonderful article and a great looking website. I wish you all the success with the blog and e-book. We all can do it! On a side note, I made a few cents from adsense on my site yesterday! While it's a very very small earning it brought me great joy and excitment. Wishing you and everybody IM success! :)

Thanks so much "A Secret For You" once I've got a bit of traffic through the blog I'm going to try and see what I can do with it. My knowledge. to be quite honest, comes from what I have read in articles as well as a bit wider sources. wither I get it right or not will be another matter. Glad you liked the blog site, Thanks so much.

That's interesting; I've been thinking of taking extracts from my potential book as articles in the hope that a good response will encourage me to finish it - if I can find the time! What's your opinion?

Hi Kim, my theory and from the advise I got from an author on this site was to build a following by using short articles, attract them to the blog to look at the photos and once you have a following is to attempt to sell an eBook or two. I don't know if you went through the link to look at the blog where I'm putting photos with short descriptions and short stories, but so far I am getting hits on the blog, more from another source than SA so something is working. I personally think if someone got my attention and then came up with an eBook the chances are I'm going to buy it. After all why do we buy a certain authors books? because we like the style or the narrative or for what ever reason, it just makes sense to me, (not my idea as I say passed on to me as I am to you) If this helps I will be pleased for your sake, it cannot do any harm and for that matter the people that are visiting the blog and its only been open two days astounds me, where do they hear about these things?
