As I map out my next writing project, I’ve been asking various people about how their blogging fits in to their overall writing goals. I’m amazed by how many people don’t connect their posts to or with their larger pieces. One friend told me that there is not really a book idea in that. Well, I disagree. I think that if your posts are connected in some meaningful way to an overall theme or philosophy, these tidbits can be rounded out to become a fully fledged book. It could be a memoir. It could be an analysis. It could be a study in “following” and “liking.” You pick.
I’m hoping that I’ll get some feedback from you and your views on the long-term worth of a blog post. What do you think?
