After a few years of seeing self-publishing "expert" after "mentor" after "guru" piously pass on the tired opinion that you need to have a blog to get anywhere and update it daily and all that crap, it's really refreshing to have somebody confirm my own impression: that it's a waste of time.
And he does so in a really solid, persuasive manner. It's hard to escape what he pounds down with examples, common sense reasoning, and his own experience. Yes, this is not a sour grapes thing: "Buck" was making a living as a blogger. Until he figured out he could make MORE money and have more fun with less pain in the butt in other ways of spending his time.
And he was nice enough to tell us about it.
If you are looking at your blog as an income source or necessary part of flogging your book, reading KYB could be the best time/few bucks investment you will make.
Blogging takes time. And it takes money. LOADS of time to write posts, drive traffic to your site and then to monetize. It often can take years for a blogger to make substantial money from his/her blog and most blogs won't even make a dime.
There ARE other ways to make money Online. This book will point you in that direction. I wish this was first Online Biz book I had read...it would have saved me a lot of time, money and effort.
And, it is.
It's also some of the smartest advice you'll ever read if, like me, you tend to post (and post, and post) lots of information online.
At a certain point, you may realize, "Oh dear heaven, this is turning into a BOOK!"
That's probably what it should have been, from the start. But, you keep looking at the many followers who seem to hang on every silvery word you write, and rave (gratefully) about every bit of advice you share... and so you throw more good advice (and writing time) into your blog. Or your lengthy social media posts.
THIS book will help you break that addiction. The author provides 12 (or more) VERY good reasons to revisit your blog posts, update & edit them, and turn them into a book. Or several books.
It's not as difficult as it might sound. Really, I'm doing this myself. With each post I look at, I realize my information and insights would be FAR better in book format.
Otherwise, I'm trusting that website visitors start with the first article and read what follows in a sequence that makes sense.
But, my analytics tell a different story: Most of my visitors arrive at an article halfway through what I'm explaining. They read a page or two, and leave before they get to the punchline. Or without the background necessary for those posts to make sense.
Anyway, if I could go back to my early days online and tell myself what to do, I'd hand myself this book. (I'd also explain that income from ads in my website sidebars... well, that wouldn't last forever.)
Whether you're an "old-timer" online, or just someone who loves to share (and share, and share) things you're learning about a topic that's dear to your heart, STOP ADDING TO YOUR BLOG AND READ THIS BOOK.
Ahem. (Sorry about the shouting. I'm doing that for my own benefit as much as anyone else's. I'm still mid-process with this, and I'm tempted to backslide with "just one more blog post...")
Really, this book is a must-read for every Chatty Cathy, Verbose Vernon, or Helpful Hannah who just can't stop adding to his or her blog.
Make it a book, instead. "Kill Your Blog" explains why, from enough different angles, that it might help you kick the blogging habit, reach more readers in a better way, and, y'know, actually earn some money from what you're sharing.
