Blogs are a great tool for writers to use as a way to experiment with new ideas – to see what people like and what people don’t like.
As a writer myself, whenever I have an idea that I think is important to talk about, I write a post about it first and put it on my blog.
Some of my posts have been good, some haven’t.
This is how I determine whether an idea is good or not, which I can tell based on the engagement that it gets.
After experimenting with a thought, if it’s good, I can then take that thought and turn it into something bigger.
I can turn that blog post (300 words) into a full length article (1,000 words), a short eBook (5,000 words), or even into an actual full length book (30,000 – 50,000 words).
This is what I did not too long ago.
I took posts that I had already written on my blog that people liked, and compiled them into a short eBook.
The great thing about this was that all the posts were already written. I didn’t have to write anything new. I just had to organize it.
This meant that it took me no more than a day to put together a short eBook and only an additional day to edit it.
This is something I recommend every writer should do as well because if you want people to sign up to your blog, then you have to incentivize them.
This is why most successful writers and bloggers will give out a free eBook to new subscribers as a way to incentivize people to sign up to their email list.
Whatever your reason may be for wanting to create an eBook, make sure that you make your eBook about something that you think people will enjoy. The eBook that I wrote for example is about how to build an audience as a writer.

I would really love some feedback on it.
