How to Blog a Book or Book a Blog

Some say the blog-to-book craze reached its height in 2009, but bloggers continue to land deals and have their books released—possibly more per month now than at that time. Agents and acquisition editors troll the Internet looking for blogs to turn into books because they want to find ideas that are as close to a "sure thing" as possible. A blog with an established readership and a blogger with a built-in platform represents a successfully test marketed book idea.

Whether you want to write a book from scratch post by post on your blog (blog a book) or repurpose previously published posts into a manuscript (book your blog), you can turn your blog into a book-production machine. Either way, you can blog your way to a successful book—one that attracts readers and publishers.
