Transcript of "Convert your blog posts into your first e book"
Do you know you can publish an eBook easily by using your existing blog posts? If you have written more than a thousand articles on your blog you can transform your blog posts into one or more eBooks. Here are the steps to publish your first eBook:
Select a title for your first eBook: As I write about living with life, my first eBook is an overview of several subjects such as health, work, personal finance, family, relationships, self development and happiness. When the first eBook is done, I can expand and write more in-depth eBooks covering each topic in my first eBook. You should do the same so that you can publish several eBooks without running out of ideas.
Choose relevant articles from your blog: My blog platform is Blogger. It is able to tell me the number of views for each article. So, it is easy for me to choose relevant and popular posts for my eBook. However, it is necessary to combine and revise several articles to suit one particular chapter.
Use Word to write your eBook: You can write your eBook using Word. It allows you to convert your files into eBook formats such as ePub, an open industry standard and Mobipocket, the format used by Amazon.
