Writing A Blog

I thought about writing a book once but then I realized I don’t read a great deal of them so I decided to write a blog…yeah a blog works for me. Won’t make much money but its all about the fun right?

Hi there, my name is Tony Burgess from Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. I am a believer, bleeding-heart, idealist and blogger. I'm married to Laura and Cody is our dog. Daily I work for a blood bank. My blog is where I chronicle and curate the sacred, serious and silly things in my life. Thank you for connecting with me. Grace, peace and love!

  1. You have a great point – although some folks need books and there are times when topics demand a book (I have that issue right now with certain health topics that continue to come up in my circle – a book is the obvious next step).

    However, I think some people miss the beauty of what you just pointed out – sometimes the blog is the goal – and the fun of it is the meat. Like some folks who write fiction need to put it all into a book (and maybe should) but let’s not forget the value of sharing one post at a time – engaging with small bits and maybe that is not the precursor for a book – maybe that is the all in all –
    the meat!

  2. You would be surprised how many successful authors have blogs. I know at least four I am subscribed to. Yes they write and are bringing in money from books sales but they also write entertaining stories on their blogs which then draws people to their books. Hugs

  3. So, I dont see it as an either / or situation. I published a book in June and it is a very different experience than blogging. Not better, just different. I think of it this way: I go running regularly and do 3 or 5 miles depending on the day. But I’ve also run 3 marathons. That’s 26.2 mile treks. A very different experience, but what a great feeling to have done it. Not everyone needs to run a marathon or write a book, but if you want to, if you think it’s something you’d like to accomplish, then please do take the journey! Its incredible!! And like running a marathon, so worth it when you’re done.

  4. I started my blog with hopes of one day writing a book. I have so many interests… blogging, photography, podcasting, traveling, music, etc. But for as long as I can remember, my dream has always been to write and publish a book. Not to make money, which would be awesome if it did… but just to have that accomplishment. I always thought it would be a book of poetry along with my photos but that idea has changed. I can now say I’ve started writing my book and I’m now on chapter three. I have no idea how long it will take but it’s been such a positive experience, so far. I can’t wait to see my finished masterpiece. You should think about it. You just might surprise yourself. 😀
