_MG_3367I have a blog devoted to tattoos and body art (in case nobody noticed my mentioning it before, yeah right).  I also keep an eye on the blogs that showcase new WordPress plugins.  Not long ago, I saw a plugin that purports to turn blog posts into e-book formats.  I tried it out.

It didn’t work properly for me, who knows why.  But it got me to thinking that I could just as easily turn those blog posts into an e-book about tattoos without using the plugin.  I had kinda-sorta thought about doing that in the past, but it was just another one of those things I never got around to doing.  But now I’ve decided to see if I can make it work.  I can release it through Smashwords, which did the e-book conversion of my novel Closed Circuit (which you can find here, say I, doing my bit to promote a good book any way I can).  That site puts books into proper format for all the popular e-readers, plus plain text, PDF and HTML.  So there’s something there for everyone.

I will have to figure out the best way to do it before NaNoWriMo starts in two weeks, though.  After that, I won’t have the time.  🙂

Have any of you ever turned a blog into a book?  Any tips or hints for success?
