    Sounds like a great idea! I am also working my way through Darren’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, and it’s taking me more than 31 days—mainly because of the time involved in going back through old posts to update links, improve headlines, add interlinks, etc. This scorecard might be a good way to make sure all my new posts are as good as they can be, even while I’m working through the book to improve my old posts. Thanks for the resource! I’m going to order mine today!

    Too bad it’s an ebook. I’ve bought a few of those over the years and never actually read any of them yet. I wouldn’t buy another at this point. I did read the ProBlogger paper book. I hoped it would have more information. But I would say it was a good start for someone new to blogging.

    I am trying to work out exactly how online blogging can be useful in an industry like publishing children’s books. It’s obviously extremely powerful in business and non-fiction, but can anyone advise me whether blogging can be used to increase exposure for children’s fiction?

    My first children’s book, ‘The 4 Powers of Daren Saner’ is now in bookstores and I’m trying to think of creative ways to promote it. Any and all advice would be appreciated.

    Michael, congratulations on having your book published! I think there are a lot of ways you can blog to promote sales. For example, I could see a series of blogs giving people a behind-the-scenes look at the whole process—writing it, getting it illustrated, querying publishers, getting accepted, reviewing the contract, the editing process, cover design, marketing, and sales. If you’re comfortable sharing how much of an income the book is generating, people are curious about that too. You might also blog about upcoming book-signing events, or do a little write-up about individual stores where your book is being sold—maybe a short video interview with one of the cashiers or salespeople. You can then include links to those stores’ website and facebook pages. Maybe work with them to offer blog coupons and discounts!

    I’m getting excited just thinking about all the possibilities! This could be really fun!

    Michael, it doesn’t really matter what you sell; if search engine traffic would be beneficial to you, then blogging will help.

    Hi Melanie,

    Thanks for the tips. I have started a blog on writing, and will incorporate some of your ideas over the coming weeks and months.

    Getting started in the publishing industry is a tough gig, but someone’s got to do it!
