Todays talk is all about Beyond the Blog.
To be honest even with the blogging experience of 1 year I feel a little bit inexperienced still. I think I have a lot more to learn about the business. Yes, I call blogging a business! I guess you may want to know why?
Blogging as a Business
Business invlolves money and guess what? You need money to buy books! and yet you blog about books which eventually leads into a purchase. Blogging has been part of the business since it started and a great way to be part of the business is to monetize your blog.
Seeing the heirarchy when you blog about something or even talk about it here people get curious, they want to know if you have the same opinion as theirs. Which eventually leads into a sale and starts the whole business. Correct me if I'm seeing it wrong but that is what I know.
Who doesn't want earn money while doing what you love? Well aside from getting free books I think one of the main goals of Bloggers is to monetize their blog at some point. I hope to exclude people who doesn't want to monetize but really who doesn't? At some point you will think of it because I do.
Opportunity in Blogging
Being an established blogger has its perks, oppurtunities awaits to those people who do well in what they do. But apparently as I said I have yet to learn more. We had the oppurtunity and I'm proud to say that we did a Blurb for Mary Ting author of Crossroads.
It's a one in a lifetime experience that an established author comes to you and offers you to get her book blurb by us. We didn't pass the oppurunity and it was really overwhelming. I'm not gloating but it's such a pride moment for myself and my co-bloggers to even muster the thought and then it happened.
I do hope to find more oppurtunities in the future because of blogging. I hope to more professional and be a better blogger in the future. I think it's wise to say this saying "Good things come to those who wait". I hope to gain more exposure because of blogging.
