I’ve thought about it long enough (a few weeks) and I am ready to move these thoughts into action.
Now hear me out before we get much further–I do not think that I am genius writer (hello typos).
Or that I know everything about this, that, or the other.
Especially in the whole “writing a book” department. I’m clueless folks.
I am going to assume it involves sitting behind a computer and typing but other than that, I know nothing.
Here is what I do know though–
I have ideas. Some funny. Some serious. Some insightful. And a lot (we’re talking a lot) of meaningless items floating around in that head of mine. Ever since I started this blog I thought it would be fun to take it one step further. And because this blog doesn’t take much initiative herself, I have to kind of direct her where I want her to go. In other words, I wear the pants around here. Sorry blog. You’re cute but you’re not that cute.
So blog–guess what? You are about to become a book. A real life book! Can you believe it blog?
Speaking of getting it done, that’s a small concern of mine. I am under the impression that writing a book may also take time. I’m thinking if I start praying for 50 hour days it might happen. Or if I drink enough wine, I will convince myself that 8 pm really only means 8 am. So yes, I will be drinking a lot during this process.
The basis of the book?
Blogging. And how to do this shaz.
But that’s not all.
You better believe it will have a smattering of funny stories mixed in.
You wanna know how to make a button? Or when you should start paying to advertise? What about how to respond to negativity in blog word? Most importantly–how many glasses of wine one should consume while writing a post?
I can assure you I do not have all of the answers. But I do have suggestions.
Most of which are probably not to be taken seriously…
Anyhow– help a sister out and let’s do this thang.
Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
