Can someone tell me more about book publishing?

I’m in the middle of writing a book. The only thing is i’m not really sure how everything works. What happens next, what must i do to get my book published etc. Do i have to pay or do i get paid?

You could do some research on all the options you have for publishing a book. Yes, you can go look for an agent, but you can also consider other possibilities like self-publishing and print-on-demand services.

Try checking out the publishing process offered by Xlibris, a self-publishing company at http://www2.xlibris.com/faq_publishing_process.html. That will give you an idea of their publishing process.

If you want more details, you can order a free publishing guide at http://www.xlibris.com/requestkit/index.asp?src=aop&key=mm.

What is online blogging and how do people make money out of it?

Is it possible for a 16 year old to make money out of blogging?

I have no idea what a blog is or how they work.

I know that it can make money though

Thanks!

Online blogging is a way of communicating with others on a regular basis about any topic you wish to discuss. You would normally have a website of your own in place, and then sign up for a Blogger account at Blogger.com, so that you would have both a website and a blog. But you don’t necessarily have to have a website.

You can write anything you wish in your blog, make a post through Blogger.com, or WordPress.com, and every day or every week you would write up a post that your readers would find interesting.

If you’re interested in telling people how to make money online for example, you can write blog posts about how to make money online. If you’re interested in hiking in the mountains, you can write posts on your hikes. Or if you’re interested in music, you can write posts on your favourite artists, etc.

At the end of the blog, there is a comments section where you can invite others to comment on your post, and then get a discussion rolling.

In order to make money on a blog, you can copy and paste banners on your site that lead to another website offering something for sale. For example, you may be selling books online, so you can copy/paste a banner from Amazon.com leading to the books you sell via Amazon. If someone clicks on your Amazon banner, goes to your book list, and buys one of your books, you make money.

You can also use links in your blog posts to make money within the text. For example, if I am writing about how to make money online, I may want to use a HTML hyperlink for the phrase "make money online" that when people click it, it will lead to something I’m selling.

Also, at the end of your blog posts, you would normally make a little blurb about 2-3 sentences, an author bio box, containing links to your website/s that sell something, or to a product you are selling. When people click the links and buy your stuff, that is how you make money.

You can also put Google Adsense on your blog and make money the same way.

The trick is getting enough traffic to your blog. You want visitors to be drawn to your site, so you have to market your blog and make it findable on the net. A good way to do that is by joining blog carnivals, blog traffic exchanges, posting your links in posts such as the one I’m making right now. Once you get a lot of traffic to your blog, you can start making money.

It’s not the easiest way to make money online, but it is very effective if you know how to do it right. There are many ebooks you can read on the topic to get you started. I have an online business and a blog that all started with the help of the Plug-in Profit Site. This is how I learned to make money online. Check out my blog at http://www.HonestMoneyMaking.com/blog/ and good luck with your blog!

How to Make Money Writing Online – Make Money as a Freelance Article Writer

In this article we’ll take a look at how you can make money writing online. There are many ways in which you can do this including many scams to avoid. The process of making money with your writing skills is fairly simple.

All you really need to know is know how to properly align yourself with a market of individuals that are looking for content creation. You can make money online writing articles, blog posts, copywriting, etc.

The first step is to have an online portfolio where you can display your writing skills. This will make it much easier for potential clients to decide if they want to hire you or not.

A simple webpage or blog with writing samples is good enough. Just make sure you have at least 20 articles ranging in different topics. If you are specialized in a given field or in various fields then make sure you showcase this also!

You can make money writing online and it’s really easy once you know where to go.

The next step is to find potential clients that are willing to pay you to write for them. Digital Point forums is a great place to start. The “Buy, sell & trade” section is a huge marketplace where you can find buyers for your content and articles.

Realistically speaking, the amount of money you make is completely dependent upon yourself! There are many online writers making a full time income writing articles alone. What makes this job so appealing is the freedom you get of working for yourself and setting your own hours.

It’s not unheard of to make up to $5000 a month with this type of online activity. The best part is finding loyal, long term clients to write for. It can provide a stable income for years.

If independence is important to you then you should definitely get into writing online!

What is a good blogging site for someone like me?

… I have a desire to jot down and share serious issues of what is on my mind. I have heard about this term-blogging for a time now, and so am looking for something that cost nothing to join or post.

Now also, I would like for their to be an option to read, rate and comment on other members writings as well. And the option for mine to be read, rated and given opinion to.

So, what is a good blogging site for someone like me?

Well, if you know about twitter and want something similar, but with the ability to post longer thoughts and entries, check out Typepad. They offer free accounts.

For more general, long form blogging check out blogger.com or wordpress.com . both offer free accounts. I tend to like WordPress better because it is more customizable with different themes and colors, as well as plugins that offer different features.

All three of these allow others to leave comments on your posts.

Hope that helps!

What blogging site can I start a blog and actually get viewers or subscribers?

I am trying to find a good blogging site where I can actually get viewers or readers to view my blog. I have tried blogspot and live journal with no real success. Does anyone know of any good sites where I can actually blog and get readers?

Another thing is any tips to get readers to your blogs? Should you follow a theme or how do you need to advertise or if you keep posting will they come to you?

Please no spam. Thanks

There really isn’t any ‘special’ blogging site that is just going to provide readers or subscribers. I’ve had wonderful luck with both blogger and wordpress. But I have also taken the time to promote every single blog I have created.
