Book Title and Topic Ideas for Blogging a Book

Posted February 3rd @ 6:22 am by Roger C. ParkerPrint

Are you looking for a title or topic ideas for blogging a book as a series of daily blog posts?

Consider the “idea-a-day” format!

The books at left share a common format, each offers 365 tips–one for each day of the year. The idea-a-day format is efficient for both authors and readers.

Author advantages

The idea-a-day format is efficient for authors because it provides a structure for writing.

The idea-a-day format requires more time in the beginning, planning your book and organizing your ideas. But, you save time later, because you don’t need to write as much for each blog post and chapter.

Once you’ve identified the 365 hints, ideas, tips, strategies, or shortcuts you want to share…it becomes relatively easy to write a concise paragraph (or two) about each topic, and elaborate upon it in a daily blog post.

Time spent planning your “idea a day” blog posts and book is offset by the time you save blogging and writing your book.

Bonus: As you move forward with your blog posts, you not only are writing a book, but you’re also building an excellent foundation for a list-building autoresponder series or e-course.

The format is also ideal as the foundation of a podcast or video series.

Reader advantages

Idea-a-day books are as efficient for readers as they are for authors. The format offers short, practical ideas that can be easily read and applied on a one-a-day basis.

The format is ideal for business readers who want to make the best of their time commuting or reading. The idea also makes it easy for readers to locate desired information, especially if you incorporate a logical navigation structure for ebooks.
