Writing Books/Announcing A Book


Dear Jannie Balliett,

I hope all is well with you. I am the owner of a blogging website (Which also writes articles). I have decided to write a book. That means I'm kinda forced to slow down writing on my website. I'm wondering, Should I write mini-blogs every now and then so I don't lose readership, or should I post my intention on my website, and inform readers post may be slowed down (Or even halted for a time), because I'm in the mist of working on a book manuscript? Also, I must take search engine webcrawlers into consideration as well. I will wait for you reply. Thank you.


William, that has nothing to do with writing books information.

This is a matter of opinion and your time and how you divide the time between your blog and writing a book.

I cannot answer this for you, as it would be my opinion and my lack of knowledge as to your multi-tasking abilities..........

You cannot halt writing on your blog if you want it to be alive with readership and comments.

You must divide your time between keeping your blog alive if you want the blog-- and begin writing your book.

Obviously, your writing a book will be a little longer time frame as you write your blog to keep it continued.

It's a matter of your personal choice: delayed finishing a novel (taking longer to complete) versus keeping your blog alive and active.
