Should you start a blog?

I have noticed a trend with many of the authors I come in contact with through my book reviews – they don’t have a blog. Here is an alternative view to having a blog to sell your books. Worth a view! ❤

  1. I joined a course on how to sell and market your book by a fairly popular writer who says, in no uncertain terms, that blogs don’t sell books, fiction books that is. For non-fiction it can be very useful to have a blog and blog on the topic of your expertise or what you write about. For him, anything that takes away time from writing or specific marketing, is not worth it.

I have cut back on comments and such because of time constraints. I love the connections, too but I understand what you are saying. Good writing sells books I think. 😉❤️

  2. Thanks for this post. I like some of the people I’ve met here but checking the website every day, never mind actually blogging, takes up too much time. I’ve been thinking if I was better at blogging I’d sell more books. Glad to hear it isn’t so …course, I still have no clue how to sell books 🙂
