She asked me, "Why would anyone want to do such a thing?"
Then I realized I've been doing this blogging thing for a while, not consistently, but long enough. And I blog on other sites as well, including Boomer Babes.
Blogging has become a powerful source in connecting with others. In fact, some of us may have more virtual friends than flesh and blood friends. The Internet is not going away and will continue to become an important part of our friendship network.
I will be hosting Allison Bottke's new book, Setting Boundaries, on April 30th and will be offering a free book at that time. If you would like to read more about this powerful new topic, check out Allison's website.
How powerful is the Internet in the book industry?
The following are some of the reasons why people buy and read books. Let me know if this rings true with you.
1. Previous familiarity with the author - 99.1%
2. Recommendation of a friend - 91.2%
3. Reading about a book on another person's blog or website - 80.3% (That explains the blog tour phenomenon!).
4. Reading about a book on the author's website - 62.6%
And I would like to add a fifth reason why people read a book--interest in the subject!
If you know anyone who has enabled their adult child (and who doesn't), then grab a copy of Allison's new book: Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children.
Bless you on your blogging journey!
