I’m seriously considering publishing a book with my articles from the blog. Why would I do this when folks can just read the blog? Here’s a few reasons:
*I would do my best to make sure the book is inexpensive–under 100 pesos. I’m not really concerned with making a profit, as long as I can recover my initial investment in the publishing.
*If the price is kept low, students could have their own copy for about the same price as surfing the web for a few hours.
*It would be a nice little inexpensive gift for teenagers and young adults–something you can’t do with my blog. Handing someone a website address for their birthday is quite kuripot.*
*The book would have a few things not in the blog. The articles may be expanded or the book might have a few articles not published on the blog.
*There are lots of students who do not consistently have internet access that could benefit from these articles.
*If the book sells, it could generate some much-needed revenue for our student ministry.
*It would be a good way to bless Filipino students and young adults.
So what do you think? I need your honest opinion. Do you guys think students would actually buy a reasonably-priced book with my blog articles? Is the market already flooded? Don’t be afraid to give me the American Idol Simon treatment here if I’m being delusional.
*Kuripot is a Tagalog word meaning “stingy.”
