This is an introduction to my coming up eBook.

Have you been harbouring this secret desire to start a blog? Or you've started one and haven't posted in six months. Or you've just been putting it off waiting for inspiration for that first, grand post that tells the world you've arrived. Don't remain in any of these situations, is what we're telling you.
Diaries are seen as intimate friends by those who maintain them. The private accounts, the writer's intimate thoughts and ideas which are detailed in diaries offer a glimpse into the person's true nature.

Anne Frank in 1942.
This makes diaries interesting reading and probably the most famous of such an account is the one by Anne Frank which chronicles her and her family's life under the Nazi rule during World War II, and which was ultimately published. Tragic accounts aside, the content of a diary—no matter how mundane from the writer's perspective—can be interesting to people in a different place and time.

People blog for many reasons—some use it truly as an online diary, detailing their lives. Some people use blog to convey a message to the world, especially when other channels are not available, or when revealing information through the usual channels would prove detrimental to their existence. Blogging is a way of getting your voice heard on the Net. Your blog lets you tell people about you, or about things you’re interested in or passionate about. Adding photos, videos, and audio to your blog can make it even better.

As the Internet has become more social, blogs have gained in popularity. Today, there are over 100 million blogs with more entering the blogosphere every day. Blogs have become more than online diaries. In fact, blogging has become an important part of the online and offline worlds with popular bloggers impacting the worlds of politics, business and society with their words. It seems inevitable that blogging will become even more powerful in the future with more people and businesses recognizing the power of bloggers as online influencers.

It's difficult to write or say on how to become a successful blogger, because everyone has a viewpoint, and it's difficult to justify one's own. What we say here about how to “Blog Professionally in Seven Days” may not be the best advice you'll get, we have to admit. But we've made a sincere effort based on 7 years of blogging experience. Besides, we haven't only spoken about the “Blog Professionally in Seven Days”: we also talk about how to set up your blog, how to make money off your blog, how to get your blog noticed by the search engines, what makes for ethical blogging, and more.

Ultimately, however, we can only be an inspiration and a gentle holding hand. Now that you have this in your hands, you're just one step away from getting your blog set up. And well begun is half done, as the wise man put it. Go ahead; indulge your armchair ambitions a bit.
