Crafting Click-Worthy Blogs: A Monday Routine for Aspiring Full-Time Authors
As a full-time author and publisher, I’ve learned the importance of strategically investing time into creating content that not only resonates with my audience but also serves as a powerful income-generating tool. Mondays, for me, are dedicated to laying the foundation for future success. I do this by updating my author blog by crafting click-worthy blogs. Today, I want to share insights and tips for fellow authors. This will be good for you if you are looking to transition from writing as a hobby to a full-time profession, especially for those juggling a day job.
Blogging as an Author for Income
For authors seeking additional streams of income beyond book sales, blogging can be a game-changer. The key is to share valuable information found in your books and expand on real-life themes or messages. Regardless of the genre, if your book carries a significant theme, your blog becomes a platform to dig deeper into it. Doing this establishes yourself as an authority figure on that/those topics.
In the digital age, visibility is paramount. No one can buy your book if they don’t know it exists. This year, the focus for authors should be on enhancing visibility by maximizing impact. One effective strategy is setting up an author website and connecting it to platforms like Pinterest to widen your reach. I’ll be sharing a video this week, offering a step-by-step guide on how to execute this to increase traffic and visibility.

List of Valuable Content:
- Author’s Journey: Share your writing process, struggles, and triumphs. Readers often find the behind-the-scenes of an author’s life fascinating.
- Writing Tips: Offer practical advice on character development, plot twists, or overcoming writer’s block.
- Book Reviews: Not just your own books but also those of fellow authors within your genre. This fosters a sense of community and provides valuable recommendations to your audience.
- Exclusive Content: Provide sneak peeks, deleted scenes, or bonus material related to your books to keep your readers engaged.
- Industry Insights: Discuss trends, challenges, and opportunities within the publishing industry. This positions you as an informed and authoritative figure.
As we focus on increasing impact, visibility, and income as authors, leveraging the power of blogging on your author blog becomes a crucial step in the journey. By consistently creating valuable content, connecting with your audience, and strategically enhancing your visibility, you’ll be well on your way to turning your writing passion into a sustainable full-time profession.
