the only truth I know is my own experience

Do you think I shall make a book out of this blog? April 4, 2012

I am blogging since 5 years already and this blog has almost 800 posts so far…quite a collection! I received a suggestion by a friend to make a book out of this blog. Honestly I was never thinking about it. But why not?

1000petals  blog is so diverse, so many topics and pictures… what kind of book shall it be?

On the other hand, as far as I understand what people like most about this blog is my experiences and philosophical observations through my spiritual life. If I would make it a book concept then it shall be quote personal… – it is a good idea then?

Please comment if you really think this will make sence 🙂

    hi Axinia!
    of course i like your blog very much.
    to do a book is a good idea. is going to be for the people who do not read your blog like the older people who is not so much used to read and use internet.
    best wishes! Annemarie

    Hi Axinia,
    No dought it is good idea but i am thinking about other aspects since last two days .
    what could be printing cost because 1000 blogs means minimum 500 pages and in addition photos . for best photo’s printings you will require color atlas means it will be at least four color printing on photo paper . designing no matter you can get done with minimum cost and within short time so think with what cost the book will be available to readers ….
    i agree with that many readers remain away from computers and many dont have internet still what I suggest along with hard copy you should publish soft copy which can be shared and read by many readers who can not afford hard copy … i expect you are having 10,000 regular readers so definitely you can think for minimum 10 % of its hard copy in initial stage or for first print …
    thanks …

      your book cost approximately estimates Rs. 500/- per copy….

      • mahesh chendake Says:

        with good quality book …

          last month we print institutional bro ushers of 8-10 foldable pages on photo print paper almost 500 copies with best quality , it costs for rs. 50000/- including graphing designing and transporting etc…




  9. It’s a good idea. I suggest that you use Print on Demand publishing services. They print the book only after a person orders it and there is no upfront cost/minimum number of order copies, etc.

    Perhaps, you should keep the book to one topic for it to have a topical appeal and try to give more in the book on the chosen topics, than what is present on the blog. Wishing you all the best for your venture…

    Thank you my dear ones, let’s see may be something will come out of it 🙂
    I will not make it to 800 pages but if I will make a book then will pick up the best of all, may be 100 will be enough…Anyway I will let you know!

    At first I thought how do you make a blog into a book? ( I was thinking of typical literary styles like novels, stories, etc . But then I thought why not? Perhaps you could create a completely new literary style: the blog book ! Please go ahead Axinia, the world is so in need of spiritually inspiring books and films. It would be so inspiring and motivating to open a book full of your posts and beautiful photos.
    You have all my encouragement.

      thank you dear Erwin, as far as I know blog books exist already for several years and some are totall success.
      It will mean still lots of work and the question is if I really need all that load on my sholders or is it sufficient to run a blog…

  16. Triveni Says:

    Well, please check the the quality of my writing, and decide whether or not I could be a good guide and editor in your project.

    From where I stand—in other word, my view on the matter—it seems that you would need a person with a firm yet easy grasp of the English language (assuming it’s to be written in English).

    Feel free to contact me about it.

    —Regards, Harry
