Making Books from Blogs
HTML + CSS + XML = EBOOK
digital rights management
Get it out of WordPress.
Analyze and outline.
Not everything makes the cut.
Get it into Microsoft Word.
Use styles for clean formatting.
Make it book better.
Answer the where.
Birthday gift for your aunt?
Selling on your site?
Giving it away?
Answer the what.
Ebook + print book
Print book only
Ebook + free PDF
book content management
Requires fresh install of WP Multi-Site
Makes major changes to:
web presentation layer
Same as MOBI
(just a different DRM)
International standards (IDPF)
Package it into EPUB.
Or export to HTML and upload to Amazon.
Set up your
book in InDesign.
Import from Microsoft Word.
Works best with all those styles.
Table of contents
PDF for print
DIY PRINT BOOK
Submit PDF to printer.
This is a design task.
Which requires some design skills.
Two documents: print and ebook.
And when I say book, I don’t mean the shitty thing that Amazon sells on your Kindle. I just mean this idea—this place in our culture where
can happen. Where a writer can do this thinking that you can’t do in 140 characters, or even 140 blog posts.

Book: A Futurist's Manifesto
Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur: How to Publish a Book by Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch
BOOKS = WEB
“It was obvious that the world needed a great, and easy to use, web-based book creation tool — one that could do print and ebooks (which every author and publisher needs right now), but that would be future-proofed by
building books right into the fabric of the web
from the start.”
100,000 new blogs
1.5 million new books
height of adolescence
