I'm writing a book [#HiveBloPoMo]

There, I put it out there... I'm officially writing a book. And I will share my journey, as well as a little insight into the actual content. As Hive Blog Post Month (aka HiveBloPoMo) has just started, I'll be using April 2022, to create the first base of the book. Consider the daily posts on Hive during this month as a little insight. Post written this month might make it into the book, or not. For now, these are just my initial thoughts.

Day 0 - Why this book?


As I'm writing this book about creating an online career, I do see a certain irony in publishing an actual physical book. But there is a story behind it. Over the past decade, I've seen how traditional education makes less and less sense in the world we live in today. As everything thing becomes more digital, more tech-driven, and more modern, in many cases, the educational system has struggled to keep up. With a vast amount of useful information that is available online, but yet to be found in school textbooks, traditional education is having a hard time catching up. However, there is a flip side. We are currently losing a couple of fundamentals that society was built on. Reading and writing still form two of the most important basic skills needed in life. Reading helps expand the mind, helps confirm thoughts and find new ideas. Writing helps articulate your feelings, express yourself and document the process. And while we gravitate towards video, remember that even if it is just writing a good caption or a Youtube video title, the skill of writing still provides value.

This book aims to provide value to those in search of an online career. In some cases, an online career is considered a corporate online career, in the form of online marketing for a company. Helping a company to improve its online presence, either as an employee or as a consultant. In other cases, an online career has been viewed as a career as a creator, someone who creates content for a living, monetizes it, and creates a living without ever having to settle for a regular 9 to 5 job again. With this book, I'm hoping to expand on these concepts. That there are many more options than just those two. That you don't always have to choose. That the internet now offers alternatives in life we've just never considered before.

I've now roughly spent 26 years of my life on the internet. The first half of those years I mainly spent consuming content online. The second half I mainly spent earning a living from it. I like both, consumption and creation go hand in hand. But creating an online career doesn't come with sacrifice. Picking up this book comes with two options. The first is just for a fun read and to learn, the second is to act on starting or improving your own online career. This book is for anyone interested in pursuing an online career. It doesn't matter if you are a teenager who wants to become a YouTuber or TikTok creator. A 60-year-old who wants to share knowledge online or is considering a career switch. A renowned TV or Radio host who wants to transition more to digital. A student, a teacher, an athlete. It is for everyone who wants to use the Internet to improve their opportunities in life.

Wow! Congratulations ahead of time and we wish you more success. I'm sure a lot of folks out there will need a guide as the world truly is changing. I personally doubt if all will return as before. It's time to learn and teach new sets of skills.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hivebits blends Hive's blockchain and Bitcoin's ethos. Your effort = your reward. Mine HBIT simply 1-per-day with (no space): ! hivebits or ! HBIT or ! hbit or $ hbit.
Success! You mined .9 HBIT and the user you replied to received .1 HBIT on your behalf. You can receive 100% of the HBIT by replying to one of your own posts or comments. Or, support Hivebits at the official HBIT mine | your wallet | market | tools | connect | <><

This confirmation reply will go off when Resource Credits (RCs) get low. Yet, your hivebits command will still go through and you'll get your HBIT. :)

Thanks @aliveandthriving / @iamraincrystal!

I hope there will be some useful stuff for Hive owners in it as well. There will also most likely be a subchapter dedicated to Hive, with an Alive community mention.

First you spent tike consuming content, then you earned a living by creating content, and now you plan on writing a book that provides insight to those that are also on that path. You have come full circle.

Will there be a hard copy? Because that would finally be my chance to own a book written and signed by a celebrity. 🙃

I feel like we also need to talk more about the brilliance of that picture.

It does feel a little bit full circle indeed. There are a couple of more steps after the book, but it does feel good.

There will be a hard copy book for sure.

We do need to talk more irl. Maybe time to set up a Hive meet-up.

But creating an online career doesn't come with sacrifice.

Did you mean "doesn't come without sacrifice"?

Anyway, that's great news and looking forward to that book of yours! 😁 Oh, and I thought an e-book would also be an option, but I have enough e-books waiting to be read. I tend to pick up the hardcopy ones way easier 😅.

Yes... I have a proofreader!!
I knew it would be handy to drop the rough draft on Hive.
The physical book is my main focus now. Audio and e-book are also part of the process, but a softcover is currently my first choice.

!LOL it happens. Sometimes when I re-read my posts after having clicked "post", I see some of the mistakes I missed. While I tend to re-read, I don't how many times before posting 😅.

I get that. Success! 👍
