After a long and painful struggle with trying to find my “career path” in life, I am beginning to think writing may be it (which is a shock considering I never pegged myself as the writer type).
Anyway, I started off blogging because it was easiest. I now write and manage a few blogs on a variety of topics. I earn about $250-300 per month via Adsense. The only problem is, that is really peanuts, and my income isn’t necessarily tied to my writing skills. It depends most on whether or not people can find my site, search engine rankings, and so forth (which I think is silly).
I am really getting interested in writing some fiction, and possibly even a non-fiction book. My question is this: Do books usually bring in more income than blogging like what I am doing? Has anyone ever attempted both publishing a book and blogging? Which typically earns the most income?
I do enjoy blogging, but I feel that writing an actual book would be much more interesting and coherent than making blog posts on random topics.
