Should I Publish A Book Of My Favorite Blog Posts?

I have been thinking about this for over a year now so decided to share it with all of you before taking the next steps. This idea initially came from a new blog reader who asked me if I had anything with my top blog posts in physical book form. I told him that I did not but did send a recommendation of a few of my most popular posts. He then responded saying, “Well if you ever make a physical book with your top posts in it, I’d like a copy!”

Now a year later I’m seriously thinking about doing it. The question for me is, are more people interested in buying something like this, and what service should I use to do it, if of course people are interested?

My thought was to break the book into four different sections:

  1. Buying Domains
  2. Selling Domains
  3. Developing and Monetizing Domains
  4. Running a Domain Business

There are a number of services that can turn your blog into a book but since I have no experience with any of them, I thought I’d reach out to all of you for some advice. Here are the services I’ve look at so far:

Let me know if any of you have had experience with these services, and most importantly, if you would want to buy a physical book like this!

    I think Amazon has a ‘print as required’ option for writers that don’t have representation by a major publisher.

    Your readers get the option of choosing to purchase an ebook or a printed book at different prices.

    A chapter on ‘The difference between domain investing & cybersquatting’ would be essential in the book.
