My First Blog Post – Life is a Lab….

As it so happens I have started this blog on my birthday June 16th 2013 – I am 46 years old today.  It also happens to be Fathers Day of which I am a proud father of three sons.   I woke up this morning with no particular idea of what to do today but somehow I have ended up starting this blog (perhaps this idea was brewing at some sub-conscious level all along).  Now that I think of it I was in fact looking for information on how to write an e-book and came across a very good blog by Amy Lynn Andrews  http://bloggingwithamy.com/how-to-write-an-ebook-the-guide/ I ended up clicking on a link on how to start a blog and here I am.  I suppose therefore the blog itself is also an experiment and I will be sharing my own reflections and learning on blogging as I go along.

Writing an E-Book

One of the projects I have on-going at the moment is writing an e-book.  This is a project I started in 2012 but have not made much progress on recently.  I have fed all my ideas into a Word file on my laptop.  The book is about my own personal experience of doing a PhD.  I have all the ideas down but it is an unstructured mess!  I was searching the internet for information on writing an e-book when I came across other information which led me to developing this blog.  Now I intend to blog about my experiences of writing and publishing an e-book!  Through this platform I will share what I learn on my e-book publishing journey and any good resources I come across on e-book writing and publishing.  I am also hoping that this blog will also be an incentive for me to get moving on my e-book publishing project.
