How to get your writing out there online
If you love to write, the joy of doing so may be enough for you. But what if you want to share your talent with others? It does not matter whether you are a poet, a short story writer or simply someone who likes to express their opinion by creating articles, you may come to a point where you want place content online for people to see. The good news is that you can do this for free.
It’s possible to use a content management system (CMS), such as WordPress, to get your writing out into the public domain. You may prefer to self-publish, using a solution such as Amazon’s Kindle direct publishing. Another option is to make a flipbook using online software. Let’s take a look at these three different methods.
Placing your writing on a CMS website
Many bloggers use a CMS solution to house their blog posts. You can use a CMS free of charge and the functionality is pretty good, as well as being simple to use. Writing a blog can be an ideal way to introduce people to your writing skills. If you use your own CMS site then you have the freedom to be as creative as you wish.
You can also use a website as a place to display passages from books or poems. This again helps people to appreciate your work. It’s important to remember that you are less likely to be successful in getting content published in a literary journal if it has been displayed online previously. This is why you need to be careful about which content you put out there.
Using a self-publishing option
Being able to publish your own work, using a solution is a tempting proposition. You simply have to follow the instructions and you can get your work out there very quickly.
The vast majority of self-published works achieve a moderate or low level of success. But there have been some impressive self-publishing results. Even if you do not suddenly achieve international fame, at least you have been able to give people the opportunity to read what you write.
Producing a flipbook online
The use of online flipbook technology is becoming more popular. All you need to do to create a flipbook is to first prepare a PDF file. This should include all of the information that you want to present in flipbook format. Once you have created the PDF all you have to to is upload it to the software and click to convert. The basic process is usually free but you may find yourself having to pay for improved functionality.
You can create magazines and brochures of your content using this type of software. It’s a great way of getting your writing out there.
If you have a passion for writing, you should be able to share your creations with others, using any of these solutions. It does not have to cost you anything to do so and you can gradually build up a following for your work.
