What can you lose? There are free options. It could be a learning experience. You may find you are good at it. Success!
There are things I find I cannot learn. Maybe they just do not interest me enough to put in the time. Maybe it takes away from what I really love doing. Publishing may not meet the goal for money? The turn around time may not be fast enough. Why put yourself out for all to see and comment on your creativity. Bloggng gives you a chance to build an audience. Or not.
My blog, narcissus,hibiscus,mandrake started out with my complete unpublished book, one poem a day. I decided it was better to give it free. It might build a poetry reading audience. The stats look like a mouthful of teeth and many, many spaces
My poetry did not draw as strong a following as this blog. The followers were faithful and interested. But were there enough to support an eBook? Evaluating these stats may help in making a publishing decision. Have I taken advantage of free or low cost pre-publishing tutorials?
Do I have the best material? Have I edited the manuscript with a fine red pen?
Can I drive interest toward my work? Does it fill a niche of interest? Timing is paramount.
