Blogging In the Publishing Industry

I have chosen a topic from the list previously posted: I will be doing my class project on how blogging is used by literary agents as a professional business tool.  This was one of my original ideas for my project.  Since then I have done a little bit more research, and  I am going to try to expand upon this idea to also include how publishing houses employ blogs to promote their business.  Hopefully this will not make the project too broad, but we will see.

Some of the specific details I am hoping to look into include the following:

  • How blogs help literary agents find perspective authors
  • How blogs help publishing houses to get feedback from their reading audience
  • How blogs provide a relatively cheep way for publishing houses to have their books advertised and reviewed

These are just a few of the starting points that I have come up with.  Hopefully the project will come together more as it goes along.

  1. Good start. The plan needs a little more detail about how you’re going to progress week by week , but being open-ended with it is good.
