    I have a (true) story that I've been wanting to publish once it's finished (either eBook or print). Now I'm thinking it would make a good blog, and I could combine it with something else I've been wanting to make a blog about.

    Done right, I'd probably have a higher chance of success with the blog and if the figures are right I could make money that way as well. Plus, by chopping up the story it would give me enough content for a while until I can launch the rest.
    So, for those with experience in either or both, what are your thoughts?

    Publishing on the blog is not mutually exclusive with publishing in print/eBook.
    After a couple years of posting on RoadToForbes,
    I got REQUESTS to put the posts in eBook format
    (didn't end up doing that and the site now no longer exists).

    However, more and more publishers are considering web/blog postings
    to be "published"
    which means that if they're interested in solely primary rights,
    they'll give the book a pass.

    I'm sorry, could you clarify a bit?

    I'm confused.
    What do you need clarification on?

    Basically, I'm saying that you could do both,
    pending on the publisher you target.

    Blog: easier, faster; subject to fluctuation, takes time to build traffic --> revenue
    Publish: long process, subject to fluctuation; revenue?

    Signs point more towards blog. I also think that what i have in mind might work better as a blog.
