[ 0 ] September 8, 2014 |

Over 30 Million people in the United States are publishing their own blog on a weekly basis. genConnect met up with Ali Eteraz at #BlogHer2014 where he explained just how far you can take your online publishing.

“I actually got my start writing when I was a lawyer in manhattan, I started blogging. As I wrote and shared some of the things I had written in the past, it just expanded for me. The World expanded for me.”

WATCH as Ali Eteraz, author of the critically acclaimed memoir Children of Dust, shares his inspiring story of how blogging can take you to new heights.

“Other bloggers gave me confidence,” Eteraz says. “People were inspired by my blog. I feel very lucky.”

Although there is increasingly more blogs online–if you’re passionate about what you’re writing about, Eteraz thinks you can succeed. “There’s a lot of wait and patience in the publishing world.” “If I could give something back… [I’d share my] support and optimism.” At the end of the day, your blog can only be as good as you want it to be.
