I have responded on the LinkedIn Discussion: " How to write a book or blog ” initiated by professional blogger Greg Schulz. And I have got the following excellent advises I am going to follow:
"Igor with all of your white papers and posts, you probably have a good basis for a book or ebook. Likewise, in the course of doing a book project, there tends to be a lot of content that ends up on the "cutting room floor" that makes for future blogs posts, articles, tips, etc.
Sounds like a good theme topic for a book, particular if you took an angle of "...past, present and future...". The idea of the past, present and future is to discuss how statistical and empirical measurements have evolved, are being used and will continue to be important in the future. After all, you (or your cloud provider) cannot effectively manage what they do not have insight or awareness into. Hence the importance and role of statistical and empirical analysis.
Of course, you can play the buzzword bingo game angle by working in how big data and hadoop tie into the supporting statistical analysis. Try an experiment assuming that you have stats enabled for your websites, which is look at normal traffic patterns. Then do a post with a title along the lines of "statistical monitoring with big data" and see what changes in traffic patterns occur.
I have one primary blog (e.g. http://storageioblog.com ) where either most of my material goes initially or as a follow-up to items that appear elsewhere. Now that I think about it, I guess I do have other blogs that either pick up my feeds automatically, or that I periodic visit and quickly cross post if wordpress friendly. There are also a bunch of other sites where articles, topics, pod casts, videos or guest posts appear in addition to those that syndicate my blog feed (e.g. via http://storageioblog.com/RSSfull.xml orhttp://storageioblog.com/RSSfullArchive.xml ).
My RSS feeds are free to anyone to use as long as they retain links that are in the post maintain attributions and copyrights do not insert content or posts from others in-line of a post, or otherwise change the content context. Likewise, sites are free to use excerpts as long as they attribute back to the source and preserve copyrights including if/when put into creative commons...."
