I have about 10 blog posts and I would like to create an eBook from them. I am not sure if this is a bad or good idea.

Yes, it is possible to do that. As for this being a good idea or not all depends on what your trying to do. If your trying to build up your rep/and or build a brand than I would go for it. You can do this by selling it for cheap or giving it away for free with links back to your site which could help bring in some more traffic to your website. I personally would give it away to increase traffic so you could increase your sales or any other type of revenue generation you are using on your site. You could even go a step further and contact other websites or blogs in your niche and let them give it away to their visitors to help increase your traffic. In the end it all depends on what you want to do and what your goals are.

Of course it's a good idea. I try to turn as many of my blog posts into PDF's. Usually just give them away as a download link at the end of the post. Get's more downloads and get's my stuff out there more. Course I add links and such. Nothing wrong with using them to build a list.

I've seen a couple of plugin's that will do it, though I can't remember their names right this moment. But the last one I used was just okay.

Honestly, the best bet, is just copy and paste your posts in to Word or Open Office and create a PDF. That way you can dress them up, add header, footer, links, ect. Most plug-ins or automation will probably not be that customizable, least not if your doing them in batches, and not per post.

I usually write all my blog posts in Word to begin with. Better grammar/spelling checker. Copy and paste into wordpress. Then I have a copy and can easily turn them into PDF's.

Just a thought :)

I think it's a great idea, it's what I did in the beginning just giving the pdf away to drive traffic to my content and then eventually to my first e-book which contained more unique content hand written by me for premium members of my site.

But I agree about trying to just sell junk that someone can simply Google. Make it stand out and bring traffic to your website.
