Penniless Parenting- The Book?

I've been hounded the past few days by some friends of mine who are trying to convince me to write a book- a paper and ink one. I'm still trying to decide if this is something worth pursuing, worth my time and worth the effort.
So, I'd like to hear from you, everyone.

Do you think I should write a book?
Do you think I have what it takes to write a book, whether that means the writing skills or the ideas?

If I'd write a book, do you think there would be much demand for it? Do you think many people would read the book and it would sell well?

Would you buy a book that I wrote about frugality?
Note- it would not just be previous posts spitted back out, printed and bound. Some things would be taken from the blog, edited majorly to make them fuller chapters, and put in a more logical, cohesive form. Then there would also be all the topics that I have not covered on the blog that would be included in the book. So no, the book and the blog would not be identical.

Lets say I wrote a book.
What things that I've covered on Penniless Parenting do you think should definitely be included in the book? What things do you think should be left out?
Are there any topics I have not yet covered on the blog that you think should definitely be included if I write a book?

Right now, I'm about 75% decided in favor of writing a book, but I really do want your feedback. I've started to hash out ideas for an outline, but I first wanted to hear from you.

I know, I'm asking you a lot of questions, but I'm really at a loss for what to do.

Please help me out here.

Thanks in advance!
