I blogged. Someone read it. Someone else read it. Someone else passed it on. The political bloggers linked to me and the world went mad. I blogged some more. Someone read it. Someone liked it. Someone passed it on. A publisher e-mailed me. A book was mentioned. Money was mentioned. I tucked my skirt into my knickers, said "Ok then" and looked for hidden cameras.The Sunday Times reports how Judith O'Reilly started her blog, Wife in the North, following a move to Northumberland with her family, and how she was discovered by Viking Penguin and offered a lucrative publishing contract. 'Tis the stuff of dreams!
And I particularly like this:
My book deal isn't so much about money, it is more to do with the fact that blogging is a force to be reckoned with. Ultimately blogging is people willing to commit time, effort and emotion. How cool is that?
