Blogs and books

Another Guardian article, this time about books that have come from blogs!

The article reports on the "Blooker" prize, which awards online writers who become mainstream successes. The winner, Julie Powell, had this to say about blogging....

"Powell credits blogging with kick-starting her writing career. "I had no idea what a blog was a week before I began," she told the Guardian. "The medium really liberated me and motivated me to do the work and not obsess over the details. The community aspect of blogging and the interaction with others kept me honest, kept me writing and kept me from sinking into my habitual self-loathing."
