I had a good time this weekend looking at some pretty silly blogs...and guess what. they are ones that have landed big book deals with publishers. So don't scoff. These blog authors are laughing themselves all the way to the bank. The kicker is that most of them get their content from blog readers...they don't even write original stuff.
Thanks to this NY Times article, I had a few chuckles with these sites:
- Postcards From Yo Momma
- This Is Why You’re Fat
- I Can Has Cheezburger?
- Stuff White People Like
- Pets Who Want to Kill Themselves
Apparently certain themes attract millions of eyeballs and publishers are betting they will love the material so much they'll shell out a few bucks to buy a printed book. Who says we're in a recession?
