Creative: Eleven Great Books Written By Bloggers

Hello! How was your Christmassyness?! Did you have nice times? Are you rendered couch-bound due to too much food/drink/Great Aunty Mavis? Or are you chock full of spring in your step and ready to face a new year head on?

I’m pretty good. I did eat too much, but I’m going to work out and go for a big walk later too, in the hopes that I can zip my pants up again by week’s end. Today is my favourite day of the year, because the pressure is off, there’s still nearly a week until the next big celebratory day, and I have permission to do as I please.

Apart from the exercising and the pants-non-zipping, I’m going to watch telly and do some reading.  I thought you might want to do that too? And I thought I might suggest some books to browse, in a helpful way. These are not just any old books. They are blog to book success stories (that’s official marketing-speak!) Yowzers!

If you are an internetty type, you have probably clicked through to the blogs of these now bookish authors (see bottom of this post for links to each blog). I think it’s really great that publishers are scouting online for writers/bloggers with big readerships, great content and great work ethics. I love it when old school publishing and online publishing collide like this.  The results are often super great.

Did you know that I’m a bit of a blog to book success story myself….?! Click through and see my book and heaps more smarty-pants people like me. Here’s a gallery of bloggers’ books about all kinds of interesting things.  Go to it! Click!
