Blogs To Books

By February 20, 2013

Follow me on:

I was flipping through a copy of The Oatmeal's very funny new book, How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You, and it got me thinking about blogs that have gotten book deals.  There are honestly too many to count, though among the throngs there are certainly some stand-outs.

It's obvious why a blogger would want to write a book; anyone who enjoys blogging clearly enjoys attention writing, after all, but why are publishers looking to create books based on blogs?  The answer is pretty simple, and you can read my theory about that subject here.  Spoiler alert: As with just about anything else in business, it all comes down to the Benjamins.

Ben Franklin funny

No, not that kind of Benjamin.  Come to think of it, I found this photo on a site called tackytouristphotos.  I wonder if they have a book deal yet?  If not, I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
