Blogging Book

My librarianism (or should that be librariantitis, neither are real words, I know) kicked in last night when I was watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He was interviewing Arianna Huffington about the new book that her editors put out about blogging.

My first thought was; I wonder if my blogging pals have seen this? Not, ohhhh, I want that! Or Me likey! Or we must have that for the library then it will have to go missing in my office! Nope, I thought of all of you first. I’m like that (HA!)

So no matter what you think of Jon Stewart (only interesting news source out there. I’m just saying….) or of Arianna Huffington and the Huffington Post (I love listening to her accent and watching her body language. She’s strangely kinetic) the book sounds interesting.

I couldn’t find the video on You Tube this morning and the Daily Show website wasn’t sharing. (not sharing should be a crime. Do any of you think Barack would take up this cause? I bet Congress would since they are all about petty b*llsh*t these days. Some of those lazy asses should be shot then pissed on. Whoops! Did I say that?)

Anyway, The Huffingtonpost let me email the video to myself.

Here is the Amazon link if you want that also.

The Huffington Post Complete Guide to Blogging (Paperback) by The editors of the Huffington Post (author), Arianna Huffington (forward).

I think this will be going on my Christmas list.




  1. Wow. How kind you are to think of us first!! :)

  2. Cool, I'm going to check that out! I still have last night's show tivo'd. It's on my to-do list.

  3. I can't believe I missed an interview about a blog book! I will have to come back and watch that video when I'm not "on the job"!

  4. Thanks! Oh, by the and I are going to get to meet Kath!


  5. omfg!!! That cracked me up.

    First of all, let me just say what a pain in the ass it was to find that video, because it won't play from your link to us filthy Canadians!! Seriously, it gives us a link to TheComedyNetwork, and in nicer words tells us piss up a rope.
    "Blog about the recession! You just lost your job? You have time to blog!!"
    That's GOLDEN right there!
    I might have to steal this.

  6. Sher: Steal away baby! I love Arianna.

  7. I was watching Jon & Ariana and thinking the same thing! Have you bought the book? Will you?!
