Foiled Again

Says a report in The Boston Herald: "Bloggers, buoyed by site meter numbers and Internet buzz, were the darling of the publishing world about two years ago. But when books hit the shelves, sales fizzled, and now it takes a lot more than a laptop and a blogspot account to make it onto Amazon’s top 100."

It goes on to quote literary agent Jill Kneerim: “A book has to be bigger and last longer than a blog. It has to be more than gossiping or talking about yourself.”



  • But makes sense, don't you think? A blog is like a TV serial, a book like a film.
