Seems that The Lost Blogs has it’s own grass roots campaign.
Much like the whales and um, a bunch of other grass-rooty guys — WFME pal Kevin has organized (on his own) his own way to get the word out about The Lost Blogs by challenging bloggers to write blogs “as written” by historical folk during the week of April 10-14th.
“…Paul’s second book, The Lost Blogs: From Jesus to Jim Morrison, is due to be released to the book-whoring public on May 8, 2006 (you can preorder it from Amazon.com, among other online booksellers now). The book covers how blogs by some of the most famous people in the world might read. It really is an interesting concept and in an attempt to help get word out about this book, I am proposing that we, as Pauly’s fellow bloggers, readers, and fans, start our own pseudo-celebrity blogs…”
Having stumbled upon Kevin’s plans last week I was both flattered and appreciative and decided to throw some schwag into the mix, offering up first-edition signed copies of the book to the Top 3 Best Historical Blogs (as judged by me) that are written during what I’m calling “Kevin’s Week ‘o Grass Roots Kind of Stuff”.
So, if you’re interested and want to participate, check out the rules and be a part of history that never was.
