Their Lost Blogs

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.

    You do realize that your judging will now likely take you just as long as it took to originally write the book, don’t you?

    Kevin – No. It will? Aw, shoot.

    You always have the option of drawing names out of a hat, and then claiming that the winners were not so much winners because of things like creativity and actual content… but “artistic merit.” How can anybody question “artistic merit?”

    I just pre-ordered the book. Can’t wait!

    Pauly D, me and my flatmate were discussing this over the weekend and are excited to do it, but aren’t sure about the historical figures just yet. My favorite was when she suggested Carol and Mike Brady and I pointed out that they aren’t real.

    Yes, I too had the same problem Sandra experienced. Art Vandalay is NOT a real person. It’s quite hard for me to distinguish between reality and tv sitcom characters.

    Carol and Mike Brady ARE real damn it! They were like my surrogate family. Pooh on it.

    It took me THREE DAYS to think of someone not already covered in your book. When Kevin sent me the list, all I could write in response (besides thank you) was “Damn . . . no wonder Pauly D’s book is thicker than mine.”

    What a cool idea to get the message out! Now why do they call it pre-ordering if you are ordering it. Wouldn’t it make more sense to call it pre-buying it?

    I am most definitely going to try this. I better win!!!!!

    (What a girl has to do to get a signed book from her favorite author and writer ever).
