Self Indulgent Question of the Week

Recently it has come to my attention that a few of my readers think this whole blogging thing might make a decent book. I have thought about this idea but I'm also scared to death of being rejected so I just shy away from the very thought and laugh it off. Gee thanks! But um... eek no! So the question of the week, while a tad self-indulgent, is this:

Would you read a book like this? Would you ACTUALLY buy a book based on this blog and compiled into story form?

Let me know....

    I am addicted to reading your blog. Honestly I think it is a sitcom sometimes (don't be mad). I think it would make an excellent book. The "chick book" for lack a better term is very big right now. If you don't mind your world being laid out to the whole world I say go for it!

    Vicky, I totally think you should!
    WHo cares about the rejection at least you tried. Was down at Meg L's this past weekend and saw Alica and Jen Gathman and we were saying what a great writer you ar and how great this is! I totally think you should do it! It's an honest account of what you are going through and what many Moms go through and I think others would enjoy reading and relate well to this....so I say why not? What do you have to lose?
    And one day when you are on the Today show promoting the book ...i can say I knew her when :)
    Luv ya honey!

    Well, I haven't had much time to look through all of your posts, but from what I have seen, I think your writing is very amusing, and pretty clever. Your fascination with Lord Vader cracks me up. Anyway, based upon what I have read thus far, I would totally read your book, and I know that Debbie would read it as well. I think you should develop a plan of action, and get the ball rolling. The current marketplace is turbo-hot for this kind of stuff...what's the word...zeitgeist?

    I'f I were a mom I would find this very helpful. I like it and I'm single. I think you could hit both markets and make lots of money. Just do it dude!

    Hi Vic,

    Long time no see, and say Hi to Dom & the new baby. I do read your blog. I'm told it was 125 degrees in the Dessert today... remember the desert? Thank God I'm not there now, I'm in LA now, but I still miss you. And yes, I do think there is a good book in all of us. Why not!

    I am back in PR, so let me know when you do write it. I know tricks about web site optimization and online PR. :) I may be able to help!

  6. I totally would buy anything you wrote! But that does leave me with one disturbing question....If you switch to write a book, don't you sorta have to stop the daily "free" postings so as to get people to pay money for your thoughts? And I'm not sure I could handle the withdrawal of not reading you every day..... Love you!! Diane
