Margaret Mason, Authoress

13th July 2006

Hey everybody, I just wrote a book! It’s called:

No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog

Are you astounded, my friends? I am totally a book writer. When people ask what I do, I can be all, “Oh, me? I’m a writer,” and then take a sip of my sophisticated cocktail. Then I can squeal and jump up and down, and maybe do a little touchdown-type dance of some sort.

Anyway, as you may have discerned from the title, my book is a writing prompt book for bloggers. It contains 100 ideas that will help you post. Ideas that will make you feel like feeding the Web with your sugary wit until it grows ponderous and bloated.

If you don’t have a blog, I respectfully request that you start one immediately. If you decide against that course of action, consider purchasing thirty or forty copies of the book for your friends who do blog. They will totally love it.

No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog is out in August, but you can pre-order your copies here and I will sign them for you. I will sign them “EEEeeee! Love, Maggie”

    Okay, I’ve been reading your blog for over a year now–actually I’ve been reading a lot of blogs–and so I just threw caution to the wind and ordered your book because darn it this time I am going to start me own blog! Really, I mean it! Soon as I read your book..:) No seriously I suddenly felt inspired–thanks!

    Caution to the wind, I ordered me a copy! (if you want a little more for the international shipping, yeah sorry, I’m in Blighty… let me know where to paypal the moollah!)

    Alright, Ms. Mason…I have purchased your book, and I am thoroughly looking forward to many nights lying in bed reading/laughing/snorting simultaneously.

  4. Valerie

    I’ve been lurking for a while now. Thought I’d surface to say that I really enjoy your blog, I link to it from my own, and of course I bought your book.

    I hope you have your dark glasses and head scarf at the ready for the blogging paparazzi that are sure to start following you…

    Congratulations! I love the cover. That little French fry tray with fork (spork?) looks like it was ordered up straight from Berlin.

  7. Amber

    I want to be the bastard who one-ups everyone else in the comments by saying, I just bought two copies! Two! Suckers. Yes, I have been known to mention a sandwich now and again. I need all the help I can get.

    Thanks, Maggie. Looking forward to reading it.

    this is in absolutely no way meant to be any sort of slam on your or your book or it’s idea (congratulations to you!!!!), but if i ever need to consult a book for an idea about what to blog, something has gone terribly, terribly wrong. like, my brain has been erased by aliens or something. what i need is a book to help me writea book. got one of those up your sleeve?

    EeeeEEE! to you, there Maggie.

    I love your site, particularly your ability to place syllables in a pleasing order. Thanks for the good times and keep in touch over the summer!

    BFF 8) lol and other such things that girls write in yearbooks…

    I will order your book because I love how-to books. You could have written a book of ideas for 59 kinds of pipe-cleaner Christmas ornaments and I would read it.

    Though I expect to actually use your book, I think I love knowing that I have a skill set for any number of activities, whether I will ever use those skills or not. What else can you teach? Knot-tying? Basket weaving? Tap dancing? Bring on the knowledge, Maggie.

    Oh, I almost forgot. August is my birthday, so it will be my birthday present to myself. The Birthday song would be totally appropriate as my inscription. And, just for you, I will keep my dogs from eating it like they did my last signed book.

    I’ll take 1 please. Your cousins will each take one each too. They can pay for their own. They make more money than I do.
    Can you dedicate mine; To my favorite auntie Yolanda.
    After all you don’t have another favorite auntie Yolanda but you do have favorite auntie Raina.
    Hasta luego

    I visit your site often and I’m so delighted that you’ve written this book. You see, I’m an aspiring blogger and can’t wait to awe my reader (hoping to have one soon) with marvelous witty anecdotes. Could you please draw a little heart over the letter “i” in your name when you sign my copy? It would make me smile. Congratulations to you!!

    Sincerely,
    your fan *wink*

    Congratulations, Maggie!!! I am going to go order a copy. Can’t wait! I expect my blog readership to go from 3 readers a day to 6!!! Can you imagine? A half a dozen readers! I would be, like, totally awesome.

    Thank you!
    :-)

    I like how you said “I just wrote a book!” like you did it in an evening…
