Weblogging Writing

Essential blogging—review

The Essential Blogging book is now available for public review at O’Reilly Network.

The book was edited by Nat Torkington and authored by Rael DornfestCory DoctorowJ. Scott JohnsonBejamin TrottMena Trott, and myself. In case you’re curious, I wrote the Blogger chapters.

Essential Blogging covers basic weblogging technology and concepts, as well as specific weblogging tools: Userland’s Radio, Blogger, Movable Type, and Blosxon.

In addition to the public review, you can also add your input to the book. Rael Dornfest has put out a request for contributions for Chapter 15 — Blogging Voices.

Have something to say? Of course you do; you’re a weblogger. You have to gag us to shut us up. Well, here’s your chance to get your words in an O’Reilly book.

Nat’s also looking for suggestions for the critter to feature on the book cover. Silly boy. We all know what animal to put on the cover of a weblogging book, don’t we? Update: O’Reilly went with a picture of a Meerkat.
