Book Review - Never Threaten To Eat Your Co-Workers - Best Of Blogs
If you're a blogger and enjoy the act of expressing your views and emotions online, you'll enjoy Never Threaten To Eat Your Co-Workers - Best Of Blogs (Apress). This collection of blog entries edited by Alan Graham and Bonnie Burton is a fun look at various blogs and bloggers that range from the well-known to the obscure. On one end you have a few blog entries by Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher of Star Trek: TNG fame). On the other end might be Ali Davis, the writer for True Porn Clerk Stories (she is a clerk in a video porn shop and writes about her experiences). The format is pretty simple... random samplings of some of their blog entries, along with short interviews asking about their motivation behind blogging and their views on the concept.
Some of the entries may have you laughing to tears ("Dear Cranky Old Bitch") and some will make you think ("Clutching For Answers In Baghdad"), but all them will reflect the person behind the keyboard, no matter how quirky and real they may be. And in the interviews with the writers, you'll most likely see yourself, a fellow blogger who is sharing a small part of themselves with the world.
