So Julie Powell blogs her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and gets a book AND movie deal out of it?
Obviously, I'm not taking this whole blog thing seriously enough.
OK, if food blogs are so damned popular, here are a few ideas to drum up business here at the decidedly moribund Velvet Blog:
1) The Jim/Julie Project. Blogging my way through Powell's blog blogging her way through Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Surely this would get picked by Boing Boing or something, right?
2) The Jim/Jello Project. Blogging my way through The Joys of Jello over the course of a year. No, wait... a month.
3) The Jim/Cirrhosis of the Liver Project. Blogging my way through Trader Vic's Bartender's Guide over the course of a month. No, wait... a week.
I smell a book contract. Or, perhaps, a liver transplant.
