    How has Blogging Changed Writing and Publishing?

    Hyperbole and a Half. Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir. Humans of New York. Even Dog Shaming. All of these are blogs turned into books—although some are more successful than others. What makes for a successful transition from blog to book? How has this changed publishing (for better or worse)? Should prospective writers be writing in blogs, in the hopes of building an audience base and working towards a book deal? Or is this a fad that will play itself out?

    • This would be a great article I'd love to read. I'm sure lots of people on this site would like to know whether writing on a blog is worth it and if it would in fact get them and audience or book deal? Research the stories of the aforementioned blogs and rate how successful each was, why, and how they could have gotten more popular. Are they getting book deals or just self-publishing? What markets are being targeted? – Slaidey 5 years ago

    • I am interested in the relationship between creative and commercial endeavors when it comes to blogging, writing and publishing (particularly as a blogger and aspiring author myself). This subject material is definitely relevant and that's why I decided to comment on it -- intriguing stuff, for sure! – emich13 5 years ago

    • There are so many bloggers out there right now, that it does take a specific writer with a specific writing style who writes a specific topic in order to stand out. It's literally like trying to find a needle in a haystack or rather, a writer in a pile of writers. – kennylim 4 years ago

    Interesting thoughts here…I wonder if this argument follows the increasing number of Marvel/DC TV shows, or if those shows will allow for newer, more complex characters and perhaps more development of superheroes outside of these two powerhouse companies.

    Thanks for the article! This made me reconsider the ending, and how it made me uncomfortable (as did a lot of elements of the film) and how it may be because it pushes against the iconic American genre of the western.

    I agree-Skyler is a really interesting character that got a lot of undeserved hate. One of the best choices the show made (and I’m not sure if this was planned or if the writers decided to move her character in this direction) was to have Skyler be an excellent accountant. This totally explained some of her more “annoying” traits in the first season-being incredibly detail-oriented, for instance. Then, she was able to fit into Walt’s world in later seasons as she helped launder their money rather than acting purely as an obstacle for Walt.
