Hey, How’d You Do That Julie Powell?

JuliePowell810.jpgAndrea K. Hammer interviewed Julie Powell (the Julie in Julia and Julia) for Mediabistro’s Hey How’d You Do That section:

When did you have a sense that the blog was gaining mainstream attention, and what chord do you think it struck that made it this incredible success?

It bears repeating over and over again: The fact that I started when I did, during the infancy of this medium, was part of my luck. It was a much smaller world out there. It was easier for people to find one another and to see what was going on and to take a survey of the “blogosphere” at the time. It’s the Big Bang Theory; it started from this little point, and it’s been expanding ever since. Now, there are millions and millions of blogs in uncharted waters. Back in the day, it was a comparatively small pond. So, in that way, I was very lucky.
