I’m told that a Gawker editor is currently shopping a memoir about life before blogging—the details are sketchy at this time, but what little I’ve heard about the query making the rounds is that the career discussed is somewhat more sordid and dramatic than sitting at a computer churning out blog posts. (And thank God for that: As a professional blogger myself, I can assure you that there are few potential memoir hooks less entertaining.) No idea if it’s any good yet, but a talent roster that can produce novelists like Elizabeth Spiers and Emily Gould can probably provide a decent memoirist as well. We’ll probably be coming back to this story again soon…
