Biz Stone’s “Who Let the Blogs out?”

Just finished Biz Stone’s wonderful book on Blogging: Who Let the Blogs Out? : A Hyperconnected Peek at the World of Weblogs. This is one book every aspiring blogger and anyone curious about blogging should check out. Biz talks candidly about his personal experiences with blogging, his initial experiments at Xanga and how they led him to the prestigious post of Senior Specialist for Blogging at Google. He also takes us back in history and recounts the evolution of the blogosphere with an almost novel-like excitement. Filled with common-sense tips on topics like pseudonymity, terms of use, privacy, etiquette and linking, it is written in a warm personal tone and can infect even the non-believer with the blogging bug. He provides additional encouragement with tips for using blogs in business and with stories of people who made it big from their blogs, like the author of Belle de Jour: Diary of a London Call Girl who got a book deal from her blog.

  1. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  2. This seems like a great book! Thanks for pointing it out.

    Personally, I like blogging because I am given the opportunity to join the conversation and express my own thoughts. I look forward to reading the book.

    Take care,
    Chris
