Blogging about blogging
It's called Blogging Heroes: Interviews with 30 of the World's Top Bloggers. And I am honored to be one of those 30 folks profiled by author Michael Banks. I feel especially honored given the other interviewees he chose for the book -- everyone from Wired's Chris Anderson, to LifeHacker's Gina Trapani, to TechDirt's Mike Masnick.

Banks asked all of us for details on how we got into blogging, how we choose our subjects and more. He then compiled the advice into handy how-to format so that the take-aways would be useful to other bloggers in any field.

I like that Banks mixed up the kinds of folks he interviewed for the book. It's not all bloggers who write about technology; there are also bloggers specializing in everything from auctions, to music.

Banks and his publisher John Wiley & Sons (also the publisher for my upcoming book Microsoft 2.0: How Microsoft Plans to Stay Relevant in the Post-Gates Era) gave the interviewees their respective chapters for posting to our sites. This is my chapter in Blogging Heroes.
