Morning Brief — April 29, 2008
ReadWriteWeb posts about how best to Digg stories. (Yes, there’s a technique that includes leaving out references to individual sites — we may all know what Gawker is, but does the rest of the world? — submitting to unusual categories and submitting often so your votes count more.)
For those of you who don’t follow the daily book section blogs (Boston Globe, DMN, Sun-Sentinel, LAT, NYT, WaPo, etc.), I encourage you to do so — you can find the links to these sites on my blogroll. Today, Paper Cuts, one of the NYT’s book blogs, featured “outtakes” from Dave Itzkoff’s Sunday Styles profile with Keith Gessen. Off the Shelf (the Globe’s book blog) and Texas Pages (the Dallas Morning News’ blog) always list local author events and the latter often runs excerpts of books that are reviewed in the print edition. Of course, with the LAT Book Fest this weekend, the folks over at Jacket Copy, the LAT book blog, were working overtime. Long story short, there’s a ton of original content on these blogs that you won’t want to miss. I haven’t had time to investigate all the papers that might also have book blogs, so if anyone would like to contribute other book section blogs for my edification, please, you know, feel free to let me know.
