Great little book, for newbies or veterans alike

I have maintained my blog at [...] for over four years now, so I can tell you it doesn't matter if you've been a blogger for a while: you will find this book useful. It should be noted, like other reviewers have pointed out, that it's not just about blogging (though some of the tips offered pretty much are ideal for a blog as a content vehicle). The book offers the reader 100 ideas to avoid "me-too syndrome" as the author puts it. The result, cleverly conveyed by the title, is broken down into sections, from ideas that will take the blogger fifteen minutes to write about, all the way to involved projects that will take time to gather and publish. There were so many useful ideas to deal with writer's block in this great little book that I found myself earmarking more than half the pages to make sure I go back to them over time. Whether you are new to blogging or have been doing it for a while, "No One Cares What You Had for Lunch" is an amazing book that will do wonders for you.

New blogger finds much needed help

I am fairly new to the whole blogging thing, so this book couldn't have come at a better time. It's an easy and fun read and has convinced me to let down my guard a bit, not to mention provided me with some great leads. I would recommend this book to anyone -- seasoned blogger or novice like me.

Beyond just's all about creative communication

I just finished this book, and highly recommend it (but not for the reasons you'd expect, more on that in a bit.) First of all, this book is fast and fun to read: the author's personality shines through...Margaret is funny, offbeat, down-to-earth and has an heartfelt mission to save the Web from boring and crappy posts. Hear, hear! But 'tho the book's focus is on the blogosphere, I found that the ideas are wonderfully applicable to all personal writings...journals, essays, letters to friends and family, scrapbooking. Whether you're putting your ideas and experiences online or on paper, these 100 arrows point you to creative communication and *great* writing...because they get at what makes you, you. That's why I got a copy for my mom...she doesn't blog, but she'll love the book for other reasons!


Have you ever suffered from writer's block? Nevermore. This book gives you scrumptious ideas to get your creative juices flowing, from telling the story behind your favorite photo, to seeking out unusual opportunities and just doing them! A delectable read chockoblock full of easy to implement ideas. I love it!

Even old dogs can learn some new tricks here...

OK... I'm a sucker for an unusual title, and this one grabbed my attention right off... No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog by Margaret Mason. While it may not be a techie's idea of blog inspiration, it was a fun read that *did* spur some ideas for me... Contents: Fifteen Minutes to Fame; Thirty Minutes Away from the TV; An Hour at the Screen; Take Your Time; Think Like a Writer; Index; About the Author Mason is thrilled at the opportunities that blogs have given the average person for self-expression, but laments that too many blogs are obsessive navel-gazing exercises that hold little to no interest over time. She wrote No One Cares as a way to help you come up with creative and new ideas for blog material that can lead to unusual material and interesting insights to the life and world of the writer. Each idea takes just a single page (a few "long" ones take two pages) and throws out a suggestion that you can use to spur the creative juices. For instance, if you kept a diary growing up, you might want to use some of those pages as a glimpse into your past. Your youthful angst *can* be laughed at now... Perhaps you have some "inside knowledge" of the place/city you live... Share it with your readers. Or one that I could take advice from... "Get Defensive". Take a stand on something you like that goes against conventional wisdom, and proudly show your colors. While not every idea will resonate with all bloggers, there should be something in here to push you in a direction you hadn't considered. For those who are blogging technical information with no personal color, bypass this book. You probably won't "get it". Better yet, try coming out of your shell and show your readers a bit of yourself. While some people can't do that for legal or professional reasons, it's far too often used as a dodge to avoid your readers. For those who *do* mix personal and technical life on their blog, this is a fun read that could help you connect (or re-connect) with your audience... And now if I do something totally new on my blog, you'll know where I stole the ideas from... :)
