How to get published in 2010

Want my advice? Set up a blog or website that has people logging on in their droves. Let me give you some examples:

First off, there's Emails from Crazy People, a collection of such complete and utter madness that you can't help wish that you could write stuff as funny.
Then there's Angry People in Local Newspapers that highlights and champions the unsung photographers who spend their entire working lives taking drearily unchallenging photos.

These are the kinds of blogs and websites that go on to become hugely successful books in due course, just as Cake Wrecks and Awkward Family Photos and Grandma's Dead have done recently. With the publishing industry being so tippy-toe about the future, it's a surefire way of getting your project noticed. So get blogging I say.

If only I had a good idea ...
