Today is a little milestone in Irish blogging.
A book, Homepages, has been published today that is written by fifty Irish bloggers as a combined effort in aid of charity.
Catherine Brodigan is the person behind this effort and she has done a Trojan job, coordinating the whole project and compiling the final work. Fair play to ya, Catherine.
Her description of the book:
Homepages is a unique collection of stories and photographs, the first of its kind in Ireland. The nation’s best bloggers hold forth on the theme of “home”, covering everything from pets and expat life to parenting and the Kellogg’s Variety Pack. By turns hilarious, heartbreaking and thought-provoking, it promises a captivating read and showcases some of Ireland’s best undiscovered writing talent.
All proceeds from the sale of this book, compiled on an entirely voluntary basis, go directly to Focus Ireland, who provide services and support for people who are homeless across Ireland.
So how do you buy the book?
It’s available online at Lulu on a print on demand basis for a mere €14, so get your arses over there and buy a copy. It is a very worthy cause.
