What's the point of putting chanpters up on the internet if your going to publish them in a book? I never understood that
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

There sure are a lot of haters out there. I really enjoy your blog. I think it's well written and a fun read.

The blog deal came first.

Although it's also an effective advertising tool.

So the blog is a paid gig? Or the blog came first then the idea for the book came out of that? How much do you get for writing a book these days anyway? I got some ideas for books, but I'm not a very good writer.

As I recently took a share of the blog network, I can say that he gets paid very well for his work.

Edit: In terms of internet writing at least.

2nd Edit: I can also say that he needs to earn his money and check his email or pm box and send over the new chapter already.

What's the blog network? So you get paid for content, like just putting stuff up on your blog? What pays the bills, adds? How to I get in on the action! Inquireing minds and all that....

Dude, I tried to get you in when they first launched.  You were all like "no thanks I have better things to do"

Each blogger has a different contract, depending on various factors like IP rights and popularity.  The network owns a portion of the publishing rights for most of the blogs (including the two that are getting ready to launch).  Advertisements also bring in a decent income stream.
