Comic Relief to earn income from bloggers' stories

Howard Lake | 21 March 2007 | News

Comic Relief’s engagement this year with social networking and web 2.0 developments has paid off in a number of ways. For example, 100 British bloggers have contributed to a book “Shaggy Blog Stories: a collection of amusing tales from the UK blogosphere” which will raise funds for Comic Relief.

According to Steve Bridger at nfp2.0, the book was put together in just seven days.

Contributors include Richard Herring, Andrew Collins (BBC 6Music), Emma Kennedy, James Henry (Channel 4’s “Green Wing”), Abby Lee (Girl With A One-Track Mind), Catherine Sanderson (Petite Anglaise), Zoe McCarthy (My Boyfriend Is A Twat), novelist David Belbin, Anna Pickard (The Guardian), and “a diverse selection of some of the UK’s most talented bloggers”.
