MacLeod's hugely popular blog, gapingvoid, is now 10 years old. It enabled him to meet his girlfriend, his business partners, and all of his clients; in short, his blog gave him freedom. This book is a heartfelt meditation on the infinite freedom that the Internet offers.
From the Publisher:
This is a book about freedom. Specifically the personal freedom I discovered from the wonderful world of blogging, the freedom I hope everybody will eventually discover for themselves. The freedom that, I believe, will permanently and irrevocably change the world for the better. Having a blog, a voice, having my own media, utterly changed my life. Suddenly my career as a cartoonist wasn't dependent on other people: "The Gatekeepers"--publishers, editors, Hollywood executives, etc., etc. Sud-denly I had direct contact with my audience. They had direct contact with me. I could just do my thing, without having to wait for some-body else to give me the "green light." I didn't have to wait around for somebody else to deem me "worthy." This was the freedom I spent most of my adult life searching for, the same freedom I believe we're ALL searching for, in one way or another. Careerwise, blogging gave me everything. Even in the early days, the ben-efits of blogging were so glaringly obvious to me, I couldn't understand why more people weren't doing it. Ten years later, I still can't. So I decided to write a book about it; maybe I can help other people find this freedom, too.--Hugh
