AuctionBytes Featured in Blogging Heroes

By: Ina Steiner

The new Wiley book "Blogging Heroes" features interviews with 30 bloggers, and the AuctionBytes Blog is one. It's exciting to be included with some great folks, including Steve Garfield, who is also from Boston and has been video blogging for years to some acclaim.

I saw Steve at Podcamp Boston on Saturday (he was one of the sponsors, thanks Steve!) and also ran into John Wall, who produces The M Show. As it happens, John's wife Carin is a friend of David's sister Kim, and Carin and John are neighbors of ours. (Their dog and Maggie are buddies.) Here's a photo  John took at Podcamp.

It's a small world, and speaking of that - the author of Blogging Heroes is the incomparable Michael A. Banks who contributes to AuctionBytes newsletters. Wiley and Michael are letting each featured blogger post his chapter on his own blog. You can find the link to the AuctionBytes chapter in PDF format right under the book cover in the margin, and clicking on the book cover brings you to the Amazon order page.

The interview profiles the birth of the AuctionBytes blog, our basic philosophy in publishing it, and even about how I feel about eBay's Chatter blog. I hope you find it interesting. I've already ordered a copy of the book so I can read more about bloggers like the writer from Boing Boing.

By the way, here's what the cover almost looked like (it's a prototype).
