Blogger Lands $300,000 Book Advance

Filed as News on April 3, 2008 1:49 am

Now that’s a nice contract! The blogger behind Stuff White People Like, Christian Lander, is said to have gotten a $300,000 advance from publisher Random House. That’s a lot of money, and not only for a book spawned by a blog.

This and more in an interesting piece over at the New York Times. It is worth a read to get your hopes up. Via.
