A local blogging milestone !

A milestone for local blogger Bryan Scott, aka Winnipeg: Love & Hate. He has recently announced that he has a 300 page book coming out ! As far as I know that's the first time a local blogger has produced a dead-tree version of their virtual world !

Bryan's unique work takes those everyday places in our city
(and now include places beyond the 'Peg) and gives them a whole new perspective.

WL&H goes back to January 2008 and this Spring was crowned "Best Local Blog" in the Uptown Readers' Choice Awards.

More news about the upcoming book can be found at the website on his Facebook page.

Will look for the book when it comes out.

I just read though that another blogger from Winnipeg has a book out based on their work. I can't for the life remember who though.

Anyone know?

I believe Graham from Progressive Winnipeg is looking to publish a collection of his work. This is all very exciting.

Having had a sneak peak at a low-res version of Bryan's book, I can tell you (and this will come as a surprise to no one) that it will not disappoint.

The *cough cough* forward was *cough* well written, too, I thought...
