Booking the Blog
The most famous Blog of all-the Baghdad Blogger having been featured in a book is now to be made into a film. A number of local bloggees have enquired if Huttonian has similar plans for Musings from The Merse. A film is a bit premature but a slim volume of extracts, nicely illustrated is a thought. Local artists aplenty as a visit to the Paxton Painters Exhibition at Paxton House will demonstrate. (Incidentally hurry if you have not seen it-closes early in June) Perhaps one of these talented people could be persuaded to do a few appropriate drawings for a book. One would need to be careful about what extracts to use so as to avoid any further umbrage but I am sure a tasteful and non controversial collection could be put together from the voluminous material around. Some one (or some two) have gone to enormous trouble to print off a number of copies of the entire original blog. In consequence the website is enjoying a number of 'hits' from a growing audience of new viewers and the consequential publicity would be most helpful if a book is ever to be written. Huttonian could of course use photographs but one or two of the earlier ones caused some (unintentional)irritation so it would not be right to reopen old wounds.
