Major confession: last year I couldn't go to sleep without checking Texts From Last Night first. It was a compulsion that I can't explain, but as soon as the hilarious website spread like wildfire over the internet, I was immediately hooked- as were all my friends.
The daily addiction happened again with Dealbreaker, the tongue-in-cheek phenom started by real couple Dave and Marisa, who realized that their own relationship no-go's were relatable enough to share with the masses online. Same with Awkward Family Photos, the blog that turns embarrassing Kodak moments into internet gold....well, you get the idea.
These sites are free and fun to look at online, but now publishers are hoping to turn them into print moneymakers by giving their creators book deals. Because most of the blogs thrive of reader-generated content and the fact that they're updated constantly (the cute dog Boo updates "his" Facebook multiple times a day), we're not sure how they'll fare sitting on a coffee table. But even despite these differences, let's face it: the blog-to-book trend isn't going anywhere soon.
