WaiterRant gets a bookdeal…more Internet fame
So yeah, just to follow up on my earlier post on the topic of internet fame – Waiter of the WaiterRant announced yesterday that he got a book deal off his blog. This guy has been one of the most successful bloggers around, yet succeeded in staying anonymous.
What strikes me funny about this is, about a year ago Waiter linked to another blog called Club Life, written by a NY club’s bouncer. Said blog immediately blew up huge because of the cross-over audience from Waiter. The Doorman (as he called himself for awhile) got a book deal a long time ago. But the blogger who really “made” him, the Waiter, only just now got a book deal.
I suspect the Waiter has been biding his time. I think he’s gotten several offers and is waiting on a good one, probably one that will protect his anonymity. In any case, congrats, Waiter! You earned it.
