We’re not talkin’ “Daddy Warbucks” yet, but… One can hope, and you can help! –> My Songs and Books From the Rachel Maddow Show is a Chart Rocket!
My New Article Books and Songs from the Rachel Maddow Show is a “Chart Rocket”!!!!
Ok, folks, something really cool is going on — I have a chance at a real, honest to goodness, money-making article! Woot! Yeeeeeeeee haaawwwwwwww!!!!!!
Those who have followed my posts here know that a little over a year ago I lost my job as a librarian. Since that time I have been trying to switch from “unemployed” to “self-employed” and one of the ways I’ve been doing that is to write online articles over at Squidoo.
They say in the “writing business” that you should write what you are passionate about. For me that mainly means dance, which unfortunately is NOT just a huge “money making” topic for writing.
BUT… I do like books as well. And, I do like the Rachel Maddow Show. And I noticed something interesting the other day when I looked at the “Top 100” lenses at Squidoo…. TWO of the Top 15 “lenses” which is what Squidoo calls “articles” are about BOOKS! Now there is something that I can write about which I also can be passionate about.
I was a librarian after all. 🙂
So, I created a new lens: Books and Songs from the “Rachel Maddow Show” (Current Season) and I published it on Friday the 12th in the wee hours of the morning. Since that time here is how it has ranked: Read the rest of this entry
The Rachel Maddow Show airs on MSNBC (9pm Eastern Time) Monday-Friday. The show, hosted by Rachel Maddow, is a daily news and opinion television program…
… The show usually features one or two guests during the 60 minute program and sometimes those guests are authors. Usually the author is there to provide commentary on the topic of the day, or to be interviewed because they are the topic of the day. Therefore, any plug of the author’s writings are secondary to the author’s pundit or news role.
Given that focus, it is understandable that there is no easy or concise way to find a list of the books mentioned or featured on the show. Trust me, I looked. I’m a librarian and I’m pretty good at finding information on the Internet, if it exists.
There just isn’t a list like that our there. Until now. So, here for your enjoyment are a list of the Rachel Maddow Show Guests who are authors and their books…
…if you watch the show regularly you’ll hear a song played as the show goes to commercial or during the credits roll at the end. The name of the song, if one is going to be used in that night’s show is released on the MaddowBlog. However, just as with the books, there is no single concise list of all the soundtracks.
Fear not, my fellow Maddow fans, I’m including them down below along with the books. [ Read the Rest of the Article ]
I have a new article on Squidoo
My latest article is about the Stonewall Book Awards which is an annual award given by the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Roundtable of the American Library Association. Whew! How is that for a long name?
The Award is named after the Stonewall Riots which marks the beginning of the modern Gay Rights movement.
For more info on the Award, the riots, or to see the list of books that have won the award, hop on over to Squidoo for the full article:
See ya on the dance floor!
