Earlier in the week I had watched Julie and Julia, a movie about a 29-30 year old new york woman who starts blogging about her love for cooking and her attempt to make every single recipe from Julia Child’s “French cooking for the servantless Americans” cook book. By the end of the experiment the woman had numerous followers on the internet and had received a book and movie contract.

Interestingly today I was watching CNBC and they were analyzing the Oprah factor to see what impact it could have on people. One woman decided to follow Oprah’s advice and live like Oprah. She bought, read and did what Oprah recommended. All in all she wants to live like the way Oprah suggests one should live for a period of a year. What do you know, after three months she too has a book contract.

Interesting chain of events for all you writers out there….Hmm who should I follow;)
