Here’s One Book Publisher Getting Through The Pandemic On Sales Of (Believe It Or Not) Poetry

Well, one kind of poetry in particular — that of Rupi Kaur, who is so popular that her most recent collection knocked Dr. Seuss off the top of Amazon’s poetry bestseller list. (Her two previous books are no. 5 and no. 8.) “For Kaur’s publisher, Andrews McMeel Publishing, this kind of immediate market impact has become customary.” – Publishers Weekly

Wow! Hrishikesh Hirway’s Song Exploder podcast is now a Netflix series! (For those who have never listened, Song Exploderfeatures musicians telling the stories of how their songs were created.) Check out the trailer above, featuring song explosions by Alicia Keys, Lin-Manuel Miranda, R.E.M., and Ty Dolla .

Hirway says on Twitter:

I still don’t fully believe it but @SongExploder, a podcast I started in my bedroom!, is going to be a @netflix series.

If anyone at Netflix wants to talk about becoming a series, let me know!! It can be about literally anything and everything. (Hey, we’ll call it “Anything and Everything”! The wheels are already in motion…)

Reagan Ray (previously) surveyed 100s of iconic covers of jazz albums (Blue Note, anyone?) and isolated the lettering of the artists’ names. I love these sorts of compilations — this is like a mini-tour through the history of graphic design in the 20th century.

Adam Enfroy, an ex-digital marketer turned full-time blogger who launched his blog just last year and is on track to make 7-figures in 2020. 

With over 450,000 monthly readers, Enfroy’s mission is to teach the next generation of online entrepreneurs how to scale their influence at startup speed. His blog lays out the exact steps he took and how it’s possible for new bloggers to make life changing money in months, not years — since he just did it himself.

On Blogs and Bread

Journalism and anthropology grad Stephanie (Green) Wise ’08 has found a niche developing recipes and food-centric content for Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, and her own cooking blog, Girl Versus Dough.

In 2009, she launched her own, Girl Versus Dough, as a creative outlet and to keep a hand in the world of writing. The couple then moved to Iowa so Elliott could return to school to become a physician assistant. 

Sourdough Tips

When the sourdough craze arrived in the spring at the start of our pandemic life at home, I took to this very space to say sourdough was not for me, for now. At a time of unprecedented challenge — personally, professionally and globally — I didn’t have the bandwidth to pick up a new hobby that might not shake out.
