When Tara Met Blog
Tuesday, August 21, 2007
I'm big in Japan

I'm quoted in a new Japanese book, Try reading blogs in English by 26 ordinary Americans, which teaches conversational English by translating excerpts from U.S. blogs.  

So being one of the "ordinary American" contributors, chapter 12 is dedicated to my When Tara Met Blog entry on my trip to Vegas (why that one? I have no idea, maybe because I use a lot of slang?). My full name is up on the right hand corner of each page in that chapter, which is quite cool like I'm an author, but then again, I guess I am the author of that particular content, so I'll take it. 

I was contacted last year by the editor of the book and he asked if he could use my blog entry and of course I said yes. I later had to sign a contract that I didn't really read, and now I got a copy of the book sent via Japan. Thus, my global infamy begins, victory is mine!

Wow, congratulations. I wonder what they would think of your "Turning Japanese" post.
