Just saw that the brilliantly funny Scary Mommy blog has hit the traditional publishing arena–A great example of a blog-to-book deal for Baltimorite Jill Smokler. (Her book, “Confessions of a Scary Mommy” (Simon & Schuster) is due out next Mother’s Day).

As the Scary Mommy Manifesto goes: “I shall not compete with the mother who effortlessly bakes from scratch, purees her own baby food, or fashions breathtaking costumes from tissue paper. Motherhood is not a competition. The only ones who lose are the ones who race the fastest.”
