Editorial Reviews

Review

"These women are so open, friendly, and familiar that the book felt like a cozy coffee shop chat between friends. It inspired me not only to become a better blogger, but to really open myself up so that I could take in all the details of life that these women have managed to capture. I can only hope that this wonderful collection will have a second volume—and soon!"  —luxuryreading.com

Format: Hardcover
For anyone who has wondered what women read online, this book is for you. Kirtsy Take A Bow is a pretty coffee table book that you should keep next to your laptop as you peruse the book and the web for wonderful sites that women love. Some are crafty. Some are foodie. Some are about babies. Some are about dating. There's something for every woman who is curious and creative. It may inspire you to build you own site as well. [Full Disclosure: My blog, Cupcakes Take The Cake is mentioned.]

where did the basis of this book go. It was based on a website community and the site is now defunct?
