Julie & Julia

A few months ago I was able to watch the film Julie and Julia. The movie tells the tale of Julia Child and Julie . The first story tells the tale of a who started blogging about a challenge she set up for herself- to cook over 500 recipes from Julia Child’s book – XX, Each effort and enterprise to be posted on Julie’s blog, In between the triumph and defeat of Julie the film also tells the story of how cthe cookbook Julie is using came to be, In other words , It is also the story of Julia Childs,

The film is light and entertaining, Julia and Julie’s adventures are poignant with little or even ust a pinch of pathos, Just enough to ground one with the story without be ing overwhelmed. In short it is an enjoyable film.

But probably an additional treat for writers, food bloggers, bloggers and publishers is how two books were published – and its effect on the writers and bloggers.

And it is an eye-opener. Writing online and offline is something that requires consistent and haard work plus a little bit of luck.
