The folks at Fuelmyblog are running the edition of a book about people behind the blogs, remarking that all of us are made of flesh and bone and have real lives, far beyond the avatar that we choose in each moment to go out into the big digital world.

We have agreed to send the 15% commission to earn on each book (that is, the complete sales proceeds) to the charity Doctors Without Borders/ Medicins Sans Frontiers/ Médicos sin fronteras. So I encourage everybody reading this post to participate with its blog, send this news to friends who have one and, obviously, gift the book this Christmas.

How to participate?

Participating is fast and easy, just follow these steps:

1. Make yourself a photo with your avatar and write 100 words resume (100 is a strict max) about why you started blogging, what your blog is about, etc.
2. If you have a Flickr account, publish your photo and resume in the Book’s space at Flickr
3. If you don’t have a Flickr account, or not have time or interest in creating one, mail the Fuelmyblog Team at sending them the photo and the resume.

Facts and figures

They are keeping entries open until the end of November (30th, 8 days left).
The book will be published with print-under-demand procedures by Blurb.
Already 44 members in the project.
