There are blogs and then there is "Belle de Jour"
There are other bloggers who have received a lot of attention from mainstream media, among them Riverbend of Baghdad Burning and Markos Moulitsas of DailyKos. This, however, is a different kettle of fish.
In an article dated March 27,2005, The Sunday Times (of London) named her as Lisa Hilton, "a British author based in America". When contacted by The Times, Ms. Hilton declined to confirm it.
Her book (The Intimate Adventures of a London Call-Girl by Belle de Jour, Weidenfeld & Nicholson £12.99, pp288) did not receive much praise from critics but did well in sales. I got a few chuckles just from reading the list of links in her blog. A few are listed below but those who wish to check them out will have to access them from the source.

Professor Dollar Fifty
I wonder what "Professor Dollar Fifty" is about. It is such a piddling amount. Should be interesting to read about Chloe's rapture. Ah, well. So much to read and so little time.
