Welcome to the opening of the blook on this website!

What is a blook?
The word blook was coined to describe a blog applied to a book.
In this blook each post consists in a paragraph from the book of reference and it is therefore possible to comment and discuss the book as it is published.
The blook is guided by the principles of freedom, cultural sharing and participation, it assumes that the authors intend to compare with others their own thoughts and offer their book for free on the Internet.
The publication of individual paragraphs allows a progressive reading of the text and of related comments, and the opportunity to actively participate in the discussion of them.
The inclusion of the post in an archive divided into chapters allows to read and add comments and discussions over time, thus creating a book in progress to which everyone can participate.
Today we announce the publication of our blook; it will occur soon on this site and will concern the book “One step at a time – a path of reflections”.
To enter your comments and participate in discussions you must register at the site; the registration process (not yet activated), further to providing the information required by law to protect personal data, suggests to choose a nickname and an avatar of medieval inspiration so that the discussions take the charm of a real round table.

      Here are two examples of medieval avatar: those chosen by William the Eclectic and Hildebrand the Peasant;
a medieval-inspired nickname can be made up of a name followed by a reference to:

• the city of origin (Alaricus of Rochester, Beatrice of Canterbury, …)
• a physical feature (Gaufridus the Short, Desdemona the Goldenhaired, …)
• a character feature (Geneva the Negotiatress, Maynard The Fearless, …)
• a feature in the emblem (Lucretia Yellow Band, Landulfus Winged Crest, …)




Free your imagination to coin your nickname and match it with an appropriate avatar and we’ll soon get back to you for the presentation of the contents of the book.

    Test of registration process, automatic association of the avatar with the email address, display of nickname and comments.

    • Hildebrand the Peasant says:

      If you wish, you can also illustrate your comments with emoticons, simply typing them in the text in the traditional form with punctuation signs and the system will automatically turn them into the nice graphical form you can you see.
