As the 2012 presidential campaign gears up, many pundits and strategists are studying the success Barack Obama had with social media and the blogosphere. A case study could be "The Outsider's Campaign Diary," a collection of blog posts written during the 2008 campaign by Obama supporter George Martin, a.k.a. “The Bard of Wilmette.” The book chronicles the posts and comments from Martin’s blog, which begin shortly after Obama announces his candidacy and follows the first two years of his presidency. George Martin graduated from Coe College and earned an MBA from the University of WisconsinMadison. Martin is the house accountant of a textile distribution business, which has been in his family for over seventy years. He claims to have no expertise with the presidential campaign, but decided to support Obama by blogging using “The Bard of Wilmette” moniker. An Outsider’s Campaign Diary (ISBN: 978-1-60264-662-9) is available in hardcover from Virtualbookworm.com, Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and numerous other online sites. The book can also be purchased in eBook format. More information can be found at the book’s official website, www.bardofwilmette.com . Martin may also be contacted at author@bardofwilmette.com.
