  • John Dies at the End.
  • Amakute Hoshikute Torokeru Chuu started out as a web novel on Fuguriya's website before being adapted into the seventh game of the Sono Hanabira Ni Kuchizuke Wo series.
  • With Strings Attached. Half of it is online; the second half is only available in the print/electronic editions. The first chapter of the sequel, The Keys Stand Alone, is also online; the author hasn't decided whether to put more up yet.
  • Fifty Shades of Grey was heavily modified from a Twilight Fanfic.

  • Scott Adams published a number of his blog posts in the Dilbert book.
  • The seed of How to Teach Physics to Your Dog came from a blog post, though most of the content in the book is new.
  • Cake Wrecks has produced a book, complete with a book tour (to which many fans brought cakes of their own).
  • Stuff White People Like started off as a blog and was made into a book.
  • Julie & Julia: blog=> book => movie with Meryl Streep. A big gap in that final step, made by the fact that Nora Ephron just didn't like the attitude she got off of Julie Powell from her blog.
  • Jump the Shark from the late website of the same name
  • Comic Book Legends Revealed from the blog Comics Should Be Good - half new items and half items already posted on the blog.
  • $#*! My Dad Says: The book contained some of the same quotes with new ones added. It later became a short-lived series on CBS.
  • Law and the Multiverse blog was turned into a book called The Law of Superheroes.
  • April Winchell's popular Regretsy has been published in book form.

  • Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy. Went from a popular science website to a nonfiction book.
  • Wikipedia has, in fact, been released on CD. Okay, not the whole thing, but portions have been released on CD or DVD for charity purposes, and the Wikipedia 1.0 project is attempting to produce a more rigorous hard release.
  • The Skeptic's Dictionary is an online resource covering a variety of pseudoscientific topics from the skeptic's perspective. Portions have since been compiled into a book.
  • The Counter-Creationism Handbook started off its life as a portion of the TalkOrigins website.
