A book full of Beanbags and Bullsh!t

I’m David Floyd. I’m Managing Director of the small Walthamstow-based social enterprise, Social Spider CIC. If you’re reading this, you’re reading my popular social enterprise blog, Beanbags and Bullsh!t. Over the past two years, the blog has developed a strong following amongst social entrepreneurs, academics, social enterprise leaders and other people who are interested in social enterprise.

Unfortunately, despite writing a comprehensive business plan based on generating a living wage through click-through advertising this business model has proved to be ineffective. So, despite the fact that book publishing has been abolished by the internet, I am traveling back in time to publish a book of the best posts from the blog.

The book will definitely be published one way or another – and should be quite good – but the more people chip-in, the more chance we’ll be able to pay someone who’s good at design to design it.

All profits from this project will be reinvested in a social enterprise, the Co-Operative Bank, which is responsible for providing Social Spider CIC’s overdraft facility.

You can secure your copy of the best of Beanbags as an e-book or a paper-based book – or give me even more of your hard-earned cash to secure the prestigious title ‘Order of the Beanbag’.

Note on sponsorship: Readers from the business community should be aware that, like everything in social enterprise, this book is available for corporate sponsorship. Please note, though, that ‘sponsorship’ in this instance means either money and/or a really good launch party. Pro-bono business support from your staff team is not applicable on this occasion.

    Excellent ‘note on sponsorship’ David… good to be clear! Yours is my first port of call in the plethora of social enterprise themed blogs, I’d definitely enjoy a copy of the book. Best of luck with it.


  2. “Publishing has been abolished by the internet.” It has? Darn, my business and I didn’t get the memo.

    If you need any ‘backstage’ help with this, just let me know. I work for a publishing house, so could at least give you a hand with editorial and suchlike.
