Taking Five Minutes with Foodies

Establishing a schedule for blog posts is task number one for bloggers, and sticking to it is a feat of both dedication and creative endurance.

For Port City Foodie, I'm doing flash interviews with Wilmington food personalities, one a week, and publishing them on the weekends. I've talked with chefs, cookbook authors, restaurateurs and foodies. Talk about fun, this is it. Doing what I love, meeting people, talking, writing. Check out the series, Five with a Foodie.

Chatting it up for Cape Fear Living

In addition to editing and proof reading, cutting words and juggling topics, I get to sit down with some interesting people. All part of my new gig as editor of Cape Fear Living Magazine.

Here is the first interview I did for the magazine: Author Tony "A.J." Tata: Riding the Swell.

The best part-time-spare-time-when-do-you-sleep hobby there ever was.

Three Ring Circus, or something

Here is my final thought on Google Authorship, which was there, and then wasn't there: and you want me to do what? Really?

Positive reinforcement

Remember star charts from grade school? I tried them once or twice at home, related to chores and privileges, but just wasn't that kind of parent. I wanted to play with stars as rewards, more for me, than for the kids.

Sticky stars, colored stars ... they still get me.

So today, my week is made, I have earned a star. From eBay, in the color of my favorite stone, turquoise.


Think about giving your users a star for performance, participation, appreciation.Those of us who are old-school will get it.
