Give the people what they want! And the truth of the matter, is that people don’t really want me. I mean, I don’t blame them, I’m just some nobody who’s written a few joke articles- hardly worth their precious time. But, there are a lot of people who say things with far more eloquence and…

Wanna hear a story? Well I guess I’ve put all my eggs in the “power of humor” basket. This is the era of what-are-you-selling and am-I-looking-to-buy before we trade first names. Maybe I’m young, maybe it’s always been this way. I’m doubting that. Authors pine for credible back cover blurbs, while big fish companies are…

201 Process Post #4

Wait a second, I thought you were running a food blog. What happened here? Well, let me tell you a thing or two about The Dirt Mouth. She found her hands unable to write recipes when the news was doing nothing more than turning her stomach. She’s always had a thing for wit, and poetry,…

How do I look? Design, my age old enemy. Every time I change my theme, I become infatuated with the new design, only to grow sick of it within weeks. Now, I’m starting to see that I might have to manufacture my own sort of collage image for the header, as there are no designs…

Week 10: Analytics and the Power of Information

Week 10 is all about measurement. I am going to do a very simple experiment. You see, I’ve kept this blog very, very, quiet.┬áThis is not my first blog, and my other blog is a ghost town at the moment because I have all but abandoned it due to an inability to run two blogs…

Week 7: Design Changes

Yup, it’s late. Real late. What can I say? Life gets busy, but I have implemented some design changes as recommended by my reviewer Intuitive Wanderer. I would first like to say a huge thank-you to Intuitive Wanderer for the review, it was a huge help seeing how my site looks from another set of…

Week 9: Monetizing Your Website

By running a blog that is heavily influenced by my zero-waste lifestyle (despite being rather quiet about that influence thus far), I think this intersection of food and zero-waste leaves a lot of doors open for content. I can piggy back on holidays and popular trends in seasonal foods, but add a zero-waste twist that…
