Yes, it's that time of year again. We are now preparing for our annual Menu for Hope, this year it's Menu for Hope 6, or Menu for Hope VI, whichever you prefer. I can hardly believe it's been six years that we've been at this, and our fourth year now in partnership with the UN World Food Programme. As always, Menu for Hope cannot exist without your help, see if you can lend a hand? Frequently Asked Questions What is Menu for Hope? Menu for Hope is an annual fundraising campaign hosted by me and a revolving group of food bloggers around the world. Five years ago, the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia inspired me to find a way to help, and the very first Menu for Hope was born. The campaign has since become a yearly affair. For the past three years, Menu for Hope raised nearly a quarter of million dollars in support of the good work of the UN World Food Programme, helping to feed hungry people worldwide. Each December, food bloggers from all over the world join the campaign by offering a delectable array of food-related prizes for the Menu for Hope raffle. Anyone – and... Continue »

At a bar last night, I was talking to someone smart who made an excellent point: that a very quiet, revolutionary act in the history of publishing had just taken place. (This person compared this moment to Gutenberg, which might be a little bit far afield but not that far off!) That is that Joshua Micah Marshall is hiring a publisher for Talking Points Memo, the blog he started all on his own in 2000, a bit before all the warbloggers like Jeff Jarvis and Glenn Reynolds came onto the Internet, and four years before Michelle Malkin. (Oh yes, how soon we forget.) My friend's point was: here is an editor, who built and owns his publication, who is now going to be the editor-owner, who will employ the publisher. For those of you who have worked at any sort of publication, the implications of this are staggering via www.theawl.com Thanks David Continue »

Letters from a friend. Dating back 15 years or so. On my mantle. In my new home. Cherished. Much like the old Christmas card that popped out of a cookbook the other day quite pleasantly with it's HELLO!~ All Our... Continue »

So I am going to try and pull the trigger on (what I consider) a huge blog move this Holiday weekend. I have decided to bail on my self hosted WordPress space to move to TypePad. I have no idea how to really do this for several reasons ... the first is that I would like to point my domain at TypePad. This isn't the bad part, its that I have at least 6 years of digital media sitting on my existing host that will somehow need to just work when I get the whole import and domain stuff worked...
