Great Expectations

dabvidboerigunOne of my colleagues is a notional blogger at best. The time spent waiting for his next post is measurable in geological time. And don’t get even get me started on Twitter. I had hair last time he Tweeted me.

This shortcoming of his I all too often forgive after reading his stuff. To wit: “How I Spent My 30th Birthday.”

Naturally my expectations have been tempered since those halcyon days when I first introduced @davidboeri to the miracle that is WordPress. Re-reading my post from that time (approximately six months + change), it is abundantly clear I harbored great—though quite unrealistic—expectations.

David assures me that in the coming months, he plans to increase his output. I hope, foolishly and futilely perhaps, that this will turn out to be the case. He is a journalist full of stories informed by decades walking a beat that has taken him to crime-ridden back alleys and other extreme environments (some literally at the top of the world).

Tell us more, David!

Blue Tuna

Thursday last, 40-plus food bloggers of various stripes invaded the station as part of the second local food blogger meet-up “sponsored” by 90.9. For a couple of hours that evening, foodies outnumbered the old-fashioned radio folk. Had a coup been successfully staged, you’d now be tuning to “Boston’s NPR Food Station.” Think of the possibilities! Continue Reading »
