Recently I wrote on the problem of reviving or amplifying your food blog. Now, let’s get to some detailed ideas:

One of the best things the World Wide Web has brought to our age is the ability for anyone to build a community of […]

Remodeling Under Way; Pardon Our Mess

Just a word of caution: We’re revamping quite a bit of the WordPress back office around the ol’ Underground. It may not seem very apparent to you, but it’s certainly taxing the Elves’ creative abilities well beyond where Santa ever got them to go. (Now I see why I got such a great package […]

When Good Food Blogs Go Bad, and What You Can Do to Revive Yours

This entry is part of a series, Better Foodie Blogs»

Blogging is an exciting undertaking, and blogging about food is especially fun and satisfying. Where else can we take our ideas about what to eat, how to prepare it, and when and where to share our great dishes in such an easy fashion? To […]

Impossapotamus Update: He's Dead, Jim...

Spock once feigned death in attempt to avoid being obliterated. (Clever, huh.) The Impossapotamus I was stalking tried the same thing.

Spock was successful. The Big Beast wasn’t. I bagged him again! Third year in a row, and fourth out of five tries. Pretty good shooting, if I do say so meself. (Okay, the shooting’s […]

Yet Another Sign of the Impending Apocalypse: CU Hits 600 Posts!

Break out the Good Hootch and warm up the squeezeboxes; it’s Time to Grill Party! The Chile Underground, the finest Underground on the whole Interwebz thingie, has reached the striking, monumental, wondrous, incomparable, and might we say, incomprehensible level of 600 posts! Yep, you’re right, that’s downright amazing. (I know, Tom; you predicted it […]

Is Grilling a Mystery to You? Then You Really Need to Read This Thriller

As many of you may know, I enjoy writing fiction. (No, I don’t include the posts hereabouts in that action. Well, mostly I don’t. Okay, okay; OFTEN I don’t. Satisfied?) My personal favorites include science fiction and action-adventure, but a good murder mystery is a joy to read. I don’t think I have the […]
