Writing is something that I’ve always done but didn’t realize I really enjoyed until recently. After I started this blog I began thinking more and more about writing for an audience. I can upload pictures and write down recipes, but if nobody looks at them, or reads them, then they are just taking up virtual space. Sometimes when I post things I know that they aren’t going to be very popular posts, but typically, I try to share information that will be helpful or interesting to my readers, and to people who just stumble in for a visit.
Last year I was asked by the editors of Edible Grande Traverse to write an article about my experiences with farm to school. I was honored. Edible Grande Traverse is a local publication, but its readership is far greater than mine. After the article was published, Barb and Charlie (the owner/operator/editors of the magazine) told me that they would like me to write for them again. Last weekend the Winter 2011 issue hit the streets; my second article, “A Tomato In Every Pot and Compost in Every Backyard” is in it.
Hopefully, this won’t be my last!
