OK, so I’ve been mentally threatening myself to write this for the last couple of weeks—ever since I never got a response from Emily Holleman to a PM I sent her on February 28 about the demise of Foodie Tuesday.
In my PM I asked her and her cohorts to “bring back Foodie Tuesday” as an informal, rollicking, no-holds barred celebration of OSers who enjoy cooking and creating with food—and eating, of course. And I asked her to “reserve” a couple of “cover” spots on Tuesdays for Foodie Tuesday posts.
Here’s the text of the entire PM:
Last week one of the more noted bloggers here lamented the seeming demise of Foodie Tuesday. 3 years ago when I first came on this site it was a free-wheeling, creative, raucuous and spontaneous weekly event.
Unfortunately it has seemed to go by the wayside. Quite frankly much of that was because its impetus was lost when an OS weekly recipe contest was being conducted parallel to "big" Salon.
How about doing something to bring it back? A bit of promo from you as editor along with a small dedicated space on the cover each week for 2-4 posts--change it up and let a guy like me who's on Pacific Time have a whack at it too without having to post at "Oh-dark-thirty".
Just a thought about something which could help refresh our pages each week.
(aka Cheap Bastid)
I never heard diddly squat. This was always one of my favorite things here on Open Salon. It got me interested in writing about food, developing recipes and working at doing good food, cheap. And it was fun to get feedback, read other food posts and provide feedback.
Apparently this site is only interested in snarky, sarcastic GOP candidate bashing and the posts of 4 or 5 writers whose every utterance is guaranteed a cover spot.
What do you think? Let me know. Oh, and let Emily know too.
(Yeah, I know this will probably get me permanently blacklisted from consideration for an EP--but I'll be in good company with Scanner and Tink--besides I don't get them anymore anyway).
