While you were gone…

My first column – titled with great originality, “Show Me Eats” – ran in the Columbia Daily Tribune. My parents immediately ran out and bought every copy of the paper so you may have needed to read it online. Strangely enough, the column prompted little to no increased traffic to this site. Maybe boring navel-gazing and chestnut soup recipes aren’t edgy enough to elicit any reaction. Fine. Next week it’s downtown Columbia parking and actually eating the free breakfast at hotels.

  1. That is a little weird. Though, the Missourian did an article on my partner and I awhile back (about our “journey towards sustainable living” – as you can tell, I wasn’t thrilled to be in the paper) and it didn’t do much for our blog traffic either. We kind of thought it would. I wonder why that isn’t so. Hmmm. Maybe once the article has ran a few times, you will see a difference.

    I checked out the article and liked your case for a culture of place intimately tied to food. The chestnut soup sounds really good too – it makes me wish I had picked up some chestnuts when I saw them at market. I’m going to have to check the Root Cellar too – I bet this soup would be great with some local Uprise Bakery ciabatta for a soup and bread night.

  2. Perhaps many of us who are interested in food already found you via the prior story of your historic meat preparation, your comments on The Tribune food blog, or?

    I must admit that while I enjoyed and read the column and agreed with its points, it may not have appealed to the masses like many of your food and etablishment comments found here. Just a thought????

  3. Hey, who knows? The column’s not going to focus too often on restaurants, lest we start taking the Tribune into the choppy waters of restaurant reviewing. However, posts about restaurants consistently draw more clicks than, say, ones about the price of corn or whatever.
