My New Project: FOODCrush

Writing!I know I've been a little quiet lately on the blogging front. In addition to not writing quite as often, another of the things I've had to ease up on has been reading & visiting other blogs.  But, rest assured my dear friends, I'm still here!  And I can't wait until life frees me up just a little so that I can get back online.

So, what have I been up to?
Well, I've already told you about my recent foray into event planning and fund-raising. And you can imagine what it's like trying to balance two events, along with a full time job.  But, there's another reason why I've been AWOL. I've also been spending a little time on another side project, FOODCrush a community blog for Inside Milwaukee, the new Web site for Milwaukee Magazine.

The blog is (surprise) all about food.  I'm hoping to focus on at least one new local "food crush" each week -- thereby showcasing lots of great stuff around town.  I'll definitely be looking for ideas.  So, if you're a local foodie, I'd totally welcome your suggestions.  Know of a little known foodie destination?  A great product made in Milwaukee?  A cool festival that focuses on food?  Shoot me an email at lo @ eatatburp.com.  I would LOVE to hear from you.  And hey -- now I can give you all sorts of mad props in my new forum! 

The soft launch for the Web site began over Labor Day weekend, and they're still working out a few kinks.  But, you can check out my first blog post online starting today.  Right now it all just feels a bit surreal, but I think this is going to be a whole lot of fun...

And rest assured, I promise not to let it eat into my blogging over here at Burp!  I've still got plenty to say about our adventures in the kitchen!  I just need to find some time to get it all down on paper.

  3. Busy busy lady! I think it's great, as long as you don't get burnt out. I know, gee...get burnt out on tasting great food and writing about great food. Real torture. Millwaukee sure has some good eats. One of these days, I'll make my way back and you're taking me out!
