Love to our friends in the blogosphere
I spent the morning at the Poynter Institute school for journalism in St. Pete as a part of a panel on blogging, speaking alongside super bloggers including the Times' Sean Daly and Eric Deggans, and the Tampa Tribune's hilarious Jeff Houck. While this may sound heady and intellectual, consider that our topics included "Using The Acronym WTF: Pithy or Janky?" and "Why My Thoughts On Circumcision Got Mad Blog Hits and Other Tales From The Heart."
Anyway, the class had cool journo-bloggers from all over the country. After our session, I met Julia Scott, a.k.a. "The Bargain Hunter," from the L.A. Daily News. Julia, pictured above, excitedly came up and pronounced her love for Deal Divas, so I instantly liked her -- really, folks, it's easy to win my appreciation. Complimenting my shoes also works.
Julia writes a blog similar to this one, only less fashion-centric. Think tips on ordering cheap off a menu and snagging rebates, free shipping and coupons on everything from oil changes to Dr. Pepper.
It's the holidays, folks. Time to spread the looooove. Check out her blog. Nice meeting you, Julia!
