Sky Full of Bacon 10b: La Quercia Bonus Audio Podcast

UPDATE: Okay, despite saying the audio podcast would be at iTunes, I can’t seem to get it to show up there. So listen to it here, or download it via the link below and add it to iTunes manually. And scroll down one post to view the latest video podcast.

UPDATE 2: Finally, some link rays of sunshine: thanks to Chuck Sudo at Chicagoist for some very nice words, and Carolina Bolado subbing for the vacationing Mlle. Rosner at MenuPages (no, I don’t know what’s with the pissy second comment, either; wasn’t aware I was making news, I thought I was making erotic food poetry, frankly).

UPDATE 3: Thanks to Mike Sula for this nice piece too, which directs you where to try Acorn Edition prosciutto in Chicago when Ham Independence Day rolls around.

WARNING, NEW MEDIA MUSINGS AHEAD: Beyond that, it’s still a little slow on the linky linky love. When I started this thing, okay, Plan A was that one of the media outlets would want to be my advertising godfather (making me money without having to soil myself), and obviously that went pfft with the fact that they’re all desperate to survive themselves; but Plan B was, hey, at least I’ll give them something to write about now and then, and to embed on their sites, and to contribute to the general cause of attracting traffic with interesting food talk. Not because what I do is so all-fired great (though of course it is!), but because if they’re all running food blogs, they gotta write about something and post 3 or 4 times a day, right? Right? In fact, though they all have food blogs, they don’t seem to feel the need to post that much, and though overall they’ve been very good to me publicity-wise and I am certainly grateful, I very much doubt they see it as, how nice of me to give them something to make a post about today.

But really, it’s a service to your readers, I see what traffic I get from any link I get and consistently it’s 50, 75, even 100 or more of your readers watching my video all the way through and, presumably, feeling that the time spent reading your food blog was in part justified by that interesting video you told them about. It costs you nothing and it makes your readers happy. It gives you one more thing to write about on a particular day and c’mon, you know you need to be blogging multiple times a day, not just 3-4 times a week. So link to Sky Full of Bacon today, embed the new podcast at your blog today.
