DeathbedFood Guests on ‘Beyond My Day Job’.
One of the things I’ve wanted to accomplish with the DeathbedFood blog is getting my voice out there. I’m happy to report that I’ve finally done it – thanks to my friend Lonnie Miller who recently launched a podcast called ‘Beyond My Day Job’. As its name implies, his podcast is focused on sharing slices of life of what we do when we’re not working.
Lonnie and I met 20 years ago (ouch, I’m old) when I worked in market research. I was in sales and he was in analytics. He saved me many a time before a big client presentation. Largely because of that, we’ve stayed friends all these years – well, that and he’s a great guy.
Lonnie remains in the field. Right now, he focuses on advising his customers how to use analytics to solve connected car and customer experience challenges.
Meantime, I got out. My day job these days is being executive producer for a documentary film and film for classrooms called RAMON RISING, the true story of an abandoned farmworker boy who became a doctor.
After 7 years, this blog remains my, as Lonnie calls it, “high effort hobby”.
In ‘The Foodie’ podcast episode, we discuss the ups and downs of food blogging and all things DeathbedFood such as:
- WHY I became a food blogger;
- Why it’s called DeathbedFood;
- My favorite post;
- The biggest MYTH about food blogging;
- Things I HATE about food blogging; and
- What MY DeathbedFood is.
The highlight for me was getting to share my story about finally meeting Jose Andres after trying for SEVEN YEARS! It shows that using really guerrilla moves with my @DeathbedFood Twitter can pay off.
