most of my blog posts seem to start with an excuse as to why it has been so long since my last blog post. but this time, its a really good one. i have another blog, one for work. and i have a new job, one that modestly overlaps with what i was doing here. which is good and bad. good because my job is now related to my hobby. bad because i'm now always doing it, and i am still trying to figure out where the divide is. like, is it a problem if i write a blog post on osteria in philadelphia, which i totally should have done and now am annoyed with myself because i didn't? or frasca in boulder, which, i mean, ditto. and then ajax in aspen was a different issue, because i was actually sort of doing work while i was in aspen. so can i post something that is quasi work-related on my personal blog?
if you didn't know, my job is to write about eating now, so writing about eating as a hobby is sort of a gray area. so i don't know.
anyway, i think i will start posting links to the stories i write for the paper here, in case anyone here sees it that isn't in our coverage area. and here is one i did this week about new gluten-free restaurants in the bay area.
