On the Record about Cookin’ In the ‘Cuse

God, do I feel sterotypical doing this: here I am, blogging about an interview on blogging.

I just got off the phone with a Syracuse journalism student (I don’t want to name her, because I didn’t ask if I could) doing a profile on Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, the author of Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse. I link to Jennifer’s site, and vice versa, and so I guess that made me a decent source.

I hope I did Jennifer’s blog justice, but all I could keep thinking was that this student’s assignment is the exact same assignment my Journalism students are working on right now (the profile piece), and I suck at giving good quotes. And I used the adjective “very” way too many times. AND I actually used the term “blogosphere” which I hate. All in all, if this reporter uses my quotes, I’m pretty sure I’ll come across as someone you’ll want to smack.

So Jennifer, allow me to say this: I love your blog, I love your commitment to using local and organic foods in cooking, and I hope I conveyed that in the interview.

    Laura Rebecca–you should see the grin on my face–Thank you! Thank you for the profile–I’m sure it was fine. But she sure is thorough–I think my Mom, a priest friend, and several parishioners were also interviewed. I can’t wait to read it–I may learn some things about myself. On another note–we have got to do some kind of CNY foodblogger gathering in the spring–I can’t wait to meet you!
