Anne and her Cheese Diaries

My girlfriend Anne was featured in the New York Times this past week, in connection with the Cheese Diaries!

I must confess I am proud of Anne for reaching this milestone. It takes some gumption to start a new website out of the blue, and more significantly to stick to it. Although I am very happy with my own career in print journalism, I tend to over-prepare and under-produce online, where speed and profductivity count for a lot.

One of the smart thing Anne has done is to bring on other strong writers to the site. I myself have only contributed a handful of reviews, but folks like Connie and Wade have been essential in making the site what it is with their dogged and thorough contributions.

Another recent accomplishment for Anne: She is one of only 10 people accepted into the science writing program at UC Santa Cruz later this year. This is a fantastic opportunity for her and payoff for months of field research currently and in the more disant past. Anne is making a bright future for herself in science and food writing and I could not be more proud!
