TypePad customers in the news: Keep ‘em coming!

Last week, we showcased several TypePad customers in the news. Some of you sent other recent stories that include TypePad customers, so we’re covering them as well as new stories this week.

For example, Martha Stewart Living magazine included Going Local, a blog written by Indiana-based food writer, recipe creator, and Advanced Master Gardener Victoria Wesseler, in an issue titled ‘going green.’ The seasonal foods grown on her mini-farm in Lebanon, Indiana, called Dirtpatch, inspire the blog posts and great recipes in her TypePad blog.

Adoptive Families magazine included the Chronicles of Mommyhood blog where you can get a peek at the joys and challenges of adoption through one couple's experiences in adopting Gavin.

Speaking of mommyhood, the San Jose Mercury news featured The Silicon Valley Moms blog and Alice Bradley's blog Finslippy in a story about mommy bloggers spreading news about political campaigns. (Registration might be needed)

We’re looking forward to hearing about other customers in the news. Keep ‘em coming!

Probably not at recent as you'd like, but our little TypePad blog was mentioned in a New York Times print and online piece. As one of the authors at jkOnTheRun, the NYTimes interviewed me on the recent Apple iPhone price cuts. Here's a link to the story: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/07/technology/07apple.html?_r=3&oref=slogin&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

Priest Lake resident's blog an insider's guide to Mexico

In another life in another time in another country far, far away, Pecky Cox understood that everyone on the street who called you amigo wasn't necessarily your friend. Especially in a tourist town in old Mexico. In the past four years, Pecky, short for "pequena" (little) and a nickname for Rosario Gomez Cox, has become a fixture at Priest Lake since marrying Fred Cox and starting her blog, As The Lake Churns ( www.peckycox.com). "The life I hadAdvertisement

in Mexico is so different than the one I have now," she told Huckleberries on Friday. Pecky lived a life of luxury, surrounded by body guards, in Mexico City, where she was born and raised. But she enjoys the relaxed pace at Priest Lake. She has become the community's virtual town crier since starting her blog in February 2006 as a means to keep neighbors posted about local weddings, other milestones, and who's staying where during the summer. As The Lake Churns has evolved into a news source that attracts 600 viewers per day. Now, Pecky has found another means to serve her growing cyber community – a second blog, Casa Cox (GimmeMexico.com), which tells gringos how to enjoy Mexico visits to the max. The concept that most Idahoans have of Mexico "is so not right," Pecky said. "They think everyone drinks tequila with balloons on their head." Casa Cox warns about scams and discusses restaurants, hotels, night life, art, tradition, language and Mexican cuisine. Also, Pecky provides tips, including why Mexicans are insulted by gifts containing silver. Pecky isn't selling anything. She views her Casa Cox blog as a way to thank Americans for welcoming her so warmly. As Pecky sez of the real Casa Cox on Priest Lake, "mi casa es tu casa."
