Publishing is hard work. Surely you’ve noticed? After one whole entire committed pumpkin season of dedicated blogging, I semi-retired from my website in 2009.

But yesterday’s New York Times article about Martha Stewart inspired me with a new idea. Why create new content if I can just repurpose the archive I wrote a while back? Ha ha! Well, it turns out that Martha Stewart has been reprinting the same content in her magazine for years, without notifying readers. She was charging them for articles they’d already paid for! Martha’s historical behavior appears to be a good indicator of future behavior, in other words… she’s a crook!

Well, dear readers, I respect you and my blog too much to consider such shenanigans. Besides, my content is free and I would never overcharge you for anything. Instead, I have conscientiously selected some of my favorite articles from which I’d openly like to repurpose. Please visit, revisit, and enjoy!

Hello, Little Truffle!

Shit, I like them all even those not listed!! The blog stil amazes me to this day. Until I re-read some of my own articles, I forget that I even wrote them!

OK, ready for a random curiosity? Martha Stewart borrowed my very own Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 during pre-release to see how her digital editions would look on Android. The Motorola Xoom was so awful that she’d written off Android entirely until she could see a better tablet than iOS. Thought you might like to know!

  1. Haha you are definitely correct with republishing. Ben & Jerry’s pumpkin ice cream is my favorite, so I’m glad that made it on the list. I do hope though that if you see more pumpkin stuff you have reviewed you’ll still share with your blog :)

  2. Hi Bookworm! Thanks for your comment.

    Now that it’s Pumpkin Season again, I’m on the lookout for new and exciting pumpkin foods. Keep an eye out here on the blog!

    And since I’m always on the go, you may wish to follow me on Twitter too where I publish under the name “ilovepumpkins.”

    Happy Pumpkin Season 2012!
