People Doing Cool Things on the Internet II
I had so much fun with this last week, that I’ve decided to make it a series. There are so many people doing neat and exciting and innovative things online, and I want to spend some time talking about them here. It ties in nicely with yesterday’s post too, on being a fan. I’m a fan of these folks, and I just have to tell you about the cool things they are doing on the Internet.
As my waistline implies, I LOVE food. I enjoy cooking, I watch cooking shows incessantly, and have even been known to create the occasional culinary masterpiece in my kitchen. I’m the kind of person that has no qualms about tweeting what I’m having for breakfast, lunch AND dinner. In fact, I’ve met some really cool people this way. Foodies are a HUGE online community, and we spend countless hours indulging in our foodtastic ways.
That’s one of the reasons I’m such a big fan of Don and Jenn, otherwise known as Foodieprints. Their amazing blog is chock full of culinary delights. You’ll see something new every day here, and in addition to their extremely well researched and meticulously written posts, you’ll be able to indulge in food photos to die for!
Even if you don’t live in the Ottawa area, you can still appreciate the care and work that these two stellar food bloggers put into every post. I dare you to walk away from the Foodieprints blog without a grumbly tummy!
Hubby and I are HUGE horror fans. Well, more hubby than me, but the longer I’ve been with him, the more I’ve come to appreciate the genre. But even more than that, I’ve come to appreciate the community. A few years ago, my husband started listening to Night of the Living Podcast, a weekly podcast about pop culture and horror movies. The NOTLP gang – Freddy, Amy, Erica, Mike, Andy and Kelly – are a group of close friends that hail from Cincinnati, who decided to spend an hour or so every week, recording their take on the world of horror. The result is a hysterically funny, jam-packed hour full of witty rapport, news, reviews, and just plain fun. The content is decidedly NSFW, but that makes it even more enjoyable, in my opinion!
What’s even better about NOTLP is that Greg and I have been privileged to have headed down to the Midwest a few times to see the crew, and we’ve all become great friends over the years. They are amazing, genuine, and warm people, despite their somewhat perverse senses of humour (then again, that’s probably one of the reasons we all get along so well).
If you’re a horror fan, or just want to be wildly entertained, please do check out NOTLP. These guys are the real deal, doing what they do out of pure enjoyment.
