Behind the Slice: Pimpin’ Pizza Ain’t Easy
by Adam Kuban
As I’ve said before, I really like Vox but I’ve been hard pressed to think of what to write on it. But a couple weeks ago, Anil suggested I should try blogging some “Behind the Slice” material. It’s a good idea, so I’ll try that. Now the hard part: Figuring out what to say about the shady side of Slice. If you’re reading, strap yourself in for a slow ride to Boresville.
Where Does the Time Go?
One thing that’s been up lately is that I don’t have time to post as much as I once did. I recently took a new position within Martha Stewart Omnimedia, where I’ve been working for the last five-plus years. I’m now online copy chief for marthastewart.com . As such, I’m responsible for all the copy-editing aspects of the site. The new job has other responsibilities, which I won’t go into, but if you follow Slice or A Hamburger Today , you can probably tell I’m being kept busy.
In the past, I’ve used the “busy at work” excuse to explain away lulls in posting frequency, when what was really going on was something closer to blog depression or bouts of laziness. But this time I really mean it. Ai yah. I have almost no downtime in which to read other blogs (from which I draw inspiration) or look for cool new pizza and burger items to post about. And by the time I get home, I don’t want to look at a computer tube at all (I’d rather veg in front of the TV tube, watching Stargate SG-1 or Stargate Atlantis).
But the good news is that things are going a little smoother at work lately, so some of the pressure is off and I have more downtime (a few minutes here and there) to devote to my RSS feeds and hunt for quirky pizza crap. So expect more posts on the sites.
Until then, hasta la pizza.
