It was a toss up as to whether I should teach a seminar on mixology or media (read: booze or blogging) but in the end, I decided to lead a course on the ins and outs of food writing and blogging. Tonight’s my food media seminar at ICE and, well, I get a bit nervous about these things. Public speaking and lecturing —sans hubby–scares the daylights out of me but this trial-by-fire stuff is definitely good for the soul. (Last week’s wine lecture during a formal dinner for 60 almost intimidated me as much as the idea of giving birth…) Because taking on a fear- or living out a dream- is what life’s all about, right? Tonight, hopefully I can help the students live out a dream, big or small, in the blogosphere.
