Cheap Content Stinks

Don’t “Fluff” Out – Rich Content is the Only Content Worth Sharing

Beware of Promises of Cheap and Easy Content! I am always on the lookout for assistance in producing content, I simply only have so many hours in a day to do what I love. I’ve explored outsourcing, interns, guest writers, content clearing houses, and even fiverr.com as potential avenues to provide supplemental content development services. To date, I have seen little in the way of quality content that I would use – aside from unpaid communications from thought leaders and […]

Parking Ticket - Thirst Productions

The Parking Ticket – How a Tiny Piece of Paper Represents Everything That is Wrong with America.

The Parking Ticket, Indicative of Everything that is Wrong with America. At a business meeting the other day in lovely Downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I found myself running “late” in said meeting, and willingly came to accept that I would be receiving a parking ticket. I was aware of the consequences of my actions when parking in a metered space, and made a contract of sorts with the city to abide by their rules. I was an active participant. I […]

A Tiny Bit Huge Portsmouth NH

Why I love Where I Live, Portsmouth NH

I confess. Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I have been unfaithful. Having moved just outside your borders to the Town of Greenland, I sometimes tear up having called you my home for a decade or so. I miss you. The good news is, the entire Seacoast Community defines Port City – we all can’t live within her borders, with a population of just over 21,000 people – you’re just a tiny little town on the Coastline. But it is through this greater community that […]

There’s a new Blind Pig in town.

Portsmouth snobs like myself often poo-poo the goings on over the bridge in our sister state of Maine. But Kittery is booming, the foreside has packed in more coolness in it’s few square blocks than I ever thought possible. But I’m not talking foreside, I’m talking the Island life. Badger’s Island life. Home of the strangely but oh-so-fun-to-say “Blind Pig Provisions” So I don’t know the lore of the name, I may flip over to the website to check it […]

French Pastries – in Portsmouth.

Portsmouth, France? Paris, NH? Where am I living and working these days? Must I pinch myself because I spy a real pasty shop right here in Downtown PTown?  (not that PTown – Port City P Town. N’ampsha’s PTown). The disaster that was the Red Iguana, and the lunch place before that whose name seems to elude me, crashed and burned explosively in this real estate prior to this entity. The Congress Street Space tucked between the Music Hall Loft and Cafe […]
