For the last 12 months or so, I’ve been begging site visitors to submit videoed contributions of them preparing food using beer as an ingredient. So far, not a single response…until today. Not quite what I was looking for, but hey, these clips below are beer-oriented, and that’s what we’re all about here!
I’ve placed 2 of these submissions on the VodPod vertical on the right of the blog and here are the direct links to all 4 clips on youtube. The contributor’s name is Thomas de Napoli, and if you go to his site at www.enterthefancy.com , I suggest you take a look at “Lost,” under the Shorts category. You’ll get a kick out of it.
In the meantime, I’m working on a media-rich website/blog of videos of food recipes using beer, wine, liquor and liqueurs. I’m also building a library of podcasts with interviews from authors and business folks who want to plug a book, project or business in general, but whatever it is, it has to be beer/wine/booze and food oriented. The site will be THE place to go for a media-rich collection of spirited food and drink recipes. Once I have enough clips and interviews ready, I’ll be doing a soft opening in a month or so, start a news release campaign and some other publicity efforts in order to build traffic.
While I’m happy to use submissions from anybody who wants to be a “star” on the site, I’m especially looking for submissions that I can also build interviews around and give the submitter a chance to infomercial their projects for FREE, whatever they might be, once again, built around booze and food.
So here I am, begging again. Why don’t you do a short (under 10 minutes) recipe clip, and if you’re pushing a book, a drink product, a business…we could do an interview around it and talk about your project for an accompanied podcast while also setting up a link back to your site? It doesn’t have to be serious effort; light-hearted or just plain silly will work, as long as there’s a real ber/wine/booze food recipe involved that site visitors can benefit from.
There will be more about this project and website/blog location while I attempt to build a small library of stuff before we go online with this project.
