I did a profile piece on the new Philadelphia based Social Media Site Collaborate Philly (click for post) in August, and now they've returned the favor and interviewed me about Tinsel & Tine ...
For the fourth installment of our spotlight on local websites series, we decided to feature local film and food website Tinsel & Tine founded by Le Anne Lindsay. Philly has a great film community. And as Katie Briggs talked about in our last installment, Philly is also a foodie town, too. It only makes sense to come across a site, which happily marries the two. And when I say "happily" I mean happily. Le Anne loves what she does. And it shows.
Q: When and why did you start Tinsel & Tine?
|I call this my vintage logo. It's the one I started the site with when I thought I'd be covering more food than film.|
A: It was actually a school project for my Data Comm class (2008). Our Instructor was going to be away for a week and creating a Blog was one of the assignments he left for us. I wasn't into it at all. I really felt it was a waste of time, and just busy work. So choosing an unorthodox name, seemed like a fun rebellion; I called my blog, Suck My Pretty Toes! It originally was about pet peeves and things that made me mad. Kinda an Andy Rooney rant. This was fine to get graded on the assignment, but to my astonishment, I really liked blogging! What I decided I didn't like, was writing from such a negative place.
