I’ve heard this comment all too often lately: “You’re using a blog as your business website? How odd.” It may be odd, but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper to build. That is always a plus. Besides, I’m a writer! I write… let that one sink in. Careful, now. It could be painful.

The name CultureFeast came to me more than a year ago and wouldn’t leave. There have been many plans for this name: online bookstore, blog, art & culture review, and copywriting portfolio.
