I’ve got great news. Wairarapa Lifestyle Magazine recently interviewed me for their spring issue, and they’re going to be publishing an ongoing series from ‘Moon over Martinborough.’ They’ve even slapped a picture of me on the Spring 2009 cover, which I find vaguely embarrassing.
This was my first time ever being interviewed, and it was a very strange experience. Imagine: you’re sitting there talking with somebody over a cup of tea, and it feels like a normal conversation. However, there’s a tape recorder on the table, and any offhanded comment you make could end up in print.
The spring issue is out now. In it they published the interview and a two-page spread of my story about our chickens, ‘Old Man Henry and the chook house race wars.‘ There’s a very big picture of Henry.
My friends have accused me of pimping my rooster.
When I started this blog just six months ago, I was worried nobody would read it. But it’s already getting over 2,000 pageviews a month and so many nice people are leaving comments. Thank you! And now selected posts are being syndicated in a quarterly magazine with a 10,000 copy print run. You can imagine I’m pretty happy ’bout that.
Here’s the cover.
And here’s the interview.
Thanks Wairarapa Lifestyle!
