I have an idea for a fun food blog project. This is not a promotion for an event on my own blog; I want to learn how to make it universal.
The idea is that we all might occasionally have something extra in our pantries to share. Something that doesn’t really take more space than a first-class envelope. A little too much imported pepper; some special home-grown herbs (I have tons of Turkish laurel leaves); things like that.
I was thinking of calling this project Share Package – after the ubiquitous Care Packages of our college days, when mom would send much-needed provisions.
So here’s my question: Would this idea spread out if we all tagged our occasional share-posts with a Technorati tag saying “Share Package”? For instance, if I put up a post about a glut of wild fennel seeds in my area (now’s the season), I’d tag it “share package” and I would hope – wonder – if anyone might go check the Technorati tag once in a while and notice that Cookiecrumb has fennel seeds to offer. Then you could e-mail me with your address and I would mail you an envelope.
Is this the way Technorati works? (Provided, of course, that I ask you to send me a request.) I’m really not interested in starting some clearinghouse that needs an administrator; I want us all to participate on an ad-hoc basis. I would also like to know how to get a ripple effect so this idea spreads, but I’m cool with it being a lazy development… if at all. (I really don’t want to bother people with memes.)
Love to hear from you.
