    Any foodies around these parts? I just started up an ezine that covers food trucks and the industry of mobile cuisine. Check it out here Mobile Cuisine Magazine.

    Would love to get some feedback on the site or suggestions about future articles to write about. If you like it, feel free to pass the url along to your friends and family...la

    I like your angle. Your first step will be creating new content, as I'm sure you know. I'm not familiar with the mobile food industry--is there a lot to write about?

    You could consider videos of chef/owners discussing their business models or cooking techniques. To monetize, you could consider advertizing cooking-related products.

    New post up today. <here>

    Since I am just starting up, I am going to stick to writing articles most days of the week. Once I have a loyal following, I'll start monetizing the site, but for now, the content will be ad free.

    I am investigating a couple of options for the site right now which may even include a national association. I am talking with some database people right now to get a few things rolling, but before I sink too much time or money, I need to build up a good readership base.

    Thanks for checking it out. If you know any foodies, please feel free to pass the site info along to them. It would be greatly appreciated...la

    I'm 30 years old and have never eaten from a roach coach.
    I feel like I have missed out on a fundamental part of the human experience.

    I'm not writing about "roach coaches". Many of the vendors sell high end cuisine...la

    If you eat from it, it's likely a roach coach.

    Lovable animals shoudn't be eaten, they should be loved. The same goes for Rico.
     
  10. Going liberal eh?


    A roach coach is a roach coach ...

    Be it peddling Nouvelle cuisine
    Or the standard fare of
    burgers and beans

    roach coach
    chuck wagon
    meals on wheels

    roach coach
    by any other name

    STILL carries the meal to the patrons ...
    @ or near their work place
    (to their homes ... would be >catering< :gee: ... thilly philistine)

    :lol:

    Neat! You could do some really interesting work (research, yay!) looking at the mobile cuisine culture, the people who do it, the people who eat there... Getting some original content under your belt is one of the best ways of really bringing something special to your readers. Either way I think it's pretty cool :)

    Edit: Research like how to dispel the 'roach coach' image :D
