Time really does fly. It has been almost 8 months since Garlic Matters was born and I am so very proud of how my little website has grown over time.
My work on GM is taking up a lot of my time, but I enjoy the process, including the frustrating and challenging parts of it. Number of visitors grows week after week, which means I must be doing something right. Right? 🙂 I hear lots of warm and encouraging comments, and I can’t even tell you how very thankful I am for every one of them. Without YOU it simply wouldn’t make sense.
So, what’s new on Garlic Matters?
There are a few exciting changes to my posting schedule I’m going to implement starting from coming Friday, which hopefully will make Garlic Matters even more interesting.
1. Friday’s post: Garlic-free recipe post.
I love garlic, but it wouldn’t be true to say I eat/cook with it every day. There are many other delicious dishes that I also cook or drool over just by looking at, which are worth sharing. This is why on Fridays I will post a garlic free recipe, ideas, finds etc. which, hopefully you’ll also find interesting to read about and try in your kitchen.
2. Tuesday’s post: It will contain a delicious garlic recipe – no change here.
3. Sunday’s post: Weekly updates about new garlic content on the web.
A while ago I activated Google Alerts, which effects in a daily email from prof. Google about any new content with word “garlic” published on the web. Smart, huh? 🙂 Love it! What a brilliant and effortless way to monitor the web for a new content on any subject! The only condition is that you must have a Google account, which is free and super easy to set up in minutes.
It would be all nice and simple if I had a bit more discipline to actually review information about the content, which Google sends to me … You see, I belong to the hectic and disorganised group of people, who know how to use all sorts of tools, but find the getting on with utilising them in a productive way a bit more challenging.
So, starting from the coming Sunday, I WILL read, filter, prioritize and process new garlic content and once a week, post it here on Garlic Matters.
It is amazing how much valuable content floats up there unnoticed! This is exactly how I discovered TED-Ideas worth spreading.
I stumbled upon “Can we eat to starve cancer?” talk by Dr. William Li during my research on a subject of garlic health benefits. Garlic, among other really common foods including tea, plays an important role in antiangiogenic therapy against all types of cancers (cutting off the blood supply to cancerous cells effecting in starving them and preventing from the growth and further development). AMAZING!
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
