Food and Fortune Go Hand in Hand

As you may already know, our culinary interests go hand in hand with our monetary ones. While we all recognize the importance of managing our money, we also want to indulge in some quality dining from time to time too. It is with this closely intertwined relationship that we tour the blogosphere today, looking at what people have to say about food, fortune, or both.

If you’ve ever had eggs for breakfast or fried chicken for lunch, you may (or may) want to see this undercover video of a hatchery. It’s appalling how they treat the baby chicks, especially when it is largely in the name of cost efficiency.

Deborah Ng is a fellow freelancer and she is tired of complaining about certain misconceptions and unpleasant business circumstances. She provides reasons why old school freelance writers need to lighten up and stop whining. There will always be other writers who are letting themselves get underpaid. Understand the economy of the Internet and position yourself accordingly.
