Year of Plenty

Hilarious Encouragement for Aspiring Web Authors

I'm a long time fan of and couldn't resist posting these pics. If you've ever blogged or Twittered or facebooked you just might spit your coffee all over the keyboard. Go here for the lowdown on the growth in web authors. Can there be such a thing as a Facebook author? For the food and faith forum article in the paper I was listed as an author of this blog. Kind of cool but a little strange.



Year of Plenty

The Year of Plenty blog was created by Craig Goodwin in the winter of 2008 to chronicle the experiences of his family as they sought to consume everything local, used, homegrown or homemade. That journey was a wonderful introduction to people and movements in the Spokane area who are seeking the welfare of the community through local foods, farmers markets, community gardens, sustainable transportation, and more fulfilling and just patterns of consumption. In 2009 and beyond the blog will continue to report on these relationships and practices, all through the eyes of a family with young children. Craig manages the Millwood Farmers' Market, is a Master Food Preserver and Pastor at Millwood Presbyterian Church. Craig can be reached at
