Why I'd Rather Be Peet's Coffee Than Starbucks

My college roommate was obsessed with Peet’s coffee. It was 1990 and his parents would mail him coffee from Berkeley to our university in Connecticut every two weeks. This was before the coffee renaissance in the U.S., and I thought this was just another one of his quirks - like listening to the same five CDs everyday for a year or letting a pet rabbit eat all the cords in our room.

Do You Write The Way You Speak? Here's Why Most Good Writers Don't

Editor's Note: this post first appeared in January of 2016. We figured it was time for an update. We've included new tips and details to make sure your blogging and writing strategy is as effective as it can be in 2017.
