Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is the Ice Cream Journal by Turkey Hill (http://icecreamjournal.turkeyhill.com/.)
The Fourth of July is a time for patriotic celebrations, fireworks, and picnics. And ice cream! What could be better on a hot summer night than a nice cone, or bowl, or carton of ice cream? Turkey Hill's Ice Cream Journal is all about ice cream! Ice cream history, ice cream science, favorite flavors, things you can do with ice cream... This blog has been around a while - its first post is from November 1, 2006 - and they haven't run out of things to talk about!
Blogs come in all different types. Some are individual do-it-yourself projects, created by people who have something to say and want to get their message out to the worldwide audience of the Internet. Others are more professional endeavors, less labors of love and more tools of doing business. Some represent groups and organizations, or even corporations or businesses. The Ice Cream Journal falls into this last category. Ultimately it's a corporate blog, putting a face to and providing community outreach for the Turkey Hill Dairy corporation. And it does that job very well, by focusing on an engaging and popular item like ice cream.
One of the secrets of having a popular blog is having content that is wildly popular with people. Politics and sports are two of the big topics that bring in readers. But ice cream is definitely up there. Few blogs cover the topic of ice cream better than Turkey Hill's Ice Cream Journal!
