Bringing Home the Freshest Kill

Posts in the borscht category


In years past — specifically, each December — I’ve celebrated the medium of blogging by inviting writers I like to compose guest posts here, at this blog.

These events have gone by the moniker “A BORSCHT-IN,” and they have been good fun.


Part of the fun was watching talented scribes like Daniel Kalder and Ricky Sprague do their thing, and do it damn well.


But this year, I’m inverting the process. This year, instead of soliciting blog posts for this site, I’m offering to guest-post at other peoples’ blogs in December.

I’ve already promised the brilliant Lucy Steigerwald an item for her blog. I also have something brewing for the blog of my amazing friend Ruth Waytz.

So, I humbly throw this idea out to the shifting, whispering sands of the Internet — who else would like to taint their brand by allowing me to pilot their blog for a post or two during the month of December?

I only have one rule for this experiment — if you ask me to blog for you, you must assign me a blogging topic.

Somehow it just seems more fun that way.

Game on, comrades.

Last year, I started a tradition here at Iced Borscht wherein friends and other bloggers provide guest posts for the month of December. It’s called “A Borscht-In.”

Some of you might recall that Ruth Waytz provided some great material, as did Conrad Heiney and Jacob Grier. All three of them are invited back for A Borscht-In II, of course, but newcomers are welcome also.

Who wants in? The topics are up to you. There are no hard and fast rules. Below is a list of subjects typically covered at this site:

  • Russia and other transcontinental cha cha cha
  • Gurgitation and culinary treasures
  • Women
  • Portland
  • Humor
  • The Pack
  • Sex
  • Music
  • Deep-fried dystopia
  • Politics (any perspective is welcome, on any end of the political spectrum)
  • Strange places
  • Strange people

The veteran guest bloggers I already mentioned (Ruth; Conrad; Jacob) will get full-on user IDs of their own so they can log on and post at their leisure. Neophytes will have to e-mail their contributions to Big Daddy.

There are no deadlines, per se, but contributions are welcome between now and the end of December. The guest posts will officially go live on December 1, 2010.

That’s all there is to it.

You know you want to do it!
