Truffles are expensive. They make everything they are put in more extravagant. One of the best things they can be put in aside from cheese is honey -to put on the said cheese. Truffle honey tastes like the earth stops moving for a few seconds. You can make similar at home for less with this little trick. Continue reading

Cheese is epic. And in a country that still has an emerging cheese production culture, where oh where do you get cheese wax ?!?

I never quite liked the wax on the cheese, it gets in the way of eating the cheese methinks. But surprise! its actually good for the cheese, and makes it last longer! If you know a bee keeper, there is a recipe here for you. If not, you can just apply the concepts here and use cheese wax.

At its essence, when it come to the art of making cheese all cheeses are the same. A counessour would scoff at that. But if you haven’t turned your nose up yet I’m using art in the greek sense as a “way of doing”.

Day 24: Getting a Creative Commons license easy as 123

Creative commons or CC license is similar to a copyright. The chief difference being you allow others to share your work. Basically they aught to cite you. You have the option of allowing derivatives (edited, or your work is added to someone else’s). You also have the ability to set that they can share it if they share similar things too. And you can set if it can be used commercially or not. Basically, it protects your work and you choose limits on how it can be used.

Getting a creative commons license is very simple and there are a couple ways to it quickly. The easiest option is to use a platform that automatically licenses it for you (a list is available here). The second way requires minimal effort. The slightly more effort route as going to the site and register. Don’t worry though, its free! Many argue that the internet’s basic structure was meant for sharing, and i tend to agree. But if your work is important to you, its a good idea to keep your bases covered.

Are you happy with your current CC situation? Do you know of any other platforms that give you a CC license? Or another way of getting the CC license?
I hope this post helped if you were looking into it!

Day 19: Cofee round up, Thank you readers!

I noticed that coffee has been pretty simple for me to post about. I’m thinking this might be part of my niche, and i guess i will be thinking about the experience of 30DoC. I don’t strictly follow the thirty days themes, but i am putting craftsmanship into everyday of June.

I have been happy about it, and was surprised that my site traffic increased! I’m glad to know that some of the skills i have researched have been helpful or at least pleasurable to readers like you! =)

Thank you for the support!
