Wow. Right out of left field, a couple days ago a staff writer for Money, a popular financial magazine in the US, contacted me about an article on shaving they’re doing. They had come across my shaving videos during the course of their research and wanted to get my input on some of the topics they had come up with: how to save money by using a DE razor instead of an expensive cartridge razor, traditional shaving lather, shaving brushes, etc. What really impressed me was how intelligent the questions were–they had obviously done some decent research into the topic!
We talked for over 30 minutes and they said they’d call me back in a couple weeks to “fact check” the article before it goes to the printer. Its slated for their April issue (which I found suprising: I used to be a freelance writer years ago and magazines needed a solid three month lead time. I guess technology has shortened that up quite a bit). I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll mention my video page or this blog…who knows?
