I'm enjoying reading classmate Marcie Barnes' Feeding Blackmail blog, where she's examining health issues in the context of every day life. She's providing useful consumer information in a manner that's easy and fun to read. Marcie's doing a good job of providing the facts in her posts so her readers can make informed decisions on their own, but she's also including enough of her opinions to give readers a sense of where she stands.
What I love most is the tone of the blog: Marcie comes across as a real person who's sorting through the food information just like everyone else. She does so in a manner that doesn't leave me feeling guilty for not always being green or organic. However, her writing is persuasive enough to suggest I try.
I've not been swept into the organic health food craze, but it's nice to learn more about it from someone who's already navigated a great deal of the information that's out there.
