Interested in contributing to “She Ordered What?!?”
Y’all, I’m finally planning travel again soon! 🙂
Let’s not get too excited, as I’m heading to semi-rural CLE and NJ (but also NYC). Then I’m off to Chicago and Atlanta. And, let’s not forget CLEMSON! With a fighting chance that I do indeed make it to Singapore this fall too! New “experiential posts” soon to come, friends!
1) What if I get served something I don’t like?
SOW: That’s always part of the risk/reward. It’s perfectly acceptable, and encouraged, by the primary author of this blog (me!) to set a few limitations which might help your experience be a bit more enjoyable. (See my restrictions about maple flavors and scallops. I also advise servers that I don’t drink “spirits” or coffee drinks) You don’t have to surrender total control!
2) What if I see a few things I think I’ll like, but am not sure.
SOW: Again, you don’t have to rely solely on your server! I’ve often ordered using the “I can’t decide amongst [insert options here]…” method.
In fact, I had (another!) great experience at Zingerman’s Roadhouse last week when my colleagues and I had a team dinner. I had read rave reviews about their Mac ‘n Cheese, but I hadn’t tried it yet. And, y’all, the list is pretty enticing! So, I had our server, Josh, choose a Mac ‘n Cheese dish for me. He didn’t skip a beat, and he brought me this delightful dish!
3) If I’m not a writer, can I still contribute to the blog?
SOW: Absolutely! Guest posts should be written in your tone, using your words to describe your experience. However, I’m happy to edit whenever someone asks for help!
(Disclaimer: I often add relevant links to guest posts to provide additional information for readers – and I usually don’t ask permission!)
4) How do I go about writing a guest post?
SOW: Please just capture as much of your experience as you can through notes and pictures (or video if permitted!), and then describe your experience. You can email me a Word document and attachments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!
