Please take a minute to hear from our CEO

I took some time to interview our CEO after the article yesterday in the Syracuse Daily Tribune. I made it clear to her that I am, first and foremost, a writer, and am going to be approaching this to get to the truth of the matter. Yet still, we want her to get her voice heard as well. Please, take a minute to hear from our CEO. Read more of this post

Speaking of Crisis Blogging…

I signed up for Twitter last night to try that out, and found myself looking at a blogging (micro-blogging) crisis going on at the time. Check out this article for a full scoop. And yes, it looks like The Illusive Man got in on the mix.

I feel like I could say more, but that would basically be repeating the good work that is already in the article above.

How is this usually handled in blogging? I don’t want to rehash something someone else has written, or steal their visuals, which I feel like is much of what I could accomplish. The tweets I saw even show up in the article. So… yeah. Read and enjoy.

Recall on Syracreamsicle

Hello Salt City Ice Cream fans! My name is David, and I am the new blogger for your favorite Ice Cream. However, just because I am new, does not mean that this is a prank they are pulling on me here in the office. The news I have to give is quite serious.

It has come to our attention that some of our Syracreamsicle Orange Ice Cream may be infected with salmonella. If you have purchased a pint of Syracreamsicle recently, you should return it to the store for a full refund. This is the only flavor of ice cream that may have any problems.

We are taking this issue very seriously. If you have any concerns, please contact us at 315-555-1337, or Also, check for the latest news in this case here at We are not sure where in our process this could have happened, and the recall will help us identify a source, if any, and to make all changes necessary to ensure this does not happen again.

So how do you know if you have salmonella poisoning? Check out these helpful answers on WebMD. If you believe you have eaten contaminated ice cream, please take all necessary actions. However, we believe our recall efforts should avoid any public exposure. Thank you for your continuing business, and rest assured we are doing everything we can to make sure this never happens again.

(Disclaimer: This is part of an assignment about Crisis Blogging. The blog and its author make no actual claims about being a blog dedicated to Salt City Ice Cream, which hopefully is not a real company so that we’re not messing with anyone’s life! If this were a real emergency, please check the CDC, which has information on outbreaks like salmonella or the Zombie Apocalypse. The unfortunate side of this all is I have not landed a job as a professional blogger…)
