Episode 7 – Carolyn Kellogg of the LA Times

September 3, 2011 in Episodes, Podcast by JamieTDL

In this episode we (well, Jamie mostly) chat with Carolyn Kellogg–writer, vanguard podcaster, blogger, hair color aficionado, and all around awesome person–about gastrointestinal distress, the fast-paced life of a book blogger, and success despite the inability to plan more than 1 day ahead.

Carolyn Episode 7   Carolyn Kellogg of the LA Times

Our friend Carolyn Kellogg is an LA Times staff writer who covers books and publishing and leads the book blog  Jacket Copy. She is also a member of the board of the National Book Critics Circle.She has served as  editor of LAist, web editor at Marketplace and, many years ago, managing editor of Woodstock.com (the riot-and-fires year).  She currently lives in Los Angeles

Carolyn began blogging about books in 2004, when she had an internet radio show and podcast that was part music, part books. Some weeks, an author would guest DJ. Because her job at the time was pretty darn formal, she needed a pseudonym: Pinky’s Paperhaus was her show name. Then her blog name. Then she left the job, dyed her hair red, and people started calling her Pinky.

Now her hair has changed, and you’re welcome to call her Carolyn. She can be found @paperhaus on Twitter, and am on Facebook and Goodreads and Flickr and other places online. She can be seen discussing publishing in this C-SPAN2 video of a BEA2010 panel and heard interviewing Richard Russo for the LA Public Library’s ALOUD series.

This is the band Monotonix. Someone thought it would be a good idea to let them play in their house.

One of the recurring themes of The To Do List is that you have to “do your own thing” and not chase success in order to find it.  Do yourself a favor and watch some more.
