More and more, though, the Texas BBQ Posse co-founder has been live-blogging from the center of the action. During the Blues, Bandits & BBQ cook off in Oak Cliff in September, he regularly posted items and photographs over two days and one long night.
"Can't believe I'm still standing," he wrote then. "It's 3:30 am and it's finally cooled down, after a pretty strong little thunderstorm..."
On our recent "anniversary" tour to Central Texas, Wilkins tried something new: Posting from the car between stops. I drove. He rode shotgun.
That means transferring photos from his camera to computer, writing, and then uploading everything to this site through a Verizon aircard.
“That’s about as fresh as it gets,” he says of his instant blogging. One drawback: It’s hard to proofread in a moving vehicle, he says.
