Cold Case Viral on Twitter, Food, Obon & Summer Festivals, and more
By Mark & Patti Clifford • Issue #194 • View online
It’s Tuesday, July 10th and we’re on a roll again.
Yup! We’re going to try something new again. As we stated we are still trying to find that magic niche, that keeps you reading our newsletter while we also attract new readers.
To do that we’re always searching for the right content to post. The other day I spent the day scouring Google Trends. Not that it’s the best source of information, but it isn’t bad.
What we found is that there a lot of people wanting to know more about California and the coastal communities than anything else. I guess people are into the ocean and the lifestyle surrounding it just like we are.
I remember as a kid always reading about California and the beaches, girls, surfing, and just hanging out on them. Being from the east coast I had my share of hanging at the coast for years even living on the beach for a while. 
The lure of California though was always in the back of my mind. So after reading those Google trends and seeing that many people in California and around the world like to know the same thing I do, the lifestyle of the coastal communities here in California.
So starting Thursday we will be concentrating on the coastal communities here in California. That means stories on culture, lifestyle, and more from Ventura to Half-Moon Bay and everything in between.
Let us know your thoughts after checking out the first issue on Thursday. Whether you like it or not let us know, we can handle it. Just use the little thumbs up or down below and you can even leave a detailed message if you want? I will write back.
Be Well

Photo by Paul Jimerson
Yesterday I met on Twitter a photographer from Santa Cruz, California by the name of Paul Jimerson (click his name to see his photos). He had retweeted one of my stories I had posted about Monterey and Plastic Straws. This retweet led to a conversation with him and my viewing of some of his work. The photos were fantastic and I wanted to share them with you since we are embarking on a new direction with coastal communities.
I plan to post a picture of his in every newsletter. Through his photos and our words, I hope you get to feel and appreciate this beautiful coast the way we do.
