SEATTLE’S MOST INFLUENTIAL BLOGGER just might be a tall, blonde mother of two named Deanna Duke, a hardcore sustainability advocate with a soft, entertaining online touch.
Duke’s green-living site, thecrunchychicken.com (“Converting people to Crunchianity since 2007”), draws 50,000 hits a month and has been touted and quoted by The Economist, The New York Times (three times since last year), and, most recently, National Enquirer.
All this while exploring such esoteric and hair-shirt-sounding topics as keeping backyard ducks, growing blackberries in pots, living refrigerator-free (an incipient trend Duke thinks is actually earth-unfriendly), and the environmental impact of depilating one's nether regions (Brazilian wax vs. disposal razors vs. homemade sugar packs).
If those topics mentioned are hair-shirt-sounding, well, I guess cloth wipes, peeing on your plants and DivaCups need more promotion as they should be topping the list.
You can read the rest of the profile in the actual article. And feel free to leave a comment. I'm still wondering why the picture they did of me looks like something out of South Park. I'm surprised I'm not shooting flames out of my ass.
I just have one thing to say, "Respect mah authoritah!"
