‘Deadliest’ memoir to be released

Posted by Geeky Swedes on March 29th, 2010

Captain Sig Hansen, one of the captains on the popular Discovery show The Deadliest Catch has written his memoir, “North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters,” which is set to be released this week.

As a Ballard native, Hansen spoke candidly to our news partner the Seattle Times about changes to our neighborhood. “You won’t hear Norwegian spoken on the streets of Ballard anymore,” he tells the Times. “It’s become one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Seattle.” The Times writes that he thinks the Sunday Farmers Market is “frequented by sandal-wearing recyclers … storefronts that once sold hardware and ship supplies are now boutiques … It’s not clear to me what they sell.” Although fame isn’t always all that glamorous, he has welcomed the opportunity to bring international attention to the fishing industry. He’s also been able to take a young cancer patient out for a day of crab-fishing on the famous Northwestern through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. You can read more about his memoir in this piece by Jack Broom.

    Thank you, I’ve just been looking for information about this subject for ages and yours is
    the best I have found out till now. But, what about the bottom line?

    Are you certain in regards to the source?

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone
    else experiencing problems with your website. It appears as if some of the text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had
    this happen previously. Kudos

    I’ve heard you can make money off of advertisers. Is it really a significant enough amount to make it worth it? Or does the real benefit in blogging come from the exposure you get? I’m a bellydancer and I dance at private parties and events. How could I use a blog to get more business? I’ve heard about people who have products to sell using blogs, but I don’t have a “product”, just me!.

    I have had an online magazine for 3 years, and we are looking to spice up the website. We’ve used Joomla, but are now looking for something new. Is WordPress better than Joomla? We will be adding content rich items on the site: videos, etc. Any suggestions?.
