A Good Chat with Ginny Goodwin

Friday, December 31st, 2010

I interviewed Ginnifer Goodwin two years ago for Page Six Magazine (seems I don’t have a copy of that up on my site though, hmm…must find out where it’s gone to). She was fun and fabulous then.

And when I interviewed her again this month’s January/February 2011 double issue of Health magazine, she was just as easy to talk to—she’s the kind of girl you feel like you’ve known since high school.

Ginny, by the way, was the person I picked when I was asked in an interview what celebrity I’d tag as a “dating optimist.” She really lives with the spark of hopefulness and authenticity that it takes to look on the bright side of yourself and love.

Check out what she had to say about what health means to her, how she struggled with her weight as a kid, and the two celebrity photos she’d consider sticking on her fridge for inspiration in the story Ginnifer Goodwin: Healthy is Beautiful on

Perhaps something in the piece will speak to you as helpful as we head into a brand new year.

2011, wow. Hope it’s a healthy and beautiful one for all of us!


My App Hits Korea!

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

All the Koreans in the house say “Hollaaa!”

My App, Half-Orange Optimisms, is now reaching out to a new Korean audience, thanks to a new book called 98 Money Making Apps that has featured my App. Well, hmm, at least I think that’s what the book is called. That’s the cover on the left there, so if you do read Korean and it turns out the book is called “Loser People Who Made The Suckiest Apps of the Year,” will you let me know?

I was interviewed for the book about what inspired the App and how I designed it and got it made, and it ended getting its own chapter. What fun, right?

Here’s a shot of some of my chapter:

An added bonus: My App falls right after a chapter on the App for the amazing Cyanide and Happiness—and if you don’t know this brilliantly cute comic and their books (their new one is Ice Cream and Sadness), you must check it out! And get their App, too, while you’re at it, I just did.

You can buy 98 Money Making Apps through the LeeChung Soft website if you’re interested and, you know, caught up on your Korean.
