Ask a Monican #34 with Costco News

Breaking Costco News!

They have turkey ciabatta sandwiches at the food bar!costco food line

I picked up one to have a bite / for Ben’s lunch. It looks just okay upon first inspection, but is served up warm and you can tell the bread is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.costco turkey sandwich

The inside bites are good! It has turkey, pesto, onion and tomato. Ben really liked it.costco ciabatta sandwich

    Love your segments! : ) I’m a new blogger, too…so it’s totally helpful!
    And cereal, I’m addicted to cheerios and cocoa puffs…I don’t want to look at the sugar content for the latter!

  2. Angie says

    I just noticed the turkey sandwiches today at Costco too! I was excited because my husband loves the pizza but I find it greasy. It’ll be a nice change.

  3. says

    I’m not trying to be a pain or anything, but since you talked about ads and stuff, I thought I’d mention it: Having moving ads (.gif or video?) on both sides of your text is really distracting when I’m trying to read. Do companies give you a choice on what type of ad you put up?

  4. says

    I used to get blisters all the time too! I would joke that my toes could simply just touch each other and a blister would form…switched over to (expensive..but worth it!) socks without any cotton and my problem was solved. Now I look at cotton like the devil haha…but it really works!

  5. says

    I just found your blog – I’m training for my first half marathon so it’s great to read about other people’s experiences with running!

    That Costco sandwich looks good but the 1/4 pound hot dog sign in the background made me dry heave a little.

  6. says

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who “unapologetically” (gosh, I don’t know how to spell that) goes through cereal like a crazy person and loves it as a treat.

  7. says

    Haha, when I un-muted my computer to listen to the vlog I forgot I was playing Pandora earlier [classical calms my students!] and thought you had music playing in the background 😛

    Thanks for all of the blog tips! I’m still a newbie and will be for a while so keep the tips coming [please]!

  8. says

    Thanks for the Ask a Monican about growing readership and increasing followers. I’ve learned it really is a slow process, yet I’m encouraged because it is still happening, however slow it may be. I’m not considering ads yet, but will definitely at some point so this helpful as well. Thank you also for the link to Katy’s site. I will definitely bop over there and see what she has to say.

      One more question – You said you started advertising with Foodbuzz and then changed over to Glam (?). Is that what the company is called? Do you mind sharing a link or the information you used to find out more about the company?

    I love your video posts, they are very informative & they crack me up!! I am going to have to look into getting some running socks because right now I wear cheap ones and get bad blisters in my arches. That is if I can ever get rid of my shin splints!! Haha
