Difference between: coffee and decaf coffee

Okay folks, small blog update before I get into this one.

I started a new job this week. 

I’ve transitioned from being a freelance writer on the side, to being an actual, full-time, writer and editor for a well known marketing company. This is awesome.

In lieu of the big changes happening in my life, I thought it was time to take a gander at the Difference Between category on this blog – the one I post in the most frequently.

I started this blog in April of 2013. (Three year anniversary!) My first Difference Between post was in July of 2013, on Russian dressing and Thousand Island dressing. I’ve done a Difference Between post once a week, with few exceptions, for two years and nine months. 

And I think it’s time to switch it up.

I have an idea of what I want to take my once-a-week post place, but I’m not sure enough to announce it just yet.

In the meantime! Feel free to continue emailing me with Difference Between post ideas, because I’ll probably pick it up at some point.

Here’s the last Difference Between post for awhile: coffee versus decaf coffee.

Difference between: green tea and black tea

Do you drink tea? Just within the past year I’ve started to develop a taste for it.

I’ve found it can be a nice substitution for coffee, when you’re say, someone who could drink coffee constantly and you’re trying not to. And tea does have less caffeine than coffee.

How much less, exactly? We’ll find out as we examine the difference between green tea and black tea.

Difference between: raw milk and pasteurized milk

This may be one of the more controversial Difference Betweens.

This is also one of those posts that could easily go on forever in a million different directions, so I’m going to try to give it to you on the straight and narrow: the difference between raw milk and pasteurized milk.
