DENVER, Aug. 27 -- Here in Confab City, you can't swing a messenger bag without hitting a blogger; the place is lousy with them. Hundreds are credentialed; here's one worth clicking on.

Your blog: Pam'sHouseBlend.com, born July 2004.

Your real job: IT manager at Duke University Press.

Your blogger name, and why: Pam Spaulding. "Yes, I blog under my name. Boring, right? But this is who I am. I don't blog under a handler. I don't do that. I'm Pam."

Your real name: Pam Spaulding.

Other deets:45, married (to a woman, whom she wed in Vancouver, Canada, in 2004), lives in Durham, N.C.

We're dying to know -- do you actually brew any of that hazelnut-vanilla flavored junk?

In the blog or in real life?

Both.

[Laughs.] I don't drink coffee, actually. [Laughs again.] I know, I know. That's the irony right there. [Laughs some more.] I drink tea. English Breakfast tea with half-and-half.
