New Kind of Post

Dear Readers and Followers:

You may have noticed the new box over there on the bottom right with a picture of me at the farmers’ market and wondered what that's about. It’s for a contest, Project Food Blog. I am a member of FoodBuzz, a community of food bloggers and they are having a contest to crown the best food blogger. There is a series of 10 challenges judged by well known food personalities. The first step was to create my contestant profile which you can see by clicking on the link in that box. The first challenge is due soon, so in the next few days, you’ll see a post labeled as a Project Food Blog Challenge.

I decided to participate in the contest as a personal challenge. I want to stretch my limits as a blogger since I’m such a newbie. Some of the challenges are far out of my comfort zone. The first one is to write a 1000 word post with at least two pictures describing what is great and unique about my blog and why I should win. This is really not my style – thus the personal challenge part. I’ve been working on the post for a month. For future challenges we don’t have nearly that much time to prepare, so with my busy schedule, I’ll just have to see how it goes.

Anyway, there is a viewer’s choice selection for each round and you can help determine that selection. You must register at www.foodbuzz.com to vote. It doesn’t mean you have to write a blog if you register. There are plenty of people who belong because they are interested in food. There is a lot of information, interesting people, great blogs and good recipes to be found there. So check it out if you’re interested.

And watch for my first challenge post. Coming soon…..
