My new friend, Tess, at Slow Cooking Kitchen nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you Tess. Please be sure to check out her fabulous blog!
I was surprised and honored and humbled all at the same time.
Note: This is an award we bloggers give to each other. We "pay it forward" so to speak. It helps bloggers to discover other food bloggers.
There is NOTHING as special as being recognized by a fellow blogger. We all know what it takes to put out a half decent post a few times a week:
The bleary-eyed 1 AM editing; spell check doesn't know "food words" so you concentrate so much on those and you end up misspelling words like "food;"
the spammers and "link lurkers" who try to post E-bay links on your blog or ... uhummm... other questionable things...
... and the friends who "unfriend you" on Facebook because you are so busy putting up your blog so you miss the midnight chat request - and they get insulted.
I want all of my readers who have blogs to know, I learn from each and every one of you every day. I learn from those who don't have blogs who give me constructive feedback. I think my recipes were always good but my pictures, not so much. I am getting better.
One thing I've found since I began food blogging, food bloggers are the NICEST people!
