The Next Food Blog Star....could it be me???????

Wow, quite a whirlwind!  I start a blog, I start a second blog, I join Foodbuzz (an online food blog community), and suddenly, I'm a contestant in Project Food Blog. The next food blog star, could it be me?  Sure it can!

Crumb Coat Cakes          Apron Strings Baking          Foodbuzz          Project Food Blog

12 weeks of challenges, a panel of 3 judges, and the reader's choice vote.  That's what I'm up against....piece of cake! (thought that might be the proper cliche to use in a baking blog)  So here we go!

Challenge #1


What defines me as a food blogger?

Let's see...


I am a mother of four.  3 girls: McKennan, Josie, and Sophia (pray for me) and 1 boy: Aiden (pray a little harder).  Once number 4 came along, I swapped a career of 15 years for 15 extra pounds.  What can I say?  I have a wicked sweet tooth, and more time in the kitchen = more bowls to lick.

Do I have any culinary training?  No.
Did I grow up baking with my mother?  No.
Do I have a background in writing?  No.

So who am I?

Just a gal.  A gal that loves to be in the kitchen.  A gal with a laptop, cheap camera, and absolutely no free time.

 

But mostly, a gal with a voice.  I love sharing a little of me with a lot of you. Or maybe it's the other way around, I share a lot of me with a little of you.  Either way, I love it! Whether I have 1 reader, or thousands, I get to share something I enjoy.  Unless I burn it.  Then really, no one will get to enjoy it. The story, however, could be fun to hear!  That's what it's about, fun.  Fun for me and hopefully fun for you.


Why should I be the next food blog star?


This is where I should go on and on about what makes me better than the other 1800 interesting and talented contestants.  The thing is, a blog is basically a public journal to share your own personal interests and views.  So is one better than the next?  That's a matter of opinion formed by each individual reader.

I have a passion for food, especially the sweet stuff!  Actually some people may classify it as an addiction.  Passion?  Addiction?  One thing is certain, I can't live without it! And you never know, we just might share the same "passion".  So stop by every now and then, you might like what you see!











Why should I be the next food blog star?  Why not?!
