Something very cool happened to my blog this week.
Whilst eating my lovely cafeteria-style dinner at work my iPhone bleeped and told me: “Congratulations! You’ve been Freshly Pressed!”
Excuse me? Quoi?! What on earth for?! Surely this is a typo. With all the incredible bloggers in the food world, I’m a little shocked (and thankful) to have been noticed by WordPress editor Krista. Thanks to Krista’s interest in this article my blog traffic has tripled and my followers have doubled. How awesome to have your hard work and efforts pay off with a little recognition and exposure?
I was also awarded ‘Illuminating Blog’, by Stella today. Thank you Stella for noticing, and nominating me. In accordance with the Rules of Blog Awards, I am to tell you one random fact about myself and nominate 5 other blogs for the Illuminating Blog Award.
1) For more on the Illuminating Blog Award visit this site.
2) Random Fact: I am a Tarot Card reader. Though I haven’t done a spread in many months. Yes, it’s true.
3) Five Blogs I’d like to nominate for the same award:
All of these are blogs I’ve recently started following, and though some of them already have decent followings, I nominate them for keeping me entertained!
Work is nuts busy these next few days, and as I’ve had split days off for three out of the past four weeks- I can’t promise any profound posts in the next few days. Not having two days off in a row more than once in a whole month and having your fire alarm beeping in your ear, construction in and on the building, etc… is really not the best combination, now is it?
It’s terrible. And I’m tired.
I’d love to bake a pie or some extravagant loaf of bread with that delicious pickle juice that’s sitting in the freezer, waiting for me… but I’m having a nice relaxed afternoon and much anticipated dinner at The Black Hoof with my lovely significant other tomorrow. (Seriously, check their site, we’re going to eat horse. Don’t hate me.)
So… no pies. No pickle juice bread.
Ciao for now, and to followers old and new: Thank You very much for your care and comments this week, you’ve really put a smile on my face!
PS- I’m mentally exhausted, and I want what he’s having:
And I’ve added myself to the Blogflux directory, among other sites such as Tastespotting, and FoodGawker.
