The wonderful Kristen at Dine & Dish is the brainchild behind the Adopt-a-Blogger program, where veteran bloggers get paired up with newer bloggers in an effort to guide them a bit along the blogging trail. This is the fourth year of the program, and my second time participating. Blogging has changed and evolved so much since I started, and my own site right along with it. Once the blogging bug hits, you instantly get immersed in a whole new world, learning HTML code, navigating the path to SEO, taking food shots so good it while make your mouth drool, making new friends in a great tight community, utilizing social networking to further your blog, and much more. A world where hunting down “the best” slice of pizza all the sudden becomes “research.” A world where you might drive an hour because you heard about an amazing cheese shop or sprinkle shack or for a blogger meet-up. It’s a fun world, and it’s now my turn to introduce you to my newbie.
April from April’s Home Cooking is from sunny California and has six kids. She has been blogging now for nearly two years, and given the spate of sweet treats she writes about, her site is not one you want to visit on an empty stomach. If savory is more your speed, the quesadillas she made recently are a great weeknight meal, and so easy to customize based on what everyone likes or doesn’t like. Have fun poking around her site, and April, welcome to the club!
OMFG. ‘Nuff said.
Will tell you all about this next week. Promise.
