fun news for me and you

November 9, 2012 by momm7540

Fun Fun things to tell you about today! Care if I boast a bit?

I’m excited about a few things today.

I was told I should start submitting my recipes to the sites Tastespotting and foodgawker. Awesome, okay. I did that. Little did I know that it would be an impossible task to get my recipes approved or accepted. I tried for months submitting recipe after recipe and for months recipe after recipe was declined. Each time I would be furious and swear that I would never submit another recipe again. Yet, with each recipe I would create I would try it again.

FINALLY!! Tastespotting accepted a recipe. My apple crisp recipe. I was so excited and then started submitting even more recipes. They were declined. I had to laugh and just be happy that one went through and just keep working on my photography. Have you ever visited Tastespotting? If you are ever searching for a recipe, you’ll find it there! I love visiting and getting tons of inspiration.

After all the excitement I ventured over to foodgawker (another great site to drool over!) and tried my luck with them. Success! They accepted my beef roast recipe. I’m on a roll *budump dump* (get it? On a roll…we’re talking about food here…no?)

Chatting with some blogging buddies I was told that there is also a drewllinggawker. Did you know that? Wow, there are so many amazing sites floating around that I never knew about. Thinking a third time must be a charm, I submitted my livingroom and tada. It was accepted.

Stop over and visit my Tastespotting, Foodgawker, and dwellinggawker. Maybe you could click the little heart or star to make them your favorite?

Last but most definitely not least I was presented with another fun opportunity. You all know that I am a contributor to FOLK magazine. FOLK is rising to the stars this past year and seems to keep getting better. Ben, the editor is a mastermind and has set no limits. In his adventure he put together a dream team of bloggers to create a FOLKblog packed full of content. It’s going to be bursting at the seams with stories, recipes, crafts, and so much more. Every day a new blogger will be posting their very best. I’ve been visiting ever day, not because I’m part of the team (Yup! I’m one of the bloggers!) but because it’s on my favorite blogs to read list. Just stop over, you’ll see. Tomorrow will be the BEST day to stop over. *wink* *wink* I’ll be posting my new Thanksgiving mantel. Stop over and visit me on FOLK blog all day tomorrow, see my post, and say,”hi!” I hope to see you there.

Just for you, I’ll give you a a little sneaky-poo.


I’m also going to be sharing how to get a frugal fabulous look for this Thanksgiving. Mark your calendars and visit me tomorrow!

  1. Congratulations! I love Foodgawker, and Dwellinggawker. There is also a Weddinggawker, if you know someone planning a weddingd. There are sooo many recipes on foodgawker, I can easily get caught up in reading them. Everything you can imagine, and things I never heard of.
