Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, but I want to spread a little thankfulness today. I am so thankful for you! Thank you for taking the time to check in and read my blog. Food It Forward began as an idea that I couldn’t shake for nearly a year. My new year’s resolution for 2011 was to get this site going and though it took until August for posts to become steady, it still happened.
Now, I’m not trying to kid myself into thinking I have a more popular blog than I truly do. I know how many people read FoFo each day. I check! While the numbers steadily grow (as do the number of FoFo’s Facebook fans), I become more and more inspired to forward as much food information as I know how. So this year, I raise my glass(es) of coffee, sparkling cider, wine and more coffee to the readers of Food It Forward. May this blog grow to be all I wish.
My goal for 2012 is to be featured on foodbuzz.com, a hub for food blogs. The exposure would be fantastic, of course, but my main motive is to be able to attend the 2012 FoodBuzz Conference. Sure, I could have bought tickets and went this year (it’s in San Francisco), but I’d rather go with more than just my toes wet. Also, FoodBuzz sponsors bloggers who have been featured and tickets ain’t so cheap. Now that I have put my goal out there, I can’t whimper away from it, can I?
To say thank you, I’d like to send one reader a $20 gift card to either Starbucks or Peet’s, your choice! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling me which coffee shop you’d rather visit, that’s it! Oh, and go tell someone you know about Food It Forward too!
