An Interview and an Initiation

This post is going to be short as I’ve got a zillion things to do to be ready to leave for Nashville and Blissdom tomorrow. K, where did January go again?

Meals for Others.
First of all, a big thank you to everyone who opened up and commented on my last post. I asked you if you ever received a meal during a difficult period in your life -or if you were in the habit of passing along food to friends and family.

Your answers warmed my hearts and assured me that, yes, random acts of kindness are still alive and well in 2011…Look for more on this topic soon, as it is research for an exciting new project I am working on!

Interview with the Canadian Weblog Awards.
I’m thrilled to be featured today on the CWA homepage in a interview I had with the organizers. Head HERE to read about where I find inspiration, who my mentors are, how offline people react to my online writing and much more.

My Husband, the blogger.
Well, not really, but he’s been initiated! In 2011 he joined the Simple Bites team of contributors as the only male (brave soul that he is).
Today marks his first ever blog post and he tackles a major issue. You won’t want to miss it. Head HERE to read the post and welcome Danny to the wonderful world of blogging.

Now, I’m off for my first ever blogging conference! You can follow along on my Simple Bites Twitter stream,as I’ll be tweeting much of the event.
