Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger February 2013

These past few months have been hectic and it feels like we’ve had one cold after another. Ah, the joys of winter in preschool. However, I finally got the last roundup posted and I promise that this month I will not be late, either with my post or the roundup! I’m especially excited to participate this month because it will be Valentine’s Day. I think that Shirley of Gluten-free Easily, the queen of gluten-free baking and hostess of an amazing Valentine’s day party would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day adoption. What amazing gluten-free blogger would you like to adopt this month? Share in the comments! Also, if you leave your Twitter Name in comments I’ll try to give you a shout out on Twitter, just for fun and to raise awareness about our event.

Here’s how you participate.

1) Pick a gluten-free blogger whose recipes you admire and adopt them by commenting on this post with your name, blog name and their name and blog name.

*Blogger’s recipes must all be gluten-free or have a way to sort and read ONLY gluten-free recipes
*Please pick a different blogger every time you participate
*Please pick a blogger that has not been adopted yet this month!

2) Pick one (or two!) of your gluten-free blogger’s recipes to try.

3) Make the recipe, photograph it and write a post in your blog introducing the blogger and their recipe.

*Follow the recipe as written, as closely as possible. And, please don’t print their recipe on your post- just provide your reader a link to their original recipe.
*Provide a link to this event announcement page

4) Email me at adoptaglutenfreeblogger[at]gmail[dot]com with your photo of the recipe, the URL of your post, name of the recipe and the URL of the original blogger’s recipe post. PLEASE SIZE PHOTO TO BE A MAXIMUM OF 500 pixels wide. Otherwise I will have to resize it manually and after the first one or two I start to cry sad tears of weary despair. You don’t want me crying while I post, do you?

5) Post YOUR POST’s URL in a comment to this post, and if possible please try to visit two other blogger’s posts that are posted here (and comment!).

*The goal is to make this event more interactive and fun!

Sign up BEFORE February 13(loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)
Post your Review and Email me by February 28 (firm deadline, no foolin’)

If you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to adopt a gluten-free blogger. Sign up to adopt a blogger, write a review of one of their recipes, including your name (or pen name), the recipe URL and recipe title. Then take a photo of the completed recipe (if you can) and EMAIL ME the review and photo. I will create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

I already started the adoption by adopting Shirley of Gluten-free Easily. Now it is your turn!
