What’s that you say? What happened to the Adopt a gluten-free Blogger event? Good question! After a slight dip in participation, I needed to take a little break to get that “spark” of enthusiasm for the event back. I had a few ideas for modifying the Adopt-a-Gluten-Free-Blogger Event. I thought that it could be fun to set up a page open all year round where bloggers simply “adopted” a blogger on the spot and posted the URL of their adoption post. Then I could create a master-list of adopted bloggers and links to reviews of their specific recipes. Make sense? I thought that would be a nice resource to have, especially when you want to try a new recipe but aren’t sure which one to try… (If you simply love this idea, please let me know and I may try it in future months.)
But, at heart, I still believe the event format can work for us… So I want to give it one more try. It might be a bit late… but I think that with the Holidays coming up, there’s no time like the present to try a new recipe from your favorite gluten-free blogger. Here, dear readers, is your assignment.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find ONE RECIPE suitable for the (Thanksgiving or similar) holidays posted on a GLUTEN-FREE BLOGGER’S website. If they are not a gluten-free blogger, they must at least have a category on their blog allowing readers to sort and read JUST the gluten-free recipes. If you’re stuck- you can try browsing my list of gluten-free bloggers. Sign up in the comments for the post with your name, the blogger’s name that you are adopting AND [this is new, but important!] the name of the recipe you want to try, and its URL! Try the recipe and post about it, telling us a little about the blogger. Please don’t reproduce the bloggers’ recipe in your post- just link back to their recipe. Don’t forget to take a pretty picture! Also, you MUST link back to this event announcement in your post. Then Email Me at seamaiden399[at]gmail[dot]com NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 1st with your name, blog name, the name of the recipe, and the url of your post. Don’t forget to attach your pretty picture!
Please try to sign up to adopt your Blogger BEFORE November 24th if at all possible! Yup, you have ONE WEEK to find a recipe, starting now! If you read about this event AFTER that date, no worries, you can still sign up…
Post BEFORE December 1st and send me your URL POST no later than December 1st.
The roundup is posted HERE.
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’ll create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.
Sound good? Ok! I hope to hear from you all soon- and I look forward to seeing the recipes you select for adoption!
