Welcome to the official page for the Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger Event!
Wondering what this event is all about?
In February of 2008, I had the following idea:
In the interest of getting to know members of our gluten-free community better and motivating ourselves to try each other’s mouth-watering recipes, I suggest that we each â€œadoptâ€ a different GF blogger and stake our claim at this month’s hosting blog’s post announcing the event. Please post your name (or nickname), the name of your blog, and the name of your adoptee and their blog. Include their URL if you like. Once you’ve adopted a specific blogger for this month, other bloggers can’t adopt that blogger THIS MONTH. (But next month his/her blog is fair game!) Then write a post sometime in the next two weeks before the deadline about your adopted blogger, his/her blog, and a recipe that you tried recently. I think it is probably best to just link to your adopted blogger’s recipe rather than posting it in your blog. Please follow your chosen blogger’s recipe as printed, making only minor changes for reasons of allergy or veg/non-veg diet.
The host of the event will keep a running list of bloggers that have been adopted at the bottom of their post. If we get repeats, the blogger who posted their claim earliest gets the blogger, and the host will contact any bloggers who need to pick a new blog. (This is so we can discover the maximum number of GF bloggers and recipes!)
Once you adopt a blogger, you have until the event end date (approximately 2 weeks from the opening of event) to try a recipe and blog about blogger and their recipe. Link back to this event announcement in your post and email the host with your name, blog name, your chosen blogger’s name and blog name, URL of your post about your blogger AND, if possible, a pretty picture you took of their dish that you made. The host will then do a round-up post of all entries.
*To be eligible, your blogger must either be a gluten-free blogger OR consistently blog gluten-free recipes with a gluten-free tag for recipes that makes them easy to find. New GF bloggers would be terrific candidates for adoption. Recipe must be GF as written by the original poster.*
So far, this event has been very successful as a monthly event, and we have had volunteers lining up to participate. If you’d like to host one of these events, please email me or post in the comments to this post. :)
*You don’t have to host recipes at your site to ADOPT someone and blog about their recipes. Also, for those who are adopted- don’t worry! You don’t have to reciprocate and adopt anyone (not even the person who adopted you) unless you want to.. :) It would almost be more fun if people Didn’t automatically adopt the person who adopted them- to maximize the new blogs you get exposed to!
