Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: March Edition

March 16th, 2009 yum Posted in Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger, Blog Event, Gluten Free Blogs, Web Event 15 Comments »

The Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger Event started over one year ago and the response has been very positive. Participation in recent months has been terrific, so let’s keep it up! I hope you will join me in adopting a gluten-free blogger and trying their recipes this month.

Participation is simple.

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

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.

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.

*Note: This is a new email set up just for this event. Hopefully this will make it easier to keep track of entries. If you have general questions, please don’t email me at this address but post them here so everyone can read the question (and answer). Companies are NOT welcome to email me at this address, unless a representative is planning to adopt a blogger and write about it. ;)

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 March 25th (loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)
Post your Review and Email me by April 1 (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’ll create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

I’ll start the adoptions by adopting Jill Elise at Hey, That Tastes Good.

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: August

August 22nd, 2008 yum Posted in Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger, Blog Event, Web Event 10 Comments »

event3b.jpgIf you’ve been thinking it’s about time for the next installment of adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger… you’d be right! Cheryl was kind enough to host the event last month while I was doing research in Northern Japan, and hopefully you saw her wonderful roundup of gluten-free blogger adoption posts. If you’d like to be in on the fun and host a future adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger-event, comment with the month you’d like to host and I’ll add you to the list at the adoption headquarters.

I’ve really enjoyed the chance to make some of my fellow GF bloggers’ delightful recipes. So far I’ve made Pig in the Kitchen’s veggie burgers and rolls, Naomi’s pita bread, Kate’s sandwich wrap, Accidental Veg Naomi’s french bread and zucchini, and Karina’s Vegan Mac N’ Cheese, and I enjoyed each and every dish. If you haven’t participated before in our event, there’s no time like the present.

To participate, please sign up in the comments with your name (or pen name), the name of your blog, and the name and blog name of your adopted blogger! Then just write a post about your adopted blogger between August 25 – Sep 8, having tried one of their recipes and blogged about it. Please follow your chosen blogger’s recipe as printed, making only minor changes for reasons of allergy or veg/non-veg diet. . I think it’s probably best to just link to your adopted blogger’s recipe rather than posting it in your blog. Don’t forget to link back to this blog event in your post, and after you post, EMAIL Me at seamaiden399[at]gmail[dot]com with the URL for your post and an attached PHOTO that you took of the food (very important if you want to be included in the round up!) Here’s my proposed adoption for this month, to start the ball rolling.

I’m Seamaiden, at the Book of Yum, and I’d like to “adopt” La Tartine Gourmand this month because… her food styling makes me swoon and I’m dying to try one of her tasty and beautiful gluten-free tart recipes!

Now I’ve “adopted” La Tartine Gourmand for this month, and so other bloggers *sniff* can’t “adopt” her THIS MONTH. (But next month her blog is fair game!) I will write a post sometime in the next two weeks (Deadline: Sep 8) about her blog, and a recipe that I tried recently.

I’ll keep a running list of bloggers that have been adopted at the bottom of this list. If we get repeats, the blogger who posted their claim earliest “gets” the blogger, and I’ll 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 (2 weeks from opening of event- this month until Sep 8th to try a recipe and blog about blogger and their recipe.

*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.*

We have no one signed up to host next month’s event. If you’d like to host next month, please email me or post in comments. :)

*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!

Our Adopted GF Bloggers, for the Aug 25 – Sep 8th “Adopt a GF Blogger” Event
1) La Tartine Gourmand (adopted by Sea of the Book of Yum)
2) Heidi of 101 Cookbooks (adopted by Cheryl of Gluten Free Goodness)
