I would often find myself sitting at work thinking about some interesting dish I'd love to make. Or I would be reading some food news online, wishing I had someone with whom to discuss it. It was like my mind was full of ideas, concepts, and they were nearly bursting the seams of my brain to escape. I had this constant yearning that I couldn't put my finger on... something that just kept tugging at me.
One year ago today, I took some friends' advice to start a blog in order to post recipes and food ideas I had. So, I figured what the Hell, and started researching a good place to start a free blog. Then I wrote my very first post! It proved to be the spigot... the pressure relief valve that I needed to release all this (for lack if a better word) "stuff" swimming around in my head.
Now, a year later, Frank About Food sits at nearly 3,200 hits, has its own Facebook page, has delved into some great food and drink topics, has covered food programming, and has provided you with a wide range of recipes.
And all this could not have happened without YOU! So, I'm sending my sincere thanks to each one of you who have supported Frank About Food!
Now... for a contest!!! What do you have to do to enter? Leave a comment here! I want your suggestions and feedback! What do you like about my project? What could be better? What topics would you like to see covered?
From all the comments, I will randomly select a winner. The prize could vary depending on your location. If you are local, it could be a gift certificate to a local eatery such as Instant Karma. If you aren't, it could be a bag of Cottage Small Coffee Roasters coffee!
One caveat... there must be a minimum of 10 comments for a winner to be selected! Contest deadline has been extended until Friday, Dec. 14 at 6:00pm CST!
