I’m Thankful for…the Internet
Here’s a little pre-Thanksgiving What I’m Thankful for List, Internet Version. And a thought – I wouldn’t have met any of these lovely people without this blog or Twitter.
That blows my mind.
The picture above is a group of local food blogging ladies. We all met for dinner a few weeks ago and had a rip-roaring good time. From left-to-right: Kelli Abrahamian of I Had a Delicious Time, Amanda Rettke of I Am Baker, Shaina Olmanson of Food for My Family, moi, Kate Selner of Kate in the Kitchen, and Crystal Grobe of Cafe Cyan.
I received boatloads of photography advice this week from David Sherman, who I met through a networking event hosted by Joel E. Carlson, who met and interviewed both David and me (and Kate and Crystal, above) via Twitter. Think on that for a minute. It rocks.
John and I had a gorgeous meal at Corner Table last week. I met Chef Scott Pampuch through Twitter, when he judged the Kingfield Market Berry Bake-Off and guest-cooked in the 128 Cafe Food Truck, which is also how I met Jill Wilson (see above). How great is that?
I get awesome feedback every single day from those of you who read this blog, follow my tweets, follow my Fresh Tart Facebook page, or read my posts at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly. I love hearing from everyone! In my wildest dreams I never thought I’d be cooking, writing about, taking pictures of, and chatting about food all day, every day. Again, the mind is blown.
Thanks for reading and Happy Thanksgiving (from Puppy Louis too)!
