I recently attended the International Food Bloggers Conference in Santa Monica, California. My lovely mother was on a panel and asked if I wanted to come and attend the conference with her as her partner in crime. A weekend by the beach, learning about the blogging world, talking food, eating food, and hanging out with the folks? Um, yes. I jumped at the opportunity. Oh the things I learned and the people I met. I even snuck a dinner with grandma and grandpa in there and put my feet in the ocean too (can’t go home without doing that).
Rather than telling you all the things I learned, I think I’ll show you. First of all, you may notice my fancy new blog URL is now simply saltskitchen. Yes, I’m moving up. Gone are the days of blurry photos (unless I’m sitting at my desk and then I just can’t help it, sorry), hello SEO, and more precise recipe writing. Yea, this doesn’t really mean a lot to me either- the words on the paper. BUT I think I’m getting the hang of this thing (11 months later). Now the real question is, how shall I celebrate my 1 year blogging anniversary? How shall I celebrate almost 8 years of dairy free and 2 1/2 years of gluten free life? It’ll be a surprise, but you know it’ll involve chocolate.
You must have had a wonderful time and learned so much. I’ll enjoy the surprise, I’m sure.
hey rebecca, it’s roshni from the conference.i am really excited to try your pie recipe with gingersnap crust. yum
It was great to meet you last week. I’m going to make that gingersnap crust for Thanksgiving with a pumpkin cheesecake. We’ll see how it turns out!Let me know what you make and how it goes.
A terrific example of “show, don’t tell.” Always makes for the most vivid writing, and for sure in this case, “shows” the folks at IFBC just how valuable the conference was! And, I’m totally impressed and a little envious you took action so fast.
