Yesterday Rocked!

First, an award
I am so pleased to have won a DMBLGIT (Does My Blog Look Good In It) award. It was hosted by Sara of Ms. Adventures in Italy and judged by Sara and some other amazing bloggers: Helen of Tartelette, Robyn of The Girl Who Ate Everything, Sara of The Kitchen Pantry, and Susan of Food Blogga.

For Originality
Poires au vin rouge et blanc
What is DMBLGIT? Jennifer of Bake or Break describes it as a friendly monthly competition among food bloggers. Each food blogger can submit one picture from their blog for the given month. All of those pictures are reviewed by a panel of judges, who score each picture in three categories: edibility, aesthetics, and originality. The host then compiles the scores to determine the winners. There are three overall winners for those photos with the highest point totals in all three categories combined. Also, there are winners in each of the three categories.

Check out all the winners and entries here. I feel honoured to be in the company of such amazing food bloggers and photographers.

Next month’s DMBLGIT is being hosted by Habeas Brulee. To find out more about DMBLGIT, check out this site.

Second, a milestone
Yesterday, I also had my 10,000th visitor. At the time, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find out who it was, but through the amazing technology of Statcounter and the coincidence of someone to leave a comment around that time (albeit in their own blog responding to a comment I had left!), I was able to determine it was the Food Rockz Man from a very cool blog called Food Rockz. I will be sending along a little box of treats as a thank you. I’ve only been food blogging since January, but I’ve been obsessed with food for a lot longer than that! Food does rock.

Happy blogging!
