When I first started this blog several years ago, there weren't very many food blogs, and there were even fewer dessert blogs. My blog was less than a month old when I ran across a great blog called The Leftover Queen written by Jenn. I realized that she had just started a blogroll for us few foodies, so we could find each other, and I joined as soon as I met the requirements. Jenn had lots of great ideas -- and the techie boyfriend Roberto (now her husband) -- to help her implement them. The Foodie Blogroll even included a forum to grow a community.
Now there are so many foodies in the Blogosphere, that it's hard to wade through the good, the bad and the ugly who appear and disappear instantly.
The Foodie Blogroll has grown exponentially. Casual visitors and new bloggers might not realize that it was started by a fellow blogger just like us. A fellow blogger with big ideas to help other bloggers to not only find each other, but to succeed growing their own blog, and to make the foodie blog community a valuable voice which is respected by industry professionals.
The Foodie Blogroll is free to join, and as the community has grown so have the perks. There are several requirements to meet to eliminate the unsavory. The Foodie Blogroll is here to stay, and here to help foodies in many ways. I like it. It has helped my blog. Go see for yourself how it can help yours.
I'm writing this to "pay it forward." I know it will help you, and it will help Jenn and Roberto, just as they have helped me and thousands of others through The Foodie Blogroll.
Many of you who read my blog are like-minded and like real, natural, organic foods, so visit The Leftover Queen. Jenn and Roberto have moved to their own farm and you can read all about their animals, their garden and the recipes too. Check her sidebar, she has several other blogs of interest. For the art lovers, visit The Art of Roberto Campus. He creates digital art just like I do, except our styles are very different.
