Maureen from Orgasmic Chef is on my blog today, guest posting for me. I cannot begin to tell you how honored I feel.
Maureen was one of the earliest food bloggers who showed me what food blogging should be like. Almost half of the wonderful Food bloggers that I know today are from her blog, introduced by her through her weekly interviews at ‘Food Writer Fridays’. She also gave me tips and guidance whenever I needed them. She has supported me every step of the way, with her genuinely encouraging words and appreciative comments.
She is just not a phenomenal Food blogger, she is also an extremely intuitive person who can truly see through the common place needs of her fellow bloggers and sets out to find solution. Which is how Easy Recipe was born, the recipe plugin that makes uploading recipes easy for even the Tom, Dick and Harrys of the blogging world. That she agreed to guest post for me, and that she decided to even teach me a small guest posting trick along the way is exactly what makes Maureen so special. The trick being if you have a word press blog for both guest and the host, simply upload the guest post with your pictures in your blog, copy paste the HTML in email and send it over. The receiver will simply paste the HTML in her HTML view and hit publish.
That, of course, all, is in addition to the drop dead gorgeous food that she posts every week. The pictures speak for themselves. Need I say more?
I’m thrilled to do a guest post on The Lady 8 Home. I met Minnie when her blog was very new but I could tell in just one post that she was going to be a mover and a shaker in the food blogging community. Her success hasn’t surprised me at all. She writes about food I’ve never heard of in a way that I’m dying to try it. With every post her photos get better and better and we’re all hungry just scrolling down the page.
I’ve just come back from a weekend in Canberra, the capital of Australia. The tourism office there came up with a Human Brochure idea where they would invite some folks who are busy bloggers or social media enthusiasts to visit the city. They chose people into food and wine, adventure, families and arts and culture and each group had a different itinerary. We were all together in just two events.
