A couple of months back I decided to jump in and do this thing I was hearing about called Foodie Penpals. It was created by and orchestrated by Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean blog. I literally don't know how she does it....there's over a thousand foodie penpals! She is also starting a dietetics internship in the next couple of weeks so she must be going crazy! (Actually she told me she is swamped, but is still awesome enough to round up some vegetarian posts for a new series I have coming up.)
I had the pleasure of having Hollie at Fueled by LOLZ send me a package this month. Have you checked out her blog? I hadn't until this month and that is the cool thing about this program. You are able to connect with new bloggers each month! She is an adorable and very enthusiastic blogger!
Thanks Hollie! :-)
Be sure to check out Lindsay's blog for more details on Foodie Penpals!
In other news...it's getting real in here.
I am banning myself from reading other blogs...temporarily.
Recently I've been getting jealous of other bloggers' popularity and have been feeling an intense need to be liked by others. It's very silly and very self-centered, so I just need to refocus and remind myself that it's all good.
I don't need to be on anyone's blogroll (although it's an honor when I am). I don't need a bajillion comments (although I adore hearing from you all). I don't need Facebook likes or Twitter follows (although I've had some fun Twitter convos recently). I don't need to be so obsessive about these things that they take over my life. No bueno. I need to remember my blog is growing and improving each month. Slowly but surely. Like a cute turtle just doin' her thing.
I just want a space to be creative, and a place to connect and encourage others. I might even take a couple of days off of blogging. Who knows. Um except for the last guest post I did this month at No Sugar Sweet Life....check it out?
I love you all and will be back to reading blogs soon! :-)
