And the the Foodie Blogger says, WAIT DON'T EAT THAT YET

2 comments
Yes it's true, "Wait! Don't eat that yet!" is a line Amanda has become accustomed too, and it has nothing to do with her having Celiac Disease. It has everything to do about blogging.

We have been blogging for almost two years now and have over 250 posts, and I would say one out of every three occasions when we are eating something that we'd like to to share on the blog, I shout out "Wait! don't eat that yet!" The other two times, I'd shout, "CRAP! I forgot to take a picture."

Blogging has really changed my eating habits. Some would say for the worse (well, at least my manners if anything). I've even done this to my mother-in-law when she makes something nice for Amanda. At least she finds it flattering.

I didn't know the effect blogging would have on my life. I'm always thinking about how I can "spin this" for the blog. Either it's someone emailing me a tip, or seeing something new in the store while shopping around. "Gotta get my phone out and take a picture of it on the shelf and tweet it out to everyone!" "Oh these are good! We have to blog about this." These are my new most commonly used phrases, just ask Amanda.

Now, it's just a matter of remembering or finding the time. We usually go on blogging sprees during the weekend. It's tough. I hate to shatter anyone's dreams, but we typically have posts written up to one month ahead of time. It's hard to keep up sometimes because we are posting every two to three days. If we weren't queued up, we wouldn't be able to blog as often as we do.

Are you thinking of blogging? Let us know! We would love to help you get started and promote your blog. We need some more local gluten free bloggers in Edmonton. Also, we always love to have guest bloggers help us out with posts of their own adventures, findings and ideas about living gluten free. In the meantime, check out some of these Edmonton bloggers that often blog gluten free:

  1. Hi I totally get that line "Wait don't eat that yet!" ha ha - and your honest admitting that you do write up posts beforehand at times :) I am just starting out blogging gluten free - I had a personal blog that was starting to be filled more and more with facts and posts about being a celiac and having to be gluten free - so I was inspired by yours and others blogs so I started up one just dedicated to that. I have just started up and would love to have more readers to "spur" on my motivation. :)

  2. Hi Sherri,

    Thats great that you are blogger. We just met up with a few Celiac's in Edmonton and talked briefly about the need for more gluten free bloggers in Edmonton. I hope you do keep it up.
