The Food Blog Diary









NEWSFLASH!

Well, it may be for some of you.

Frustrated with foodie event listings that have been abandoned and left to fester with a plethora of spam, I decided to set up one myself. I know, you may be thinking "but Jac, you have a full-time job, a new baby, a house to run and a blog to write. Are you mad?". Well, you could be right, but such was my annoyance.

So without any further ado, I would like to introduce you to The Food Blog Diary. Home to the latest foodie challenges, giveaways and competitions. Spam free!

When you visit you will notice I have also started a what's on guide for food and drink events, such as fairs, shows and festivals and a handy at a glance list with links, if you are in a hurry. Come on by a few times a month, as the page is updated regularly. I hope you leave feeling inspired.

Anyone feeling particularly kind may want to give the diary a small mention on their blog and you may want to bookmark the page so you can keep up with the latest events. If you would like an event added, email me at tinnedtomatoes@googlemail.com.

  12. What a star - great idea. But how do you manage to juggle all these things? I've made a note to give this a mention when we get our challenge up and running! Actually putting it in the sidebar as GGG has done sounds like a good idea.

  13. Can't wait for your new challenge Choclette, it's going to be great. I am managing fine just now, but it will probably be more tricky once I am back at work, although I am sure I will be in the swing of it by then :)

  14. are you made? of course, mad about food :o)
    will send you some more links as I come across them. There's a great local food showcase that takes place in the Forest of Dean in the Autumn (doubt there'll be a web link though it's so rural!)

    Oh, The Food Blog Diary, I had to think for a minute there, though you were talking about rhubarb until I read the rest of the sentence. Hehe :D

  20. Oh boy, I am going doolally! I thought I was leaving a comment on my rhubarb and custard cake post. Must have scrolled down further than I thought. Makes more sense now :)

I love reading comments, so thank you for taking the time to leave one. Unfortunately, I'm bombarded with spam, so I've turned on comment moderation. I'll publish your comments as soon as I can and respond to them. Don't panic, they will disappear when you hit publish. Jac x
