  5. Hi Jacqueline

    I'm sure you get messages like this all the time. I have been following your blog on bloglovin' for about a year now and find it a massive inspiration for my cooking. I have been thinking for a while about starting my own baking blog, to encourage me to bake more and push myself to be better. I have just started the blog and was wondering if you would check it out, follow me, comment or even (now I know I'm asking too much) mention me?

    I'd really appreciate any help to get my blog up and running.

    The address is www.eatsleepbakerepeat.wordpress.com.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this message
