Last year was SAVEUR’S first annual food blog awards, but last year at this time Quick Feet, Good Eats hadn’t yet been created. Heck, at this time last year, I wasn’t even thinking about starting a blog.
“Me have a blog? No one would read it!”
Quick Feet, Good Eats is now 9 months old and I am asking for all the support I can get from my readers to be nominated for SAVEUR’S 2011 Best Food Blog Awards.
Now, I’m not sure whether this past year has been the baby-boom of food blogs, or I’m just now noticing the thousands of them over the world wide web, but let me tell you, a lot of people like to talk about food. And I am not complaining!
Why Nominate Quick Feet Good Eats?
I started Quick Feet, Good Eats in July 2010. My initial intention for the blog was to document my food adventures, have a place to organize recipes, and talk about my fitness routines. For the most part, Quick Feet, Good Eats has remained a place to document these aspects of my life, in addition to the random rambling posts here and there.
Throughout the year though, my blog has been more than just a speck in the infinite world of web. This blog has been my inspiration. It’s where I came to realize my true passion. Some people live for music, some people are fashionistas, some people like to study the way other people think. I have found a passion for food.
I should be 800 lbs.
I have been blessed with a good life (and metabolism!) Sometimes, I may not think so, and life can be difficult, but that’s how it is for all of us, right? I have been blessed with a supportive family, group of friends and roommates, and a boyfriend I would give the world for. Each and every person in my life has given me the support I need and has, at times, been my backbone.
Okay, okay, I’ll stop with the sentimental talk! What I’m trying to get at is that yes, I am surrounded by very encouraging people, but this blog would not be worthwhile if it weren’t for my readers. “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”
I may not have hundreds of follows who check back daily to see what I’ve posted next. That would be nice! But what I have now, at this time in my life, is a growing passion for food, fitness, the web, and sharing, and more than anything support.
I cannot give you a direct reason why you should nominate my blog for SAVEUR’S award, you must be the determiner of that. What I can tell you is that winning (#winning) an award such as this one would give me a huge opportunity to share my passion with those who may not know Quick Feet, Good Eats. It would help me network and learn from others and perhaps go to blogging conferences I might otherwise not attend. Your nomination and vote are greatly appreciated and I cannot thank you all enough for reading! (Nominations close April 22, 2011)
