Come Meet me at Press Publish in Phoenix!

12 Mar

Hi everyone, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at a one-day blogging conference, called Press Publish, which is hosted by the folks behind WordPress.com. This blog has been hosted on WordPress.com since day one, so I’m honored to be a part of their team for this event. I’ll be attending the Phoenix event, which is on April 18th – I haven’t been to Arizona in years, so I’m looking forward to spending some time in the Grand Canyon state!

The purpose of the conference is to allow bloggers to connect, learn new tips and tricks from the staff behind WordPress.com, and to hear from other bloggers regarding what they did to reach their audience. Specifically, my segment is titled, “How I Found My Voice”, and I’ll be talking about how I discovered (and honed) my niche in the world of food blogging. It should be a lot of fun!

Tickets are $150, but here’s the cool thing: I have a super secret discount code for you folks, for 40% off, using the code DOMESTIC40. Your ticket also comes with a free $99 WordPress.com premium upgrade if you use WordPress.com for your own blog, or for self-hosted WordPress blogs, a 1-year subscription to the VaultPress Backup Bundle. So let’s do the math: 40% off $150 is $90, plus a $99 value thrown in = I’m basically paying you $9 to come hang out with me.

Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out the Press Publish page for more info.

Please Vote for Me in the SAVEUR Best Food Blog Awards!

13 Apr

Folks, I basically flipped out when I found out that this tiny blog was chosen as a finalist for the Saveur 2013 Best Food Blog Awards, under the Special Diet category! SAVEUR is an incredible magazine and online resource, and one of my favorite places on the internet – so you can imagine my surprise when they gave a nod to little ol’ me! I’m speechless.

Okay, I’m not totally speechless, because I have a little more talking to do. I need your help. Although the Saveur editors whittled thousands of nominations down to us finalists, the winner is chosen by tallying votes, and it’s still anybody’s game: so please vote for me so I can win the whole thing!! I’m not joking when I refer to this blog as “tiny”, because I am tiny in comparison to some of my competitors, and every vote counts.

So please, rally the troops, grab your friends, and guilt-trip your families into voting for The Domestic Man on Saveur’s page. Please note that you have to register with Saveur.com first before voting. I realize that it’s an inconvenient extra step, but I really, really appreciate it. Voting ends at midnight, Friday, April 19th, so please hurry!

To vote, click here and then hover over one of the blog name and select “Register”, and fill out the form. Then return to the voting page and cast your vote.

Finally, I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone that reads this little nook of the web, and I hope you’ve enjoyed my recipes so far. I have a lot more to share, so stick around!
