Have you heard?
The Foodbuzz Awards are coming. They will be an exciting part of the first Foodbuzz Blogger Festival in November. It’s going to be great fun and I can’t wait to be there! So look for me and say hello.
The Foodbuzz Blog Awards were created to recognize outstanding talent, creativity and hard work in the food blog community. The nominations and winners will be determined by readers like you. So If you love to read food blogs, show that love and make some nominations. There must be some quietly boastful food blogger out there you want to nominate (hint, hint).
I am unsure if you need to be a Foodbuzz member or not, but it’s free to join and if you are reading this blog you should be a member anyway, because you will love it there. Become a member today! Then come back to SippitySup and click here to start nominating! I will be making dozens of nominations myself, as I love ALL Food Blogs!
