My Date Loaf
Julie's Chocolate Crunch
Despite the rain we weren't deterred from our get together in Burleigh, where I met 3 great food writers from southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales: Julie from Gourmet Getaways, Maureen from Orgasmic Chef and Marj from Good Food Gold Coast. Julie combines her travels and love of food into inspiring posts, Maureen is on a never ending quest to find food that is better than sex and Marj reviews local Gold Coast restaurants (so we had plenty of places to talk about!).
Now I know as the younger generation I'm supposed to know all there is to know about technology, but I have to tell you, boy did these ladies have a thing or two to teach me! There is so much to know about growing and developing a blog, maintaining your brand and enticing your audience. Not to mention all the technical aspects that go along with having a website and I was astonished at how much they knew and had to share with me.
We had a delightful morning talking blogs, food and the life of a writer over champagne and orange juice. I brought my favourite date loaf and Julie made a delightful chocolate crunch. The ladies were so helpful and I'm proud to say I walked away from the meeting with some wonderful new acquaintances, a head full of knowledge and an inspired heart, so I thank you ladies!
I'm looking forward to the next get together.
