When I joined Foodbuzz I was totally unaware of what they were about. I guess I should have read the "About Us" page, but reading the instructions has never been my strong point!

When the first gift arrived I was floored! It was the most beautiful shopping tote bag, complete with a Homemade Heaven badge! All for little old me! I love free stuff and when it's something you can use daily - that's huge.

The second gift almost made me cry. Personalized Homemade Heaven business cards! I hand them to people inviting them to visit my blog.

I then registered for the challenge to blog 5 times a week for 3 weeks. At first this sounded daunting, because at the time I was only managing to blog twice maybe thrice a week at best. I completed the task and they actually gave me $50 for my efforts. Since then I have managed to increase the number of posts per week, and so increase the traffic to my blog.

Yesterday I received another gift - these people must really love me! It is a beautiful white apron - perfect for elegant entertaining and a much needed spatula, the old one was over due for retirement.
Here I am with my new apron and spatula!

I would encourage you to visit there site and sign up. Not for the gifts, but it is a great way to see what the thousands of other foodies around the world are up to! As they say :
"our online community is a one-stop shop for food lovers to find exactly what they are searching for without having to navigate around multiple sites or mull through irrelevant results from general search engine queries".

Thank you to Foodbuzz - you have changed my blogging experience.

Wow, that's great! I was thinking about getting involved in their marketing program, I didn't realize they give you free stuff. Very cool! Congrats on hitting your ideal weight.

You can't beat gifts in the mail!

Gina - I didn't know either, until the stuff started arriving! And I don't live in the States, so it is even more amazing that they would pay the extra postage- for me!

Recipe Girl - It's actually a great way to connect with other blogs - there are so many out there.

Maryann - It doesn't matter what it is - if it free, I love it!

Hi, I'm a member too - but I also don't seem to find the time between the mountains of research that simply seems to get more and more, cooking, the work and preparation for my own site and the endless writing.

I feel a bit snowed under today which is why I'm here - I breathe on your site. Thanks so much.

That's great ! I've finally taken the plunge and reformatted my blog to accommodate their logo, so soon I'll be joining you :)

Jeremiah 17: 7-8

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. He will be like a tree planted by the water."

It is not your business to succeed, but to do what is right : when you have done so, the rest lies with God.
C.S. Lewis
