A couple of months ago I was talking to a great blogging friend of mine Greg (visit his wonderful wife’s food blog!) and he mentioned having a great conversation with Marly who runs the Chopped Conference and Podcast. A little while later I heard form Marly who wanted to connect and have me as a guest on her podcast. Cue total and utter fear.
I know you can’t blog expecting success without having people who visit your blog and read your written words, but suddenly the thought of people listening to me talk about blogging terrified me.
For over a year now this blogging ride has been a wild one filled with amazing memories and even more amazing blogging friendships. We’ve bonded over trying to figure out the strategies behind a successful blog and talking about blogging has become a sort of second nature.
Maybe its the idea that it is being recorded to last FOREVER… haha. Or maybe I’m just microphone shy. Either way be gentle, I was super nervous and excited at the same time to be a guest on the Chopped Podcast and discuss how Dinner, then Dessert has grown in its first year to over 500,000 monthly views (currently at around 600,000). I also may have gone on a little too long about my love for Cap’n Crunch. ?
Ok, I’m done rambling now, if you want to listen to the podcast you can listen here:
Lastly, I wanted to reveal a secret project that I’ve been working since last fall!
