The personal stories and adventures of a nerdy food lover.

New kid in town

There is something about reading a blogger’s first post that makes me really happy. I think it’s because every time I read that first post, I remember the wonderful feelings I had about sharing what’s in my head (and kitchen) with the WordPress community (and beyond). It was no longer about me having a passion that only I knew about; it was about reaching out and sharing my passion with others, who in turn, shared their passion with me. It’s always a bit difficult to break into a new group when you don’t know anyone, and don’t have anyone to introduce you so I thought I would take the time to introduce to you all, my friend Melinda who is the owner of the blog Bookabye Baby. Melinda and I have been friends ever since high school, and we share A LOT of the same interests including a love of reading books, which is the focus of Melinda’s blog. So, if you have a passion for reading and books too, please welcome Melinda to the WordPress community and check out her blog 🙂

  1. That is such a lovely thing to do for a friend. I’m just off to visit her blog!

  2. Thanks for the recommendation. I’m now following http://bookabyebaby.wordpress.com/

  3. Thanks so much for the plug babe! You know I probably wouldn’t have gotten off my butt and done it if it weren’t for you. It’s nice to enjoy blogging again! Thank you for making me feel so welcome 🙂

  4. What a great idea! Wish I had a blogger friend that had done that for me in January 😉 I remember the nerves when I published that first post but back then I really only wanted to keep track of my cooking and practice writing…now it’s a different story!
    I shall check out her blog!

    • Thank you for checking out Melinda’s blog. Everyone in the WP community are so lovely that I know people would make Melinda feel welcome if I just put the word out there.

  5. I have made a few friends through blogging but I don’t think I have any close friends “from before” that now blog. That would be nice. We could chat in real life about blogging.

    • It is pretty cool and nice to chat about bloggy stuff when we catch up. Melinda was one of my inspirations for blogging because she started blogging before I did (on another platform), so it was nice to be able to ask questions about how blogging worked because I had absolutely no idea when I first started.
