I teased you yesterday and told you I had some exciting news, and sure as spaghetti squash, I have some.
News #1: And Then There was Cauliflower…
Thanks to your support and help in getting the word out (you guys went to bat for me and I thank you), I was a finalist in the contest at Yourhub.com.
To be more specific, we’re talking over 5,000 views in March alone, and over 6,000 to date.
I won $100 smackers (if it had been for pure page hits, I would have won all of the moolah, but it was a drawing for anyone over a certain amount. I know we would have taken the gold, baby!). I am going to pay it forward with the money to you guys (hey–you made it possible and I don’t forget my friends) in different ways, and will tell you how I plan to do this:
News #2. I’m Giving you Some Cool Stuff.
That’s right. I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to give you some goodness, but I’m going to try and make it a semi-regular event. You guys are worth it.
It won’t be weird things like Pamprin or all of the Splenda crap in my cupboards, either.
A giveaway is coming up this week, so stay tuned!
News #3. I would like to thank the academy…
Meet the new National Low-Carb Examiner of Examiner.com.
Sweeter than Stevia and without the bitter aftertaste, someone you know and maybe even (dare I say it) like (in a totally socially acceptable way) has made it into the national spotlight where I can continue to pay it forward to you, to myself and to others who haven’t yet heard the low-carb word.
A former editor of mine invited me to come aboard (now he’s all editor-y again), and after a background check to make sure I’m not creepy or eating people (seriously) (I try not to eat people. They’re too chewy), I am now on the bankroll (so to speak).
Does that rock my support socks? Oh yes. Oh yes it does.
I am not sure where that leaves this blog yet. Maybe I transfer everything there, or maybe I keep things serious over there and we keep cutting up here. It really depends on the amount of leeway they grant me over that direction.
One thing is for certain: these are going to be interesting times.
Now for an admission of guilt:
I’ve been off-plan for a week or two, sampling my way through foods I wasn’t even craving.
But, Dude, I am totally responsible and claim fully my choices: I blame it all on Aspartame and Splenda withdrawals. (Oh, what? And you never lick stuff and blame inanimate substances?)
My mind has finally revisited my ticked-off body and they had words (at least one tersely-worded manifesto). I’m back on plan where I will stay for the rest of the year. Might as well shoot for the moon and see how many chins I can drop by New Year’s Eve.
That said, are you in with me?
Onward we move into summer, with new recipes, way to keep cool, and healthier living; and with that, thanks for the bodaciously delicious support to the most intelligent, cheeky and tasty folks on the internet.
Let’s git r done.
