If you've been out and about on the web these past few weeks, you may have noticed a significant number of posts with this very same title. Indeed, Foodbuzz is hosting a contest to find The Next Food Blog Star. Its called Project Food Blog and, like everyone else and their brother, I've entered it.
For the first challenge, I'm supposed to tell the world what defines me as a food blogger and why I should be the next food blog star. Certainly, I could have gone the expected route and written an expressive essay extolling my virtues both in the kitchen and behind the keyboard ... but that's not really my style. Instead I've taken the challenge to wax poetic literally. Very literally.
I've written you a poem, Diva-style. Its my belief that the judges should get to know both the content and the writer behind the contestant - and in my case they'll need to work at it a bit. The hot links tell the story of who I am, both as a person and a blogger. To read me is to know me - the rest is just icing on the cake.
Diva the Food Blogger: Big Ass, Even Bigger Personality
I've made you laugh,
I've made you cry;
I've confessed to killing my pot pie
I can make you drool
or make you think,
I can mix you up one bad ass drink
and not too serious;
I bake like a pro but I'm not imperious
In short and in summary,
to put it point-blank,
I'll be needing your votes to climb in the rank
I've got what it takes to advance quite far,
I believe I can be The Next Food Blog Star!
In the days and weeks to come, I'll be asking for you to vote for me. Details are yet to emerge but with nearly 2,000 entries, I'm going to need all the help I can get! (And, if need be, I'll ply you with appetizers and drinks.)
Good luck to all and enjoy the weekend. Cheers!
