As time goes on, there will be other metaphorical Easter eggs as part of a tribute of sorts to 6birds, I guess. The site was such a huge part of my life for so long that leaving it behind and not looking back feels so wrong and dirty. My link love series is one of these, for example. “Lizard Finds” felt wrong because it turns out I’m terrified of lizards. Saturday Six is more personal and is a way of allowing 6birds to live on. It also limits me to six major link points, which, let’s face it: is what I could use sometimes (re: a limit).
I created a survey and would love for you to fill it out! Everything is optional, and I know it’s a little flawed (I’ve not been posting about food much lately), but whatevs. It’s mostly to satisfy my curiosity and all that jazz and collect Qs for a Q&A post. You can also just tweet me @gotjane or email me your questions for the Q&A if you’d like. ?
August 2014: A letter to the editors of The Washington Post asking where the empathy is for autistic children is published, written by a parent of both an autistic adult and an autistic child.
“When your reaction to this type of abuse is to defend abusers and not victims, something is wrong with you.”
I’m a regular blogger for Choose to Cook, an upcoming food magazine. My latest post talks about my allergy testing process, and I’m noticing there are autistic themes in my posts thus far, so if you like reading my posts on autism, you might like some of my posts on C2C as well.
Last year, I wanted to signup for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, but other things happened and caused me to miss the signup date—plus, I was super nervous about the idea of joining and intimidated by a lot of the other bloggers who’d participated since I’d first learned about it in 2013. It’s an annual event and helps raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
The Gluten-Free and Allergen-Friendly Expo (GFAF Expo) is coming to Dallas in September this year. ? I’m always most excited for this one, because there is such a variety of vendors. With this being my third year in a row, I also have come to know a lot of the vendor reps that go—like the Aussies from Freedom Foods, for example—and enjoy hearing the stories behind their new products. It gives a bit of a homey feeling. ❤ I’m also going as a press person again this year, so I have ticket discounts: ADVANCE will get you 20 percent off. Tickets sold via Eventbrite (affiliate link).
What cool stuffs have you found lately? Have you ever heard of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap?
