My Disclosure Policy

1. All my posts are written for myself first (with my followers in mind of course). If I make money from a post due to third party advertising such as Google or Foodbuzz, then so much the better.
2. If I write about a product, cookbook or restaurant, chances are that I received the product, cookbook or meal for FREE.
3. If I write a review about a product, cookbook or restaurant that was not FREE, I will disclose that in my post. I will always write about local establishments and businesses (non-chain) gratis- I support local businesses and hope you will too.
4. FREE product does not guarantee a positive review.
5. If you are interested in sending me a book or product to review, or want me to review a restaurant, please know that I make every effort to post reviews within 4 weeks of receiving a book, within 2 weeks of receiving a product, and within 1 week of dining at a restaurant.
6. I write for several websites and print publications in addition to my blog and my writing interests are strictly food or cooking-related, so please make sure that your book or product is food-related in some way.

Look Out World!

I have been serious about food-writing for over a year, but have never started a blog up until now. I'm not really sure why, except I guess that I've just been so busy writing for other people, I forgot to write for me. No deadlines, no assigned topics, just me and whatever I want to say. I find the idea of a blog both liberating and intimidating. In spite of the creative freedom it offers, the prospect of filling up all this blank space is freaking me out! Much like when I started the first chapter of my yet-to-be-completed cookbook, I am full of doubt. All that space! What if I have nothing to say? What if nobody reads it?

I relayed these feelings on Twitter the other day to a food writer and cookbook author I admire very much, Crescent Dragonwagon (yes, that IS her name...go ahead and Google it). She told me, "self-doubt is also part of the process. Have those feelings, don't deny 'em; but don't believe 'em, either". Thanks Crescent for your kind advice and the oh-so-gentle kick in the pants that I needed! of today, no more excuses....look out world here I come!
