Pay It Forward

 Kevin from Closet Cooking www.closetcooking.blogspot.com was participating in a food blogging event called Pay it Forward. This event provided a wonderful opportunity for fellow food bloggers to be randomly selected to receive a food package from the blog event host containing food goodies.

Food bloggers are from all over the world, and different regions of the United States and Canada. This was such a fun way to discover and experience new foods.

In December, I left a comment on Kevin's blog. To my surprise, I was a lucky recipient. I was excited! A short time later, I received a food box from Kevin that contained a variety of Canadian specialities.



 Now, it's my turn to recipricate. If you are interested in participating, the rules are simple.  Leave a comment on this post.  I will randomly select 3 comments from this post on January 20, 2010.  The commenters agree, if they are selected, that they will host Pay it Forward and pass along the opportunity to three other food bloggers to enjoy within one year. Pin It
