There are a few things I want to tell you about:
1. You may have noticed I set up "The Spice Shop" kitchen boutique on A Spicy Perspective. This is an Amazon online store with must-have kitchen items. Pulling no punches here...this IS a money-making scheme. I'm hoping that one day--when MILLIONS of readers are following my blog--the big bucks will be rolling in through my store! All jokes aside, I have picked out quite a few useful and fun items that I personally have and recommend...and a few extras I'd LIKE to have. (Santa, if you're reading this, it's the Vitamix blender!!! I've been good!) If you are in the market for new cookbooks, utensils and gadgets, sassy aprons, or hard-to-find ingredients--check out the shop! Amazon makes it really easy to get the best price and I happen to get a little somthin' too!
2. I have also added a "print friendly" button at the bottom of each post to make recipe following easier. I selected a print function that allows you to delete sections, hoping this would allow individuals to be able to print exactly what they want...whole post, recipe only, pictures, no pictures...you choose. If sizing is an issue, it also gives you the option of emailing to yourself, so you get manipulate it as much as you want!
3. Bloggers love, luv, LOVE comments. Thanks for all the wonderful feedback you have given. It is truly encouraging and helpful to here your thoughts! Keep 'em coming!
4. If you are enjoying A Spicy Perspective, here are a few ways you can help me spread the word: A- You can click on the "SHARE" button at the top of the sidebar to send my post straight to your facebook page, twitter, email addresses or numerous other places. B- Those of you receiving ASP emails could forward your email on to your friends. Hopfully they will find it more useful and better reading than a lot of the junk people generally forward! I appreciate all the help I can get!
And for thank you's...
Thank you for reading my blog. It makes me happy to write it, and even happier to think someone might actually like it and appreciate my food!
Thank you for signing up as fans, followers, and feed readers. I feel like I've been handed a megaphone!
Thank you to all of you...you know who you are...who have helped me as I blundered through the building of this blog. Several generous friends have created, advised, and correct computer errors on my behalf. Love you all!
And finally thank you to those of you who have supported my efforts by sending goodies my way! I am always happy to receive coupons and presents in the mail. I didn't know that was part of the blogging experience--but I like it!
