    Blogging has sure come a long way since those early days Caroline.

    You actually got into an early version of this article, Barbara! Had to cut the word count down but you still got a mention in the presentation I made when launching the Irish Food Bloggers Association. It might have been a while ago but I still remember the friendliness that you extended to me when I was just starting out. I hope that you’re keeping well.

  3. Great article, I love reading about bloggers I know and ones I haven’t come across yet. Have you come across the cookalong each month organised by Sarah of the Cake in the country blog?

    Lovely article Caroline, thanks for the cookalongs mention 🙂

  5. Great post! I love the blogging community and although I haven’t met many fellow bloggers, I feel like they are my friends and I truly care about what is going on in their lives. I would like to form a similar organization in my part of the world. I like the idea of having cook-alongs and workshops.

    @Lorna I certainly have! If you click on any word the the phrase “themed monthly cook-alongs” above you’ll see a few of the things that I’ve cooked for those events.

    @Sarah thanks for the compliment! You know I think that the cookalongs are just brilliant. Looking forward to the next one…

    @Lisa It’s not so difficult to set up but there’s a bit of work involved to keep it going! Where are you based? Are there any bloggers based around you? Maybe you should put a shout-out about meeting up on Twitter and you never know what might happen.

  7. Thanks again for the mention here, so well written and lovely to be in such great company. Also, I love being proud member of the IFBA!! Imen xx
