Food Blog Events & Round-ups

Participating in food blog events is real fun. But the problem comes when you want to refer to the round-ups and unfortunately you forgot to bookmark them. I am one among those people who always forget to bookmark the page and end-up wasting good amount of time searching for those round-ups.

That’s why I decided to make a list of food blog events which I often participate. I know how time consuming it is to host an event and then post the round-up. This is my way of saying Thank you to all those wonderful blogger friends, who spent hours together to put up the round-up. This page is listed on top horizontal bar, titled “Blog Events”, for future reference. I am sure its going to help most of us to refer back to the event round-ups. If you have hosted any particular food blog events and want to be included in this page, please drop me a line at comment section with Your Name, Event Name, Event Theme(s) and the Perm Link(s) of the round-up. I will be updating list of round-ups once in a month. So please bear with me!
