Behind the Apron Roundup

apron2


Have you ever visited a food blog, day after day, and stopped and wondered what the chef behind the magic looks like? I often wander through my Blogroll and wonder who's on the other side of the computer.

As food bloggers, we focus so much on the food that we often reveal nothing of ourselves to our readers. On any given street, I probably couldn't pick out more than 2 or 3 of the writers of the 100 or so food blogs I read on a regular basis.

That's where this "Behind The Apron" round-up comes in. Starting today, and ending January 31st, post a picture of yourself on your blog, revealing as much (tastefully, of course) or as little as you want. Introduce yourself, show us your family, do whatever you want.

Send a link to your post to 28cooks AT gmail DOT com, and I will round them all up, posting the final tally on February 4th. Please make sure you place a link to this post in your entry. You can also feel free to snag the handy button up at the top.

Have fun - show us who you are!

Oh my goodness you have read my mothers mind.. She has been trying to post a picture of me w/ my whole family for months now.. She has been telling me how much "those girls who always comment would just love to see me".. Okay.. This is just the kind of motivation I needed!
By the way.. happy blog anniversary! I have been just in awe of all of your beautiful food photography for a while now..
Happy new years

Melissa - great post! Can't wait to include that in the final wrap-up!

Button Boy - you got that right. But maybe you're just saying that because you made it....

MadeinAlaska - If your mother said it, then you have to participate in the roundup. =) And thanks for the anniversary well wishes!

Fiber, those eyes just keep following me... it's spooky. I'm glad I reconsidered the 28 cooks "under the apron" tattoo. Temporarily, anyway...

(Oh who am I kidding. It's awesome, of course.)

I think that's a great idea, 28! I've seen a few pictures of fellow bloggers and I think it's really nice to have a face to go with names. I like the anonymity that the web provides but now I'm thinking about posting my picture! :)

Vanessa said...
