I’ll tell you one thing, it is rewarding to get national recognition and acknowledgement for doing something you love….
Getting recognition on an international level is another thing. It’s phenomenal! Few weeks ago I received an email from a writer from Maniera Magazine, a lifestyle magazine in the UK. She was fascinated about South African food and how it is represented on this blog. Well, before receiving that email I’ve never heard of Maniera magazine so I did what I do best, I googled it and went through some of their past issues to see what they are about and get a feel of the magazine. I ended up reading on their CEO, Thelma Lay. It is interesting how she got into magazine editing and I was really inspired.
I’m featured as a culinary contributor in this month’s issue! You should see the grin on my face! It’s from ear to ear! They asked for three recipes and wait for this, including a pap recipe! In addition to the Pap recipe, I gave them the Chakalaka Chicken and Blueberry Township Scones recipes.
After all of that, they were so sweet and gave me a thank you gift, free 3 months subscriptions to share with my friends and family. My friends and family are ecstatic! But you know what, a blogger is nothing without the readers. So, I’m also giving away FIVE 3 month’s subscriptions to my readers!
Just like the post on my facebook page and from there I’ll put names in a hat and choose 5 people to get a free subscription. LEGGO!
