Fringe Benefits of Being a Food Blogger

I arrived home today to find a package sitting in the front entrance. I thought it was weird to be getting a gift since my birthday is 6 months again and amazingly I haven’t started to see Christmas decorations popping up. I wondered what it could be.

A while back I had signed up for Food Buzz’s tastemaker program. I totally forgot that I requested samples of bread as one of their most recent offerings. To my surprise I was given two loaves, one whole wheat and the other 12 grain.

One of the benefits of immersing yourself in a community is that your opinion is valued. The food blogger community is no different than any other. This will make a perfect addition to my lunch tomorrow and the days ahead as I do my duty of tasting as compensation for the free samples. Not too shabby I must say.
