I am so excited to announce the 1st Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by myself and Julie of The Little Kitchen.
The premise is this: sign up. Receive the addresses of three other food bloggers. Send each of them one dozen delicious homemade cookies. Receive three different boxes of scrumptious cookies from other bloggers. Eat them all yourself (or, you know, share. If you want. No judgement either way.) Post your cookie recipe on your blog. See everyone else’s cookie recipes. Salivate. Get lots of great ideas for next years’ cookie swap. Rinse and repeat.
Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Want to join in the fun?
Sign ups are now CLOSED. If you missed out this year but are interested in participating in the future, please sign up here to receive notification when next year’s swap begins!
Sign ups are open through Tuesday, November 15th. Matches will be emailed to you on Monday the 21st, and we ask that you please get your cookies in the mail no later than December 5th. Blog posts with your cookie recipes should be written and ready for publication on December 12th. Julie and I will be posting a full round-up of all the participating bloggers and their cookie recipes shortly thereafter. Please note these deadlines and make sure you are able to meet them before signing up. We have no tolerance for flakes or no-shows in this swap.
Currently this swap is open to US and Canadian food bloggers, but we are willing to open it up to bloggers in other countries, as long as you can convince at least 4 bloggers from that country to sign up. Email us if you’d like to add yours. We will do our best to match folks with others in the same country to keep shipping costs reasonable.
