I am thrilled that August marks the one year anniversary of Miami Dish! I’m proud of how much the blog has grown. I am delighted when local businesses tell me that customers heard about them on Miami Dish.
The best part of creating this is feeling like there is a real and growing community of people in South Florida who value the same things that are important at Miami Dish: good food, good stories, and good conversation. I’m so excited for what’s to come! I hope that community continues to thrive.
So now it’s time to thank my readers. This coming week you can find several contests on the blog as part of a Miami Dish anniversary celebration. I thank all of the local businesses, as well as the FoodBuzz folks, for helping me provide you with these prizes.
The winner of this first contest gets:
· A FoodBuzz farmers’ market bag, made of organic cotton and complete with Miami Dish button, which you can remove and place wherever you like.
· A lovely two ounce tin of hibiscus tea from Theine teahouse in Coral Gables. This is my favorite summer iced tea. You can reuse the tin for other loose teas or spices.
· A gift certificate from Seeley’s Gourmet Garden for three of their numerous hummus flavors, including kalamata olive, chipotle, red pepper basil, lemon dill, and cilantro jalapeno. These creamy hummuses are made without preservatives and with real ingredients you can recognize. Some of the places where you can find Seeley’s Gourmet Garden are the Upper Eastside Farmers’ Market or By Their Fruit, 40 A West McNab Road, Pompano Beach. You can contact them at 954-786-9695 for more info about their products and where they are sold.
So, like I said, I feel like I have a community of readers. Many of you leave comments, but I’d like to hear from more of you.
For this contest, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me who you are, where you live and why you read Miami Dish . This is your chance to introduce yourself!
All you have to do is give me the info in bold above to be entered in the contest. However, if you wish, I would also love to know your favorite thing about Miami Dish. What do you wish you saw more of here?
The contest will run until 11:00 pm on August 27, 2008. I will announce the winner on Thursday, August 28. The winner will be randomly picked from the comments. Please remember to include your email in the comment field or to check back next week so that you can learn whether you won! Good luck and thank you!
