Hello! I'm Allie!

I'm part of The Reintroduce Myself blogfest, so today I'm posting a short blog about me and my little corner of the world.

At Fresh Pot (of TEA, people) I like to feature online creativity. I've had jewelry-makers, photographers, and artists on, showcasing their work and inspirations. Of course, I also invite writers on  and review books, both traditionally published and Indie.

I intersperse all the creative deliciousness of my guests with blogs about being a mom (like the fact that my kid nearly missed the bus this morning because she couldn't decide which M&M Lipsmacker to use). 

I've been known to post a recipe or two, like this one for my uncles famous carrot soup. Plus, if you have been looking for how to make Fuller's Walnut Cake, search no further. I've got your back.

Today I'm also celebrating 100,000 hits, so grab a beverage and join the party! 

I'm delighted to be in the blogfest with some of my favorite bloggers, including Krista McLaughlin, Hart Johnson, and Stephen Swartz. There are loads of other cool-looking blogs at the Linky Links, found at the bottom of this page. Best believe I'll be checking them out. After all, how can I resist a blog called One Magic Bean Buyer?

Hello to the browsers and new readers!

And I love your blog, Johanna!

Mia Hayson said...

Congrats on the hits!

I am constantly getting caught up in a similar decision re lipstuff. Flavour will always lead to difficult decisions, I find!

Nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you! Thanks for the carrot soup recipe. We're having a cold snap here in California, well, cold for us, and carrot soup is just what I need.

Hart Johnson said...

Allie? Really? How did I not know this? Congrats on 100,000 hits! I keep wondering at what point you are allowed to mention blog hit number to agents...

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Lipsmacker is important in the morning.

Krista McLaughlin said...

Awww, thanks!

Congrats on 100,000 hits - that's awesome! :) You totally deserve it!

Hello! Found you through the Blogfest (though I'm a day late here >_<)

I absolutely love the concept of your blog (and am already feeling a kinship to you daughter - those are hard choices!)

Glad to have found you and very nice to meet you!
