THE MARIE CLAIRE SCANDAL: And the overwhelming show of support + open discussion it prompted in the blog community. Did you know the editor of MC called me and asked me to write a ‘positive’ article about food blogging in the magazine?

Plus, I didn’t want to be a huge sell out. Looking back, I have to say the MC article was probably the biggest “teaching moment” of my entire life.
