I took the "You know you’re a food blogger if…" survey and...

This is Irvin Lin. Even though we haven't known each other for very long (2 years), or very well (we've seen each other 2 times at the 2011 and 2012 Food Blogger Bakesales) I'm a fan of his blog "Eat the Love" because his posts (here), and sometimes his photos (here scroll to the bottom), make me LOL. His writing style is self deprecating, ridiculously witty and fun.

Recently, we managed to avoid seeing each other for two whole days while up in Seattle at the BlogHerFood 2012 conference. Neither of us are quite sure how we accomplished this feat since we'd even tweeted we'd keep an eye out for each other to say hi. We were like two ships that passed in Puget Sound.

After the conference Irvin wrote a post titled  "You know you’re a food blogger if…" that cracked me up! It's a list of 40 observations that came to him while in Seattle surrounded by other food bloggers.

Though I'm not a niche food blogger, and more often than not refer to myself as a lifestyle blogger, I think I may be both. I do blog an awful lot about eating, cooking, baking and shopping for food, desserts and ingredients. I think my answers to Irvin's 40 questions would qualify me as a food blogger. If I'm not there yet I'm definitely nearing the tipping point. There were:

25 x Yes
2 x Kind of
2 x Almost there
5 x Not yet
5 x No
1 x I wish I'd thought of this :)
