2010 Canadian Weblog Awards Exclusive Nominee Interview with Suzie Ridler of Suzie the Foodie
I left the world of blogging for three months last year and tried to write my foodie book and felt so lost and alone. I missed the blogging community, their feedback, support, and comfort and, yes, even the mean comments I get now and then. My blog had been about a sacred life and, well, my life just no longer felt sacred. I followed the energy and found that I wanted with all my heart to be in the kitchen and write my foodie adventures and hope that someone would care and, maybe, just maybe, pick up a wooden spoon and make something themselves. That is the power of the blogging world. Day after day, people come and see me, a woman with a disabling illness on the brink of insanity from pain and exhaustion, pick up my wooden spoon and try again. If I can do it, they must know they can do it, too.
