Seeking CookieCon 2017 Correspondents

Hey, everyone. Like last year, I'm seeking one or two people to serve as CookieCon 2017 correspondents - meaning I'm looking for folks who would be interested in reporting on their experiences at CookieCon (while at CookieCon) to those back at home. The reporting could be in the form of photo posts (like these from last year's event ) or blog posts (like those here by last year's correspondents: @BAKRGAL aka Barb Florin, @JenniBakes4U, and @Sugar Cookie Momma, Inc.).Read More...

I guarantee you'll fall head over heels as soon as you see them! And I do mean "sets", plural! We're super fortunate to have not one, but two site contributions for February, which will be taking turns in the spotlight.Read More...

But this approach requests that I get more commonly known to more people here in Germany. The first option to reach that goal would be a blog, but after spending several hours researching this topic I am now sure that I am neither skilled...Read More...
