We’ve done it. We’ve taken that all-important first step into the dizzyingly prolific world of social media and made our first ever Tweet. Whilst we would have liked our first Tweet to be profound and meaningful (as all good firsts should be), in reality it was more of an icebreaker, a taste-tester, an initiation into the weird and wonderful world that is social networking. So please join us in our social media crusade and become one of our followers (Twitter), or friends (Facebook) or both. And please be patient as we learn to share our message in 140 characters!
Whilst we are on the topic of sharing messages we also wanted to say thank you to everyone that has supported and continues to support us in making Our Kitchen what it is. We have been live almost three months now and are constantly blown away by the support and kindness of our readers and by the steady increase in daily traffic to our site which suggests to us that there are lots of you out there that really like Our Kitchen! We have found ourselves on websites such as Notcot, on Foodgawker and Tastespotting. We featured as the website of the week in The Listener magazine and we even found ourselves on a German TV show called Ehrensenf! And if that’s not enough, next month we feature on an incredible blog (keep reading to find out which one!), with a daily readership base of 45,000 people. This is particularly exciting for us as it means we feature alongside photographers and bloggers who we look up to and who are hugely influential and inspirational to us. People such a Ditte Isager who took the photos for Gordon Ramsays latest cookbook, and food bloggers such as Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks, Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites, and Keiko Oikawa of Nordljus. We just can’t contain our excitement!
In the mean time we are happy to continue to create, cook and photograph beautiful food and recipes and bring them to you right here in Our Kitchen.
