It’s been two years+ since I joined Twitter and in that time I’ve found it to be an extremely valuable way to meet and connect with foodbloggers (local, regional, and international) as well as readers. These connections have grown and developed in ways that I would never have imagined! One thing that I really enjoy as well is hearing from readers. Your questions and feedback continually inspire me, and it’s great to put faces to names and get a sense of who is really on the other side of the screen, reading these words.
Over the past weeks I have rolled out some new social media initiatives that I hope that you will enjoy as much as I am!
Every Thursday from 1p.m. – 2p.m. (local time, GMT – 4) I’ll be on Twitter taking your questions and requests, and just chatting about all things related to local/regional cuisine.

This very stylish tool aggregates the most popular links shared by myself and those I ‘follow’ on a daily basis. It’s a great way to discover new sites and recipes. I’m still tweeking it to raise the level of local/regional content but the feedback so far has been great! Click here to read it 🙂
Several months ago I helped to create the #Caribbeancooks Twitter channel to enable cooks in, and from, the diaspora to share their food-related thoughts, questions, and pics of their creations. This daily online publication helps to feature those offerings and shines the light around 🙂 Click here to read it 🙂
I’m still getting the swing of these new additions but I’m itching to interact with y’all in new ways! Also, feel free to use the various social media buttons that I’ve added to each post to ‘tweet’ or ‘like’ those articles and recipes that have caught your eye 🙂
