The Best of the Week: Food Recipes – Blogging – Social Media – Health – Fitness

You know I like to surprise my readers with articles of different themes related of course to food, health and social media. In that way I enjoy breaking the routine and to spicy the blogging up (subscribe with a RSS reader or by email to be updated!)

I’ve planed several new sections to my blog and I’ll be publishing them in future posts as time goes by.
This brand new section was in my mind since long time ago but I’ve had often little time to implement it.
Now with a small push of Kristi of Kikolani and her Fetching Friday posts I’ve made it and adapted a foodie-version that I want to call it: the Best of the Week.
The same will be published (hope to do it regularly) near every weekend (in other words from Thursday to Saturday, the weekend depends of the country customs)

 The Best of the Week: Food Recipes - Blogging - Social Media - Health - Fitness

What type of content will be included and what type of criteria will I use to pick them?

The articles mentioned on this brand new section will come from the return-feedback I’ve from other bloggers in comments on this blog, from the interacting on my social networks as well as of my RSS reader subscriptions to other blogs.
I’ll be covering, principally areas that could be interesting for foodies and bloggers in general.
Having more than 500 subscriptions (and increasing!!) in my RSS readers, I know that it will be a little hard to find good content in all the cases.
This is where You enter! I know that I’ll be missing worth articles so, if you want, you can recommend them (only very few per week ;-), through my social sites.
So join me at twitter, facebook, stumbleupon, and join my blog on facebook.
I bet that you already know that interacting with other bloggers (in this case me!) is the best way to be noticed; anyway, I’m pretty sure that this isn’t new for you, eh?

Now straight to the Best of the Week articles published!
