Celebrating Canada and all the awesome Canadian blogs/bloggers.

Join us!

I am super excited to be a part of this for the very first time. It sounds like a lot of fun and I loved to see more talented blogs. It is time for me to see more interesting blog topics and discover new friends. I have learned so much and seen such unique talent.I am excited for the new adventure.

For my adventure to really begin I thought I share a little bit about myself  to my new viewers.I'll try to keep it short and sweet ,don't you worry. I don't want to bore you to quickly, right? :P

How to begin ummm? Maybe a view on what I do here and share some of my favorite foodie photos!

Don't those look scrumptious. Sorry If I just made you hungry. Everyone says that to me lol.

For a more indepth info about me. Keep reading...

I have been blogging since January 2010. But that's not that exciting, I don't think? lol. 

I do come from wonderful British Columbia living in a small town on beautiful Vancouver Island!. Trust me I'm not bragging about it, but it is warm here :). 

I am 20 years old and I can go by Berendina my full name or Dini. I love baking and I have a wonderful boyfriend for about 3 years now.My good friends are very supportive and the blogging world as been so good to me.

My blog mostly focuses on my passion for baking and pastry arts;however recently I have been doing some of my own freebie product reviews and coupon sharing. Its been a lot of fun to do something new away from the regular.

Well here's the good stuff to why I got into this blogging mess lol. 

I guess it was other bloggers and websites that really got me thinking about joining this world.  I thought I could do that and share my passion in my own way. I said to myself I can write alright and I know how to bake. So lets mesh those two together and see how that takes flight. It must of worked because I am still here. 

It wasn't all me though because I do have to give a big thank you to my boyfriend Dave and my good friend Krysta for being the two people that really pushed me to do it and supported the idea.  Krysta is actually the person thats the creator of all my cartoon doodles featured on  here and she has a blog of her own with all her drawings.I am happy I listened to their advice and went for it. 

Now I have a place to express my creativity easily and I can keep a record of my growth in writing,photography and baking.I can now call myself a foodie blogger, which I would of had no idea what that title really meant back in 2009. I have learn a lot of new things from blogging and from bloggers.This event is about seeing and learning about talented canadian blogs, but it is also about inspiring others.

I want this blog to inspire someone to try something new and challenge themselves. You dont have to be a professional by any means to do what your passionate about. I am not a professional in the topics I talk about. I just learn from my experiences and fix my mistakes in the future. 

So my fellow Canadian bloggers I guess this went longer then I thought lol. Well become a part of the blog hop and If your interested check out my most recent posts :). Lets get this party started from June 24th-July 1st. Make it the best! 

This is such an awesome event and I am proud to be a part of it.
