Last week, I stopped by the pharmacy, and as I waited for the lady behind the counter to scan the barcode on my prescription, I commented on how warm and cozy she looked, wrapped up in a cute black-and-white sweater with a matching black scarf. She smiled and laughed, and we chatted about how our California weather turns from warm and sunny to almost frigid (by our standards, anyway!) in just a matter of days.
While her machine slowly processed my purchase, she politely inquired about how I was enjoying the holidays. When I shared that I had been baking non-stop, mainly because of my job, she asked what I did for a living.
I briefly explained about my blog and my Healthier Chocolate Treats cookbook, and she immediately pulled out a pen to write down the name of my website. Instead, I handed her my business card, and she exclaimed, “Oh my gosh! I’ve seen your recipes on Pinterest!”
My heart actually skipped a beat… I’ve never met a stranger who has heard of my blog, let alone already browsed around it! I practically floated around on Cloud Nine for the rest of the day, still in shock and disbelief about that little conversation in the pharmacy.
And it may sound slightly silly, but you helped make that possible!
Every time you visit my blog and look around at my recipes, every time you save them on Pinterest or Facebook, every time you share a link with your family and friends, every time you make a recipe and post pictures of those treats on Instagram…
Those small actions have added up and enabled me to turn Amy’s Healthy Baking into my full-time job. I’m incredibly grateful for what you’ve done for me!
