The Next Food Blog Star

by Matt on September 16, 2010

Hello there! My name is Matt and I am crazy about cooking.

I am also crazy about a little thing called running.

running

Hence the name of my blog, “The Kitchen of a Runner”.

Before this post starts running away from me (pun intended), let’s get straight to the point.

There is this little thing going on called “”. And I think that is me. There are thousands of food bloggers out there, so what makes me so special? I will tell you…

I think I should be the “Next Food Blog Star” for a few different reasons:

  • My blog is MORE than just cooking. While doing their long run, most people think about what they are going to pig out on after (you know who you are…). I am one of those people who think about how they are going to make their pig out meal. I prefer something along the lines of pancakes…

  • I cook foods that will nourish your body and soul (ignore my bacon post from this morning). Sorry Paula Dean, but you do not need two sticks of butter for something to taste good. Healthy meals can be loaded with flavor, which I have demonstrated time and time again.

  • Just because I can cook healthy, nourishing meals, doesn’t mean that is the only thing I can cook. I have been known to make some meals that would make Bobby Flay let me cook on his grill.

Burgers are my second favorite food; nothing can top peanut butter. NOTHING!

  • And last but not least, I think I have the personality of a successful food blogger. While I am quite spontaneous and crazy at times, I am very serious about my running and the food that I produce (and consume). This blog means the world to me and each and every post has one goal: To share my love of fitness and cooking with anyone who will take the time to read it. That’s all I want.

I will let you guys decide for yourselves starting on Monday.

Yeah…you had me at that burger and grilled eggplant (is it eggplant …or maybe zucchini…?) – either way any grilled veggie is good ;)

I seen all the ads for this project – but gave up on even considering it when I realized people like YOU and Jenna (from ELR) would be competing :)

Matt I think your site is awesome! And I think you could have just shown a picture of that burger and not said anything at all. It speaks for itself :)

Your food pictures always make me wish I could hire you as my personal chef. (Although your pancake picture in this post looks like a hamburger with french fries on top of it. It took me a long time to figure out those were bananas). Good luck!
