Exciting times!

Remember this post?

Well for those of you who do not follow me on Twitter where I was excitedly tweeting about this yesterday, I heard back from Catherine Jheon (who actually commented on my letter/post) to let me know that Food Network Canada would love to have me blog for them on a freelance basis!

I am over the moon ecstatic!

My first posts will appear on the site sometime in April so I am off to start working away at them.  Thank you all for your support and I hope you will also enjoy my writing over at FoodNetworkCA online!  Stay tuned…

    Thanks so much everyone – I really appreciate your support and am very excited! This last year has been a bit of a whirlwind but landing a gig like this has made it all worthwhile! I look forward to sharing my Food Network Canada posts with you all as well as many more exciting food and travel posts here on ELTW!

  33. Jen Laceda March 12, 2010 at 09:35 #

    Congrats, Mardi! Do I see a career change in the future? LOL!!

  34. Mardi@eatlivetravelwrite March 12, 2010 at 09:36 #

    Hi Jen, Ah I don’t think so! I will be continuing to enjoy my boys’ cooking club next term and beyond – am excited to share my passion with my students!

  35. K a b l o o e y March 12, 2010 at 11:23 #

    That’s incredible! (Although I expected you to get it.) What does the job entail? Do you pitch stories to them or the reverse? Tell us all about it after the bubbly is finished. You have worked so hard and I can’t think of anyone who deserves this more. Does Amanda know? (She was our online blog class teacher…)

    • Mardi@eatlivetravelwrite March 13, 2010 at 18:33 #

      Thanks Carrie – I can’t believe it actually!!! I think we work together to come up with stories but I certainly have a whole bunch of travel related tales I can pitch to them straight away. First articles will appear in April. And of COURSE Amanda and Mike know – they taught me everything!!!

  36. Fuji Mama March 12, 2010 at 19:44 #

    I am seriously SO EXCITED for you! Just glad they think you’re as wonderful as we do. :)

  37. The Duo Dishes March 13, 2010 at 11:18 #

    Yay congrats again!

  38. Michele March 13, 2010 at 11:53 #

    Woo Hoo! You can do anything! You are my hero. You go girl!!!

  39. Heather March 14, 2010 at 10:00 #

    WOW!!! This is amazing, Mardi! Nice work! :)
