Grab Your Fork in mX

Observant Sydney commuters may have spotted this article on GrabYourFork in today's free afternoon newpaper mX.

The article is about the growning phenomenon of blogging, and I was embarrasingly excited when I was contacted last week by mX journalist, Emily Brown.

For those regular readers who are particularly interested, email me and I'll send you a scanned copy of the article. There are eight (count 'em, eight!) scintillating quotes from me.

To the mX readers who have taken the effort to punch in this website address: Welcome! Please feel free to browse GrabYourFork using the drop-down menus on your right.

Have a mosey around, check out the fridge and let me know if there's a fantastic restaurant you think I should visit.

    That's great news, Helen! I think your blog is one of the most read downunder and you always have such great posts. I'd love to read the article if you can email it!

    Hey Helen, congrats on the article...about blood time I say! I'd love a copy to read too :)

    Hope you're all packed and ready for NY!! (Actually, just bring an empty suitcase...surely you'll have time in between chowing down to do some shopping!)

    Awesoooome! YOUR BLOG IS IN PRIIINT! If anything in that article could be pertinent to my food blog essay, could you let me know? ;) (I've amassed so many articles about food blog popularity already actually...er, but it's a fun topic!)

    That is sooo darned cool! So exciting. Looks like your blog is practically on a billboard it looks so big and powerful in that pic:)
    I still have to focus and get you NYC eats. I'm so sad though my favorite restaurant in all of NY has closed :(

    I was giddy with exitement whilst reading the article.

    I know you do it for the love of food and all that stuff but boy isn't great when you get a little nod like this.

    One step closer to Good Living and the life of a food critic.

    Congrats, that's really exciting!

    As I said on your Flickr site - Congrats Helen! This is most wonderful for all your dedication and passion you show for food blogging. You should put up a few of your quotable quotes.

    Enjoy you NY trip! Dotn forget Gray Papaya's or Crif Dogs. Cafe Wha is also great for a night out - Wednesday nights are the best there! Try the buffalo wings :D

    Wow. Thanks everyone for all your comments! What a bonanza. It warms the cockles of my heart I tell ya... =)

    Hi Cin - Thanks. I don't know if mine is most read DownUnder. Is it? But thanks so much for your kind words. And I've emailed you the article as requested.

    Hi Chickpea - Aww shucks, it's bizarre but kinda exciting too. I've sent you the article.

    I'm almost packed. Been very organised this time. Usually I don't start until 9pm the night before! And yes, I intend to shop shop shop like there's no luggage limit at all... haha

    Hi Oslofoodie - I know what you mean. I get all mixed-up too. Hope you enjoyed the article.

    Hi Robyn - A food blog essay sounds like a great topic. Much more interesting than the ones I had to churn out in uni =) I've sent you the article too.

    Hi Mona - It's a freebie paper but hey, I'm not complaining.

    I've started compiling a hit list of NY eats to do. There's so many! I think I need to stay a year!

    Hi Pickles - Thanks!

    Hi 2-minute Noodle Cook - Thank you. It was a nice highlight to the end of my working week.

    Hi Nic - Thanks. Oh the joys of fleeting fame.

    Hi Nora - Thank you. It is nice to get a little limelight, but hey, it's all about you guys, and I'm much more appreciative of all your comments along the way! =)

    Hi Nicole - Thanks. Oh, I feel so giddy with all this attention!

    Hi Veruca Salt - Oh you're giddy too? Goody! lol

    Hehe, I'm waiting... but in the meantime, hey, let's eat!

    Hi Ben - Sad but true. And why is that Bros song stuck in my head?

    Hi Saffron - Heh! My quotes sound so pedestrian now that I read them. I was so sure I was much more philosophical and insightful than that! lol

    Yes I am definitely heading to NY with a big grin on my face.

    Hi Sue - Now that sounds perfect. Where do I sign?

    Hi foodcrazee - Aww thanks! There are so many blogs out there. I'm chuffed that I seem to have so many regulars!

    Hi Kirsten - Thanks. I always eat to please =)

    Hi Mama BoK - I've sent you a copy. Enjoy!

    Hi gadgetgirl - Blog rock star? I love it! I should get that made into a badge =)

    And thanks for posting your first ever comment. Keep 'em coming. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    Hi AG,

    What great, well deserved news. You've finally made the big time. Can I have your autograph...and a copy of the article? Please???


  • At 12/09/2005 12:43 am, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Helen, you are still yet to reveal your identity. that's unless you're on some sort of witness protection again. most blogs have descriptions of the author and if not a full picture. I'm beginning to wonder if it's the work of several people.

  • At 12/09/2005 12:44 am, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    oops I meant witness protection program.

  • At 12/10/2005 12:30 pm, Blogger Sam said…

    AG - this is great news I am glad you made your mark in the Ozzie press.
    You had already made your mark with all of us.


  • At 12/10/2005 3:59 pm, Blogger Helen (AugustusGloop) said…

    Hi Reid - Thanks. You should have a copy of the article already. Hope you liked it!

    Hi Anonymous - I assure you I'm not involved in any witness protection program. However i find it funny that you yourself have chosen to comment anonymously? =)

    Hi Sam - Aww thanks. Now if I only LA were just that little bit closer!
