Special Bloggers Edition: We want to feature your blog!
Join us today on!
Freedible isn't just about supporting custom eaters - it's about supporting the bloggers and other parts of the eco-sphere that support custom eaters!

Check out all the things happening on freedible this week and watch our sneak preview of the Thanksgiving campaign we'll be announcing soon - all with a view toward spotlighting your blog!

We want to feature your blog.

Over the last several months, freedible has gone from an idea to a vibrant community.  A common "town hall square" of custom eating, where bloggers, food brands and hungry eaters are coming together to share information and make a difference.

Simply being in one place is the beginning of that difference.  But now that the eco-sphere is coming together is where the real opportunity begins.  Opportunity for blogs like yours.

Freedible is designed not just to help people with custom eating requirements but to support the food bloggers, the brands and the organizations that sustain them.  Already, innovative food brands are joining freedible, eager to connect with potential brand ambassadors that can help tell their story.  And organizations - from non-profits to allergy product businesses - have contacted us about bringing their products, services and information to our new community.

They, along with countless custom eaters, are reading the blog posts, making the recipes and searching our bloggers directory - and clicking through to the blogs behind them to read the whole story.

With today's newsletter, we decided to start a new format.  Each week in our Special Bloggers Edition of the FreedibleNews, we'll highlight the "current features" going on at freedible that bring us together and define us as a community - and that present opportunities for you to turn freedible's spotlight onto your blog. 

To kick this off, we are thrilled to make two special announcements.  First, that Jodi Stewart, moderator of our Gluten-Free Group, has agreed to take on a new role as the official moderator of our Bloggers group as well.  You may hear from her with suggestions for bringing more of your content into the freedible spotlight.  She isn't exactly shy.

Second, we're bringing you a special "sneak peek" for an exciting project we'll be rolling out soon in which we'll be asking the freedible community to join with us in working to help every family in America come together this Thanksgiving - whatever their eating restrictions may be.

So please, log in to the site to see what's new.  Add a link to your most recent blog post, or post a recipe in our fully-searchable community cookbook with our new feature - exclusive for bloggers  to link back to your site.  See what our new community - your new community - is up to.
Happy Eating,

Don't leave the future of food allergies to chance!

Have a few things you'd like to change about the life of the custom eater? We'll bring your voice to FABlogCon - even if you can't!

Next week I'll be flying out to Las Vegas, where I'm honored to be moderating the closing panel of the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference.  I'm extra-thrilled because this panel will be focused on the question at the core of freedible: what can we do to "close the gaps" in existing care for food restrictions (and food allergies in particular) - whether that be a matter of policy and legislation or of support forums and online resources.

For the conference, food allergies docent and freedible member Jenny Sprague has brought together an amazing roster of speakers and panels - and we want to make sure your voice is heard along with theirs. 

All you have to do to join this important conversation is to log in to the site and add links to your blog posts on things you'd like to see change for food allergy sufferers and other custom eaters, whether they be about policy, legislation, products or research.  Let's start the conversation rolling - and keep it going long after the conference ends!
