One of my favorite parts of being a blogger is how it connects you with other people. You would think that sitting behind a computer all day would be isolating but I’ve met some of my dearest friends through blogging. When I was first blogging, gift exchanges were all the rage. In fact, I even helped host one, one year. But as blogging and the Internet have changed, you just don’t see these swaps as often. So, when I discovered The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, my heart burst with joy.
The same week I found out about the Cookie Swap, I also learned of a bake sale sponsored by one of my favorite local groups #MKEFoodies. Coincidentally, both events contributed to the same wonderful cause, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It was a win-win on all fronts. I got to enjoy baked goods from amazing bloggers across the country, support one of my favorite local organizations, and help both groups raise a significant amount of money for an awesome non-profit!
