Two Years

I've written over 400 posts on this website since I began writing here two years ago. When I started this blog I just wanted to go gluten free, I didn't even know yet that I had Crohn's. What a journey it's been. I wouldn't be where I am today without this blog, without the internet, without all of you! I can't say thank you enough for all of your support, your own journeys and websites and tweets. It's been an amazing experience. I hope that my third year of writing will be just as successful. I'm hoping to make this site a wonderful resource, I've already created two lists for your reading pleasure. The Gluten and Other Allergen Free list and the Crohn's and Colitis list. These are loaded with awesome websites, mostly personal blogs, that I've been keeping in my blog reader. Finally I am able to share with all of you where I get my inspiration... which is from all of you!! If you are not on either list, please let me know!! I'll be happy to add you.

I agree with you on what an amazing experience blogging has been, I think I have grown and evolved more as a person over these past 10 months of blogging than in my previous 35 years!

Meeting such wonderful people (like yourself!) that live a similar life struggling with dietary restrictions, has been so therapeutic for me. The support and encouragement is priceless.

I am trying to organize my site too, I can't even find my own recipes half the time! Wish I had known what I was doing before I started blogging, I just figured out post tags a short while ago! :-)

Keep up the great work Jen!

Blogging has also been an amazing experience for me, I completely agree with you. I am glad it has been such an awesome source for you.

I would love to be added to the gluten free list, my blog is about holistic health and intuitive eating but I also publish a couple recipes per week which are all gluten free.

Jen -- many thanks for your continually resourceful posts over the last two years. particularly on evenings when the fatigue and/or pain wins and i am too tired to cook experimentally, i've turned to blogs like yours and Gutsy Girl's for easy and non-destructive options :) lately especially, i've been neglectful in the recipe-posting department. keep 'em coming!
