Have you ever wondered how a blog was born? Besides contemplating eating cake for breakfast on a daily basis, here’s how this one got its life!
Carmen began blogging under A Texas Girl’s Adventures in Canada when her job moved her from Houston, Texas, USA to Toronto, Ontario, Canada in June 2007. As a way to keep her friends and family abreast of all the cool things she experienced living in Toronto, she started her blog. She blogged as often as she could about everything she could. A Texas Girl’s Adventures in Canada began to get noticed as social media — think Twitter and Facebook — grew in their early years and, eventually, Carmen was selected by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, or CBC, to be one of 13 “Citizen Bloggers” during the G20 Summit in Toronto in June 2010. She was paid a whopping $1 for her blog series.
Three years later, Carmen returned to her roots and moved back to Texas in the Summer of 2010. Her love for blogging in her beloved Toronto fizzled a bit after moving home but, after a while, she missed it and much to her readers’ delight, she launched Eat Cake for Breakfast. While she hasn’t been as faithful a blogger as she was in Toronto, she is passionate about the power of social media and especially about sharing all the cool things there are to do, see and eat in her hometown of Houston, Texas with those who live near and far.
And with that, we hope you’ll wake up in the morning with a smile on your face and grab a piece of cake; after all, what’s life without cake for breakfast?
