Sneak Peak Numero Dos

When I was contacted by Wikio to see if I'd like to put up a sneak preview of the newest Food Blog Rankings on their site, I thought...why not!?  I'd just recently heard of Wikio when somebody pointed out that girlichef was listed there.  All I can say is...very cool!  I love finding new places for girlichef to gain exposure...and I happen to see a couple of other sites in the upcoming top 40 that I read.  I even have some friends and bloggy pals on there go, Deb & Priya ...woot!
