Join The #CookForFamily Initiative – Be part of the 100 Bloggers to make that difference!


The following is an invite to all bloggers.

Dear fellow Bloggers,

This is Daniel from Daniel’s Food Diary, and I have started a little bloggers’ initiative called #CookForFamily.

Most would agree that eating together with the family brings indescribable joy, along with bonding, quality time together and better relationships. And as what most moms would say, “Home-cooked food is always healthier”. However, many have moved from cooking and eating together at home, to eating out because we are just too busy.

The #CookForFamily is a bloggers-for-bloggers initiative. No competition, sponsors, or hidden agenda involved. It is created with a simple objective of getting more bloggers, and hopefully their fans and followers, to start cooking and bonding with their families.

How #CookForFamily Works
Here are some simple steps:
– Pick any day in July to cook a meal for a single member of your family, entire family or loved ones.
– The meal does not have to be anything fanciful, as long as it is cooked from the heart.
– Remember to take photos of your cooking.
– Blog about your cooking, the experience, your thoughts, what your family thinks of your cooking, and encourage others to #CookForFamily too.
– Publish the blog entry on 6th August Monday to generate more online hype.
– Hash-tag the different social media channels (eg twitter, instagram) with #CookForFamily

Be Part of #CookForFamily
When bloggers unite, we can make a difference – and I hope to gather 100 bloggers to be part of this simple initiative.

    markets and real BTU rich alternatives including coal and
