I am proud to announce Nik Snack's first EVER blogging event:
July is National Ice Cream Month in the United States and what better way to celebrate than by making ice cream!
I love ice cream and I know I'm not the only one. With the temperatures rising and our ovens and stoves out of commission for a while, why not crank up the ol' machine or freezer and make a sweet treat? The possibilities and combinations are endless! Not only are there ice creams, there are gelatos, sorbets, sherberts, bombes, custards, yogurts. . . the list could go on!
This is a chance for you to show the blogging community your favorite frozen treat. Posting your favorite gelateria, homemade or cookbook recipe, or favorite treat from the local grocer's freezer are all acceptable entries. Entries posted in the last month (starting May 18, 2008) can count as well. Simply provide a link to your previous post within a new post with the Ice Cream, You Scream icon.
To participate, submit an entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
*Your name, hometown and country
*The name of your ice cream, sorbet, or other frozen confection
*A link to your blog post about the dish, a short description of the dish, including a recipe or just a description, recipe, and picture, if you don't have a blog.
*Your blog's name and URL
*A link to an optional photo (it must be uploaded to an online storage/sharing service like Flickr or Photobucket) that measures no larger than 240 x 160
Feel free to copy and paste the Ice Cream, You Scream: Blogging Event icon in your blog post.
Participation will be open until July 15, 2008, 12 midnight (EST) to prepare for a huge posting on National Ice Cream Day, July 20th!
Email all entries to email@example.com with Ice Cream, You Scream in the Subject line.
I look forward to seeing all of your yummy frozen treats, soon!
