Simple Indian food is glad to introduce two new series about food bloggers shortly.
The first one would be about successful and popular food bloggers who would be sharing lots of information about themselves and their blogs.
The second one would be to introduce new bloggers (those blogging from Jan '09) and promote their blogs through Simple Indian Food.
Food bloggers interested in promoting their blogs, please mail me a short description about your blog, the cuisine you specialize and your objective in blogging to email@example.com
