Today I would like to welcome Chandice from Gluten Free Frenzy. I had a chance to learn more about her blog and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about yourself.
Hey everyone! My name is Chandice Probst. I am so lucky to have the 2 most amazing guys, my wonderful and incredibly patient hubby, and my oh-so-adorable baby boy. I, along with my angel through this process, my mother, found out in May of 2006 that we have Celiac disease so first and foremost, I am a gluten-free junkie! I graduated from Arizona State University in Exercise and Health Wellness. I currently teach cycling/spinning at a local gym as well as do private Pilates both in home and at a 5 star resort, The Phoenician. I love using the schooling I received to help others achieve a better lifestyle. I also love cooking and adapting regular (a.k.a tasty) recipes to accommodate my gluten-free lifestyle. I have been busy (but loving every minute) founding the Celiac Disease Foundations non-profit, Arizona East Valley Celiac Support Group, This group as quickly grown to well over 40 attendees each month. I love it! Not only do I enjoy sharing the world of tasteful and happy gluten-free living with others but I love to take my son on bicycle rides, read the Twilight books (oh yeah, I am an obsessed fan :), and spend time with all my extended family, sweet husband and son. They are all amazing!
Please tell me about your blog.
Gluten Free Frenzy is a gluten-free living lifestyle blog that has everything from recipes, to restaurant menus to awesome giveaways! My goal with this site is to create a gathering place for anyone looking to live a gluten-free lifestyle without eliminating any of their favorite foods. I will do everything I can to provide people with a gluten-free recipe for all the yummiest and most popular foods (think P.F. Changs Mongolian beef…we got it!). Gluten Free Frenzy also attracts individuals who aren’t gluten intolerant but are looking to get a healthier spin on their favorite food recipes. We are known as the #1 gluten-free giveaway site! I like to pair gluten-free giveaways with some of my other favorite products that just make life more enjoyable. For example, we will be pairing gluten-free chocolate with The Slanket in an upcoming Valentines themed giveaway. Who doesn’t want to snuggle up with some chocolate?!
How long have you been blogging?
I have blogging since July and loving every minute!
How did you get started?
I had a vision of a one-stop gluten-free living website that could provide individuals with a way to still enjoy their favorite foods while on a gluten-free diet either due to illness or otherwise.
What kinds of products do you feature on your blog?
I feature many gluten-free products as well as some other of my favorite products that make life more enjoyable!
What was your favorite giveaway?
My favorite was either the “Start 2010 Off Right” Clearplay DVD player & Rocky Mountain Popcorn or the Pamela’s Products “Big Holiday” giveaway. Both products are amazing whether you live gluten-free or not.
Who does your blog appeal to?
My blog appeals to anyone looking for tasty, gluten-free recipes or anyone who enjoys winning amazing products for free! 🙂
What direction do you see your blog going in the future?
My goals for Gluten Free Frenzy’s future are already beginning to come true. We are booked out through August with many amazing giveaways every month! I look forward to getting more great products out there for people to be introduced to through Gluten Free Frenzy.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced so far with your blog?
Trying to keep up while only updating when my little guy is napping or eating so I don’t take away from our time together.
What do you love about blogging?
I love hearing the excitement in the e-mails of people who have won a prize or found a recipe they have been missing for so long. It is truly so great to hear that I have made someones day.
Do you have a blogging pet peeve?
I wish making my site as cute as I want didn’t take so long. My poor husband is a software engineer and he has spent hrs. typing in html code to make it look so nice for me. He is the best!
Do you have any advice for the readers entering your giveaway?
My advice for readers entering my giveaways on glutenfreefrenzy.com is to make sure and enter as many ways as possible. I always post a mandatory entry plus bonus entries. Usually the winners are people who have entered in more than one way. I promise, they aren’t too tough of entries. 🙂
Tell me some of your favorite blogs that you read.
