  1. This is a great site. Wow, you really are helping people with this information. There is a lady I help out and she is an author and she also interviews companies and reviews GF products etc. I think you two should definitely hook up. She actually refers other helpful GF bloggers and sites on her gluten free blog and her gluten free site too. Let me know if you’d like to hook up and I can let her know. I think she would be interested in referring your site. Would you be interested in referring hers too? Thanks, Rosie

  2. Thanks for the post. Always love to find fellow gluten-free bloggers. Would love to hook up with her and refer to her site.
