Hi, I am  @theforkedspoon 

I first started food blogging back in 2011. A recent graduate from the University of California Santa Cruz with a Bachelors of Science in Molecular, Celluar, Developmental Biology, I was working at Stanford University School of Medicine when my boyfriend (now husband) and I decided to pack our things into boxes, say goodbye to our jobs and backpack through Nepal and South East Asia for six months. Throughout that journey, I fell in love with the blogging community, traveling, and cooking (plus eating) new foods and flavors.

While traveling through Asia and expanding my taste pallet, I learned some of my favorite recipes by taking professional culinary classes at various cooking schools with some fantastic chefs along the way(my favorite was in Krabi, Thailand). And I managed to share and create a few pins along the way 😉.

Since returning from Asia, I started (and said farewell) to two separate websites – Lost & Found on Blogger and Coffee & Crayons on Square Space. I also lived, worked, and traveled through Europe while working as an Au Pair in Germany, had a baby, got married, learned how to use a camera, and survived a stroke.

Now I focus mostly on recipes at The Forked Spoon.

I now spend my days in El Dorado Hills, California, developing recipes, taking photos, and washing dishes, all while trying to keep up with my very active offspring as I convince my husband it’s time for our next overseas adventure.

Summed up- Mom-to-one wild and beautiful boy, I am a perpetual travel planner, dreamer, adventure seeker, all-you-can-eat buffet food lover, and (self-diagnosed) food hoarder. I enjoy running for fun, drinking coffee and wine (sometimes simultaneously), and eating cookies by the dozen.

Hi, all, I'm Kelly @kidpressroom. Thank you for inviting me to be part of this rich community! My business provides writing/publishing resources to writers of the youth (children, teens, and young adults) as well as educational resources for the youngsters.  By being part of the community, I hope to network, learn more about Pinterest's best practices, improve my engagement, and get answers to burning questions--I do have quite a few, so I've been perusing the sections here. Cheers!

Hi, I'm Lorrie Reynolds.  I'm fairly new to Pinterest as a "creator" but am excited about the possibilities.  I own Maximum Fun Dog Sports and I've been helping dog owners train basic behaviors, tricks, and agility since 2005 in person.  Now I'm working to move online so I can help more people.  I'm focused on making dog training accessible for everyone, regardless of their physical ability, goals for competing or not, and current knowledge level.  I can be found here:  @lorriemaxx120200112_Onyx shake 2.jpg

Hi Gabby and the Pinterest Biz Community!

I'm Barbara Marrs, a fabric designer and environmental activist, and my home business, BM Fabric Designs, specializes in textile surface designs that promote awareness of today's key global issues, like climate change action, saving endangered species, and preserving Earth's biodiversity. 

I attended today's Pinterest Creators Connect and learned so much! I have been creating Pinterest posts daily for a year all on my own, and never realized this amazing business community existed! Since I am a brand new member, I honestly don't even know where to begin! So please--some advice as to how to get started on the path to becoming an active participating member of this great group.

Thank you so much!

Barbara
