Happy 1st Birthday #fdbloggers!


 We are 1! What a year it’s been. *puts on party hat and blows out candle*

I genuinely would have never believed when I started up #fdbloggers a year ago it would have caught on, let alone be as soon widely used as it has done, and it’s all thanks to a brilliant community of food bloggers who have been willing to share their posts, pictures and tips online.

It wouldn’t be right without birthday cake of course… 
It’s crazy to believe, but over the past year our little hashtag has been used a staggering 59,303 times on every continent across the globe! *pulls party popper*
On top of that we’ve made 136 million estimated Twitter impressions, with the hashtag being used 59,272 times on Twitter by jaw-dropping 14,595 user! Seriously guys, pat on the back to you!
(above: where #fdbloggers has been used across the globe)
Every week on a Thursday (8-9pm GMT) we gather to chat all things food on Twitter to share advice, tips and what food bits and bobs we’ve been up to. Throughout the year we’ve been tweeted, retweeted and mentioned by celebs, food brands and a whole lot of lovely bloggers.
To give you a little snapshot, here’s a shout out to our regulars:
