Hip, hip hooray it’s our Scoop Nutrition 4th blog birthday – by Emma Stirling APD

Gosh. What a week. It’s times like this, when we celebrate and reflect, that I really see and feel the power of keeping on blogging. And especially the power of growing a blog community, that is YOU. Please indulge me a little in this anniversary issue, as we celebrate, give thanks and announce our new Scoop Sub intern program.

the scoop on nutrition - 4th blog birthday

Woot woot
It’s been another very successful year of blogging at the Scoop Nutrition press office. We were blown away to be named Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Blog of the Month in May and  be asked to speak at the Problogger conference in Brisbane.  And I get such a chuckle out of being quoted in mainstream media  now as a “blogger” rather than a Gen X “dietitian”.  How ACE epic is that? And bumping into lovely readers, supporters and social media community, like at our launch this week of Healthy BYTe (see below).

And  I seem to keep on flogging spreading the social media positivity far and wide and encourage other APDs to take up the keyboard, speaking at conferences for Dietitians New Zealand and Sports Dietitians Australia. And even though I certainly can’t take credit for it, the numbers are growing! Check out our A to Z listing of Australian Dietitian and Nutrition Bloggers and let us know in the comments if we’re missing you or your listing needs a tweak?

This week Scoop Nutrition consulting is very excited to announce our partnership with Bright Young Things Event Makers – jump over to read about this bespoke catering service in this post by Cheryl on Busi Chic. That’s a rare selfie of me on the Right and dietitian Heidi Sze from Apples Under My Bed on the left, who is one of the presenters at our blogging workshop at the 2014 Dietitians Association of Australia conference.

I love you scoop nutrition imageSupporting…..dietitians and nutritionists on their social media journey and especially students, to have a go with the right kind of mentoring advice in our Sub of the Month program.  After nearly three years and 33 months of mentoring 33 outstanding individuals, we are a little sad to say, it’s time to move on.   We are moving to a very exciting 6 month internship platform with only 6 places at a time.  This will allow us to do more team work projects in the spirit of community and grow some exciting new things for you lovely readers.  Plus keep me young at heart and current. If you think you may love Scoop Nutrition as much as we do and you’re interested to hear more about the internship download:  Scoop Sub Intern Application 280214.  Applications close Tuesday 11 March.

Thanks for the words of wisdom and motivating me to get started! Happy 4th Birthday, I hope you enjoy some well deserved celebrations! 🙂

    Wow Em, those 4 years went by quickly! Chuckled when I read the bit about you being referred to as a ‘blogger’ first, ‘dietician’ second! Congratulations on your ‘epic’ success and looking forward to more great stories and pics from you.

    Happy birthday Scoop & Em 🙂 How special you & this site are to us dietitians, new grads, students & just general foodies. Trailblazing the way, highlighting future trends, as well as everyday eats with throwbacks to retro gems. Gotta love those posts. Thanks for the inspiration & friendship & opportunities x

    Yes please! I would love that.

    Yay for 4 years! Such an achievement to be producing such great content for so long – I hope that I can continue to do a good job for that long too. I look forward to seeing the new things that come from your internship program, and it would be great if you could add Healthy Stories to your list of Australian nutrition blogs too http://healthystories.com.au/
