I've probably been asked the question "what's your dream job?" a thousand times. And my answer is always "getting paid to eat and write about it." Then I slap my knee hard and share a good laugh with whoever asked me, because that's just crazy. Until now.
It's true, my dream job has arrived; Tourism Richmond is seeking a food blogger up for the challenge of eating at 365 restaurants in 365 days, all in beautiful Richmond, B.C. The successful applicant receives a generous salary, help with living expenses, their 365 meals, and a pass to the Richmond Oval to work it off!
With applications due by the end of March, I've launched a full-fledged campaign to get hired. If you're up for it, I would really appreciate your support! I'm asking people to send in photographs of themselves holding signs that say #lindseatsrichmond, with their location below and names too, if they wish. Photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org until the end of March.
If you're up for taking things even further, you can upload your photo to Facebook and/or Twitter (follow me at @lindsay_lauren) with the hashtag #lindseatsrichmond. Soon the world will be asking "Who is this Lindsay girl, and how does she know SO MANY COOL PEOPLE?" and I'll say "I don't know, but I want to bake cookies for them all. With extra chocolate. And nuts. The expensive ones."
Here are the photos - 277 from 6 continents, 29 countries, and 131 cities! Thank you so much to everyone. The response has been incredible. Click here to see thumbnails of all 277 photos, courtesy of Frank Lee.
