Special Announcement | theglutenfreechefblog Omnimedia, LLC & The FeaturedContributor Program

Hello Readers & Writers,

We are thrilled to announce our new media brand name theglutenfreechefblog Omnimedia, LLC.

Since beginning in 2012 we have grown into a full scale multi-faceted media platform with a reach of over 15,000 daily and weekly impressions well into the hundreds of thousands. With this, the need for high quality, current, and thought-provoking content by a diverse selection of practitioners, journalists, freelancers, and experts has become essential. Creating an official infrastructure for this content as well as a structure that supports our contributors is the reason for this organizational improvement.

Many moons ago when theglutenfreechefblog was a teeny tiny space where Editor in Chief, Calvin Eaton shared his personal struggles and journey into the world of gluten free cooking and living with chronic illness; all the posts and content were created solely by him. One post became two. Two became three and before long people all over the world were liking, loving, sharing, and reading content on theglutenfreechefblog.

Soon the blog sprouted legs and became a visible, tangible, living, breathing, organism that started to incorporate the voice of a diverse array of persons. Podcasts, books, social media, websites, and (most recently) a physical magazine embody theglutenfrechefblog Omnimedia, LLC (TGFCBO) and the demand for new content exceeded the ability of the one writer (Calvin). So Calvin connected with and called writers, guest bloggers, and contributors and you all answered.

To continue to meet the demands of the readers and viewers of our content the need for even more writers is required to keep TGFGBO operating optimally. Therefore, we were tasked to improve our system and infrastructure for connecting with and utilizing our featured contributors in all of our media outlets. This new Featured Contributor Program has been created to fulfill this need.
