Blog traffic

Hello all, I have a question. I've noticed from my google analytics that i've been getting a lot of traffic from a forum It's in German though, and I can't find the right thread to translate it so not sure if it's good things or bad things lol. So can anyone help?

Also, it turns out that I was briefly featured on Cookies Cakes and Craft shop which i love and have bought stuff from before. Here's me second from the top under Louise from Cake Journal, another great site.
That's all for now, off to the kitchen for some baking...

Do you want to dine in RTÉ's "The Restaurant"?

Are you a foodie who loves to eat out?

Do you know your chilli from your cayenne?

Then we want you!

We would like to invite any interested members of Irish food & wine blogs to apply to be a diner on our upcoming series.

The Restaurant is back for its seventh series on RTÉ One. In each
episode a 'celebrity' head chef will take on the culinary challenge to
produce a top class, three course meal with two value-for-money wines.
The celebrities who become chefs for a night will be people who have a
passion for food and dining. The programme will give the "chef" the
opportunity to "go pro" for one night and serve up a real restaurant
meal. The resident critics are Tom Doorley and Paolo Tullio, with one
other special guest critic each week. The identity of the "mystery
chef" will remain secret to all in "The Restaurant" until after the
meal. Before the chef leaves the kitchen the critics will decide
whether the meal is worth a star rating of between one and five. When
the celebrity chef's identity is revealed they sit down with critics
to find out how they fared.

Dining at 'The Restaurant' involves becoming a 'critic' for the
evening. We need YOU, as our diners, to get involved in the experience
and to voice your opinions on the food and wine being served to you.

Vision Independent Productions are looking for diners for the series
which will be filming on location in The Wineport Lodge in Athlone
this September, so if you think you're up to the challenge of
critiquing the menu the mystery "chef" whips up in the kitchen, we
want to hear from you.

Don't forget to include your contact details - Name, address, phone
number and tell us a little about yourself and your interest cooking
and dining.
