What’s Our Blog About?

The name Brownie Bites comes from a common mispronunciation of our last name, Browne.  We have that pesky extra letter on the end of our otherwise very common name and we often hear it mispronounced as a well-loved chocolate-y treat.  Since this is a lifestyle blog, the word “Bites” seemed appropriate.  Our blog is full of “bites” of our lives, many of which revolve around food.  Kinda perfect, no?

We’re 30-something food and photography obsessed nerds living in East Tennessee with our son, Jasper, and our adorable and rascally Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Dexter and Dewey.

TASTES: This is the section where you will find recipes, either our own or round-ups of fun culinary delights that we’ve discovered on other websites and blogs.

TALES: Our own personal journal – if we have a funny or interesting story to tell, this is where it’ll be.

TRIPS: Anything travel-related can be found here, including photo journals of our travels, guides about what to do and where to eat, hotel and lodging tours, and more!

TINKERS: This is where we have fun!  Tinkers is the section that houses our food and product reviews, home improvement projects, and anything else we’re tinkering around with.

TOTS: All about life as new parents with our little boy, Jasper.  Read musings about how our lives have changed, get our take on the best baby “stuff” out there, and more.

 

Dexter and Dewey, our furry loves!

Press and Media Trips or Events

Because we enjoy flexibility in our family’s day-to-day schedule, media and press trips can be considered as a family or alone and we would be happy to represent and promote your brand at an event.  During the trip, I actively promote your brand through social media with a heavy lean toward Instagram and Twitter.  All posts will contain brand tags and any appropriate hashtags.  Upon return, several categorized posts will be scheduled detailing activities, events, restaurants, excursions, etc.  The posts will be filled with professional quality photos, promoted through social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest), and will have custom Pinterest-optimized image collages attached to each one.
