Food Blog for Lawton Foodies

A place to celebrate food! We share information on new restaurants, give reviews of local places, share our own personal food pics and recipes. Basically all of us love food and enjoy talking about it; if you do too then this is the place for you! -Aimie Swartz.

**THE BLOG'S RULES**
1) Treat other the way you want to be treated! Disrespect, insults and foul language will not be tolerated.
2) Businesses are allowed to advertise one ad for free on Mondays only. If you are interested in advertising more often then we'd love for you to do so but ask that you refer to the rules below to learn about how to advertise by helping out a local community non-profit.
3) When writing a negative review, do not post an employee's name on the blog.
4) No blocking of any admins.
$$$ RULES ON ADDITIONAL ADVERTISING $$$
A. Any entity that profits in any WAY, SHAPE, or FORM from advertising will be allowed to post one "bonus" ad per week on the day of their choice, but MUST do the following:
1) The entity MUST give out a $10 gift certificate to a blog member the same day the ad is posted.
AND
2) The entity MUST also make a monetary donation of at least $10 OR donate a $10 grocery store gift card to a Lawton charity of their choice. Proof must be provided. At the top of your ad, put "Food Blog Ad"
B. Non for profits are allowed to advertise once per week on any day. We're here to help those who help others. If you aren't sure whether or not your org is a non for profit, chances are it's not.
