Are you a serious food blogger?
Apparently not. To be a serious food blogger you have to blog only about food. Just food. All the live long day.
I blog about other things, inbetween copious posts about food festivals, restaurant reviews, recipes, meal plans..waffling about food..and waffles. But I’m not a serious food blogger. Or so I’ve been told.
I was annoyed by this. I still am. This blog was born out of a love for food and my family but without the food but I probably wouldn’t have started it. I used to tweet photos of my meals ( we all do it ) and recipe ideas to my small but loyal group of twitter followers and people started to suggest that I write my recipes up in a blog. That was one of the reasons I began.
Two years on and I still get a thrill when I write about food, or when someone tells me they followed one of my recipes and it was successful. Or when twitter followers tell me that one of my recipes is now their families favourite meal – that’s you Amanda. I get samples of amazing products, invites to events and I get to write about my favourite topic. Plus I’m now an official blogger for the BBC Good Food Show – how cool is that?
Just because I don’t write purely about one subject doesn’t mean that it’s not hugely important to me. Because it is. It really is.
Sad as it may sound to some of you I am a complete and utter food nerd. I love food. I could spend hours, days..weeks discussing the best way to cook pulled pork or how I get my cakes to rise. I will however at some point in between tell you all about my amazing family because I love them too. In fact I love them more. YES more than food. Madness I tell you.
I may also blather about things like breastfeeding and music festivals because I’m passionate about them.
If any of it doesn’t interest you then please just move onto the next post which I do hope does interest you!
So there it is. I’m a super serious Food Blogger. I don’t care who knows it.
End of rant.
