So here goes my story of how I started blogging,
I used to have an older vegan Recipe blog way back in 2010 when, I started blogging as a way to keep all my recipes in one place and, as an online journal to record my new experiments! My second child was very little and, I was home at the time. But as time progressed my posts got further and fewer, also I migrated my blog to WordPress. I did post sporadically at the time however, motherhood, work and life got in the way. My work as a full time mental health clinician took a lot of energy. Recently, I decided to look at posting on a daily to near daily basis, which is easy because I can schedule posts in advance with WordPress. Impressive right?!
My only advise for new bloggers is be yourself and blog about whatever makes you happy! The passion is what keeps you going, makes the blog authentic and brings readers. My passion is plant based food and recipe development, looking at traditional recipes, veganising and finding low fat and sugar alternatives, and this certainly keeps me going!
My nominees are……….. this is too hard! There are too many great blogs out there to list, so at random here they are,
Joie De Vivre
Vegan Food for Peace
Spicy and Sugary Bites
The Healthy Indian Kitchen
There is absolutely no compulsion to accept the nomination and, all the blogs that I follow are simply awesome! A great, big, Thank You for reading this far…
