Going in line with me doing more casual posts in this blog plus the fact that I’ve been having this fascination with cooking for about a year now, I decided that it won’t be too out of ordinary to start writing food blog posts which are basically about my dining experiences, etc. Plus this also helps me build my local audience more as discussed in the previous blog post. 🙂
As a blogger that sort of started in the ‘make money online’ niche, I learned blogging about what you ate for lunch or dinner from John Chow. During the time I was amazed how the guy can be considered a good blog for the topic of making money when in fact he’s just posting about food which essentially is spending money.
Long story short I did not take that route during the peak of this blog as I stucked to the topic for the most part while having some personal updates once in a while. Since I’m not blogging exclusively about internet marketing and all those stuff, I figured I can start becoming more loose with the topic of my posts which is what you would exactly see if you go back to my past 10-20 posts.
I figured that since I’ve been doing that anyway then maybe I should start writing about food and my dining experiences since that’s what I’ve been to mostly outside work. I contemplated about starting a new blog specifically for that but that would require me to a ton of ‘sweat work’ to get the blog up and running which is the last thing that I want at this point. Since I’ve worked with some local establishments in the past 6 months or so, I asked myself “why not just write them here?”. And that’s what I decided to start doing from now on. 🙂
Now I don’t consider myself a foodie. Well not at least since last year. You can read my blog post regarding my sudden fascination with cooking but basically everything began when I started cooking and watching videos. Now it sounds like what every sane person would normally do except that I’ve taken most of what I’ve learned into action. I started cooking food I don’t even know and I became super interested in trying out different dishes that I have zero knowledge about.
So that’s basically the rationale behind my decision. And as mentioned earlier, it would be another way for me to get in touch with the local audience and hopefully local businesses as well. Who knows? I might get invited to eat at the most prestigious restaurants around for free!
I’m kidding but that’s half meant. 😉
