How it all started:

For me it all started two years ago with Instagram. A catering friend knowing my love for cooking advised me to start taking pictures of my creations and post them on Instagram. I really liked the response I got but felt the need to take it furthur. I wanted to give my followers recipes.

Months later,  while visiting friends in  Long Island, New York I sought the advise of our friend’s daughter with a successful website and blog. She helped me set up on WordPress.

 

Advice to New Bloggers:

  • Connect with other bloggers.
