I’ve decided to add a new category to my blog called ‘Rants, Raves and Inspirations’. I constantly see, hear or experience things that either make me want to rant and rave or gives me inspiration to cook, write and share.
So to start I thought I would tell you what inspired me to start my own blog, who my supporters are and how they encourage me to continue doing what I love.
I have always been a lover of food and travel which in part is thanks to my parents, dad for dragging us all over the country with his work and mum for always providing us with wonderful, tasty food. Once I was old enough to make my own money I was able to travel to different places and experience the beauty of the surrounds as well as the food. I enjoyed going to different restaurants and then trying some of these new and exciting cuisines at home. I am by no means a chef, just a home cook who loves to share my home, food and recipes as well as experiences with others.
Although I have always liked travel and eating I didn’t actually realise until later in life that I liked writing as well. I’ve always been an avid reader but didn’t really think much about writing until I started living on my own after a relationship break up. This is when I decided to try new things and get out there.
I took a journalism course, a writing course and a modelling course. All helped me in numerous ways but what really helped me get this blog up and running was my partner Wayne and my dear mother and my sister Denise. They have been very helpful, encouraging and supportive and without them I doubt I would actually be doing this. I didn’t really know much about what a blog was so I entered into this new world quite blind. I am still learning along the way and I know I have a lot more to do to enhance my blog, my experiences and you (my readers) experiences as well.
I will continue my journey and hope you all continue this journey with me. And I also want to say thank you to all my family and friends, old and new, who have been following me on this journey and I would love to hear from you, hear your thoughts, comments, tips or even if you have something food or travel related that inspires you or makes you want to rant and rave!
