How long have you been blogging?
1 year 6 months.
Why did you decide to start your blog?
I'm a nutritionist by background and have always loved food and cooking. I spent a lot of my spare time in the kitchen cooking and baking and started to type up a lot of my recipes. After coming across amazing food blogs online - I knew immediately that this would be a great way to record and share all my recipes...I had to give it a go. A year and a half later and I am in my element - developing recipes, cooking, photographing, and writing.
What do you hope to achieve for your blog in 2017?
2017 is all about introducing new themes and niches into Properfoodie. I hope to bring in alot more health content through my nutrition knowledge and also take recipes in a more seasonal direction with the help of a newly acquired allotment.
What is your favourite social media channel & why?
I love pinterest, its a source of so much inspiration and a great way to share my own creations.
Who is your blogging inspiration?
Lindsey Ostrom from pinchofyum.com is the first blogger that I ever followed. Her recipes and pictures drew me in immediately and I still aspire to create recipes and photos that are on a par to Lindseys.
What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?
Don't be afraid to just get going with something. Your ideas and creativity will direct you down the right path - theres no wrong way to approach your first blog post.
Fun/Random fact about you:
I recently won a 3 night stay in Devon through the cook the cover competition in Delicious magazine. First time in my life that I have ever won anything 🙂
