How long have you been blogging?
I came to food writing 4 years ago via a very long career in advertising and a not so long one in education but I have always used writing as a creative outlet. As well as running Taste Today, I also write on a freelance basis for a diverse range of clients and have a day job back in the big, bad world of design and advertising.
Why did you decide to start your blog?
I was dealing with a very frustrating career in education and coping with the diagnosis of 2 chronic illnesses and I started writing as a means of distracting myself.
What do you hope to achieve for your content in 2018?
I really want to cover more travel content, as alongside eating it is my favourite pastime time. I also want to investigate vlogging.
What is your favourite social media channel & why?
They all have their pros and cons but this year I really 'discovered' Instagram. Even though I am a writer I am very visually led so I love the content that can be created on that platform. People will always look at an image before reading the words.
What is your favourite tool or app that helps in your content creation?
I come from an era BC, (or Before Computers) so I always carry a notebook and pen. I couldn't live without them. My iPhone too.
Who is your blogging inspiration?
I follow a lot of photographers and food stylists on Instagram. I come from a family of 4 generations of photographers and as such I love and appreciate beautiful,
What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?
Fun/Random fact about you:
I am something of an adrenaline junkie and have a rather dangerous passion for extreme sports.
