Why do I write? – A blog hop

Uncategorized | September 14, 2014 | By

I’ve been nominated by my fellow blogger Lancashire Food for a blog hop, thanks Lindsey for the nomination. I have many friends in the blogging world, I’ve met some of them in person and it always surprises me just how well I know them through their writing.  So here’s where you get find out a little bit about me and my motivation to blog and it should lead to you some other bloggers who you may not yet have met.

Why do I write ?
Sometimes I ask myself this question, mostly when I have a backlog of posts to write and am worn out from the day job!  I love to communicate and mostly to communicate about the things that inspire and enthuse me.  I first started blogging because of the crafting that I did, I was part of a craft forum and one or two people started blogs, so I thought I’d have a go too.  The craft blog, Serial Crafter,  is still there and, even though I rarely post on it, there are still a lot of posts to see. I created Farmersgirl Kitchen at the same time (2007) and  put up the occasional post until it started to take over from crafting. 

What am I working on ?
I currently have 7 posts in draft including this one, and another couple that haven’t made the draft stage yet.  These include a review round up, a Bookmarked Recipe and some recipe posts.

How does my blog differ from others of its genre?

Farmersgirl Kitchen is all about home cooking, I offer my readers a eclectic mix of recipes, product reviews, restaurant reviews, cook book reviews and a little bit of travel.  I’ve been working hard on my food styling and photography, and what I’d really like to be known for is my story telling, both in words and pictures. 

How does my writing process work?
I just write, no one ever accused me of being lost for words!  I sit down at the computer post up the pictures then fill in the blanks.  If I have time, I’ll leave the post and come back to it the next day to see if I can improve the writing, but often I just spell check, preview and post! 
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my blogging life, part of the rules of this blog hop is to nominate two other bloggers, here are two very special blogs full of cake and kindness, I give you…
