    This is a great post and topic. I started my first food blog in 2007 and had to abandon it due to lack of focus and drive. I started my current blog in 2009 and thought I had a good plan for what I would cover, but it’s still a morphing thing. I think that if you aren’t really sure how you want to focus your blog, try a few “test” posts out in different styles, even basing them on your favorite blogs for inspiration if necessary. See which one exhausted you and which one made you feel awesome. Maybe you actually enjoy posting about restaurants more than you thought you would!

      Thank you so much for sharing, Jen. Trying a few “test” posts is a great idea — I totally agree that it does take time to figure out what you want to do and what fits the best. I also agree the blog inevitably changes and morphs as time goes by. Very good points!

    I’d love to have more information on how to start a blog. I’ve toyed with the idea for awhile and I’m just not sure how to get started and what some of the different options are. I hope there will be more lessons to come or maybe you can email me with more info.

      Hey Toni! Thanks for the feedback with your interest in starting a food blog. I am seriously considering a webinar and, if enough people are interested, I will arrange it. Please also feel free to email me if you have any specific questions :)

    Lacey – GREAT idea to post about how to start up a food blog. I started my own blog about 9 months ago. I’ve done my best to keep it updated and looking professional, but I’ve had a hard time getting the number of daily visitors that I had intended for. I finally got around to getting my own domain (www.all-food-considered.com), so we’ll see how that works out. Thanks for the advice, and keep up the good work!

      Thanks, TJ! It does take some time for the number of visitors to increase, so keep up the good work. I will probably add a new post in this series for how to increase traffic to your site too :)
