Why did you decide/inspired to start a food blog?
My blog journey began in 2015 when I was overwhelmed with recipe ideas and spending more time baking in my kitchen than ever so I started Tasha’s Artisan Foods to document my food journey. It helped me grow as a baker and food enthusiast, and learn more about healthy, clean eating which I implemented in my business of catering and recipe development.
What’s your blog about? Who reads it? How long have you been blogging?
My blog is about fresh, locally sourced and nutritious foods, with room for both hearty, wholesome meals and indulgent treats! I have been blogging for three years now and have had the privilege of interacting with people from all over the world who share my interest in good, clean eating and of course the occasional sweet treats.
What do you think food blogging will look like in 5 years?
The world of food blogging has already changed so much in the years I have been a part of this community. With the advent of social media and ever changing forms of creating and sharing content, we are always discovering new and creative ways to connect with our readers. I think that in the next five years, food blogs will continue to take on new forms through multimedia platforms and social networking, sharing will become more instant as it already is with the increasing popularity of live stories and we will be sharing content in a multitude of forms. That being said, I do believe that when it comes to food blogs, written content will continue to remain an immovable pillar.
Which part of blogging excites you most: the recipe development, the post writing, or the photography?
The answer to this has changed for me, as in my few years of blogging I have gone from a self taught baker just sharing my recipes, to an amateur photographer who spend as much time on food styling, photography and editing as I do on writing. Earlier I loved sharing my food journey through writing and photos were not of as much importance. Now, I feel my work is best expressed through the art of photography and I genuinely enjoy being able to capture beauty and my hard work through the lens.
Do you have any special blogging tip for new bloggers?
I haven’t been in the food blogging community for long and I’m sure I still have plenty to learn, but what I can advise with complete certainty is that its best to be authentic and true to yourself. There is plenty of inspiration available all over the blogging sphere, social media, cookbooks etc. that can serve as the basis for your work, but what’s important to remember is to stay honest and give credit to others. What I also learned after months of doing research on writing about food is to take your own time to develop your personal style, don’t worry about matching up to others, find your own groove and work on self improvement according to your own standards. Finally I’d say, keep your mind open, because you never know how and when you may get inspired and that’s the only way you’re going to grow.
