Defining myself as a ‘food blogger’ would be the best as I am writing my own story today. I have completed my graduation on business management and I really haven’t applied my knowledge in this field that much. Started thinking about a food blog was something takes courage because I have my 9a.m.-5p.m. job you know. I was confused and quite an amateur in this field. All my plans and encouragement was based on my love for food and writing about food. I used to work hard to maintain both my jobs and it was real tough. My blog was going well and every morning I checked the comments on my post and start my day with a smile.
It won’t be wrong if I call Vancouver a ‘food city’ as so many restaurants with yummy menus they have, not to forget the variety they offer. I love Japanese food, hence Hapa Izakaya and Guu is my all time favorite. All the foodies like me, explore restaurants to taste something new and unique. And for a food blogger like me, it’s a must to be introduced with different tastes and flavors. Bestie is my favorite place in Vancouver to hang out with my friends. It’s hard to resist when you get Chinatown’s best Currywurst and crispy fries. Shopping is another thing I love that gives you an excuse to go eating; I use it a lot actually.
So, let’s get back to my jobs, one I had to do for a living and one I would love to do for my living. I had to compromise my weekends and my evening. As a working woman, my family already had enough to complain. So, finally it was time to think or to take a risk with my passion. I decided to leave my scheduled job (thank god I did that) and thought of making a serious career out of my food blogging. I had enough time to post quality contents now. Being a food blogger is something excellent if you really know how to enjoy. For most of the bloggers, developing recipes is one of the tough posts. However, I do it with fun. Developing recipes need to experiment with the ingredients, so here comes shopping for my kitchen, but most of the time I experiment with what I have in my kitchen. My kids love to taste them first and I knew how it tastes from their expressions. Then I post these recipes with a little editing of my backgrounds. Now that I get enough time to live with it, I am experiencing every day of my life with something new. A food blogger has that unbelievable power to share their expression with the world when they taste something new or regular food with a new experience.
It was once a hobby for me to write about food. Now that I have started my career with it, it feels like I can once again discover me through my posts. I feel proud to be a part of this amazing community that helps me removing obstacles between me and all my readers to share all the feelings. I realize this is the way I would love to be remembered.
