I love to talk about food and so many people have listened to me and have told me I should start a blog. I took it all with a grain of salt but never gave it any consideration. It wasn’t until within the last year a friend of mine, who is a professional chef, told me that I should start a food blog that I really gave it any true thought. So then I started thinking, what the heck am I going to write about? There are many great food bloggers that I read and that I respect. Is there any way that I can really contribute anything else, can I be unique, and what is my angle?
My answer to the first two questions, I don’t know if I can contribute anything else to the conversation but I am sure going to try. I felt that this would be an excellent learning opportunity for me and would allow me to explore something that I am passionate about.
Now I have decided to start the blog, what I am going to talk about. I am by no means a chef, so centering a blog on cooking is not going to work for me. My chef friend told me I should do a blog about eating in Calgary but there are some really good blogs out there that do this already. So where does this leave me? And I decided why don’t you just talk about what you’re eating, whatever it is.
That is what you are going to see on this blog, what I am eating, where I am shopping for it and where you can find it. It may not be in Calgary, it may be in Las Vegas, Vancouver or Seattle (some of our recent travels), but really what I am eating. And so the evolution of Heather’s EATS (Eating and Tasting Stories), let the writing and sharing begin.
