In 2010, I had already been following a few favourite blogs such as Annie’s Eats and 101 Cookbooks. I was very inspired by their work, but never thought I should start a food blog of my own! A good friend of mine eventually suggested I give blogging a shot – and that above anything else, the blog would be a place for me to document my successes (and failures) in the kitchen/my ongoing cooking goals. It could also be a place for me to record daily ongoings in life. It would be a creative outlet for me to share my photography and ideally, a place where I could connect with other food enthusiasts. I was intrigued, and after a few months of debating the idea, I finally sat down and typed up my first post.
I am so glad that I decided to start The Fig Tree and blogging in general. The Fig Tree has become exactly what my friend had suggested – a place for me to share my kitchen adventures, a place to document my food photography and a place where I can connect with others interested in food + cooking. I’ve met some truly wonderful people and consider myself to be incredibly lucky to have such wonderful readers. I never thought I’d have anyone but my family reading The Fig Tree and it thrills me to no end to have readers across the world. Blogging has been a fantastic experience and I look forward to presenting many more posts and meeting more inspiring people along the way.
2 years, 175 posts, and a wonderful group of readers that I appreciate with all of my heart :) Thank you!
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Chat soon!
