Blog Story

I started my blog, because I have always enjoyed creating recipes and wanted to share them since I can remember.  My career took another path for many years, and I am so glad I am now sharing my recipes with my wonderful readers and a fantastic blogging community.

Advice to New Bloggers:

Blogging is a journey, not a quick trip.  It takes a lot of work and time, especially if you are like me, and have no background in photography or website design and management.


My nominees are (in no particular order):

Millie of Millie Thom

Vidya of Traditionally Modern Food

Paula of Never a Dull Bling

    Many congratulations on both awards, Antonia, They’re both well deserved. I agree that blogging is a journey and yes, it does take a lot of work and time. It’s been a big learning curve for me, too – but It’s such a satisfying experience.

    Great post!! I loved reading your answers (and your questions!) Ah, coffee… 🙂 Why Antartica? I’m highly curious. Thanks for participating!

      04/06/2016 at 11:16 pm #

      Thanks Katie! Years ago, I watched a documentary on a trip of a lifetime to Antarctica. Passengers were aboard a ship with an ice-cutter, which enabled them to visit areas in Antarctica people had never set foot. It was incredibly beautiful and amazing. It has always stuck in my mind 😀
