It’s the weekend! I took a vacation day today to head to NJ to visit my family. It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend, and I hope you are all gearing up for it! Next week is busy busy. I have a tweet up at the Melting Pot, dinner with some food and wine Twitter friends, a visit to a new cafe, and Taste of Cambridge, so I will enjoy some family time and rest this weekend!
Today’s foodie is a blogger who is new-ish to me, Brian from A Thought for Food. In the few weeks that I have been reading his blog, I have decided that he chose the perfect name for it. It is a beautiful site, and there is clearly a lot of thought put into it. He has some incredible food photos and recipes. My email correspondences with Brian have also really shown a lot of thought. When I needed a guest post because of a broken laptop he was the first to respond and ready to help. Overall, he is a great blogger, a super kind person, and someone I hope to meet at a Boston event soon! And I love the post he chose as his favorite so check it out!
How long have you been blogging?
July will mark the first anniversary of A Thought For Food
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love that blogging has introduced me to foodies from around the world who share a common love for cooking.
Planning what to blog about next. I just have too many recipes I want to make and not enough time to make all of them.
What has been your most fun blog post to write?
A recent entry where my wedding photographer came over and took pictures of a dinner I made, which included a whole grilled haddock. It was a very collaborative experience.
Where do you see your blog this time next year?
It took the past year for me to really find my voice and I see that continuing to develop in the years to come. I also believe that the blog thrives off of other people’s connections to the stories and recipes I write about, so I hope that my readership continues to grow.
Is there anything else about your blogging experience you would like to share?
I think it’s a challenge for any amateur cook to find an outlet to express their love for food. But what I’ve enjoyed so much about blogging is that it has allowed me to be creative in a way that few mediums can provide.

ALSO since many of you are healthy living bloggers/readers, I wanted to share with you a bit of amazingness. George, who I met at Vino Voyage, is riding across the country to raise money for the Community Rowing adaptive program. You can check out his bio, route, and find more information on the cause here. http://thexcrideforcri.us/site/Welcome.html. And yes, that’s riding a BIKE across the country from Boston, MA to Portland, OR. You can follow him on Twitter, and I am sure he would appreciate the support!
