It’s Friday afternoon and time for the Friday Foodie Feature! It’s been awhile since I have gotten a foodie to feature, but I am happy to say I have a few coming up, and I always welcome more. I love sharing this spot with other bloggers!
Today’s featured foodie is Stephanie from The Cookie Battle. I discovered Stephanie’s blog, like many other wonderful things, through the magic of Twitter, and I have enjoyed reading about her food and exercise adventures. I also really enjoy her writing style, and she’s a Boston girl. What’s not to love?
I am off to Napa tomorrow, but I will be blogging my wine country adventures whenever I can. Be sure to check in! And have a wonderful weekend, friends!
How long have you been blogging?
I started my blog on February 17th, 2010, so I just had my one year blogiversary! I took a long hiatus in the middle, but have been blogging consistently since August. It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year! I had a few short lived blogs before The Cookie Battle, one fitness related and one entertainment related, before I discovered my true blogging passion of food (specifically cookies). And so The Cookie Battle was born
What is your favorite thing about blogging? Least favorite?
My favorite thing about blogging is the comments. I love hearing what people have to say when I ask questions at the bottom of my posts. I love getting other people’s opinions and thoughts about what I write, and to know people can relate to me and what I’m writing about. I still get excited every time I get a new comment!
My least favorite thing is there are times when I feel as though all I do is focus on the blog…whether it be writing, photographing, promoting, etc. and it takes away from my 9-5 job and my relationships. It’s all about finding a balance though. I’ve gotten a lot better at juggling.
What has been your most fun blog post to write?
My favorite post to write was My First Race (http://www.thecookiebattle.com/2011/01/my-first-race.html) just because it was a moment I was proud of and a great memory. It also kickstarted this lovely little habit I call running
Where do you see your blog this time next year?
It’s hard to say where my blog will be next year, because I never would have imagined I would be where I am now with it. Over the next year I hope my blog and my readership will continue to grow and I will evolve as blogger and improve my recipes, my photography, and my content.
Is there anything else about your blogging experience you would like to share?
Blogging has become so much more than just blogging to me. I have made some great friends through my blog and continue to be inspired by this incredible community that I’m proud to be a part of.
