Food, as a category, was never on my mind when I created Metanoia. It just happened one day, when at a restaurant I went crazy clicking pictures of the lavish spread before me and then wondered how to share them! That’s when I decided to create a separate category just for FOOD.
A place for restaurant reviews, recipes, posts on healthy eating and nutrition on my blog sounded quite exciting. So, I first created an Instagram account dedicated to food – Foodiezms – and then the ‘Food’ tag on my blog.
If you have visited Metanoia earlier, you will know that on the first Tuesday of the month, we -Sunita and I – hosted the #FlavoursomeTuesdays, where we invited bloggers to share foodie tales, memories revolving around food, recipes, restaurant reviews…everything related to food.
We received a good response at our first Linky Party and were encouraged to take it further on our blogs. However, this year, we decided to take a break from flavoursometuesdays. But, it sure was fun doing these food posts!
This is the badge I created for our posts:
Cool, isn’t it?
My interest in food and nutrition developed way back in college when as part of my B.A. curriculum, I chose it as one of the subjects.
So, when the idea of having a category for food came to mind, I decided to make it really special. There would be not just entertaining posts on food, but also informative ones that would help my readers in making changes in their diet that would help them improve their health.
And, Metanoia being a Health & Wellness blog, inspiring others to look after their diet and giving information on food and nutrition seemed like a great idea.
If, as a newbie blogger, you wonder about a niche for your blog, and if you are a foodie, or a cook, then a food blog will be the best thing to do. I know, most of you are well aware of such possibilities, but for those who are clueless (like I was), do give it a thought.
You could share your personal recipes, restaurant reviews, cooking tips and tricks….oh, the list is endless about what you could do with your food blog!
Sharing some of the food blogs I visit for the recipes and also to gaze and drool at the food on display:

Do visit these blogs if you need the inspiration to begin your own food blog. It will be your favourite place after the kitchen!
My theme for the A to Z Blogging Challenge is all about my blog, Metanoia, and my blogging journey from the time I started, 5 years ago. The lessons I learnt, the tips and tricks I picked up from fellow bloggers and the guidelines I could have used back when I began.
