I thought it would be fun to interview fellow bloggers who have followed their dreams and started Entrepreneurial ventures one such blogger is the sweet Brian from A Thought for Food, a great Boston based blog with amazing photography. I meet him through twitter and was impressed with his business idea and wish him all the success in the World.
I have started to offer social media coaching and handling social media for folks after what I have learned from blogging and have an iphone recipe app. The sweet Megan from Kitsch in the Kitchen who started a business selling wonderful aprons on etsy often custom made, I have a Paris inspired one. Also Kim from the The Ungourmet has started a cupcake academy business teaching kids to bake in their homes :-) I simply adore folks who follow their hearts and have the guts to start a business. Stay tuned for an interview with more folks and if you would like to be featured drop me a line :-)
1. How long have you been blogging and what prompted you to start?
A Thought For Food came about in the Spring of 2009. It started because I had a number of family members and friends who would ask me for recipes. And what began as a kind of public forum to share my favorite dishes quickly grew into something entirely different. I saw from my readers that everyone had a deep connection to food and to the cooking process. That's what I love about writing about food... that I not only get to share my own experiences, but I get to hear stories from my readers about how they relate to each recipe.
2. Tell us a little about yourself, where your from, work, anything you would like to share...
I grew up in New Jersey, but I now live in Boston with my husband and our dog, Maki. I work in the office of a catering company, but my primary task is to work with customers to develop menus for their events.
I decided at the beginning of this year that I wanted to promote my photography work. Eventually I would love to do food photography full time, but it's a slow process. I've been focusing my time at building relationships with different institutions, and I've enjoyed it immensely.
