My new food blog!

  1. Hi everyone,

    I've just started a new blog and have had 64 people read it so far - I know it's a small number, but I'm new to blogging and proud :)
    Ayoungfoodie is my blog with various recipes (tending to be sweet) that I have made and throughly recommend.
    If anything has any time to spare and check out my site, I would be very grateful. It would be great too, if you could comment and tell me what you think.

    The blog I need help with is ayoungfoodie.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi foodie,

    I think you're off to a good start! My main suggestion is to really get your pictures of the food as pristine as possible. Also, I don't think it's really necessary to have a watermark as big as yours across the photo. Maybe you could have a smaller one on the corner or something, but as it is it distracts from the photo. Good luck!

  3. Hi foodie! I agree with the comment above - if possible I'd live the watermark out all together (even professional photogs leave it out) cuz it totally distracts the main focus - the food!

    Take a look at this blog: http://www.roostblog.com/ this blog uses its own pics and they are copyrighted and all, but no watermarks, and they are HUGE which is a cool thing to have (love for food come through the eyes!)

    I would also suggest to play around with neutral backgrounds, I find those are the best to showcase food and pretty pictures. I've heard of http://fotoflexer.com/ which is a free site that lets you edit your pics.

    PS your shortbread recipe: yum!

    Hope this helps, cheers!

  4. Thanks both of you guys. I'll make my watermark, smaller and in the corner, and try and sort out some new themes!
