Hai! Ciao! Kia Ora! Nǐ Hǎo!

Welcome to my first post in the world of blogging.  For the last few months I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a blog, but with a dodgy internet connection and not really knowing what I was doing, I never got started (once a procrastinator, always a procrastinator).  A few months ago, and I can’t remember what triggered it, but something made me join Twitter and then before you know it, I had signed up to WordPress and it’s taken me a while to get my head around it, but finally, here’s my first post.

So what will my blog be about?  There’ll be a lot of content on food and in particular baking.  I’d love to be able to blog about eating out, but I don’t really have the guts to pull out a camera/iphone and take a snap of food.  And sometimes I’ll be half way through baking or cooking and I remember to take photos. D’oh!

I also loooove watching telly – in particular reality tv, so I dare say, there will be a few posts about what I’m currently watching.  I have a Foxtel iQ and one of many favourite things to do is to save up about a series of a show (usually 6 eps/weeks) and watch it in one hit – much to the annoyance of Hubby as it means I take up a huge amount of memory on the iQ.  At the moment, I’ve got saved up the 3rd series of Real Housewives of NYC; the last few eps of Secrets of Aspen and the beginnings of the new series of Australia’s Next Top Model (heh heh heh).

The one of the other things I’ll blog about is learning how to use my camera – D3000.  When I was in high school, I did a little bit of  photography as part of one of my science classes and have always been interested in it.  My sister has had a dSLR for a long time and takes some fantastic photos and I’ve always played around with her camera, so I finally decided to buy my own and learn the craft of photography.  Hopefully I have some decent pics to put up on my blog.

Happy Reading 🙂

      Thanks Lorraine! I didn’t realise how popular the world of food blogging was until I came across your blog around this time last year when I Googled Haloween cupcake designs. Your blog came up first and since then I’ve been a regular reader of yours. I had been thinking about blogging for a few months, but didn’t really think I had it in me. Then I read your 10 More Things You Should Know About Food Bloggers and I thought, wow that sounds just like me, only I don’t have an outlet for my thoughts. So after my procrastination, I’ve finally created my own little soap-box to broadcast Me to the world 🙂
