EC: Tell us something about yourself
Priya : I recently celebrated my first blog anniversary and really very glad for it..I have been always attracted towards this blogsphere but i took really a long time to enter to blog world coz i was thinking that it will be really very hard to rest and post dishes..I can definitely say that if cooking is our passion anything is possible in this blogsphere which pulled me to go for a year and almost 700 recipes...
I have a handicraft blog, which is my other passion..I love knitting, embroidery, tailoring and many more interesting crafts works..Am trying to post few of my crafts in my craft's blog as my food blog takes most of my leisure time..Have a visit to my craft blog and here is the link....
Am a part time working woman and i spend my rest of the day with my family..my part time job helps a lot to manage my day, family and my passions..Earlier i was posting my recipes in an another blog, but few of my friends pulled me to start a blog and i started this blog to put all my posts together, its was just a pass time before but now am an addict to this blogworld..
I dont cook specially for the blog, but i plan to participate most of the events going through the blog with the ingredients presents in my pantry..sometimes i wont even plan, fortunately some dishes i have prepared fits fabulously to the event..I spend my free time in blogging and visiting many other blogger friend's blog to enjoy the virtual treats and leaving comments ,my one more pass time..
EC: Who encouraged you and what was your idea behind this food blog ??
Priya: Some of my friends encouraged me to start a food blog and Ramya of Ramya's Kitchen Corner was the one who helped me a lot and cleared my doubts..When i talked about starting food blog to my husband, he encouraged me a lot..now he is my first and best critic ..
EC: Although your blog is just a little more than a year old, you have crossed 700 recipes..that is almost 2 recipes each day on an average..How do you manage to have the energy and enthusiasm to cook so much ??
Priya : To say frankly, am posting wat i prepared for our lunch and dinner, i do cook sometimes two or three dishes in a day..sometimes i used to plan before preparing my dishes regarding the events going through the blogsphere, thats the secret of my 700recipes..
EC: Have you ever faced plagiarism. Any tips to deal with it
Priya: Its happened once, but after leaving few messages and reported to google, they have completely removed that site..Its completely ridiculous and i dunno how people enjoy doing this shameful act..Hope those peoples will respect the hardwork and efforts we put on our space..Watermarking our pictures was the best and better way to stop plagiarism, eventhough some peoples are still stealing our hard works..
