I finally decided to have a food blog. No frills, no fussing over design, no trying to be clever: just a place to keep links to online recipes that I’m trying out and have liked (I’m fed up of thinking, now where was that great recipe…?), and to put down some of the favourites in my notebooks and recipe books. And it won’t be a food diary exactly, but I might comment on successes and disasters sometimes. And stuff like that.
(Tomorrow night I shall be doing ‘quick’ lemon and olive chicken. I love that recipe.)
PS: Meant to point out that I’m using Blogsome to host it. I’m quite impressed with this outfit – free hosting and as simple to set up as Blogger, but using WordPress so you have pretty much all of its flexibility behind the scenes. Only a couple of downsides I’ve seen so far (well, you have to put up with advertising, but it’s only a small box at the bottom of the sidebar): there’s no FTP facility (so you can’t add your own plugins), and you can upload images but you can’t overwrite or delete them once you’ve uploaded them. But if you’re fed up with Blogger and don’t want to pay for Typepad, and especially if you understand a little about HTML and CSS but don’t feel up to the whole business of getting your own site and installing WP, this seems pretty good.
