Stay tuned

Blogging has been such a beautiful learning experience for me .
It has completely changed my course of thinking and gone much beyond simply recording all that I cook to observing edibles from a whole new perspective .In my quest for fine tuning myself I have met so many lovely people and fortunate enough to connect with some unique and creative human beings  who are in no hurry to bombard web with anything silly enough to call a post but indulge in food blogging in a very soulful way and concentrate on something noteworthy.
Styles are always unique and widely evident in their work.Some speak through their photographs by conveying  a story to the viewer while others play with words ,  topics that one may never imagine to associate with food,  they brilliantly phrase to connect the two. 

How do they establish their mark and leave you always wanting for more ?


How about you,what is your take on food blogs ? Other than recipes is it their speed ,their style,props,... do open your heart on what makes u go back to a blog space over and over .

Do write to me lovely people out there.

  2. You right in what you have spoke about. Food is the utmost connection. Some are good in words, some will receive applause for the stunning pictures whereas others are multi-skilled,know how bring in all the important elements.

  3. Hi Meena, Congrats on your award from sweettooth. It is much deserved. As for your question, my answer would be a mix of everything. I can find that mix in your blog and that is why I am in love with it. Hope it helps.

    btw, I don't know much abt pinit. Can you explain it to me?

    Thanks for always stopping by my site.

    1. Sabee,thanks a lot for ur kind words.I am so glad to hear that u like my space.
      About pin it,It is just like any other social media ,catering to images alone. First u need to make a Pinterest account ,then create boards(that is creating categories or albums).Then u can upload ur pics to these albums by going to (top right )add button.U could also repin pics from others album to urs.
      If u r looking for how to add pin it button to ur blog then go to Pinterest make an account then to goodies in that to widgets-make a code,copy paste in ur blog gadget.I took a long time to figure out this.So if u have issues mail me at elephantsncoconuttrees(at)gmail(dot)com.

  6. I love Food Blogs that don't mimick others. The ones that have their own voice are usually the most interesting, both in what they produce recipewise and in their choice of presentation - whether it's their use of words or images. I believe that if a blogger (food or otherwise), remains true to themselves, and does not attempt to *fit in*, that they stand out from the crowd. That's what draws me back, as much as the food itself.

  7. U are a wonderful blogger yourself ! I have been inspired by u a lot, ur pics, the way u keep in touch and the way u tell stories :). I guess it's everything, pics, the writing, being in touch with fellow bloggers and maintaining friendship. I am new in blogging, and wat amazed me is the time and effort ppl take to appreciate each other selflessly ! that really matters I guess !
