Every blogger made the decision to start their blog. What we wanted to know was how they decided what would be their first post – and to reflect on something that has been hidden in their archives ever since. Sharking for Chips & Drinks are running the feature ‘Back to the Start’ over the next few weeks where we will introduce you to bloggers from Melbourne, Australia and much further afield. These are all great bloggers so I suggest you subscribe to their blog and follow them on Twitter.
I hadn’t planned to start a blog. I had dreamed to write a book. A book reviewing Melbourne’s restaurants for vegetarians. Publications like the Age Good Food Guide put a star next to restaurants that have vegetarian options – I wanted reviews that commented on the quality of the food, not just whether it existed. In the end I chose blogging because it was timely and easier.
My first post was of Maya Tequila Bar and Grill. There was no particular reason for me to choose here. I didn’t even take photos! I just wrote a few comments on the food and wine. For me blogging has always been more about writing than the photography.
I have loved every minute. Not only do I get great feedback from my vegetarian readers, but on a personal level blogging forces me to appreciate my food even more, plus I now have a full site diarising all my wonderful eating experiences.
My First Post

The overall experience was casual and relaxing, nice for a mid-week dinner and possibly for cocktails and a snack later on.
