I like the fact you provide ingredient weights; I’d prefer that you provide them for the liquid ingredients, too, rather than ml. And I also prefer the weights even for small quantities, like the cornstarch. I grumble when I have to pull out measuring spoons. grin

Looks great!  I’d recommend a Facebook page and a Pinterest page to go with it.  That’s where it’s all at and how you can build a quick fan base.  Good luck!

please keep in mind that ml is the same as grams only when it’s water!

Your Pinterest looks great!  The Facebook page is good for meeting other food bloggers…they like to help each other out, so befriend some and they will recommend your page to their fans.  Here I am…I don’t consider myself a blogger, just a “collector” for a small recipe swap site.  We have a few bloggers in there if you’d like to get to know them.  http://pinterest.com/sarahgsim/

Thanks Sarah!  I will look in to Facebook, I already have a personal facebook account but dont really want to use that one. I think I may look in to creating another just for my blog.

Again, thank you!

sorry to pester you again…especially if it’s something you already know…but you don’t need to create a new facebook account.  Under your existing one, click on any other facebook page…in the top right you should see “Create Page.”  There are videos and step by step instructions to help you make one under your blog name.  You will be able to switch your name back and forth to whatever name you want to post comments under…here ya go…found you the link…start here..I’m sure you’ll figure it out!  smile  Have fun!!  I’d like to know when you make it so I can “like” it.  smile

Awesome foodie blog! I also just started a recipe blog but in my language. I am not completely fluent in Vietnamese but wanted to try my best to write a foodie/recipe blog for the Vietnamese online community, plus, it allows me to sharpen my writing skills, which is a good thing! wink If you want to check it out even though it’s in another language, here’s my blog:

Any comments or feedback always appreciated! Thanks!

Very readable but I would get rid of the bold fonds.
