Today I would like to introduce you to our latest featured client, Emma. I recently had the pleasure of working with the lovely Emma of Coconut and Berries on a new blog design! I love the simplicity of the finished design, and how although simplistic, there’s still a hint of fun!
Can you tell us a little about your blog?
Coconut and Berries is my space on the web to share my foodie adventures! I mostly write about my own healthy, vegan recipe creations, but good restaurant and product discoveries are thrown in there too.
How long have you been blogging?
I’ve only been blogging since the summer of last year (2013), so a little over 6 months, but enjoy it more and more every day. I’ve been amazed at how much my readership has grown in that short period and that’s what prompted me to change up my blog design. I wanted Coconut and Berries to be a nicer place to spend time- both for me and my readers!
What inspired you to start your blog?
While at university I developed a passion for cooking and whenever I wasn’t studying I was playing in the kitchen! I was often only cooking for one but would get so excited about my food and coming up with new dishes that I wanted to be able to share it with others. It turned out there was a huge community of like-minded people on the web and blogging proved a great way to connect.
What do you like to do when you aren’t blogging?
When I’m not blogging or creating new recipes I’m studying for my M.A. in Translation, or crafting-I love to knit and crochet!
Anything else you want people to know about your blog?
I like to think there’s something for everyone on Coconut and Berries. Though many of my readers are already eating a whole foods, plant-based diet, many are just dipping their toes into the water or are simply looking for new ideas to change up their weekly menus.
Any tips for anyone who wants to start blogging?
Be passionate about your subject! If you’re enthusiastic about your subject you’ll want to keep writing and learning as much as you can about it . Consistency is important with blogging and you’re more likely to post regularly if you enjoy it. Don’t overdo it though. There’s only so much people have time to read in one week and you’ll just burn out if you’re posting too often.
