I have an idea. You know how I get ideas? They usually start on a run and then they take off from there. This might be a good one, but I have some questions for YOU, please and thank you!
My brother Chris is one of my greatest encouragers, and he often suggests that I could maybe do something a bit bigger with this blogging thing. Today we bounced around the idea of me starting a separate blog and trying to get sponsorship for it. Here's my basic angle: raising healthy kids/ healthy kids' food/ instilling healthy habits in children/ involving kids in cooking and choosing healthy foods and exercising. That's pretty rough, huh? And unfortunately/fortunately there are already a bunch of blogs out there on this very topic. But if I could incorporate the Maine thing somehow, trips to pick up the farmshare, snacks for mountain hikes, picnics on the beach, I may be able to make it unique enough to gain an audience.
What do you think?
Do you think I can do such a thing without being a dietician or knowing any science behind nutrition?
Would you read a kids' food blog written by someone who is not an expert?
Is it okay to have an I'm-no-expert-but-here's-what-I-try-to-do kind of an angle?
Is it okay that my kids are picky eaters (getting better, but still picky)?
And if your answers to the above questions are YES, then, most importantly, what do I call the new blog?
And when can I quit my day job? (SO TOTALLY KIDDING!)
I will research a bit about how food blogs get started, and who knows what will come of this, but I thought I'd start with you. Can you help?
