Aspiring food blogger looking for the right blogging platform for your food blog? Thoughts on why you should consider Cucumbertown, the world’s only food blogging platform, and introducing a new look for My Food Story.
If you are reading this, then I guess you’ve noticed My Food Story’s brand new look. This is something that we’ve been working on for a few months now and it took a lot of sweat, laughter (we don’t do tears very well :)) and late evenings to revamp the entire space. We wanted a fun, fresh, clean and minimalistic look and I think we’ve managed to get what we wanted. And my exciteeeemeeent is over the top. It finally looks like MY space. That cool new logo that you see on top and the whole website has been designed by my sister. Of course, there are tons of other people who’ve contributed and I’m going to talk about all of them.
But before that, I have another announcement to make. Most of you probably don’t know this, and don’t care, but it’s an important step for me. So far, I’ve been hosting my blog on WordPress which is probably the world’s biggest blogging platform. When I was about 4 months old into blogging, I met Cherian from Cucumbertown, the world’s only food blogging platform (Yes, seriously!).
Cherian started telling me more about CT, and our five minute conversation turned into 2 hours. Numerous facebook messages, endless emails and an hour long phone call later, I decided to make a switch from the predictability and comfort of WordPress to the fast evolving Cucumbertown.
I will be lying if I said it was easy or natural. It didn’t come naturally at all. All my favourite bloggers were hosted on WordPress. In fact, the entire food blogging community as I know it is pretty much on WordPress. It was scary, and new and I had doubts.
But I also had faith. I believed in what Cucumbertown wanted to do, what they wanted to be, and I knew we could grow together. While I’m only a 5 day old Cucumbertown-er, I can already feel the shift towards easier, better and a more evolved blogging experience. An unexpected but warm feeling that it was the right step is setting in, and in the end, that’s all that matters.
This evolution means a lot to me, and I’d love it if you could leave a comment and tell me what you think of My Food Story’s new look. In case you are disoriented and can’t figure out how to navigate through the site, please write to me at [email protected] and I’d love to help you out. And if you are an established food blogger, or an aspiring one, you may want to stop by and check out Cucumbertown.
