I have seen a lot of bloggers lamenting how boring food blogs are.Ã‚Â And I do tend to agree with them.Ã‚Â There are excellents ones like those listed in my blogroll.Ã‚Â Off hand, I like to read local food blogs byÃ‚Â Boo, Babe, Foodcrazee because they have a style of their own. Boo’s excellent way of expressing the food and her helpful informations thrown in is very refreshing. It is almost like reading a food magazine.Ã‚Â Babe’s blog is for its simplicity and joy of a loving mother cooking for her boy-boy.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â As for Foodcrazee, he is a chef and therefore, he wrote about foods that I am not likely to eat!Ã‚Â Like those huge abalones, for eg.

So, what I wanted to say is food blogs don’t have much high paying keywords in Adsense.Ã‚Â Though I do get a few clicks, the keywords are not high paying.Ã‚Â Therefore, if you are thinking of writing a food blog for income, forget it.Ã‚Â It is not worth it.

Writing a food blog takes passion.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Even homecooking can be very interesting like maR’s.Ã‚Â She is a Malaysian staying in UK and it is very nice to see what local dishes she cooks over there.

And one thing that I dislike about those posts ala ‘You know what I ate last night’ is the photos of the messy, empty cutleries, bones and shells everywhere.Ã‚Â Ewwwss…spare me the disgusting picture.
Ahem, I amÃ‚Â merely putting my views across.Ã‚Â No offence to anyone, if they can help it.
