I have been thinking of creating a blog/homepage about food and recipes. But would i have any readers if there was made a post once every day or two? Containing a new recipe or new interesting facts about how to acchieve health through food? Personally i believe i know alot about this subject when it comes to good nutrition, and alot of people out there either have the lack of inspiration when it comes to figuring out the dinner and others have issues with obesity based on to much fastfood.

personally I wouldnt as eat everything in moderation is always best. I also prefer to eat out than cook myself he he he, but any subject will get readers so I would say go for it, the only problem is getting traffic and subscibers to your blog but thats the same as any web site

Very true... I do though believe most people can learn to cook, before i moved out from my parents i could only make 3 kinds of dishes; Lasagne, Rice Pudding and Pancakes... Not exactly what sounds like a healthy diet to me... But again this is just a thought that struck my mind today, that it might be a subject that people would like rather than the completly filled out subjects about how to make money online.

I shall certainly remember to tell it to you in case i get it up running, i think i most likely will once im done writing my thesis and have defended it at an exam, then im also more ready for spending and devoting more time towards it, so this will be mid october i think. But hey gives me time to find the best possible recipes.

I always go and check out any recipes that I see on cooking shows especially when I miss the ingredients part, although I would only go for easy to prepare recipes as I am almost completely helpless in the kitchen. I am just learning and would love to check out delicious recipes that are great for the family and easy on the budget.

Oh and people always love to talk and eat so I guess that is a good topic for you to start with, and you seem knowledgeable enough about it, don't waste time thinking about it, go and just do it. Best of luck !

Thank you so much for your comment, as you can see in my comments above i wasnt exactly a skilled cook before i mooved out from home. I have a bunch of good delicious recipies which are fairly easy to make, doesnt cost a fortune and neither takes alot of time. Ofcause all prices vary depending on the country your living in, but i can tell that as of current im a student and try to be both creative, delicous and have it on a decent budget. Which is certainly needed in the times we are living in currently.

I think it would be a big hit in today's world. I say go for it. There seems to be a big desire for people to find healthy, or maybe what you would call heart smart meals today. And they say that anything that you can come up with that would be of interest to the Baby Boomer Generation is going to do well. This idea should most definitely appeal to that generation. Good luck to you with your blog!

Thank you so much for your response. I also believe that there is a growing trend for healthy smart meals, or even regular meals which wont take ages to prepare. I will though first have time for building my blog after i finished my thesis, so right now im gathering a bunch of ideas for it :D

I do check out some websites about food and recipes but usually I just cook what I know how to cook. Now a days there are lots of prebox meals or even frozen meals that make it faster for people to fix a meal for their family. Many families have so many things going on that fixing meals has to be something that is convenient and fast.

That is very true, i have some days too where i end with the precooked meals, where you often only need to boil some pasta or rice to go with it, and then in the microwave with the package. I tend to use those plans when i dont know when ill be home, or if the day in general has been hectic so i need to relax.
