I’m switching things up a bit today and sharing some things that have been on my mind. I’m often asked what made me want to start blogging. So, I thought I would share with you why I started this little blog and my thoughts behind it, so here goes.
I’m not a professional food blogger who whips up gourmet cuisine. I’m also not a famous fashion blogger known for stylish posts and stunning photos. Nor am I a journalist, writing magazine-worthy columns. I’m just someone who enjoys sharing my love of food through simple recipes; fashion, through curated lists of pretty things I discover; décor, through inspiration and acquisitions; and last but not least, travels, whether it’s thousands of miles away or to a restaurant down the road. I’m someone who loves to learn about new things, and I hope that I can share something new with you. I started this blog because I enjoy sharing life’s simple pleasures. Experiencing life with those who matter most and documenting it for personal remembrance, while connecting with others in the blogging world, is my goal.
I spent weeks trying to come up with a name for my blog and narrow down exactly what the one thing was that I wanted to focus on. I soon realized that every post wasn’t going to be just about food or just about fashion. I didn’t want to limit myself to just one topic, but instead set the stage for a wide array of interests. A Polished Palate was created to share my experiences on living a tasteful life, not just through food, but life in general. So thank you to my new readers for following along, and to those who have been there from the beginning. I look forward to continuing the journey!
