When I finally dreamt about it in my sleep, I knew it was time to start doing it. Now that I’m underway, things are feeling pretty darn good. I’ve thought about writing a food blog for about a year now. While everyday I thank my lucky stars that I get to appear on TV, in big glossy magazines, and write for websites that engage millions, much of what I say has to be put through a filter of internal questions. What would the advertisers think? Which words am I allowed to say? What’s appropriate? Also, how much of it can I make about ME?
Now that I’m wearing the hats of publisher, writer, producer, and sales exec (well, maybe down the road), pretty much anything will go. Doesn’t that sound like more fun? Welcome to the Michelle Dudash show. Just kidding, sort of.
It’s not just about me. I’ll talk about new foods I’ve tasted, restaurants where I’ve dined, books I’ve read, kitchen triumphs and tragedies, and anything else that crosses my path by way of food or eating. If you haven’t read my bio yet, know that I lean (okay, push) towards the healthier side of things. But, taste will always be considered first, and health factors second.
My goals for writing in my online diary are to inspire my followers to eat better and put a little more thought into what they put into their mouths each day in a healthful, ecological, and mindful way, despite this crazy world we live in.
You’ll get an inside look at what goes on in my life of food writing, TV appearances, conferences, and recipe testing, sandwiched between chasing my 2 year old daughter around and enjoying a glass of wine with my husband.
I post each day, Monday through Friday, so you won’t miss a beat.
