30 Day Blog Challenge – Day 1: Explaining my 30 Day Blog Challenge

This blog has been terribly neglected by me…. I’ve been in an extreme blogging rut and decided it’s time for me to do something about it, I need to challenge myself! I’ve seen this ’30-Day Blog Challenge’ a couple of times and thought this would be a great way for me to motivate myself to get back to blogging on a regular basis. However this challenge consists only of ‘personal’ questions and although I don’t mind talking about me on my blog, this is mostly a foodblog so I decided to look further and found a 30 Day Food Blog Challenge which still is personal as it’s about the preferences of food that one has, but it’s also about food. I shared my idea on Twitter, to which Margaret & Kayte replied that it might be fun if I wrote about the history of different foods or featured something particularly Dutch. This sounded like lots of fun, so I decided to pick my 15 favorite questions of the 30 Day Food Blog Challenge and add 15 questions about Dutch food and habits.

    Oh, I just read the whole list and I am very excited for August to begin!! It all sounds really great, seriously. I did note that the Alcoholic drink comes quickly in the lineup and before the non-alcoholic drink: Let the party begin!! Great idea to post like this…it is so good for our brains to write something every day.
