Irish Food Bloggers Get Tips from the Best in the Business

Last Friday I spent the day among some of Ireland's top Food Bloggers. It was a day organised by Board Bia and we got the opportunity to take in tips on writing recipes, setting up our shots and photographing our food. With lots of great ideas on how to attract more traffic to our blogs. The chefs at Board Bia provided us with a delicious lunch and each blogger brought some home baked treats to enjoy at the tea break.
Since commencing food blogging, early last year, I have been lucky enough to attend a few events and  each time I meet some more lovely foodies for the first time. It is so wonderful to meet up with others that have a shared passion for all things food and this was another chance to have a  good old chin wag!
