Why I write…….

For those of you not aware, there is a little Blog Hop going on at the moment over at Always Josefa and I have been lucky enough to be nominated to take part by the gorgeous Lauren from Create Bake Make. Lauren has a love for baking and creating just like me, she also writes beautifully about her life experiences. I recommend taking a peek around her Blog, you won’t be disappointed.

Now to get on with the little hop……..

Where I write

Why I write

Writing is something I never imagined myself doing until 12 months ago when a lovely lady I know by the name of Jewel suggested that perhaps I should start a Blog. Let me say 12 months ago I didn’t have much of an idea of what a Blog even was…….? Jewel gave me a little insight mentioning the likes of Martha Stewart and Mamamia. The picture became a little clearer. You see, like lots of Mums, I get great joy out of making my children’s birthday cakes as well as baking lots of other yummy treats for everyone in my life to enjoy.  I love a good chat, a cup of tea, and I love sharing……. probably to the point where I am an oversharer at times (I can’t help myself). Taking all these things into account along with Jewels encouragement, the idea of having my own Blog became very appealing and as they say ‘the rest is history!’ I am certainly no Martha Stewart or Mamamia (one can dream!), but I am Dannielle from Zamamabakes and I hope you enjoy your time with me when you visit my little piece of Cyber Space.

The whole blogging experience has been and is continuing to be a very fulfilling education and experience. I have never been known for my tech savvy ways but that is slowly improving with perseverance. I think my husband discretely cringes every time I ask him a question regarding something I can’t get the computer to do, thanks in advance for the next 10 questions Zadada!!

I know I will never write the way a journalist can (I’ve always been a numbers kind of girl). My words don’t flow as naturally as some but I try to be myself, make my words happy, enjoyable and entertaining (in my waffle kind of way). To me that’s what blogging is all about, sharing the love, in my case lots of baking mixed with a side of life’s experiences.

So to sum things up, if I bumped into someone I knew and they asked me the question ‘Dannielle why do you write?’, my response with some waffle in between would be:

1. I love giving. ( I feel I can do that through my Blog)

2. I love seeing people smiling and happy. (I like to think that in each one of my Blog posts I write there is always something to make my readers smile)

3. I love that this whole blogging adventure is taking me in a direction that makes me feel driven, it’s enabling me to learn more about cooking, baking, the never ending world of technology and it is creating friendships I never would have imagined.

That’s pretty much the gist of it!

What am I working on?

My quality. I have recently enrolled myself to do a beginners blogging course, while its all well and good to be able to bake, create and babble I believe I need to be better armed to enable myself to keep improving the quality of what I give my readers.

I would love to one day put together a Zamamabakes recipe book & perhaps some kind of  Family friendly homemaker App but for now I want to concentrate on polishing all my blogging edges, I need to walk a bit before I start running!

How does my writing differ from others in my genre?

I don’t have any special writing talents. I like to think just being myself is my difference.

Why do I write about what I do?

Discovering, eating and creating good food along with experiencing life’s positive adventures light my soul up in a way that makes me feel the need to share.

Cooking in the kitchen

How does my writing process work?

It’s a bit of an evolving plan in progress. Initially there were lots of here there and everywhere grab what you can kind of moments (sound familiar?), but now almost 1 year down the track I think I’m finally starting to find a bit of rhythm.

Most of my writing takes place of an evening once the kidlets are in bed. Planning in advance is definitely the key.

The cooking and photography process which feeds most of my writing, generally takes place during our threenagers nap time or on weekends when I have my supportive husband around, thanks again Zadada! I don’t get too many complaints unless I’m photographing his dinner and taking too long to do so!

Who is next?

I’ve asked 2 gorgeous bloggers to come and join this lovely little Blog Hop.

Why I write girls

 

Lydia from Always Made with Love refers to herself as a hopeless romantic & lover of all things girly. Lydia shares her experiences of family, food and life. Just quietly I can’t wait to try her Raspberry and White Chocolate Shortbread.

Ellie from Petalplum  writes about her daily life, documents creative projects & chats about her children. Ellie and her husband also have an online shop ‘Deadwood Creative’ you can visit it here.

There you have it lovely ones.

Until the next time……

  1. I think your writing is honest, and your caring, sharing nature shines through in everything you write. I enjoy seeing an email in my inbox from your blog because I know that for the next few minutes I will be smiling, learning and sharing something special. Keep it up, you are doing a great job – oh and the cooking thing is pretty good too!!!!

      Oh you just made me get a tear in my eye and a big smile on my face Tracy. I would love to be a fly on the wall when people read my posts just to see them smile (I’d have tears in my eyes all the time then!). Thanks for your kind words. Glad you think the cooking bit is ok too! Here’s to many more smiles! xx
