Meet My "BIG" Aleshea From Glitz & Grits
Heeeyy everyone! So I recently signed up to be apart of the Bigs & Littles group which is put together for bigger bloggers to help out smaller bloggers with any questions or issues they may have with..blogging. And of course I wanted to introduce you to my new "BIG" and Texan Aleshea from Glitz & Grits.
Why did you start blogging? And how did you come up with your blog name?
A few years back I found a food blog via Pinterest. I remember reading and thinking I can do this. All she post is mostly salads and has like 50,000 followers. That is when the idea started. For a while I was only reading Tumblr blogs. I got together with Bestfran Numero Uno and was like lets start a food blog. We both really love to cook. Me more so than her. We were going to post all our favorite Southern/Texas recipes as well as tips for people. After about a year we became stuck and fizzled out. I was more interested in posting and she became to busy. I started to realize Tumblr, as great as it is, wasn't really the platform I needed. I love to write and it's hard to get people to read/follow when you're not just posting gifts. Would you believe people started following after I stopped posting on Tumblr. When I moved I was still mostly posting recipes. After a few months I started to find out about Lifestyle blogs and I haven't looked back. Besides I don't know if y'all know this but it's hard work being such a niche blogger. Buying food/taking pics/ writing the steps becomes a lot when your doing it three plus times a week. That and my fam would always complain dinner was cold because I would take so long plating and picture taking. Next month will mark one year blogging.
