Hello, I am new to blogging too and checked out your site. I like your site, the colors are great, the pineapple is cute, your photographs are great, and I am a photographer, so that kind of stuff matters to me. It seems to me that your content is about food mostly, and that may be the hardest thing to get into on a blogging platform. I feel like there are soooo many food blogs out there, and finding that perfect place in that world will be hard. I wouldn't change anything about your site, your content, truly. I think that blogging is like, life, you have to be at the right place at the right time and that perfect storm of people have to find you and then your golden.
