Blogging Over 40 – Interview with Liana Vanwynsberghe
Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog?
I am 50 years old and mother of four and one grandson, 11 months old. I farm together with my husband and our oldest son. I have a large garden together with my daughter-in-law.
I have always loved cooking and baking an trying new recipes, something I learned from my Mother. On my blog I share healthy recipes that are sometimes vegetarian and always gluten free.
Describe how you got into blogging?
About 6 years ago I found out that I have celiac disease and at that time I decided to learn all I could about gluten free baking and cooking. I also made a conscious effort to try new foods to add variety to our diet. I developed a gluten free flour blend and began making all kinds of baked goods.
I found that I was often sharing my recipes with friends and family members who also were giving up gluten and I decided it would be easier if they were online. I love experimenting with recipes to make them healthier and gluten free but still taste great.
I also have many recipes on my blog that people who don’t need to eat gluten free can enjoy such as soups, salads and many others.
How old were you when you started your blog?
I started my blog just over a year ago when I was 49.
What is your blog niche?
Healthy gluten free food
Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
What do you do in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, hiking, reading, and traveling.
Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now?
My youngest child will be off to college in three years and I hope that blogging can be a good pastime for me as the house gets quieter.
In five years if I am still having fun with blogging I will stick with it. In the past year my page views have been steadily increasing and as long as that continues I will be happy.
How much time do you spend blogging?
n the summer I spend about an hour a week in preparing posts and about an hour on social media and promotion. In the winter I hope to do a better job of promotion.
What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?
When I began learning about social media I joined too many sites and blogging groups and it became overwhelming. I have cut back on a few things until I have more time. I have learned that I don’t have to do it all and that I have to keep a balance.
Tell me about your proudest blog achievement?
My proudest achievement was when one of my recipes was shared on Epicurious. At the end of December they do a “recipe of the year ” post and one of my recipes was nominated and there was a link to my blog.
At this point I had only been blogging for about five months and my page views went from 30 a day to 600! After a couple of weeks it died down but it was a very exciting New Years!
