By popular demand I’ve finally decided to write more about my local area including my home town of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast area.
I’ve been travel blogging and living in Noosa for five years and during that time I’ve resisted writing about my local neighborhood because I wanted my blog to have global appeal. I still do but I hope, since Noosa is one of Australia’s most well known beach resorts, that even if I cover Noosa regularly it will still be if interest to readers worldwide who’d like to visit one day.
In fact articles about Noosa should be more interesting because I know it so well and will be able to cover it in detail, bring the area to life and include inside travel tips only a local would know.
Other than this tighter focus on Noosa most of the content here will still be personal stories, travel inspiration and travel tips.
I’m simply going to cover things to do in Noosa more including places to visit and eating out because Noosa is a foodie haven and everyone loves food.
A note to Noosa’s restaurateurs:
I don’t fancy myself as a food critic and I am concerned about possible backlash if I write negative reviews about somewhere because I’m part of the community and I fear criticism too.
But I want to practice my food writing skills so I’m going to be brave and write what I think. After all, I’m entitled to my opinion and, if business owners don’t like what I write, then we will both have to learn to let go.
I think it’s important, when possible, to include some criticism or suggested improvements in any article about a meal because otherwise it would be pretty dull. So I hope if your restaurant gets reviewed you’ll be understanding about that.
It’s certainly not my intention to hurt any businesses and the opposite is true. By choosing to feature bars, cafes or restaurants here I am of course doing them a favor by shining a spotlight on them and hopefully sending more people their way.
If I have a bad experience I believe my readers are smart enough to know that it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a bad place. But I’m hoping that won’t happen and looking forward to this new direction.
