OK, we’re definitely not fans of this new ranking method the #travel1k guys have replaced Klout with; for the week of May 30th we’ve plummeted from #190 waaay down to #358. Ouch! Well, we did only get two posts in since we were off diving in Koh Tao and all, so hopefully we’ll get back on track next week…
I am a retired Chef and Culinary Instructor, now living the dream in Sunny Florida working on my second career as a Food & Travel Blogger, Private Chef, Content Creator and Digital Strategist. Eating my way around the World sharing my adventures & my recipes.
During this new phase of my culinary journey as a Food & Travel Blogger, I’ve amassed an impressive combined following of more than 1.8+ Million on my social channels with more than 150 million views on my Google profile.
Besides my blogging and social media, I have been described as a pioneer in the Live Streaming arena as a participant and speaker.

Technically, BuiltWith tells us it’s the standard WordPress + Jetpack setup, and as always we recommend Dreampress as your best choice for that, free Jetpack Professional and all; and what we’re pretty sure is the most comprehensive set of advertising plugins that we’ve seen on any of these blogs yet, as well as full CloudFlare backing and all, this is definitely a nice piece of work this site is!
So there you go; if you are a chef and/or foodie type, this would be an excellent blog for you to follow indeed…
… if you’re more like us and food pretty much never enters your planning unless it’s something special like Bugs Cafe, not quite so compelling, in fact we were mildly surprised to find we were already a Twitter follower as we don’t recall any tweets from here jumping out at us —
