What’s the best plan for my blog?

Can some one please help lead my to the best plan for my blog?

I have had this account for almost 2 years now, with out much use for it or should I say “been to busy to sit down to share a good receipt “.  Well I am back with a pleather of choice cuisines from around the world with easy follow instructions and photos.

I have learned a lot about different cultures and the foods they eat throughout my culinary journey’s and endeavors.  I am not the best blogger or story writer – but like wine I hope to get better with time and help from my readers. My aim is to be the most improved blogger for 2017!!!!! Good readings
