Please tell us when you started your blog, what inspired you to start blogging & anything about your blog you want to share.
I started my blog in September 2016, I quit my job then and wanted to do something I love and I realized that food and travel were a major part of my life that I enjoyed. I’m also a very critical as a person and always strive for improvement, so I mind mapped everything and came up with the idea of a review website related to food and travel. I came up with a lot of names but at the end went with my first thought that’s panda reviews, but the domain wasn’t available so I went with a z instead and hitted PandaReviewz.com
Do you have any tips for our readers that want to start blogging?
It is not an easy task, looks easy but there is a lot of hard work that goes in the background of each post. So make sure you absolutely want to take up blogging before heading into it and Good luck.
