2. 3 photography tips & kitchen tips Photography Tips:
• Take photos in good natural light(Sun Light) • Make out a plain background with a plain cloth or mat, so that ur dish will have good look.. • Edit your photos using a good software, when adding text with photo choose a contrast combination.. if the background is light blue or pink or white, choose the text color as maroon or Dark blue..
Kitchen Tips:
• Grate the coconuts and store them in freezer, when you want to prepare coconut milk with the frozen coconuts, soak them in warm for 5 mins and grind in a mixer squeeze out the coconut milk.. • I usually Peel Pearl onion, garlic and store it in a airtight container and refrigerate them, in the same way i remove the head cap of the green chili and store them in a air tight containers this make the green chili to be fresh for more than 10 days.. • For cleaning kitchen i use warm water, so that the strains and oily dirt comes out easily, for whipping the kitchen counter i use some soft cotton cloths which are old and unused, so that washing the cloths are easy..
3.How to develop blog n blog page to get more fans n views
Write a good reaching content, maintain a good relationship with other bloggers, improve your network.. this is not the matter, how many bloggers/friends you know, how many bloggers/Friends know you is the important thing, feel free to talk, be ready to help.. 4 How blog changed ur life& how many posts ur doing in a month
