Stephanie is the blogger behind Beyond ExpecTASTEtions.
Describe your blog:
Beyond ExpecTASTEtions is a food and travel blog that features my own unique recipes, reviews of restaurants and food events, travel series, and food-related product and service reviews. I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen and try and share at least one creation every other week!
What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?
I LOVE to travel and write about my experiences while traveling. Every city has it’s own unique “flavor” and I love writing a series of posts about each new place I visit. If it’s possible to explore by walking even better, I truly believe that’s the best way to see a city and discover all the little shops you would have whizzed by in a cab.
What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?
Web design/development. Besides purchasing a domain and a theme I’ve really built my whole site myself and there are so many little things to learn when it comes to back-end web development that I feel like I’m missing. But, I’m really enjoying learning as I go along!
Why did you start blogging?
The joy of writing.
What is your favorite social platform?
I love Twitter, but I’m getting more into Instagram because it really lends itself well to foodie photos!
What are a few of your favorite Chicago blogs?
The Ghost Guest, Everything Erica, Chicago Food Girl, and Chicago Food Magazine.
