Derbyshire Food Blog, The Sticky Beak Blog celebrates its second birthday this week with a trip back to where it all began, Blueys Aussie Steakhouse in Alfreton.
The blog was started in June 2013 by Angie & Paul after a night out at Blueys
“We enjoyed our meal so much we wanted tell other people in the area about it” said Angie
“Paul was already running the Amber Valley Info web site and he felt this would be a great feature to bring additional visitors to the site”
In 2014 the blog was doing so well it was moved to its own web site where it has continued to grow in popularity. The blog has reviewed around 50 restaurants, cafes and takeaways and has had over 12000 review reads to date with 1800 of those reads in the last month.
“We felt there was too much misuse of negative reviews online and our food blogger ‘Sticky Beak’ (Angie) decided to only write positive reviews – If she visits somewhere and doesn’t enjoy the experience then she just doesn’t write about it and they’ll never know she has been” said Paul
“Those that she does write about get awarded the ‘Hot Wings’ award and they can display this in their restaurant or add a badge to their web site. We have had the logo and branding produced by Rachel of Greenmouse Design in Ripley and are really pleased with the result”
As well as reviews, the web site includes menus, recipes and a mailing list for discounts and special offers exclusive to Sticky Beak followers.
“I’m having so much fun visiting all these new places to eat as well as a few old favourites” said Angie “If you would like me to pay your venue a visit or you can recommend somewhere to visit then let me know”
