Hi, my name is Dunni Obata. Welcome to my other passion, writing. So, here’s my history. I am already a seasoned blogger, or at least I hope I am. I created Dooney’s Kitchen to showcase my love for food and share my recipes. Almost immediately, I realised I enjoyed writing just as much as I loved cooking. It was a skill I never had to use before, well if you consider writing thousands of words for the projects of my degrees, writing. I have 3 by the way. Hahahahaha. That should have been the cue that I enjoyed writing. Anyways, it was truly a pleasant surprise to read feedback from my readers saying they loved my stories and my writing skills were described as captivating. So, I thought, what’s the best way to harness this skill than to dedicate another site strictly for writing, but this time, I didn’t want to do it alone. I have read some pretty spectacular comments on blogs, some to address the subject matter of the post, others and most times, people sharing their personal stories and how they relate to the topic of the post, and i thought wow, it isn’t just me that has a story to tell, thousands of people do too and they’ve been doing it for years on blogs via the comment section. So, I decided to transfer that experience to a site where I can give a voice to anyone who feels they have something to share with the world. The fabric of our humanity is in the connections that we make, and the internet has brought that to bear more strongly in today’s times.
Writers tend to love to read, duh!!!! So, I will be setting up a book club. Once a month, we can select a book and discuss it. There will also the Shop section where you can buy books from the site using affiliate codes or any home and lifestyle items that may come in handy. All income generated will be pulled back into the site. This site also has a forum, where you can raise topics or contribute to topics.
