Original: Seoul Eats/ Blogger Version

Thank you so much for reading Seoul Eats

This is a publicity post for Seoul Eats. This blog started 5 years ago, but it has exclusively been a food blog for around 2 years. 2 years ago I moved to Itaewon to an apartment with an oven and started to cook and write about food. Since then this blog has gained tremendous amount of attention such as the New York Times, Gourmet Magazine, Serious Eats, Bizarre Foods, and many many more. Back in February I decided to see what if I could live off my work with food and I have. It has been a tumultuous couple of months, but I feel that there really is a future in food. I would like to thank all my readers. On average there are about 1,500 page views a day. It is all of you that make me keep going. There are big plans in the works that I will reveal soon. Thanks again.

And one more thing. A special thanks to Matt Kelly of KBS radio. Last week I went in for an interview. You can see the video of it here.
Thank so much for the blurb.^^

When Dan Gray moved to Korea some five years ago, he didn’t know that he would soon become the nation’s top English-language food blogger. Dan is the founder and foodie-in-chief of the Korea food blog, SeoulEats.com. On this week’s interview, Dan and I will talk about what it was like living in Gyeongju, his favorite Korean dish, and the international potential of Korean cuisine.

Matt has an amazing blog about Korea called Discovering Korea. You should check it out here

    I feel like kinda silly saying that but knowing some and meeting you thru some of your food activities, i really wish you a lot of good luck and lots of creative thinking. And don't forget to think, act and write out of the kitchen (especially if it's out of the box…)

    Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition. I just want to know one thing – how are you making money on your blog / content?

  3. Daniel Gray says:

    Yossi. thanks.
    Chris- there are several different ways. First of all, I have advertisers. Second, people ask me to do freelance research, photography, and writing projects through what they find on the blog. Third, text link ads. Fourth, I do PR and marketing through several different agencies using my blog. Fifth, I get donations. Overall, it's not a lot of money, but it has paid for rent and part of my living expenses. I was planning on taking the year off and just study Korean, so I wasn't planning on working anyway. So instead of having to tap deeply into my savings, I've been able to do the work I love.

    I believe there is potential in doing work through the Internet and it is something I am considering. But in February my year off will be up and I will probably rejoin the workforce.

    Thanks for commenting.
