When it came to picking one of the topics that I will be writing about for the website my class and I will be developing, I wanted to write about something that I am pretty passionate about. When it comes to writing for me and probably for most other writers, it’s easier to write about things that they are passionate about.
So, one of my ideas to write about is the local restaurants in Terre Haute. Terre Haute has its fair share of restaurants in town, and most people are well aware of all of the chain restaurants. The sad thing is, most people in the area who are new don’t really have any idea of how good or how many local restaurants there are.
I am very passionate about food, I love the idea of cooking, I’ve even debated taking cooking classes to learn more myself. What I love about Terre Haute the most, is the different varieties of local restaurants that are available. There is no way you can’t find a local restaurant that you like in Terre Haute.
I also love the idea of supporting local businesses. Not only does it help out the businesses owners that are in the area but it can also expand someone’s views on Terre Haute. It can also help new people in the area to get acquainted with the area a little better but also get to know people in the area.

I’m hoping by me doing this article or series, that there will be much more recognition towards the hard work local business owners do to make their community a better place. I want readers to realize that there is so much more to Terre Haute than just chain restaurants. That there are people out there who want to help build the community and want people to try their food and love it too.
