As much as I enjoy Food blogging which entails:
1) Making food
2) photography it
3) then pain painstakingly record every ingredient and typing it out
4) downloading the photos from my camera to my computer
5) editing and resizing them
6) watermarking photos
7) proof reading and finally uploading the recipe to this blog
I also enjoy just typing and rambling without any care for exact results - Example: was it 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon of baking powder in the recipe? (which could mean a huge and terrible flop for whoever makes the recipe- YIKES!)
I love to just sit at my desk and think of things to write- pair it with a pretty picture and press publish.
Then I sit back and hope to see who interacts....
Its funny that when I spend countless hours on a recipe I get 1 or 2 comments - Example: ooh yum or going to try this tonight (which I appreciate any comments - so thank you) but none of the interaction I am really seeking. I did just spend so much time (Hours) on 1 blog post but it rarely gets loads of comments even though I can see in my blog analytics that it is being read (thank you for reading fellow recipe seekers for reading)
But the truth be told - When I am real - you know just being me. I sit down and write about the general stuff or how I feel then its seems that people will comment (yay!)
It is as though they can maybe identify with my online random thoughts - and that makes writing this blog all the worth while. Who wants to publish content week after week and have it feel flat as if the world around is buzzing by without a thought? I don't.
So with that I say: write as if you are a rambling silly person - the world will thank you with comments ;) (I hope)
Blogging is meant to be enjoyed - right?
- If you are a blogger: Do like comments or doesn't it matter to you?
- If you are a recipe reader: Does it bother you when non food related posts go up on this blog?
