It was brought to my attention the other day by my friend Ashley that compared to this blog that it seems I neglect my food blog. Well yes and no...I don't completely neglect it. I usually get a post up at least once a week..or every two weeks? So what is the reason for that? Well #1 it takes more effort. I can't just sit down and write a recipe. I have to test it first and include photos. I hate when recipes don't have a photo of the finished product. ( I am aware that I posted a cookie recipe without a photo the other day ). #2 You get less bank for your buck. In other words - I don't exactly have a following. I might have spent hours in the kitchen and shooting photos of a salad while my bread is in the oven and my pasta is over cooking on the stove only to find out that the lighting makes my food look like a Sizzler salad bar menu. ( Sizzler seriously needs to hire a new food photographer...or perhaps their food is really just that horrible. )
So after finally cooking my whole meal frantically trying to do a million things at once and also remembering to snap photos...get them uploaded to my computer, then post the recipes, the directions and etc. onto my blog... I don't usually get a comment. I still post anyways but it is a lot of work and I am kind of like a Dog. I need praise and encouragement...maybe even a treat?
I guess my hope one day is that someone just might try one of the recipes on my blog and give me a review. Whether it be good or bad, just to know someone tried your recipe would be awesome. Gosh I am such a sad, and pathetic being to beg for comments and reviews.
I am kind of brainstorming on some ideas for my food blog/ future youtube cooking show. I recently did a few "how to" videos involving cooking and thought it was pretty fun. I am not sure I would shoot it in the same format or not.
What do you guys think?
Oh and of course it would be all vegetarian :) Sorry carnivores.
