Question about Food blog and recipes!
Friends, I have a question for you regarding my recipes and my food blog.
Essentially, I began my food blog as a way for me to keep recipes on file, to see what we were eating and to have a place to go back and revisit what we ate. Obviously, I like sharing too and it's a great way to share those meals that we have loved with others.
Thing is, when I started my food blog in 2006, there weren't many around, but as the years have gone by, there have been more and more, seems that everyone has one, and it's a competition to see who can produce the best recipes, and the more giveaways, and get the ultimate pinterest pins etc.
I don't like that, I'm not interested in that kind of atmosphere and because I've never fallen into that like so many others, I have lost readers, and not just readers, but I really don't ever get a single comment on any recipe, if I do, it's very rarely.
So, this is what I was thinking of doing, and hence why I'm coming in to ask what you guys think.
I will keep my Full Bellies blog up, but will disable all comments. I will still post recipes on there, but will be posting them on this blog too, mainly posting here first and then a copy on the food blog. I just feel that the recipes reach a far bigger audience here and a lot of times it seems that many of you miss out on what is being posted because you mainly read my main blog.
I don't want to overcrowd this blog, I certainly don't want to make it messy, but it's not like I share recipes every day either, so it wouldn't be a very big change in the posting habits here either.
I know that the final decision is mine, but I really would love your input, your thoughts, please?
