Six months and 27 posts. What have I learned so far? I have awesome supportive friends. Traditional comfort foods get the most traffic: my top posts are banana bread and lentil soup. Tastespotting and Food Gawker generate the most traffic, followed by Facebook. Good pictures matter. A lot. But not more than content. Buy a photo book. Use a good camera. Use natural light. Tastespotting and Foodgawker actually give you feedback on why your photo is rejected, which is fucking amazing and generous. Nobody wants to leave a comment. Spammers leave tons of comments. I feel like an imposter. I am a droplet in an ocean of food blogs – not even a full drop – and if I continue to do this I will be doing it for myself, because I can’t keep pimping out my friends. And, I still haven’t figured out if I want to do process shots or arty ingredient arrangements. I just know I like my dark wood table. So, guess I’ll keep doing this until it’s no longer fun.
