Blogging woes and lunch
Blogging is incredibly rewarding but it can also be discouraging if it seems that no one is reading. My friend Jess, from http://upsanddownes.wordpress.com emailed me yesterday feeling a little bummed out. She’s questioning whether to continue blogging or call it quits due to lack of traffic on her website. Give Jess some lovin’ so she will keep her blog alive.
There are many food blogs out there that are sponsored, and some bloggers actually get paid to keep their site up and running. I hope that one day my blog will go in that direction too. For now, I write for myself and for the readers. I cannot say it enough– receiving comments from readers is one of the best things about blogging. We (I’m speaking on behalf of everyone apparently) feed off of your comments so keep em’ coming. If you’re happy with certain blogs and check them daily (like I do to many), tell your friends to check them out as well. Word of mouth is key to blogging success. Having readers helps boost motivation and drive to keep putting it all out there. With that said, if there is something you’d like to see more or less of, keep that feedback coming too.
Onto food. For lunch I had some quinoa salad sans quinoa. At the bottom of the container lies hummus for added flavor. I also packed a banana.
