Whew, that was fast! One year since I posted my Hello to the world?! C’est impossible! Blogging has become my new favorite hobby, and has all but displaced my attempts to keep up with those desperate housewives, support singing idols, and organize a scrap-booking room in my house. S’alright, though – this is so much fun!
AND educational. Through blogging, I’ve learned many important life lessons…
For instance, never post a picture of delicious-looking food without including some kind of instructions for how to make said food. People who visit food blogs don’t like that. It makes them feel dirty, like they’re voyeurs looking at food porn. A recipe validates their visit
Case en Pointe:
In addition, it is considered improper to use someone’s photo without giving them proper credit. People REALLY don’t like it when you steal their photos. I will never, ever forget to give props again. [cross-my-heart-hope-to-die-stick-a-needle-in-my-eye]
And, when writing your next post and your husband asks, “How long do you think that’ll take?” — automatically add 45 minutes to whatever your instincts tell you. Because it ALWAYS. TAKES. LONGER.
Finally, just because no one is fawning over you after each and every post or leaving lavishly complimentary comments, that does not mean they are not reading it. Because they are. You will hear it only when you need to hear it, and often from the most unlikely source. Enjoy the journey and the destination is less important
That’s enough pearls of wisdom from me. Now I want to hear from YOU! Whether you are a first-time reader, an avid follower, or somewhere in between, I would love to know what you think has been the top post in the past 365 days.
Here are 5 of the most popular posts, according to my trusty statistics (either by number of hits or number of comments) . Check them out and let me know which you think deserves top honors simply by leaving a comment with the title of your pick. This will help me in figuring out whether it’s the stories or the food folks want the most. Thanks in advance for your input!
THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT AND FEEDBACK! LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER WONDERFUL YEAR FOR JUGGLING WITH JULIA!
