Some of you have read my musings on the subject before, so feel free to zap this post. Or at least bear with me. Or even better, leave a comment because if you've made it this far, you're one of the people I would most like to hear from.
A few facts:
1. I love to cook. I love to eat. But life is very busy and although I do find time to eat, I don't always find time for cooking -- especially cooking of the bloggable variety.
2. I never really feel up to snuff with Cuisine Quotidienne. Food blogging appears to be a particular variety of the blogging genre -- a lot of unspoken rules: plenty of bloggers who seem to have nothing else to do in life but keep up their food blog; a discouraging number of incredibly gifted food photographers.
3. Sometimes the food blog world feels a bit pretentious to me, like what people are writing isn't really coming from the heart. Yet I find myself playing the game, too.
4. Here's the kicker: despite my worst efforts, clicks on Cuisine Quotidienne have tripled since June 2007! So I feel like someone's out there and I should be reaching out to that audience. But I don't really know who it is, because I don't spend hours poring over my stats. I prefer to get at least SOME form of dinner on the table.
5. To sum it all up: as I write, I'm torn between putting the whole blog on a break or trying to go whole-hog, and possibly commercial (on CQ only -- NEVER on my other two babies.)
Any thoughts on the matter?
