For week #34, I was on fire. Without social media, I was able to focus more on my blog.
With more time, I was able to publish 4 new recipes to my blog. That’s a record for sure and def the rate I want to produce. I’d like to get to a point where I can consistently post content at least 3 times a week or 12 per month. By doing that, it should speed up my page’s growth and search rankings. I’m going to aim for around 50 recipes and then I’d like to do a content audit. From there I can decide what to do with some of those recipes.
This week I discovered how fast I could work and also refined my workflow. I’m designating days to develop my recipes, shooting photos, and writing up content. Each post can be broken down that way.
Food Photography: I’m committed
When you invest into things with your own money, that’s when you know you’re committed.
Mind you, I’m not great but I am learning. This week, I took it upon myself to exercise some of the basics. I purchased some more photography equipment: Reflector, Softbox, Props. This is a milestone because it basically means I’m now committed. If you go to my apartment, it looks like a photo studio.
I also quickly realized I need to change things up a little as I was using too much of the same sky blue backdrop. I went to the home improvement store and in the process of making 2 new backdrops. They’re pretty easy but the most time-consuming part is waiting for the paint to dry. I’ll enclose photos for next week.
That’s pretty much it for the week. I’d like to keep this up. Every day it’s felt like a roller coasting as I watch my confidence go up and down. I want to see results faster and I’m putting in the work. Let’s see what happens for Week #35.
