I feel like a change is a’comin’.
I think it’ll be a good one!
Though my background in project management is limited, I know that projects have scopes, and, on occasion, those scopes can change during its course.
My original scope of Seek Satiation – both the blog and my Instagram feed – was to be strictly recipes I created. For the blog, that has been pretty consistent. For the Instagram, that has absolutely morphed. It has become an amalgamation of photos of my own recipes, recipes I’ve made for other outlets – heyyyy, Candace! – and photography of food PR events I’ve become involved with over the past few years.
Any blog owner wants their audience to continue to remain engaged. Though my single-serve shakshuka recipe still keeps my traffic consistent – bless that recipe, HA! – I still want interesting content for both my regular readers and people that stumble across this lil’ thing. One thing that shocks me is how often a friend will mention that they do like *insert recipe here* from this blog, or how they can’t wait for a new recipe to be posted! It’s humbling, but almost puts a modicum of pressure upon me to log onto WordPress with some fresh stuff! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It is not easy to run a food blog on the side if you have a full-time 9 – 5 job like I do, and though some people can pay the bills with their food blogging, that ain’t happening with me. (Well, at least until food blogging can provide me with comprehensive health insurance, a 401k, and pension, AND a living wage! 😆) Instagram is seemingly easier to update with new non-recipe-related content…so…
I’m going to take a stab at adding occasional restaurant and product reviews here!
I took a poll on Instagram Stories – because I like to keep things as statistically correct as possible, clearly – and it seems like most of y’all would be amenable to this new content! YAY! 85% said “YASSS!” to new non-recipe content, and 69% said that restaurant content would be preferred over product content. I’d likely do both, but it’s good to know where the consensus lies.
Nothing I plan to post will be too outside of my own personal scope of what I do and don’t like – if Frito-Lay offered to pay off my student loans to review their newest type of Doritos, I’d sadly decline, though later kick myself for it – but I’m excited to see what new content I can share will y’all.
I just hope you like it, and feedback is always welcomed!
