As a new food blogger, I wanted to try to find a way to pick a posting schedule that easy to stick to. and grow my audience.Since the focus is on cooking and food, I created two hashtags with weekly themes .
Now check out the website on Tuesdays for #TryMeTuseday and Thursdays for #TastyThursday. Tuesdays are about trying news, foods and ingredients and cooking techniques. Thursdays about my recipes or recipes by other bloggers and websites.
A bit more about how I cook now since the pandemic and why the blog was born….
This pas March has been a year since out lives has changed because of COVID-19
The pandemic has pushed a lot of us out of our comfort zones when it comes to cooking. Over the past year we’ve had to become better shoppers, waste-reducers, meal-stretchers.
I started cooking outside my comfort zone and doing things I never used to do. I would always just pop into the store, grab my ingredients, and then wing it, but the pandemic caused me to get in the habit of meal planning. It made me more organized.
I have learned to understand ingredients and cooking techniques a little more If I am not familiar with something or a technique. I will first learn more about it, broadening my knowledge and then tackle it.
Happy Cooking all!
