Changes

One of the most challenging things about writing a blog is coming up with fresh and interesting content.  I love the community that has been developed thanks to reading and writing blogs and I don't want to lose that nor, especially by boring you to death.  So I'm trying to come up with some changes in format that will keep things interesting for you, the reader.

I am thinking about writing a "Meatless Monday" recipe each week, especially since we are supposed to be trying to avoid processed foods during the month of October.  Honestly, I think limited processed foods all the time is a really good idea, hopefully this initiative for October will be helpful in raising awareness.

I've thought about doing a Wordless Wednesday post like The Smart Cat does.  Her pictures are so great.  Of course with "wordless" in the subject I feel like I shouldn't comment or keep my comments quiet out of respect.  I know that's silly of me, it's just how I think and something to do with liking silence.

I've also thought about writing a weekly "how to" post that discusses processes and techniques.  I might even make more videos in order to show the steps.

Then I thought that the best way to keep this blog interesting to readers is to ask you what you'd like to see here.  What would you be interested in reading about?

Thanks.

  1. I think you share a lot of great information. I like the recipes people share on their blogs, it's hard to go looking for a food blog because there are so many, but random recipes from the bloggers I already read is a nice treat. We gave up processed foods a while back and eat no meat so a meatless Monday would be fun. My new effort is to see if I can come home from the grocery without any cardboard boxes. That's a challenge!

    1. Thank you Tracey, I love the idea of trying to come home without food in cardboard (or that tastes like cardboard). I'm assuming that it's not so much an issue with the box as the types of foods that come in them. Like you can get dry pasta in a box that can be recycled or in plastic that cannot, given that choice I select the box. But a box of processed cereal, no, not bringing that home.

  3. I like the meatless Monday recipe idea... I am always looking for new recipes that don't involve meat. We are by no means vegan or vegetarian, but do try to have one or two meatless meals a week as well as eating as few processed foods as possible.
    A how to day is also interesting to me, I love to see other artist's processes.

  4. I'd love to hear about your meatless recipes and I am always game for how to's since I've learned just about all I know about clay from blogs, reading, research, and experimenting at home. Ha.

  6. Hi Lori! I love everything you post - just hearing about what you are doing or want to share is as nice as a visit (almost). :)

    I would love to see some demos of your processes, even if it's not weekly.

  8. Thnaks for the very nice compliment and link. Wordless Wednesday can be found at wordlesswednesday(-dot-)blogspot I usually link but I think a lot of people don't bother. If you go to the site you will see that many posters are not terribly wordless. I am more of a purist. I like the idea of a photo existing on it's own with nothing more than a title Maybe I should do a post about this. ;)

  9. You're welcome. I have seen that many of the comments are rather verbose, which is fun. I just feel like I should be wordless while I'm commenting, not an easy task.
