Satisfying the hunger in us all.Breads and Muffins / August 20, 2015
Social media has taken over our subconscious minds. We think far too much about whether or not we’ve posted often enough, with varied content that thrills, and/or spoken in a way that connects to our audience. There is the worry that our selfies were awkward; the spoon resting a little too contrived next to the plate and ruining the composition. But really!!! Who are we thinking about when we post? Sadly, ourselves and not those to whom we seek to fulfill. In our relentless pursuit of becoming viral by praying to our internet marketing deity, we are only speaking out to space.
Makes me nervous.
So, who is our audience? Who, beyond the faces of those friends and family we love, is really paying attention? Well, here’s the good news about being a food blogger. Your audience is everyone who eats. There’s something about a photo of delicious food that smooths our path through life and we can’t get enough of it. Nourishment can happen on many levels, and apparently the visual appetite is as insatiable as the physical one. And sometimes the word YUM is all we need to validate our experience.
Because this isn’t my full time hobby yet, (I hate it when your real job, isn’t your real job. Don’t you?) the postings must often revolve around the priorities of my life. And quite frankly, as much as I love to cook, write, photograph and develop recipes, I find myself realizing that walks with my husband do indeed trump sitting in front of my laptop working on the 140-characters-to-greatness quotient.
But you deserve to be fed! You deserve to have your virtual taste buds sated with a collection of organic obsessions. Ready? Scroll down and enjoy!
