After almost a week of trying to blog all of my meals and snacks, I’ve come to a conclusion: I just don’t like it! And here’s why:
Food blogging is time consuming.
Some of my favorite blogs snap a picture of every meal and I love to read them. But some of these bloggers are doing this for their job. I am not. I already work full time AND blog. So I found that my motivation really lacked as my blog became more a job than just for fun (which is what it is!)
I had thoughts of changing what it is I truly wanted to eat
I really do eat a lot of the same meals and for one reason: I enjoy it! I had pizza 4 days in a row this past week! That’s kind of crazy, but it’s what happens when you drink a margarita and then order pizza. I had so many leftovers! I don’t waste food and certainly not a perfectly delicious pizza. So I wanted to eat it 4 days in a row. And I did.
But after work last night I thought about concocting something else to eat simply to have something better to blog about. But I realized that I wanted to eat the pizza and didn’t want to cook and doing something only for the blog is silly. It’s my LIFE not a SHOW! I can eat what I want.
Yes, I am lazy and didn’t enjoy busting out my camera anytime I ate something. Last night I just gave up. I snapped a picture of my pizza for dinner but then went on to eat a bowl of cereal and a couple of handfuls of M&Ms. I was lazy to take a picture of that. I just didn’t feel like it. Now I know, I don’t have to take pictures of everything, but it made me realize that I won’t be that kind of blogger: One who literally snaps a picture of every morsel of food. It’s not my style.
I’ve gotta be ME
Whether that be at a fun, happening restaurant with interesting food and drinks:
Or in my Pizza Friday Uniform with a homemade Margarita for one:
Some bloggers make food blogging seem so effortless and that in itself is a skill because even with the little food blogging I did, it took some work. So those bloggers whose blogs have amazing pictures of their meals are working extra hard!
Like I said, I love blogs who showcase their meals when it’s truly their style of blogging. For me, it’s not. I’m glad I tried to challenge myself, but it further confirms the fact that I am just not cut out for food blogging. I gotta be me and my blog is more than food. It’s all aspects of health, which is more my style.
In conclusion you’ll still see some food blogging, but not every day. And if there is anything you want to know about my meals or anything in general on this blog you can always ask! I’d be happy to answer 🙂
Do you blog about every meal you eat?
