Hi guys! I’ve been thinking a lot about OHC lately and what I would like for it to become and what I would like to talk about. I’m sort of leaning away from the daily eats posts. Mostly because I don’t really have that much to talk about in regards to the minutia of my day. I ate, I walked Rocky, and I ate some more. The end.
And I’m just not really feeling those posts anymore. Part of the reason is that I also don’t want to bring in discussion topics in those posts. For me personally, I feel like discussion worthy topics should get their own posts to highlight them. I don’t know if that makes sense to anyone else but me. :p I am very much a compartmentalized type of personality. I like things to be neat and orderly. Things that are worth a big “discussion” should be in their own category while what I ate for lunch should be in its own category. Because of that mentality, my daily eats posts are full of nothing. The content is not there and I’m not feeling happy with them. Therefore I want to maybe put them away for a little while and focus on some other things.
What I would like to do is talk about varying topics in regards to food. I want to have more time to focus on Tips and Reviews but also recipes and my training. I’m thinking of putting up a weekly training post instead of daily. I haven’t worked out all the kinks yet, mostly I’m trying to feel my way through and discover what works and what I like doing.
Rose said something in a post the other day that a reader described her blog as a Life Blog with a food emphasis. This is what I would like OHC to be. I want it to be a Life Blog discussing lots of things with an emphasis on food and exercise. Where along with silly little life stories there are recipes and food reviews and so on. The OHC tagline is “Food, wine, running, life…” And I really should be sticking with that more I think. Right now I’m not feeling like my blog fits that tagline.
My daily eats posts were for me in the very beginning. They helped me keep track of what I was eating and work through my food issues so I could figure out what works for me and what does not. I’m now at a point where I’m pretty confident in my food choices and with knowing my body. For a while I kept them going because I thought that other people liked them and/or could benefit from them. However, now as I write them, I know there is nothing substantial there. The content isn’t good, or let me rephrase, I’m not happy with the content and therefore I don’t feel happy when I publish it. I feel like I’m writing it just to get it done and up.
That’s not really okay with me. Like some other bloggers, I would rather have quality over quanity here at OHC. I’ve got standards!
I’m just giving you a heads up in case you’re wondering why all of the sudden I’m just blabbing away instead of talking to you about smoothies. Of course Pizza Thursday will always get talked about because OHC started it and it’s exciting!
I hope that you will stick around but I understand if you don’t because the new content isn’t your thing. Feedback is always welcome!
