One year of blogging


One year ago, I published my very first blog post on Mums!. I still remember the foregoing brainstorming phase. I wanted to get everything right. The name. The introduction. The posts (I needed some ideas on stock, just in case). Shortly before the Easter holidays, I mustered all my courage and went online.

165 blog posts, 3’303 visitors, 2’884 likes and 158 comments later, it’s time to reflect. During the past year, I’ve repeatedly created content by combining experimental cooking and considerate plating with reflective writing and still life photography. By means of various social media platforms, I’ve reached readers world-wide. And the resonance has been awe-inspiring. Along the ongoing journey, I’ve continuously deepened my culinary knowledge and improved my technical skills. Sharing that with you, dear readers, has been amazing. Thank you for your endless endorsement and encouragement. Now, let’s have cake.

    Hi there β˜€οΈ and thank you for your comment πŸ™πŸ»
    To promote my blog, I’ve been active on various social media platforms in addition to WordPress. Instagram works best for me. I use (hash)tags for my posts and follow fellow bloggers and like and comment on their posts. Sometimes multiple times a day. It’s quite an effort, but it pays off nicely in terms of inspiring interaction.
    I really enjoy your blog, so keep up the good work πŸ–Š
    Best of luck πŸ€ and have a fabulous day 🌸
