The other day I talked with a blog friend about how readers affect our blog and I want to open this topic to all of you. I believe most of us began our blog to be a place to say our thoughts and just to entertain ourselves. When we have just few readers, the topics we address are mostly just concern to us. If we keep a food dairy, it’s mostly because it served just like a food dairy, for US! But as we gain more readers and read more other blogs, we might feel inclined to do certain things, talk certain topics, show certain pictures that you know you might catch more attention. I know I do, I know others do. I’m not saying that it’s bad, I just state a fact that I’m sure all of us are aware of. It’s hard to not worry about what other think. When hits goes below a number, I get worried, anxious and wondering why some readers stop reading my blog. But at the same time, I want my blog to be unique and do not have to follow any trend. How to balance that? How to keep the blog mostly for us and at the same time feel rewarded?
I had another productive day of work at home (so much more comfortable than my office). 7 hours seems to be the KEY number for me to balance work and good sleep! 😛
To use up my “failed” greek soy yogurt, I made a chocolate soy yogurt for breakfast.
Ingredients: yogurt + chia gel + cocoa powder + stevia
It looks just like my beloved dairy free chocolate mousse
topped with 1/2 apple and dragon fruit
It’s really delicious!!! Love dessert like breakkie! 😆
the other 1/2 apple + Almond butter
Lunch was leftovers: purple salad and asian noodles
Dinner featured baked salmon! My favorite fish and favorite way to eat it. Here’s how:
- soy sauce
- cooking wine
- ginger powder
- black pepper
- brown sugar
- add in: garlic, mushrooms, onion rings, shitake.
- Mix all seasoning together and brush the salmon,
- Fold it in aluminum paper
- Bake at 375 F for 15 min folded
- Open the folding and bake for another 5 min
Side was sauteed spinach, mushroom and chinese cabbage
That could be called a Comfort Food for me 🙂
