Another ‘I know what you eat last summer’ post

I have seen a lot of bloggers lamenting how boring food blogs are.  And I do tend to agree with them.  There are excellents ones like those listed in my blogroll.  Off hand, I like to read local food blogs by  Boo, Babe, Foodcrazee because they have a style of their own. Boo’s excellent way of expressing the food and her helpful informations thrown in is very refreshing. It is almost like reading a food magazine.  Babe’s blog is for its simplicity and joy of a loving mother cooking for her boy-boy.   As for Foodcrazee, he is a chef and therefore, he wrote about foods that I am not likely to eat!  Like those huge abalones, for eg.

So, what I wanted to say is food blogs don’t have much high paying keywords in Adsense.  Though I do get a few clicks, the keywords are not high paying.  Therefore, if you are thinking of writing a food blog for income, forget it.  It is not worth it.

Writing a food blog takes passion.   Even homecooking can be very interesting like maR’s.  She is a Malaysian staying in UK and it is very nice to see what local dishes she cooks over there.

And one thing that I dislike about those posts ala ‘You know what I ate last night’ is the photos of the messy, empty cutleries, bones and shells everywhere.  Ewwwss…spare me the disgusting picture.
Ahem, I am  merely putting my views across.  No offence to anyone, if they can help it.

    Food blogs won’t make money at all, it’s not a market for Adwords advertisers.

    Food blogs are for people that love food, that’s all, like me, mine is half food blog 🙂

    Thanks for the nice pat on the back Lilian. Drats, it looks like I shld not look at writing a food blog for income since Adwords does not like it much.

    […] April lilian10:30 pmAdd comment I just had lamb shanks two nights ago. But I watch Nigella Bites on TV today and she makes stewing lamb shanks like child’s play.  So, I decided to try it myself.  Went to the supermarket and looked around.  Do you know that air flown meats are very expensive compared to frozen ones?

    Just stumpled upon your blog through performancing partner. Delicious blog you have. While I’m not much into cooking, but eating is my biggest hobby too.
